Updated: 11:34 AM Our city will continue to be one of the safest big cities in the nation with Chief David Nisleit leading @SanDiegoPD. Besides being my pick, Nisleit has overwhelming support from community leaders and his peers in law enforcement. Congrats Chief!— Kevin Faulconer (@Kevin_Faulconer) February 27, 2018Assistant Chief David Nisleit, whose father was a longtime San Diego police captain, has risen through the ranks of the department since 1988, including assignments focused on gangs, sex crimes, narcotics and homicide. Nisleit said Thursday that he will focus on solving the department’s chronic shortage of officers and boosting community policing to soften racial tensions.“We cast a wide net and we had some great external candidates wanting to come here, but Chief Nisleit was far and beyond the No. 1 choice,” Faulconer said during a Thursday morning interview. “People have said they want professionalism, they want transparency and they want somebody who knows San Diego, and Chief Nisleit hits all of those marks.”While some lobbied for an external hire to bring new ideas and leadership strategies to the department, Faulconer said promoting Nisleit will mean a smooth transition from retiring Chief Shelley Zimmerman.“He’s going to be able to jump in with both feet, have the respect of the department, the respect of the officers and the respect of the community, which is of first and foremost importance,” the mayor said.Nisleit, 52, said it is a privilege and honor to be chosen by Faulconer as the next chief.He said helping the department fill a rash of 200 officer vacancies will be his top priority, adding that he’d like to see the department become more ethnically diverse.Local leaders praise Faulconer’s choice for police chief“We need the best and the brightest and we want them to be from this community, from all over the community,” he said. “That’s going to be a top priority for me. I really want to do a more diverse recruitment.” Ed Lenderman Congratulations to Asst Chief Nisleit on your confirmation as our next @SanDiegoPD Chief! I look forward to working with you to support and protect our officers and our neighborhoods. cc— Chris Cate (@chrisjcate) February 27, 2018Large pay raises of at least 25 percent given to officers in December will go a long way toward helping solve the problem, Nisleit said.The department is also launching a national recruiting campaign, increasing the size of its police academies and offering signing bonuses to officers from other law enforcement agencies.Nisleit says his goal is to fill the 200 vacancies and bring the department up to full staffing by 2020.He said pay issues created most of the vacancies, but he cited other factors.“It’s a little bit of everything,” he said. “Some of it’s our competitive pay package, which wasn’t there but is there now, and some of it’s the very low unemployment rate. Some of it is a little bit of the negative image of law enforcement right now, but we’re going to change all that.”Nisleit said he also plans to focus on racial profiling in the wake of a San Diego State University study that found blacks and Hispanics get searched more often after getting pulled over by San Diego police.“It comes down to training, it comes down to talking about procedural justice, and it comes down to talking about implicit bias of our officers,” said Nisleit, noting that San Diego officers receive more training in this area than national standards.But he said softening racial tensions, which are most pronounced in communities south of Interstate 8, will also require a different approach from officers.“We are going to work very hard on community relations,” he said. “I’m going to really stress to the officers that it’s about getting out of your car, saying ‘hello.’ The officers need to know they’re part of the community and the community needs to accept the officers are part of the community.” Congratulations to Chief Nisleit and @CityofSanDiego on your unanimous appointment to Chief of Police. I am excited to usher in a new era of effective and transparent community policing. pic.twitter.com/zHdFgS3IKP— @barbarabryD1 (@barbarabryd1) February 27, 2018Faulconer agreed.“There is no substitute for face-to-face communication,” he said.Nisleit was among six finalists for the job who answered questions from a panel of community leaders and a separate panel of law enforcement experts last month in sessions closed to the public.The community leaders represented a variety of local organizations, including the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Asian Pacific American Coalition and the Anti-Defamation League.The law enforcement experts, who were joined on their panel by some of Faulconer’s top staffers, included San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, La Mesa Police Chief Walt Vasquez and Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams.Faulconer has been criticized for a lack of transparency during the selection process, particularly his decision not to reveal the names of most of the interview panelists until after the new chief is selected. The candidates also are not being identified.The mayor’s staff contends revealing the names of panelists before the selection would have made those individuals vulnerable to being lobbied by prospective candidates or special interest groups during the process.Critics counter that revealing the names of panelists would have made the panelists and the mayor listen to public input and be more accountable.The mayor released the names of every member of both panels on Thursday after announcing his selection of Nisleit.San Diego releases names of police chief interview panelistsNisleit lives in the suburban San Diego community of Sabre Springs with his wife of 27 years, Darlene. The couple has three grown children, including a son, Ryan, who recently joined the Police Department as an officer.His hobbies include distance running, cycling and golf. He has run 18 marathons, including Boston, New York and Chicago.Nisleit received a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Redlands.Zimmerman must retire in March because she’s reached the five-year limit on working after joining the city’s deferred retirement option program. She praised Nisleit as a worthy successor on Thursday.“He is an exceptional, proven leader who has given his all to our department and city,” she said.Nisleit, who is not part of the deferred retirement option program, said he plans to serve as chief for five or six years, which he called the typical tenure of a big city police chief.Nisleit’s annual salary is $147,790 and would rise to $205,000 if he is confirmed as chief.That’s nearly $30,000 higher than Zimmerman’s salary of $176,456, because an analysis the city conducted before launching the national search showed the salary for chief needed to be higher to attract top-level candidates.Police chief salaries from around the region: Oceanside, $227,958; Chula Vista, $217,183; El Cajon, $197,392; National City, $197,224; Escondido, $194,978; Coronado, $192,168; and Carlsbad, $189,003.

