Real Estate agent goes the extra mile in London taxi

Suffolk Coastal real estate agents with their London cab

UK Real Estate Agent Suffolk Coastal has come up with a novel way of transporting house-hunters around its listings on the market.

WOODBRIDGE, SUFFOLK, UNITED KINGDOM, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — UK Real Estate Agent Suffolk Coastal has come up with a novel way of transporting house-hunters around its listings on the market.

The company has purchased a traditional London Taxi, now painted white and branded with the firm’s logo and the registration plate SL55OLK, which it uses to collect viewers from nearby railway stations. It is then driven to the homes they wish to view, and back to the station again afterwards.

Managing Director Tim Day said: “Here at Suffolk Coastal, we want to go the extra mile for our buyers and sellers. Many of our prospective purchasers come from the capital – most of them arriving via Manningtree Railway Station, which is just 55 minutes from London’s Liverpool Street. Owning a former London taxi means that we can pick them up, show them around properties of interest and then return them the station once they have completed their viewings.

“The buyers genuinely seem to love the experience – and it also allows us to spend more time with them, so we can better understand what they are looking for, show them properties which are relevant to their needs, as well as being able to target future viewings more effectively. And if they need to send emails or work on their laptop during the journey, they can do so uninterrupted, while we chauffeur them around.”

The taxi – capable of taking five passengers at a time – is a traditional 2005 London cab, which is driven by MD Tim Day at weekends, and by his Head of Sales Harry Wass during the week. Suffolk born and bred, Harry has a degree in Real Estate Management, 12 years’ property experience behind him in London, and is the third generation in his family to establish a career in property in the county.

Managing Director Tim Day is an estate agent with over 20 years' experience of selling, letting and holiday-letting residential property across prime central London. Now living on the Suffolk coast, his London property connections enable him to sell coastal homes in the county to buyers from the capital.

He added: “As a pro-active local estate agent, we recognise that we have to go out of our way to do more for our clients during what is unquestionably a challenging market.

“The truth is that successful selling also involves providing buyers with a service which is innovative, inspired and informed. Our station-to-station taxi service is one way of doing precisely that.”

Market Outlook for Multi-access Edge Computing revealed in Latest Report

Multi Access Edge Computing

Mind Commerce sees Open, Flexible Architecture as Key to Realizing Full Market Potential

LTE Benefits from MEC, but Mobile Edge Computing is Essential to 5G”

— Mind Commerce

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wireless service providers are considering plans for how they will implement and operate distributed servers and mini-datacenters in support of Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), which represents a means of pushing computation and storage much closer to the point of usage. This brings many benefits for consumer and enterprise application usage including lower latency and greater overall network efficiency.

Mind Commerce sees a new and much more efficient service creation and operational environment developing as a result of MEC in which Over-the-Top (OTT) providers and legacy carriers alike will be more nimble in terms of implementation and optimization.

In addition, the deployment of MEC with 5G provides a very powerful combination based on some of the latter’s key attributes such as network slicing, which in conjunction with localized computing provides unparalleled opportunities for Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) optimization for both consumers and enterprise users.

This combination will benefit data-only apps as well as the Vo5G market (Voice over 5G). In addition, many industrial automation applications, such as the Cloud Robotics market, will be enabled by the combination of MEC and 5G.

Multi Access Edge Computing Market 2018 – 2023, evaluates the telecom and IT ecosystem in support of MEC including communications and computing infrastructure providers, managed services vendors, carriers and OTT providers. Our MEC analysis includes a focus on company strategies and offerings relative to current and anticipated future market needs. The report also provides quantitative analysis of the Mobile Edge Computing market including segmentation by industry vertical, region of the world, application and services. It also provides forecasts for MEC based streaming data and real-time data analytics.

Frank Lennix Explains How to Prepare for Unexpected Vacation Expenses

Frank Lennix

Financial consultant Frank Lennix gives advice on how to anticipate unexpected vacation expenses.

TULSA, OAKLAHOMA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Everyone enjoys going on vacation. It is a time to be carefree and fun. Vacation is the time where families can bond, create amazing memories, and grow closer. Regardless of whether it is a day trip, a week trip or longer, vacations are the much-needed break people deserve. However, along with the fun, there are also expenses.

Unfortunately, it is difficult to enjoy a vacation without spending a little bit of money. When people go on vacation, they expect that. Yet, what happens when that little bit of money turns in to more than expected? According to Frank Lennix, most vacationers have no idea how to prepare for unexpected vacation expenses. Thankfully, Lennix knows how important it is for families to have a stress-free vacation. Therefore, he his ready to explain the best ways to prepare for unexpected vacation expenses.

