The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2021-08-03T02:24:39Z An Aussie first: Swoop Aero is coming to the USA for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with their newly unveiled aircraft Kite™ 2021-08-03T02:24:39Z an-aussie-first-swoop-aero-is-coming-to-the-usa-for-federal-aviation-administration-faa-with-their-newly-unveiled-aircraft-kite Swoop Aero was founded to transform how the world moves by making access to the skies seamless. We provide the world’s leading technology platform for sustainable, reliable, and scalable drone logistics, which we’ve used extensively in DR Congo, Malawi, and Scotland during the pandemic to support the COVID response, including transporting COVID tests and COVID vaccines. We are launching our most advanced aircraft Kite ™, and we’re bringing it to the USA for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification, which will propel drone logistics into new heights, continuing to make access to the skies seamless. Kite ™ is Swoop Aero’s most advanced aircraft. But it is only one cog that makes the wheel turn in the advanced technology platform, which provides the full technology stack, including hardware, software, and supporting infrastructure. Real-time tracking, supply chain data, capture, and analytics are provided within an integrated technology platform. Bringing together the best learnings of unparalleled operational and real-world experience from Swoop Aero’s ‘Kookaburra’— the existing aircraft that has clocked up 10,000 flights and counting— the Kite™ is built to unlock the skies above cities. Emerging from an Australian start-up, we believe the Kite™ will be the most advanced aircraft of its type being progressed through the  FAA certification program. This means that the Kite is capable of true airspace integration bringing a step change to breadth and scope of RPAS operations, and positioning Swoop Aero as the Qantas of drone logistics. This is supported by reciprocal Type Certification activities in Europe and Asia-Pacific to ensure that Swoop Aero can mobilise operations anywhere, anytime. The Kite has been developed by Swoop Aero’s highly skilled and experienced team of Australian-based engineers to accommodate swift and sustainable manufacture and production requirements to scale effectively with the unique needs of impact-driven organisations across the world. The Kite can travel up to 200km per hour and can operate across geographical ranges of more than 180 kilometres on a single battery charge with an increased payload capacity of up to 5 kgs. The driving force behind the Kite is Swoop Aero’s technology platform, which provides the full technology stack including hardware, software, and supporting infrastructure to customers. Real-time tracking, supply chain data, capture, and analytics are provided within an integrated technology platform. Back at Swoop Aero’s Melbourne-based HQ, a Digital Twin drives insights into system reliability and performance to deliver world-leading airworthiness outcomes through the use of AI. Swoop Aero’s new aircraft is a powerhouse that brings together Swoop Aero’s lessons in over four years of operations across seven countries. With Swoop Aero’s operational capacity fully finessed for versatility, the Kite is designed with precision to suit the needs of communities in a range of markets, unlocking the skies for critical tasks such as: Delivering pharmaceuticals, blood for urgent transfusion, automatic external defibrillators (AED) or personal protective equipment (PPE) into emergencies, and assisting with disaster response; Minimising human interactions in the supply chain when isolation or social distancing is required; Providing fast, safe and efficient transport between hospitals, including protecting organs; Capturing aerial data for coastal, forestry, or terrain monitoring, as well as climate science and/or extreme weather management teams, and; Contributing to search and rescue operations, including in wilderness and coastline areas and during extreme weather events. “Our vision is for a world where seamless supply chains bring emotional and economic prosperity to all they serve. We have developed a sophisticated, agile, and robust technology platform that is the complete infrastructure needed for drone logistics at scale and proven it in the real world. That platform, alongside the Kite, will support delivering our company’s vision as we strive to provide a service to 100 million people in 2025.” said Swoop Aero’s Chief Executive Officer, Eric Peck. “The release and unveiling of the Kite is the sum of listening to our partners’ needs’ and learning from our extensive experience across six countries and three continents to develop a pioneering solution that makes access to the skies seamless to address critical gaps in access to essential healthcare, emergency response, and search and rescue”. The next generation of aircraft will spur the rapid expansion of the Swoop Aero air logistics platform globally, including across Swoop Aero’s existing network operations in Malawi, DR Congo, Mozambique, and Australia. It will enable Swoop Aero’s expansion into the American, European, and Asian markets. With the successful acquisition of FAA type certification for the Kite aircraft expected to occur through 2022, Kite will advance Swoop Aero’s plans to scale the production of Kite™ into new and emerging growth markets, including medical commodity delivery, search and rescue operations, emergency management activities, and mapping and monitoring activities. “The technology and long-term vision alignment we see in private capital are what has continued to drive us down this path,” says Eric. “We’re not focused on short-term returns. We are looking beyond the next 5 years, to how Swoop Aero will become a leader not only in the growing medical logistics market, which is already growing exponentially, and a one-stop air logistics company in a market set to exceed $90 billion by 2030.