Worlds first Chromebook Enterprise from Dell took close to 2 years to

first_imgDell Latitude 5400 Chromebook Enterprise. Sarah Tew/CNET Chromebooks — laptops that run on Google’s Chrome OS — are a growing part of the global PC market. The devices have consumed a large part of the education market in the past few years and have steadily pushed into the business world. Dell announced Monday the world’s first Chromebook Enterprise two-in-one and laptop to help solidify Chrome OS’ business presence.The two devices are designed to satisfy the IT execs faced with a new world that demands choice, said Brett Hansen, VP of Dell client software and general manager data security. “They want to be able to choose environments that make the most sense for either my organization, my department or even an individual.” Within that construct, Dell started conversations with Google about Chrome.Google had been talking with many businesses that wanted their workforce both using the cloud and a modern operating system, said Eve Phillips, Google’s group product manager for Chrome OS Commercial. “Things get lost, they’re not secure, real laptops get left places, for all of these reasons — for end users and IT — there are tons of benefits” for moving to a cloud-based OS.”At the same time,” Phillips added, “organizations also want to take advantage of what the cloud offers without throwing away everything they’ve got.”04-dell-latitude-5300-2-in-1-chromebook-enterpriseDell Latitude 5300 two-in-one Chromebook Enterprise. Sarah Tew/CNET Chromebook Enterprise aims to solve this from a software perspective with both Chrome OS and the enterprise features it enables, as well as combining it with the hardware, support and sale infrastructure from Dell. “It’s bringing all of the pieces together that organizations have grown to expect along with the modern OS of Chrome devices,” Phillips said.Dell and Google have been working on the extensive joint effort for close to two years. “To really get the benefits of both companies, there were things we had to do differently,” Phillips said. Those included integrating the security of verified boot and Google’s boot security chip into the hardware as well as enabling all of Dell’s support infrastructure.03-dell-latitude-5400-chromebook-enterprise Sarah Tew/CNET For Dell’s part, in addition to its hardware and support, the company is making broader adoption easier. “Right out of the gate we’re going to sell this in 50 countries and we’ll have 10 different keyboard languages,” Hansen said. And then there are the two devices themselves — a traditional clamshell and a two-in-one — which are designed as mainstream devices developed for a larger workforce.Built for durability, they’re made from carbon fiber and can be easily serviced by an IT department. They’re also highly configurable with everything from a Celeron up to eighth-generation Intel Core processors, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and enterprise-class PCIe NVMe SSD drives up to 1TB. The 14-inch Latitude 5400’s battery can last up to 20 hours, while the 13-inch Latitude 5300 two-in-one can go for up to 14 hours, depending on configuration and tasks.Other benefits include unified endpoint management with VMware’s Workspace One, a revamped Google Admin panel with significantly faster load times and the option to enable managed Linux environments on Chromebooks.The Latitude 5400 price will start at $699 and the Latitude 5300 starts at $819.