• Expect the Unexpected

Everyone should have a ‘rainy-day fund’. This is a set amount of money that is set aside in case of emergencies only. This amount should be added to when possible but only deducted if there is an actual emergency. That way, most worst-case scenarios will not snowball into recurring debt.

When planning a vacation, there should be a place in the budget for unexpected expenses. This money is not for emergencies, as strictly as the rainy-day fund should be. Nevertheless, a fund should be set up in case something does not go as planned. There are many reasons why this fund is essential. Additionally, if a person budgets for the expense, it is easier to manage.

• Over-Budget Everything

Giving the vacation a cushion on each of the budget items is another way to ensure there is enough money. Instead of pinching every penny when trying to figure out how much everything is going to cost, round up. Put an extra fifty to one-hundred dollars in each section of the budget, including the Unexpected fund. That way, if something does go awry, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you are okay.

• Being Financially Stable

A person does not need to be a millionaire to go on a vacation. Although, they do have to have some financial stability. Going on vacation is not going to make a financial situation any better. Therefore, if a person is struggling to get by, living paycheck to paycheck, they probably should not go on vacation. Instead, take some time off and have a staycation. This is where people and families enjoy the time off work in their own home. This saves on lodging and an irregular food budget.

Of course, everyone deserves to have a break but plan for a vacation in advance and save for it. By doing this, people will be able to enjoy their vacation, in addition to feeling like they worked toward it. This lowers stress and allows the person to immerse themselves in fun and festivities without having to worry.

To close, the experience of a vacation is something that no matter what happens, it will always be memorable. Fortunately, with these tips, Frank Lennix assures that people who follow this lead will be prepared for anything. Remember, adventure is everything on a vacation. It is an escape from everyday life. However, that adventure should not condemn vacationers to financial uncertainty when they return home.

New Microtel by Wyndham Opening in Loveland, Colorado

Microtel by Wyndham Loveland will offer guests a meeting area, an exercise facility and breakfast.

Wyndham brands have a top-ranked loyalty rewards system travelers can participate in when staying in hotels.”

— Tom Cave, Owner of Accurate tDC, LLC

LOVELAND, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Construction on the new 62-room Microtel by Wyndham in Loveland is scheduled to officially begin with a public groundbreaking ceremony on Oct. 22 at 11 a.m. (MDT) at 3996 Peralta Drive in Loveland, Colorado. The hotel is scheduled to open its doors to guests in May 2019.

Owned by White Water Hospitality, LLC, the new Microtel hotel is a franchised brand under Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company, with nearly 9,000 hotels across more than 80 countries on six continents.

Tom Cave, owner of Accurate TDC, LLC and the developer for Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Loveland, shared the hotel’s prime location near the Budweiser Events Center and the Northern Colorado Regional Airport is expected to attract a year-round stream of guests passing through the area.

“The (economy) in and around Loveland is growing very strongly, so there’s going to be a lot of business people coming from in and around the area occupying the rooms,” Cave said. “There will be a consistently steady flow of people, including peak occupancy in summer, but even a steady flow of business following that, according to the extensive feasibility study that was prepared by Abby Spurrier of Spurrier Consulting.”

Microtel by Wyndham Loveland will offer guests a meeting area, an exercise facility and breakfast, and is projected to average around $100 per night. Out of the approximately 20 or more hotels in the area, the average cost of a room ranges from about $60 to about $150 per night.

“We’ve been working on this hotel for about a year and a half to get to the point of groundbreaking,” Cave said. “Our in-depth process included site selection, a feasibility study, and submitting architectural and structural plans to the City of Loveland for their approval. Following that, the contractor could start with the foundation, site work and actual building.”

Microtel is considered an upper economy brand in the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts family, and is the only all-new construction brand among economy hotels. The ‘Generation Five’ Microtel is the “latest and greatest” model of the hotel.

“Wyndham brands have a top-ranked loyalty rewards system travelers can participate in when staying in hotels,” Cave said.

Consistently named a best travel rewards program by U.S. News and World Report, Wyndham Rewards® is the world’s most generous loyalty program offering members a simple earning structure of a guaranteed 1,000 points for every qualified stay, along with a flat, free night redemption rate of just 15,000 points per room per night—the first of its kind for a major rewards program.

