first_imgWhen a major storm is announced, retailers know that the first thing many people do is head to the store to stock up on the essentials: bread, milk, water, toilet paper. Typically, given only two to three days’ notice, retailers must ensure their shelves are stocked to meet the preparedness needs of the community, while also ensuring they are able to reopen quickly.Food Lion, for one, aims to reopen its doors within 24 hours of a storm impact. Retail Business Services is the services company for six major East Coast grocery brands in the United States, including Food Lion. Tina Sellers, former director of asset protection for Retail Business Services, knows the only way to achieve this 24-hour goal is with clear weather intelligence and a proactive emergency plan. “Prior to a storm’s impact, our company has made plans for recovery—including which stores may need generators and which associates in the areas surrounding the impact zones can be called upon to help reopen stores,” said Sellers. “As soon as the storm has passed, we are working to route trucks to stores to stock fresh supplies.”How to roll out your plan when weather rolls inThe surest path to recovery is to have an emergency plan in place well before a storm is announced. The plan should include drills that run through multiple emergency scenarios so your business and employees are prepared for what happens before, during and after a natural disaster, including outages or stoppages. Being prepared ensures employees have the chance to batten down the hatches while they and customers get to safety.- Sponsor – Most importantly, making sure your business has an early warning system can save not only your business, but the lives of your employees.As we all know, these types of events can be financially draining. Even a thirty-minute outage can cost a business $20,000. If you haven’t prepared for the possibility of an emergency causing your business to shut down, you’ll lose money, recovery will be difficult, and you might be forced to permanently close.No matter what protocol you put in place to deal with a weather-related outage, make the following considerations to construct the most well-rounded plan possible:1. Know what’s coming.It’s vital to have an updated, accurate understanding of what the season has in store. Meteorologists consider several global and regional factors when determining the outlook for the Atlantic hurricane season. StormGeo, a global provider of weather intelligence and decision support solutions, provides this forecast for 2019:Based on ocean water temperatures (which are impacted by the current El Niño in the Tropical Pacific and cold cycle in the Atlantic), wind shear, and analog years (a year in the past with similar oceanic and atmospheric characteristics leading up to the start of hurricane season), StormGeo meteorologists predict 11-13 named storms in 2019. Of those, 4-5 may reach hurricane intensity, with 1-2 of the hurricanes becoming intense (Category 3-4-5). There is a decreased risk of significant hurricane activity across the islands of the eastern Caribbean; however, the risk to the area from southeast Louisiana to Cape Cod may be close to normal or slightly above normal.2. Think immediate and long-term.Let’s say a storm knocks a tree onto a power line near your business, causing an outage. This will require an immediate short-term action, but may also require a disaster response plan that accounts for a longer outage.For short-term emergencies, have supplies on hand, especially emergency lights, a radio and/or TV, flashlights with extra batteries, a first-aid kit, water and snacks. Floods can make travel impossible, forcing customers and employees to stay inside a business for days.Stockpiling emergency supplies isn’t difficult; however, the forethought required to get it done is what separates the good plans from the bad ones.In case of a more significant weather disaster, such as a tornado, flood or hurricane, a long-term strategy is needed. Relocation might be necessary. All entrances and windows should be secured. Protect, back up, or remove important internal documents or items. If necessary, enlist 24-hour security to protect assets that can’t be moved. Before returning to the facility and entering, make sure a team surveys the damage and declares it safe.Put a plan in writing, practice it, and review it to give employees a sense of security. You can also use commercial weather services to inject “real” weather into the session to simulate realistic conditions and timelines.When Hurricane Katrina infamously hit southern portions of the United States, Mike Lamb, The Home Depot’s senior director of loss prevention at the time, supplied teams with hurricane kits and instructions on how to carry out a full-fledged disaster plan while keeping a small crew on 24-hour standby to help with storm support. The move proved pivotal, as all but two of The Home Depot’s stores in Katrina’s path reopened within a week of the storm.3. Know your surroundings.Because the main objective is to avoid interruptions to your business, it’s important to realize that even faraway storms can affect your operations by interjecting themselves into your supply chain. Vendors, suppliers, distributors, contractors, manufacturers and transportation firms all rely on readily available power, and if any part of that chain is cut short by an outage, it can ultimately affect your business.Outline how outages in surrounding grids will affect your business and how weather events elsewhere might affect your supply chain. It’s not unreasonable to have a conversation with your vendors to learn about their emergency plans and their ability to support you when they are in crisis.4. Look at alternate forms of communication.Nothing dashes hope like being cut off from the world, and having working cellphone service during a crisis is far from a sure thing. Landline phones, VoIP, two-way radios, and even social media should all be part of your emergency plan.Employees should know that in disaster zones, text messages stand a higher rate of success than voice calls. They should also have emergency apps on their phones to locate family members or to notify authorities. If the primary form of communication falters, your people should know the alternatives and how to use them.5. Know that you can do something about the weather.While a National Weather Service forecast can tell you to expect bad weather over the weekend, it can’t say exactly how your specific location will be affected. You need to know the likelihood that you’ll experience an outage or at what specific hours or days your area will most likely be hit the hardest.Having your own meteorological experts just a phone call away can be a crucial part of any disaster response plan. For some smaller companies, the cost may seem prohibitive, but it’s important to remember that by avoiding even a single weather-related shut-down, the cost of a professional weather service can be well worth it.If you want your employees and customers to be safe and your business to reopen as quickly as possible following a disaster, having a strong disaster plan isn’t just an option—it’s a vital step to take when owning a business. Whether it’s a storm or another type of major disaster, with a solid and well thought-out plan, you can safeguard your business and the lives of your employees and get back up and running posthaste. Get ahead of the storm with a strong disaster response plan, and you will recover more quickly and with confidence when disaster hits.