It was help from other mothers who told me it would get easier as time goes on, and with the support of my husband, friends and family I was able to remind myself that was true,” Emma said.   For the Australian Breastfeeding Association, World Breastfeeding Week is a valuable opportunity to highlight how essential a village of support – especially fathers, partners and other carers – is to achieve breastfeeding success.   It is also a welcome opportunity to raise awareness among decision-makers, workplaces and the wider community that it is the responsibility of all to help increase breastfeeding rates and ensure more mothers have breastfeeding success.

When there's a hard lockdown, it affects almost every single industry and sector of the market. Although there are a few stand-out performers, most businesses and states suffer under the restrictions. Melbourne has experienced strict and frequent lockdowns during COVID, which has seen limited sectors remaining open. A new economic analysis conducted by Deloitte Access found that the virus had impacted Victoria the hardest of all the states in Australia. After a total of five lockdowns, the Melbourne CBD had seen a reduction in city GDP of 53% ($39.8 billion) in 2020. In addition, the Deloitte report noted, "The city's high share of professional office-based workers has made Melbourne–CBD more susceptible to longer-lasting economic impacts of COVID-19 through a larger uplift in remote working". This loss of CBD activity then flows to retail and hospitality venues throughout the city and further depresses economic activity. Simon Ingleson, CEO of RosterElf, an Online Rostering Software provider, has seen the challenges businesses face under lockdowns. "We have a clear view into the internal workings and staffing numbers of businesses across Australia and the world. We've seen rapid changes to future rosters as lockdowns were announced with some businesses cutting back by 50% and others wiping weeks of staff rostering out altogether". When asked about the concerns businesses have during lockdowns, Simon explained, "It's uncertainty; they're rostering staff and planning stock purchases not knowing if tomorrow the situation will change." Government support and clear directives throughout this period have been critical in helping businesses survive. Clear directions and firm policy have given companies certainty and allowed business owners to forecast the coming conditions better. For example, Simon noted, "Lockdowns occurring in Western Australia and South Australia that were fast and hard had shown less devastation on clients using RosterElf. They went through the lockdowns with higher levels of staff retention and lower levels of business closures." Businesses in the hospitality and entertainment industries have seen decreases of 50% to 100% of their revenue, and staffing numbers through lockdowns. However, proactive enterprises have shifted to home delivery, take away, and online models to remain viable. Simon noted, "Businesses on RosterElf that adapted during lockdowns were able to bounce back faster, increase staffing numbers earlier, and regain market traction." Logistics companies, the medical industry, customers with substantial exposure to online retailing, and home improvement businesses have all performed well in a post COVID world. As a result, RosterElf has seen increases in staff numbers on Rosters across these sectors and has also seen significant increases in enquiries from companies looking to manage the rapid growth in staffing numbers. Despite the economic shocks, the City of Melbourne has been able to act swiftly to accelerate the city's recovery. The analysis found the Melbourne's CBD is forecast to return to being one of the nation's fastest-growing economies in the coming years. Before COVID-19, Melbourne's gross regional product (GRP) was $74 billion. After a drop to $32.9 billion in 2020, the Melbourne CBD is projected to grow 16.9% in 2021 and 32.9% in 2022, returning to a pre-COVID $74 billion in 2024. While the lockdowns have been hard, Businesses across Melbourne have weathered the storm. Backed by a responsive government and a desire to improve operations during the lockdowns, they are ready for rapid recovery.

Likewise, we are setting up the maternity clothing to resemble a shop - without the price tag,” said Janet, who has been coordinating the service since 2019.  “With the help of many talented volunteers, the vision is becoming a reality. We rely entirely on donations for the items that we give to clients”. “All our second hand items are sorted by these wonderful volunteers to ensure they are of a suitable quality and safety to give to clients, and then washed or cleaned”. “Our most needed items, which are in short supply, are maternity clothing that appeals to younger mums-to-be, toiletries (maternity pads, breast pads, baby bath solution etc), capsules, and prams,” Janet added. Pregnancy can be a time of uncertainty no matter what the circumstances. No woman should have to feel alone or helpless during this time - together with emamaco and Pregnancy Assistance Bunbury, you can help make sure they’re not.