Daimler gets goahead for open road tests of selfdriving truck

first_imgClose Nevada has given Daimler AG, the worlds biggest truck maker, the go-ahead to test its self-driving heavy freight truck for the first time on the open road in ordinary traffic, the two sides announced on Tuesday (6 May).Daimler has previously shown off its prototype autonomous truck in Europe on a closed section of German autobahn. The truck maker says self-driving, or autonomous, trucks will help freight companies save money on fuel and increase safety on the roads.In order for Daimler to get the nod from Nevada, the truck, which will be under its Freightliner brand, underwent 10,000 miles of testing. The vehicle will now undergo testing under real road conditions.Daimler, which with its Mercedes brand has been at the forefront of German efforts to counter Googles advances in driverless cars, says it sees at least as much potential for automation in freight transportation.Daimler is also not alone in pushing automation technology for heavy-duty trucks. Swedens Scania, a unit of Volkswagen, is among peers working on platooning technology that allows several trucks to travel in tight convoy with a sole human driver in the lead vehicle.Daimler has previously said its truck model still requires human oversight while freeing the driver to perform back-office tasks such as handling bookings and billing, or planning future itineraries.last_img read more

Air New Zealand had woman removed from plane for refusing to watch

first_img WELLINGTON — Air New Zealand has become known for its over-the-top safety videos over the years, which range from big-budget nods to ‘The Hobbit’ to hilarious survival shorts starring Bear Grylls.But as fun and eye-catching as these videos are, the airline has learned that it still can’t force passengers to watch them. Or can it?On a recent flight from Wellington to Auckland, a female passenger was allegedly removed from the plane by police for failing to watch the inflight safety video.A police spokesperson told Newshub that “the passenger will receive an infringement notice under Civil Aviation Authority rules relating to the use of a cellphone.”According to reports, the woman was seated in the exit row but ignored flight attendants’ requests to pay attention. Said one witness: “A flight attendant said very patiently ‘Can you please watch what’s happening because this is the exit row?’ The flight attendant was super kind and kept asking her, but the woman put her fingers in her ears.”More news:  Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedThe pilot eventually was forced to turn the plane around and return to the gate prior to takeoff, at which point the woman was escorted off the aircraft.Despite the woman’s obvious disregard for her safety and those around her, the news prompted renewed backlash against Air New Zealand’s Hollywood-esque videos. Another passenger on the flight who reportedly spoke to the Herald had some choice words for the airline:“I have to say that if watching the safety video is so crucial and you can be escorted off the plane, maybe Air New Zealand should stop making ‘Rachel Hunter ice cream ad’ safety videos. Just make a short video that is compulsory to watch and let people know if they don’t watch the video, the police will come and take them away,” said the passenger.New Zealand First MP Shane Jones is also a critic, calling the carrier’s previous safety ‘rap’ video, which was performed by Kiwi artists and set to the tune of Run DMC’s 80s hit, ‘It’s Tricky’, a “juvenile mish-mash” that trivializes safety.More news:  Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next month“Tourists are confused. They can’t hear it. It’s a lame attempt at entertainment and it’s a type of entertainment that’s toneless. It’s cringe culture, really,” he said.The rap video caused so much controversy that Air New Zealand was forced to axe it less than six months after its debut.