first_imgIndian girls weathered a Japanese onslaught in the last quarter and a half before hanging on to the 13th-minute goal by Rani Rampal to grab fifth place at the Fintro Hockey World League match on Saturday. In the coming weeks, the win should officially translate into an entry into next year’s Rio Olympics.Japan (No. 10) was ranked three places above India, who had beaten them for the bronze medal at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games. While only the top-3 from the two HWL Semi-Final and five continental champions make the Olympics, places will fall vacant as some of the qualified teams are also likely to win Continental championships. Korea has won the Asian Games; and either Australia or New Zealand (third and fourth here) should win Oceania while Argentina and the United States (fourth and fifth at the Valencia HWL) will be favourites at the Panam Games. Netherlands, who will qualify from Antwerp, Great Britain and Germany, who also qualified from Valencia, will be favourites for the European championships.Saturday’s match could broadly be divided into two halves, the first dominated by India and the second by Japan.India began sharply and won an early penalty corner, which was wasted. But coach Mathias Ahrens’s team took the lead in the 13th minute after Lilima Minz took the ball from inside the Indian half and passed to Vandana Katariya, who ended her fine run with a reverse shot.The attempt was saved by Japanese goalkeeper Sakiyo Asano, but an unmarked Rani Rampal put the ‘near half-volley’ over the custodian’s reach.advertisementFive minutes into the second half, a loose clearance at the 25-yard line put Japan in possession and a long ball into the circle came to Akane Shibata, whose two shots were saved by goalkeeper Savita. But off the second save, the ball bounced and led to a penalty corner, which was wasted.Indians did go on a couple of attacks but no clear shot was taken.The third quarter was dominated by Japan, who launched dangerous attacks and got penalty corners but just couldn’t get the ball into the goal.A 38th-minute penalty corner was saved on the goalmouth by Monika, and Savita took a shot on the body. All the action was within the Indian 25-yard line, but Savita and the defenders held out.In the final quarter, Monika suffered cramps and was replaced by Deep Grace Ekka. Vandana Katariya was also injured and had to leave with three minutes left.Japan kept up the pressure as a defensive India allowed them to dominate. In the last seven minutes, the Japanese girls virtually camped in the Indian circle, but could not find the equaliser despite five penalty corners.last_img read more

