Deutsche Bahn says in a few years some of its trains wont need drivers.
I estimate that by 2021 or so, we will be able to have a portion of our network that drive completely automatically, Deutsche Bahn chairman Rudiger Grube told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

.

He said the company has started preparing its drivers for the fact trains in the future will no longer need them.

.

The role of the train driver and the train controller will increasingly merge in the future, Grube told German newspaper WirtschaftsWoche.

According to the Deutsche Bahn CEO, the company has begun talks with labor representatives and unions. The employee organizations and unions recognize that the digitalization of the world is changing things, said Grube.

The pilot project for driverless trains has already started at a test track in the Ore Mountains, near the Czech border.

Northwest Tribal Leaders Highlight Risks of Oil Trains

MOSIER, Ore. (AP)  Leaders of several Pacific Northwest tribes gathered Thursday near the site of last weeks fiery oil train wreck in Oregon to condemn the shipping of fossil fuels through the Columbia River Gorge, a scenic homeland and sacred fishing ground for the Yakama Nation and others over the millennia.

.

We do not want fossil fuels at all coming through the Columbia River Gorge at all, said Yakama Nation Chairman JoDe Goudy. We truly see what is at hand.  We are sacrificing and putting at risk the long-term benefit and well-being of future generations, our children, our grandchildren, those yet to come.

.

A 96-car train carrying volatile crude oil from the Northern Plains Bakken region to Tacoma, Washington, derailed June 3 along the Columbia River, which forms most of the boundary between Washington and Oregon. No one was hurt, but four cars caught fire, prompting the evacuation of a nearby school, forcing the closure of an interstate, and enraging local officials and residents. Some of the oil made it to the river, where it was captured by absorbent booms, officials said.

.

The Yakama and other tribes have opposed the movement of oil and other fossil fuels through the Columbia Gorge, a canyon carved out of the regions volcanic rock by the river and by violent Ice Age floods. Oil trains pose grave threats to public safety, the environment and their treaty-reserved fishing rights, the tribes say.

.

snip

.

The tribal leaders said they were especially sad to be gathering to discuss the derailment on the 161st anniversary of the U.S. governments treaty with the Yakamas, an event that was to be marked with a weekend of celebrations including a parade and powwow. The pollution caused by oil spills threatens the fishing rights reserved in the treaty, the tribe said.

Engineers to Assess Damage to LRT Tunnel at Rideau after Giant Sinkhole

Tunnel may be flooded and damage could cause up to a month delay on light rail work

All eyes have been fixated on the damage caused by the giant sinkhole that swallowed up a section of Rideau Street in downtown Ottawa, but about five storeys below it, the light rail tunnel that’s under construction may have been flooded, according to the consortium responsible for building the future Confederation Line.

.

Engineers for the Rideau Transit Group (RTG) are heading down into the tunnel Friday to assess the damage for the first time since workers were told to drop their tools and leave the site in the minutes after the street above the tunnel fell away, creating a sinkhole five metres deep.

.

Peter Lauch, RTG’s technical manager, said there’s water in the tunnel but the extent of the damage is not known.

.

“Our engineers haven’t had a chance to get in there and assess if it’s a puncture or if it’s a fissure or if it’s a small hole or a large hole; they’ve not been able to determine that yet,” Lauch said.

.

Also to be determined is the cause of the sinkhole.

.

RTG could be liable for costs

.

If work done for the LRT project ultimately caused the sinkhole, then RTG is liable to pay for the damage because of the nature of its public-private partnership (or P3) agreement with the city.

.

Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson said Thursday that this time it may take months to determine what caused the sinkhole.

.

“It took us about a month to do the Waller Street [sinkhole investigation] and this one is obviously substantially bigger,” he said.

.

LRT tunneling almost complete

.

RTG had been digging the 2.5-kilometre light rail tunnel from two ends, with both machines simultaneously moving toward each other.

.

When the sinkhole opened up the tunnel was almost complete, with the two ends now just 50 metres apart.

.

The westbound tunnel had made it to the future Rideau Station, which is also under construction but was not damaged by the sinkhole, according to Lauch.

The Paris mayor is promising to clear all city streets of garbage by the end of the day after 12 days of strikes that have left a stinky mess  and further clouded France’s image as it hosts the European Championship soccer tournament.

.

