Kolkata: Visitors of Space Theatre at Science City will soon have a unique viewing experience in terms of content and technical quality with the switch from 2D analogue to 3D digital. The theatre which remained shut since March 1, 2017, due to renovation, will be unveiled with a new avatar by the middle of January 2019.”The time has come to switch to digital with the advancement in technology. We had been running the content in analogue format for 20 years. There will be six projectors in place of the old standalone projection system — the sound quality will be world class. The pioneering German manufacturer of optical systems Carl Zeiss is implementing the entire project,” said Subhabrata Chaudhri, director of Science City. The total project cost is around Rs 20 crore.

The 23m tilted dome is being designed and installed by Astro-Tec Manufacturing of the US. “Back in July 1997, when the dome was inaugurated for the first time, it was in seismic zone II compliant but now it has been made seismic zone IV compliant,” a senior official said. The air conditioning system and the sitting arrangement will also witness a change in the new dome though there will be no change in the capacity. There will be a total of 360 seats with more leg space and better reclining ability.

The latest digital content will be screened in ultrahigh definition and also in 3D, giving viewers the feel of ‘being there’,” a official said. Space Theatre at Science City is India’s first and the first film that was screened was Serengeti, which documents the journey of more than two million wild beasts, zebras and antelopes over 500 miles across the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Science City, which operates under the National Council of Science Museums, had sent its proposal for an upgrade to the Union ministry of Culture in September 2015. The approval came in March 2016.

Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global August 3, 2017 Are you having trouble hiring employees? Well, it’s probably your fault.In today’s world, with the help of technology, it’s become easier than ever to get business done through email or over the internet. While technology has helped make processes more efficient, depending on it too much can have its downsides. Especially when it comes to the hiring process.Related: The 3 Most Common — and Costly — Hiring MistakesA recent report by global staffing and HR services provider Randstad U.S. surveyed 1,200 people 18 and older to uncover the perceptions, attitudes and expectations that job seekers have on the job search process. And while most agree technology is helpful during the process, many are frustrated when too much tech is involved.From shaking someone’s hand to actually reading through a candidate’s cover letter and resume — many employers are bypassing important aspects of the hiring process, much to applicants’ chagrin. Eighty-two percent of survey participants said they are frustrated with an overly automated job search experience, and 87 percent of respondents said that technology has made the job search more impersonal.Related: 3 Prudent Hiring Practices to Acquire the Best TalentHowever, that doesn’t mean technology should get the boot from your hiring process. To give candidates the most ideal experience, strike a balance between tech and a human touch. Nearly every survey participant agreed that technology should be used as an “aid” in the hiring process, not replace it.In the study, respondents identified “the degree of personal, human interaction during the process” and “the recruiter/hiring manager I worked with” as the top two aspects that contributed to a positive experience during their last job search. To the contrary, the top two reasons companies leave negative impressions on job seekers are “the length of the hiring process” and “the communication level throughout the selection process.”“The findings reinforce what we’ve believed for quite some time, that successful talent acquisition lies at the intersection between technology and human touch,” said Randstad U.S. CEO Linda Galipeau. “If done correctly, the right combination of personal interaction with the power of today’s intelligent machines can create an experience that is inherently more human.”Related: Hiring Your First Employee? 5 Things You Need to Know.As an employer, it’s important to not burn bridges or miss opportunities because many of these applicants won’t give you another shot. One-third of candidates who had negative experiences during the job search process will never re-apply to that organization, and will never refer a friend or family member to the company.

19Jan Rep. Webber applauds work of House mental health task force Tags: CARES Task Force, Mental Health Categories: Webber News Legislator looks forward to change that will result from the projectState Rep. Michael Webber said today he looks forward to the many legislative changes that will come as a result of the House’s mental health task force report, which was unveiled this week and included recommendations to make significant improvements to Michigan’s broken mental health system.The bipartisan task force spent five months taking part in public meetings and site visits across Michigan, reviewing areas where vulnerable residents are lacking in care and resources and collecting feedback to learn how best to deliver meaningful solutions. In particular, the panel focused on five key elements: Community, Access, Resources, Education and Safety (C.A.R.E.S.).“I’m most excited about the fact that the report resulted from the stories of real people impacted by mental health care in our state,” said Webber, of Rochester Hills. “The needs of our mental health community are so important and I’m thrilled to know that vital changes are on the horizon.”According to task force members, the House C.A.R.E.S report will not only serve as a blueprint for policy changes and legislation to be introduced in the next several months, but also establish a framework to further enhance mental health services in the future.Some of the proposed solutions in the report include:Eliminating barriers to increase access to mental health care;Creating a statewide crisis hotline to connect people in need with local services;Establishing incentives to encourage hospitals to create and expand psychiatric wards and help drive professionals to work in underserved areas;Improving training for first responders;Providing additional treatment to convicts with mental health challenges during and after incarceration.The full report is available to review at www.house.mi.gov/CARES.###
