It's (generally) bloodless and unarmed, but the basics are all there.

Not really, it's more like politics (lots of talking, some shouting but nothing ever gets done). MBA's like to pretend that business is war because it makes them feel like important generals, not just the douchebag with a nice suite they really are.

Business is not war precisely because it lacks the destruction and death that acompanies war. Even cold wars claim 1000's of lives.

Would it really be such a bad thing to view them as such?

Do you really need to ask that question?

In the mid 20th century we had corporations who practically had armies, we called it Fascism. In the modern day, we call them Mafia's.

So then have them go through the training as well

Yeah right. Good luck with that. They'll never do it.

This kind of "training" is only for the workers. Managers are exempt.

You don't even have to look at undeveloped regions to see that "expensive generator" can be cheaper than "grid hookup + cheap generator".

I live in a fairly big American city. A state capital, even. Pretty far from a third-world country (or whatever Peru is - the term seems to be pretty vague, I'm probably using it wrong).

Just yesterday, one of the never-ending road crews installed some pedestrian crossing lights across a road I travel every day to get to work. And guess what? There's little solar panels to power them, because that's cheaper than digging up the road (for a third time) to get a grid hookup.

So if it can be too expensive to build the grid out another ten feet, I have zero problem imagining that building it out several miles in extremely mountainous terrain would be too expensive as well.

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Kebocoran gas kembali terjadi kali ini terjadi di area pengolahan tembaga PT Smelting Desa Roomo, Kecamatan manyar, Gresik, akibat dari kebocoran gas ini, warga yang tinggal di tiga kampong di sekitar pabrik pengolahan tembanga terpaksa mengungsi.

Seperti dikutip detiksurabaya salah satu warga roomo mengatakan kebocoran gas terjadi sekitar pukul 1.00, dampak dari kebocoran gas ini bagi kesehatan warga adalah lemas, pingsan sampai sesak nafas.

Budi Setyawan selaku Staf General Affair (GA) melakukan mediasi dengan warga Roomo, Minggu (7/7/2013). Budi menambahkan semua warga yang mengalami mual, sesak nafas dan pusing sudah dibawa ke RS Petrokimia Gresik. Pihaknya juga masih belum mengetahui pasti jumlah warga yang dilarikan ke rumah sakit.

Gas Monitoring system for Risk Control

Dari informasi diatas dibutuhkan peningkatan pemantauan terhadap gas, karna banyak resiko yang ditimbulkan oleh gas terutama gas berbahaya dan beracun. Ada tiga kategori utama gas berbahaya yaitu:

        Gas mudah terbakar berisiko bagi pekerja dan fasilitas kerja seperti kebakaran atau ledakan.
        Kandungan oksigen yang sedikit yang mengurangi pasokan oksigen pekerja yang berada pada ruangan sempit.
        Gas beracun yang menimbulkan dampak toksik pada manusia dalam jangka waktu yang panjang.

PT Testindo selaku perusahaan yang bergerak dibidang testing memiliki suatu monitoring system untuk mengidentifikasi kandungan gas berbahaya. Monitoring kondisi gas tersebut meliputi identifikasi bahaya pada lingkungan kerja, kemudian menganalisis bahaya yang ditimbulkan pada plant itu sendiri, pekerja, masyarakat sekitar dan lingkungan. Sehingga dengan menganalisis dampak yang ditimbulkan akan mengurangi resiko kebocoran gas beracun pada lingkungan kerja Anda sehingga dapat dilakukan tindakan untuk mengatasi kebocoran gas kecil sebelum terjadinya kebocoran gas yang terlalu besar.

Monitoring system yang testindo rancang dapat memiliki beberapa kelebihan sebagai berikut :

        Monitoring system kami memiliki data acquisition yang dapat menerima sensor untuk beberapa
        Dapat mengaplikasikan sensor dari berbagai merek
        Dapat melakukan pengukuran baik itu lingkungan kerja maupun proses
        Memberikan tampilan konstentrasi gas
        Mempunyai relay sebagai alarm
        Dapat melogger
        Dapat dimonitor secara terpusat
        Mengoperasikan mandiri bahkan ketika komunikasi dengan ruang kontrol terputus
        Menyediakan untuk rekonfigurasi sistem yang mudah melalui komputer di ruang kontrol"

That software cracks the password(s) by brute force. As I understand, there are not too many better attacks against AES. This means that a password like 9~}~w\1[X\3{F968|05|\St3\Ya7Lh~~ is not going to be cracked in this millennium. Besides, it would be entirely illegal to use such software in a business. Cracking of a password may take a second, or it may take a year. How would you integrate that into your mail processing chain?

PDF can be also encrypted with PKI, and with Adobe's own DRM. Those cannot be cracked, as far as I know. You either attack the symmetric cipher, which is usually AES256, or you find a new attack against RSA. If you can do either of those in reasonable time, you have better things to do - like becoming filthy rich and famous. (Or dead.)

This. The summary was sensationalized, probably to stoke just such a "discussion" as above. Which is too bad because the TFA provides plenty of fodder without embellisment.

While coping with stressful situations is a valuable skill to be teaching the workforce, I found it a bit ironic that one of the things the trainees were criticised for was not working to find the root causes of problems by cleaning up oil slicks instead of finding out how to prevent them, while apparently the management that sent these trainees into this program are content to teach their workers to deal with chaos instead of engineering it off the manufactoring floor.

Also as with any such program that may appeal with to the prejudices of management, this procedure should probably be evaluated against similar techniques in an objective and impartial fashion.

These are a single small panel, probably worth about $50, and a basic battery, designed to run a few lamps, a radio, charge some batteries, and the like. These people aren't going to be running a central heating plant, refrigerator, hot water heater, etc. We have a house in Paruro, near Cusco. A thousand dollars worth of panels would provide electricity for several square blocks in Paruro, which has been on the electrical grid three decades.
