Montana State University’s Interactive Campus Maps And Safety App

Most college administrators would commission illustrators to create Campus College Maps to provide freshmen students with directions. However, the 3D illustrative University map illustration is so impressive that they are used as artwork on a large scale. Do not be surprised if you find the illustrated map hanging on the walls of the waiting room or administrative office.

Montana State University has interactive campus maps that students can use to access their location. However, the university has added something new this summer. The university’s safety campus app, Safe Cats was launched and can be accessed through a student’s smartphone. The app was implemented to increase student safety inside the campus.

According to an official release from the university, the app was a joint effort between MSU’s student government and campus police. The Safe Cats app debuted in time for incoming freshmen class this summer. During the orientation festivities, Frank Parrish, chief of police of Montana State University said that while the campus is relatively safe, they have to look for ways to improve.

There are many campus apps available in the market but Safe Cats has a hallmark feature that allows the user to contact the police through a push on a button. It also includes a “friend walk” feature that allows users to monitor their friend’s commute and safe arrival across campus in real time.

The Safe Cats app includes additional features like an emergency button that can automatically dial 911. The Silent witness enables student to make an anonymous report to university police through calls or message. Emergency Action features allow users to review plans for certain incidents that include active shooting, chemical spills, medical emergencies and extreme weather conditions. During a suicide crisis, a user can text or call National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for valuable assistance.

Universities make the extra effort to improve campus life for students. Aside from safety apps, they provide incoming freshmen with 3D University map illustration in the welcome packet. The illustrated campus map makes it exciting for a student to discover the campus because it includes artistic elements and striking details. The illustrated map is easy to use because it highlights buildings and landmarks in a creative way.

Asian Canadian Lawyer Group Gaining Momentum

Lawyers come in all shapes and sizes, and any criminal lawyer in Brampton or anywhere across the world look to find a group that can help them find clients, make sure they’re up to par with regulations and standards, as well as to find others like them.

Asian Canadian lawyers have been paying attention to the New Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers Ontario for this reason, which has been gaining attention recently thanks to their growing momentum, which included an appearance in the Supreme Court, a visit from the Chief Justice, and even acknowledgement from parliament.

FACL President Gerald Chan says that they’ve been working hard to build momentum, and he’s honored to take on a leadership position during this time, pointing to the moment when the Secretary of the Minister of Justice asking about their position regarding an issue being tackled by the Criminal Lawyers’ Association.

One of the key issues the FACL is looking to deal with is the immediate challenge of advocacy, which Chan says it hopes to deal with using the legal skills of the organizations’ members, working to achieve greater equity, diversity and inclusion in the law community. Notably, the Law Society of Ontario has been mandating that lawyers sign a statement saying that they’ll be promoting diversity and inclusion principles. FACL Ontario has thrown its support with the requirement, but more than a few members of the LSO’s board of benchers are casting doubt on the matter.

Chan notes that it’s interesting time for equity, diversity and inclusion for the lawyer community, and even a criminal lawyer in Brampton would say that it is also a difficult time, given how the recent bencher elections and all of the debates regarding the statement of principles.

Chan notes that the FACL’s advocacy has taken different forms in the past, with engaging with law society and Convocation among the means they’ve used. Now, more than ever, Chan says that it’s key, but he also notes that their advocacy is more than that, and he believes that it shouldn’t be restricted to that.

Chan admits that he recognizes that the opposition has used to fight back against the SOP, but he says that the FACL disagrees. He notes how all lawyers swear to uphold the oath to promote justice is something no one really argues, or debates about. In his eyes, promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion aren’t any different.

What Companies Should Do To Promote Workplace Of Harmony

Bringing together different individuals to work in one place to achieve one goal is not an easy feat. The same dedication is needed when doing team building activities except for the fact that there are consequences should the team failed to work with harmony on their given roles. While we have come a long way, there are still many improvements that need to be practiced and implemented in order for a working environment to become an equal platform for every worker regardless of gender.

It is recommended for businesses to share their stories if they wanted to recruit more employees. It is best to tackle why your place of business is a suitable match for women looking to expand their experience. This can be accomplished by implementing regulations that are family-friendly and committed to the equality between men and women. To create a culture of equality, it is important to start from the top. This will let the public know that the company is doing everything possible to promote gender diversity.

In order for women workers to remain in the company, they must be given options. They should be offered as much flexibility without going over the boundary of the company’s rules and regulations but they should also be given autonomy to make them feel like they still own their times as mothers for their children. The company should also look at the results of a task done rather than on the number of hours spent on it.

In order for the workplace to become a place of harmony for all gender, the company leaders should keep in mind that women should be given freedom as to their choices rather than basing on what other people think they should be doing. At the end of the day, men and women only wanted to receive the same things – reasonable pay, promotion and fair evaluation. Organizing events for team building activities will be helpful for everyone as they try to see eye to eye. It is essential for companies to realize that for women, tension is a risk if work collides with their personal lives.

First and foremost, there should be respect between the removalist and the client. A professional removalist said that everything they do is meant to make the process easier. The job is often undertaken by the unskilled therefore different kinds of individuals. This means that you will meet not just the smartest people but also the average ones. This does not discount the fact that everyone should be given the same level of respect. The job is rewarding which is why many choose to do it but the risks involved is also great as they are using their body to accomplish the tasks.

Professional removalists also shared important tips to follow when packing their belongings.

  • Flat-pack furniture should be disassembled prior to moving because they are not designed for moving and not as durable.
  • Make sure the boxes have tape on two sides because it helps reinforce them when stacking inside the truck.
  • Drawers should not be transported with items inside. Trinkets inside drawers should be packed in a separate box because it is dangerous to move a heavy drawer full of items.
  • Do not expect the removalists to help you with packing when you did not pay for a packing service. The items should be ready to be moved on the agreed time as it takes up their time to wait if packing is not done yet.
  • According to professional removals in Sydney, it is not recommended to water your pot plants a day before the move as it can be very heavy.