All Weather Shelters Ask the Question, “Insulated Vs Single Skin Patio Roofs – Why do They Matter”? 2021-07-31T01:23:08Z all-weather-shelters-ask-the-question-insulated-vs-single-skin-patio-roofs-why-do-they-matter As All Weather Shelters tell it, the most significant advantage that insulated patio roofing has over single skin roofing is temperature control. The insulating material between the two skins reduces heat flow, providing you with more comfortable temperatures in cold and warm weather.    Patios are the marriage of the indoors and outdoors. They give you a pleasant view and feel of the outdoors while keeping you in a safe, comfortable environment. What gives a patio its versatility as an indoor and outdoor space is its roof.    For most patio building projects, there are two kinds of patio covers: the single skin roofing and the insulated roofing. Both single skin and insulated roofing are utilised in patio-building applications, depending on your preferences and requirements. As its name suggests, single skin patio roofing consists of only one layer of steel, painted over with a high gloss finish. It is specifically built to reflect sunlight and is extremely lightweight.    The most significant advantage that insulated patio roofing has over single skin roofing is temperature control. The insulating material between the two skins reduces heat flow, providing you with more comfortable temperatures in cold and warm weather. With an insulated roofing system, you can minimise both heating and cooling costs in enclosed outdoor living areas.    Single skin and insulated roofing give homeowners countless benefits and outstanding results. Both roofing types give protection from sunlight and the elements, enhancing overall comfort in your patio. However, insulated roofing stands out because of its sleek look, versatility and temperature control qualities. Due to the layer of insulated material between the roof skins, it can keep your outdoor living space warm during winter and cool during summer.    The team of experienced administrators and installers at All Weather Shelters pride themselves in advising, designing and building structures to add to family life style, so with this in mind, please take a moment to find out more about carports Melbourne and opening roofs Melbourne by going to the website at http://www.allweathershilters.com.au .  Acorn Experts seek to prevent companies paying up to 59% more than they need to for an LMS 2021-07-30T05:02:54Z acorn-experts-seek-to-prevent-companies-paying-up-to-59-more-than-they-need-to-for-an-lms When it comes to picking a learning management system, pricing is the deciding factor for many organisations. So why do many end up paying 59% more than they need to? Seeking to better inform the market and reduce this figure, the Acorn internal subject matter experts have crafted a detailed guide which explores pricing models, hidden costs and how organisations can find their best solutions. Acorn is a product of Pursuit Technology, and the full article can be found on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/3orve47     When it comes to pricing models for an LMS, there are two options: cloud hosted and locally hosted. For cloud hosted platforms, pricing commonly revolves around pay-per-learner, pay-per-active-user and pay-as-you-go models. For locally hosted platforms you’ll find subscription, single payment and freemium models.    Beyond pricing models, there are always hidden costs organisations will want to look out for. Sometimes these aren’t found until the final proposal. They include things like maintenance, training, support, content creation and implementation.    Conducting due-diligence is important when it comes to finding value and the article is quick to note this. Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director) says even “just viewing a vendor’s pricing plans doesn’t give you the whole picture of cost.”    “Number of users is usually what upfront pricing plans are based on. It will pay to push back on things that will affect your day-to-day use of the LMS, like the cost of system maintenance, content creation, data migration, and not just support, but training too.”    The article guides organisations on what they need to define and how this will help them find the best-fitting solution.     In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy LMS Pricing Comparison Guide for potential users to weigh up their options and expose hidden costs.    Pursuit Technology is a software development company which seeks to streamline systems through innovative solutions and unlock the potential of the workforce. Pursuit is all about putting the customer at the centre of everything we create. Since the inception of our Acorn LMS seven years ago, we’ve worked with everyone from local businesses to federal government agencies. In that time, we’ve maintained a 100% retention rate. Our Acorn LMS contains all the tools needed to support workforces – from onboarding and inductions through to compliance and ongoing development.  Acorn Experts seek to develop market knowledge on eLearning platforms 2021-07-30T05:00:53Z acorn-experts-seek-to-develop-market-knowledge-on-elearning-platforms eLearning platforms have diversified exponentially since the late 90s, meaning the market has become flooded with a multitude of niche products. The Acorn internal subject matter experts recognise this makes it confusing to find the best solution. In response, they’ve moved to release an informative guide to help organisations understand and evaluate different platforms. The full article is available now on their Acorn Labs blog: https://bit.ly/3tzG8W8     In Co-Founder & Managing Director Blake Proberts’ words: “What’s in a name? A great deal, when you consider that ‘learning’ and ‘course’ represent an entirely different use case when put in front of the term ‘management system’.   “Not to mention the price difference between eLearning products can be vast too once you factor in the cost of research, implementation, support, maintenance and buy-in.”    Acorn’s article is all about breaking things down. It details commoditised content vs business training. It explores the difference between online learning platforms and online course platforms. It wraps up by detailing the difference between a learning management system, learning content management system, authoring tool and eLearning portal. These four items have their own specific functions but can interact with one another.     This content on the surface looks quite daunting and technical, but Acorn’s article aims to explain everything in a simple and direct manner. Beyond giving those who may not be clued in on eLearning platforms some grounded knowledge, the article also features guidance on procuring a solution which best fits the organisation.      In addition to being a useful information resource, the article also provides a handy LMS Feasibility Study for potential users to help ensure what seems like the perfect LMS, actually is.      Pursuit Technology is a software development company which seeks to streamline systems through innovative solutions to unlock the potential of the workforce.