Unions remain determined to keep up strikes at the main Paris waste incineration plant, on commuter trains taking fans to the opening match Friday, and on Air France flights starting Saturday. The strikes are part of nationwide labor action for months aimed at forcing the government to scrap a bill extending the work week and making layoffs easier.

.

.

Baptiste Talbot of the CGT garbage collectors union said Hidalgo’s prognosis was “a bit optimistic,” but didn’t object to the move. “We want to maintain pressure with the strike, but we are sensitive to sanitary issues,” he told The Associated Press.

.

.

France’s transport chief, meanwhile, is threatening to force striking train drivers back to work to ensure transport for fans attending the soccer tournament.

.

Alain Vidalies, junior minister for transport, insisted that enough trains to the opening match would be ensured. Railway and Metro authorities promised extra trains to bypass the strikers and carry 70,000 people to the stadium to watch France against Romania at the Stade de France at 9 p.m. on Friday night.

Making your JavaScript Pure

By Jack Franklin.

“JavaScript code can easily grow into a thicket of dependencies that
harbors wily and persistent bugs. Keeping the rows neat with functions
that don’t reach outside their scope makes your codebase more reliable
and easier to document. Jack Franklin suggests looking for
opportunities to use pure functions-it could make maintaining the code
a stroll in the park for your future self.”

be used both for column headers or row headers. aria-sort (property)
has two possible values “ascending” and “descending”…”

In Plain Sight: Text, Contrast, and Accessibility

By Ryan Frederick.

“Contrast is one of the basic elements of graphic design. It lets us
tell things apart. Yet in UI design, at least for the web, there is a
perpetual temptation to skimp. Things tend towards gray-on-gray.”

Why Users Abandon Forms with Select Menus

By UX Movement.

“Form abandonment is like someone agreeing to meet up with you but
then canceling last minute. Users who are interested in what a site
offers have no trouble starting a form. But when it comes to
completing it, they’ll have many reasons not to.”

STATISTICS:

Databases, Sources and Database

Search Results for Statistical Data Compilations and Publications

Finding and using statistical sources is a challenge for most students and many researchers. Finding government statistical sources are even more of a befuddlement. Requests for govenment information, let alone statistics, have dwindled in recent years in live reference situations. Providing a tool that shows, agency by agency, where government statistics hide in a group of links to database search results contributes to statistical literacy and to information literacy for government statistical sources and to the uses for government statistics.

Even though the actual publications found in these searches are not free, all of the databases used are. Over fifty government agencies of the United States federal government are now included and this is a work in progress as is the entire statistics resource guide. United States government agencies do provide statistical data for other countries.

http://guides.temple.edu/statistics-sources

http://guides.temple.edu/statistics-sources/gov-stats

The results of the just under 20 search result links for each of the agencies represented are for specific types of content and include my
Google Domain Limited Web searches as part of the group.

Google Domain Limited Web Searches

http://tinyurl.com/jgmmwpl

Many teachers tell students not to use Google for serious research as I religiously did until October 2014 when I saw one web address on the MedLib-L discussion group.  I have no idea what the post was about, I just noticed one web address and as the lesson evolved, I started joining the students rather than trying to change them in regards to using Google Web Search as part of my database searching research tool.

On another day at the reference desk, somebody wanted to know how to get recent decades of Philadelphia Census Tracts and their data online. Government data questions, being quite rare, I had a bit of a mind freeze. I could have gone to the online catalog and searched in key word search philadelphia and census tracts and found a link to a web source.  But I recovered quickly and remembered my new government agency finding tool for data.

I went to the content section for the Census Bureau

http://tinyurl.com/p7to6qk

I used edit/find to get to the outsourced census section (a Groups.IO post) link on the government agency web page. The guide section for census.

I selected this link

Google Domain Limited Web Search (GOV) for Statistical Content

http://tinyurl.com/nvdhwf6

Which contains this search

(“census bureau” OR “bureau of the census” OR “bureau of census”) AND (“UNITED STATES” OR US OR “U.S.”) AND (statistics OR statistical OR data OR demography OR demographic OR demographics) AND SITE: GOV

Over 31,000,000 search results of which Google will not show more than 1,000 is useless for most information needs.

I modified this search for my information need, however, by adding the phrase [“philadelphia census tracts” AND] on the LEFT side of the search.

https://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=%22philadelphia+census+tracts%22+AND+
%28%22census+bureau%22+OR+%22bureau+of+the+census%22+OR+%22bureau+of+