first_imgThe International Cricket Council has announced a six-month suspension of Maharashtra Cricket Association’s pitch curator Pandurang Salgaonkar following its investigations over alleged charges of corruption dating back to October 2017.Salgaonkar was caught on India Today’s camera agreeing to manipulate some bounce, some movement and some balance between bat and ball for the second ODI between India and New Zealand at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) stadium. Following the sting operation, he was barred from entering the ground.WATCHIndia Today, at that point, also been able to confirm that preliminary action will be taken against Salgaoncar, who was a first-class cricketer.After the sting operation, the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU) had taken cognizance of India Today’s sting operation on the then Pune pitch curator.”We have carried out an extensive investigation based on the allegations made by India Today and the material they shared with us,” Alex Marshall, the ICC’s general manager, anti-corruption, said in a statement.”I am satisfied that Mr. Salgaonkar has no case to answer on the broad allegations of corruption made by India Today.””However, as he is bound by the ICC Anti-Corruption Code as a participant of the sport, he has been charged with breaching section 2.4.4 of the Code for his failure to report an approach to engage in corrupt conduct. Mr Salgaonkar has accepted that he has committed the offence and has received a six-month suspension.”The expose was made public hours before the second ODI between India and New Zealand which was played in Pune.advertisementBhuvneshwar Kumar (3/45) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/38)restricted New Zealand to 230/9 off their 50 overs.

The ICC officials had also met with the two undercover reporters who had carried out the covert operation.

first_imgAndorra 0 Portugal 2: Rested Ronaldo the saviour for Euro 2016 champions Jamie Smith Last updated 2 years ago 04:38 10/8/17 Cristiano Ronaldo Getty Images Portugal face a do-or-die concluding Group B clash with leaders Switzerland after Cristiano Ronaldo inspired them to a 2-0 win in Andorra. Cristiano Ronaldo came off the bench to keep Portugal’s hopes of automatic World Cup qualification alive, breaking the deadlock in a hard-fought 2-0 win away to Andorra in Group B.Ronaldo, one booking away from a suspension, was named among the substitutes on Saturday by coach Fernando Santos ahead of the crunch clash against Switzerland on Tuesday.But, after a goalless first half, Santos was forced to turn to his star man and risk Ronaldo getting a yellow card that would see him missing that crucial concluding fixture.

The Real Madrid superstar thrived on the pressure by scoring his 15th goal of the qualifying campaign to draw level with Poland’s prolific Robert Lewandowski 18 minutes after his introduction, poking in a Joao Mario cross from close range.Ricardo Quaresma and Bernardo Silva were wasteful but an Andorra equaliser was never likely and Andre Silva scrambled in a late second to guarantee the points for his side, while Ronaldo successfully avoided a booking.With Switzerland maintaining their perfect record by winning 5-2 at home to Hungary, Portugal – who have confirmed a play-off place at least – will have to beat the Group B leaders in Lisbon to snatch top spot.Record setters…15 goals in a single European qualifying campaign:@Cristiano Ronaldo Robert @lewy_officialpic.twitter.com/7c0mORyQK5— European Qualifiers (@EuroQualifiers) October 7, 2017Ronaldo scored twice in the first four minutes in the return game a year ago, but without their talisman the Euro 2016 winners toiled to break down Andorra’s stubborn resistance.Defenders Pepe and Luis Neto sent early efforts off target before Quaresma missed the first clear chance after 24 minutes.Nelson Semedo’s viciously inswinging right-wing cross flicked off Ildefonso Lima’s head and Quaresma, arriving at the back post, headed wide with the goal at his mercy.Quaresma almost rapidly made amends but Josep Gomes punched his cross-shot away with his first meaningful involvement, then Andre Silva lashed a volley over the crossbar after a defensive mix-up.Portugal finally made Gomes work after 39 minutes, the Andorra goalkeeper diving to his left to keep out a swerving Pepe strike, but the deadlock remained unbroken at the interval.Santos had seen enough and introduced Ronaldo, replacing the ineffective Gelson Martins, but a Bernardo Silva mishit from a fine position summed up Portugal’s wastefulness.But it was inevitably Ronaldo – who had scored 96 goals in his 100 competitive games since the start of 2016 for club and country – who made the difference for the visitors.SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIM #TudoPorPortugal #ANDPOR pic.twitter.com/EEW0ULpeiB— Portugal (@selecaoportugal) October 7, 2017An enticing Joao Mario cross reached Ronaldo at the back post via a deflection off Lima, ensuring he was onside despite Andorra’s protests, and he was never going to miss from six yards out.Ronaldo and Quaresma failed to make Portugal’s lead more comfortable, sending long-range efforts off target, while a Bernardo Silva strike after a goalmouth scramble deflected wide.The second goal eventually came with five minutes to go, Andre Silva bundling in from close range after a left-wing Ronaldo cross was headed into his path by Danilo Pereira, with a straight shoot-out with Switzerland for top spot in Group B now set for Tuesday. read morelast_img read more