The owner of the new Microtel by Wyndham Loveland, Gurvinder Singh of White Water Hospitality, LLC, is a first-time hotel owner. He is currently in business with a convenience store and gas station in Greeley, Colorado, but wanted to expand his business into the hotel industry.

Bedrock Construction Group, a company based in Orlando, Florida, is leading the building of the hotel. Channel Point Hospitality, the management company, will work closely with the developer during the construction process to ensure a successful opening in May 2019, and take over the day-to-day hotel operations once it is built. Point West Community Bank financed the hotel.

The new Microtel is expected to create 15 to 20 permanent jobs once staffing begins.

U-Are Technologies: How AI and AR Will Revolutionize Education

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Education establishment needs a change, and we are about to embark upon such a change. And here at U-Are Technologies, we firmly believe that AI and AR will revolutionise our learning habits, helping transform the classroom learning experience.

Recently, education has become a bit of a hot topic among educators and policy reformers across the globe. There has been some changes made to the education system over the last decade or so, but not significant enough to get noticed. We remain within a classroom centric paradigm with learning focused on keeping students in the classroom with the hope that they will eventually harbinger a better future and contribution to society as a whole.

Moreover, the current education system remains focused on the collective with individual growth neglected. Also, our classroom environment revolves around sharing information and knowledge, and not its practical implementation.
The current classroom environment doesn’t work for everyone. The challenges remain as teachers need to create a framework where everyone fits in and not the other way around where individual growth is not at all prioritised. The current education system fails miserably when it comes to individual growth, socialisation, and connecting with others. Students do stay in a classroom, but they hardly interact with each other during learning. This leads to no flow of ideas and makes learning a stagnant process.

So, how do we solve these problems?

Applied Technologies to the Rescue: Implementing AR and AI Solutions
The growth of technology has seen its roots grow into education. The two important technologies that we at U-Are Technologies think will impact education in future are AR and AI.

It is on all of us to utilise these technologies to make learning more personal and help individuals improve their critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and overall ability to work on different problems and fields.

Immersive Education

To facilitate the next generation to get a proper education, we need to utilise immersive education using AI and AR. Computers have already started providing the playing field for the learners, whereas AR is now focusing on making it more immersive than ever. With virtual reality headsets readily available in the market, it is now possible for learners to transform their learning experience. Smartphones are providing the necessary tools to enable it. They are cheap and can be paired with cheap and durable virtual reality headsets such as Google Cardboards.

When it comes to the true AR experience, technology like Microsoft Hololens completely transforms how we visualise and learn. With AR devices, we can transform our learning experience and enhance creativity with the use of visuals. The images and the surroundings look real and can open a new perspective to the learners. For example, you can change your open room into a solar system where you can interact with planets.

Using AR can unlock the possibility to learn abstract concepts much faster. Visuals always interact with our brain in a special way. Students in a classroom will feel fascinated when they see, feel, and interact with the topics that they are learning. There are already AR education apps available in the market. Some of the notable ones are MyLab, a chemistry-related AR app, and Universe Sandbox, which let you explore the universe.

Machines and Learning

Artificial intelligence is transforming our world as we speak. It is already into sports, finance, self-driving cars, and so on. Its impact on education is yet to be seen. So, will it be able to transform education? The question can be answered by looking at the student-teacher relationship. AI is now capable of learning about us. Text-to-speech and voice recognition advancements also enable machines to interact with us. Examples include Cortana, Siri, Amazon Echo, and so on.

With all the necessary tools, only time will tell when AI will be able to replace or at least help teachers understand students and their requirements. It can become the perfect teacher that revolves around the learner's needs.
The capabilities of artificial intelligence are endless, and we have just started to explore its possibilities. Self-driving cars, for example, are a prime example of how artificial intelligence can be used to improve the world around us. With AI, we will be more connected, will be more inclined towards learning meaningful things, and will be able to customise our path accordingly.

Final Thoughts

Our education system is changing and we are arguably on the brink of a revolution in this field. Effectively applying emerging technologies can not only help us understand our learning habits but also transform the classroom learning experience using AI and AR.

If you are interested in learning more about how to apply these technologies to your training and education needs, then please do not hesitate to contact us at U-Are Technologies. We understand that one size does not fit all and can find a solution that meets every budget.

You can connect any device with a 3.5mm audio shack to PILO and play music without disturbing your sleeping partner. The accompanying smartphone App (available on AppStore and Google Play) presents users an unprecedented acoustic experience thanks to its selection of sleep-aid audio recordings. PILO will make falling asleep easier, and even has a built-in alarm system to wake you up in the right moment.
