    Zelfrijdende auto’s kunnen onze maatschappij ingrijpend veranderen. Of dat gebeurt hangt af van hoeveel de auto daadwerkelijk zelf kan maar ook van wat de consument wil. Worden auto’s een tweede luxe huiskamer of blijft een bestuurder noodzakelijk? Ook de deeleconomie is van invloed. Als veel mensen zelfrijdende voertuigen en ritten gaan delen verandert dit het verkeer- en vervoersysteem radicaal. Dit zijn een aantal conclusies uit het rapport ‘Chauffeurs aan het stuur?- Zelfrijdende voertuig...

  4. My Most Memorable AAS Meeting, or How Stephen Hawking's Chauffeur and Chubby Wise's Fiddle Are Related to the Hubble Deep Field (At Least In My Mind and Experience!)

    Sometimes, in the most extraordinary conditions and times, strange things happen which remind us of just how small a world we really inhabit, and how so many varied things may suddenly be juxtaposed in our lives, and in the lives of others. My most memorable AAS meeting involves not only the meeting but events while getting there. It was January 1996, and we had just finished our observations and initial data reduction of the Hubble Deep Field, the members of the HDF working group doggedly coming in to the STScI by various means over the December holidays and the New Year, in the midst of several blizzards which even closed STScI for a number of days. Not surprisingly, work on the HDF AAS presentations was ongoing until the last minute, until people left snowy Baltimore for sunny San Antonio. My street was plowed for the first time in a week a few hours before my 6AM flight, so after digging out my car, with no time for sleep, between 3AM and 6AM on the morning I left, I soon discovered my own surprising connections between Stephen Hawking's chauffeur, Chubby Wise's fiddle, and the Hubble Deep Field. I'll elaborate in this paper if you're curious!

    With the development and popularization of internet technology, the sharing economy depending on internet platform has made great stride forward. The internet chauffeured car services, which is a typical case of sharing economy impacts the traditonal taxi industry and triggers a lot of regualtion puzzles. As to the new industry of 'internet +', regulators should not put it as internetization of traditonal industries, and regulate it according to traditional rules of the "all-or-nothing" regulation strategy. With the aim of encouraging maket innovation, regualtors should fulfill the reponsive regulation stratey stipulated in Adiministative Licence Law, probe into the deep reasons and value of regualtion and reduce administrative intervention.%随着互联网技术的发展和普及,依托互联网平台的共享经济得到长足发展.以互联网专车为代表的共享经济冲击着传统出租车行业,引发诸多规制难题.对于"互联网+"这一新兴业态,规制者不应简单地将之视为传统行业的互联网化,并依据全有全无的规制策略,以类比方式施加传统规则.为鼓励市场创新,规制者应践行《行政许可法》所规定的回应型规制策略,探讨规制的深层理据和价值,减少行政干预.

  19. Using travel socialization and underlying motivations to better understand motorcycle usage in Taiwan.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Chang, Hsin-Li; Lai, Chi-Yen

    2015-06-01

    This study introduces self-determination theory (SDT) to refine previous models of vehicle usage motivation. We add travel socialization theory regarding parental influence on vehicle usage to enhance previous structural models describing motorcycle usage behavior. Our newly developed model was empirically verified in a sample of 721 motorcycle users in Taiwan. In addition to instrumental, symbolic, and affective motivations, perceived parental attitudes (PPAs) towards motorcycle riding were found to have a significant effect on individuals' motorcycle use habits. Additionally, participants who perceived their parents to have more positive attitudes toward motorcycles were found to have more experience being chauffeured on motorcycles by their parents. Based on these results, we suggest means to confront the challenges brought on by the rapid growth of motorcycle usage, especially serious motorcycle traffic accidents. These results improve our understanding motorcycle usage in Taiwan and can be used by transportation professionals who are seeking solutions to the rapid growth of motorcycle usage. PMID:25846101

    Africans American youth experience disproportionately high rates of exposure to community violence. Such exposures are associated with a myriad of physical and mental health challenges. However, few qualitative studies have examined the ways in which parental figures have attempted to manage youth exposure to violence. This study recruited 4 focus groups composed of the parents of African American youth (n = 54). Participants reported that (a) there were no safe places immune from community violence, (b) there were no populations or subgroups protected from community violence, and (c) strategies to manage exposure to violence were often defined by the gender of the child. Although common protective parental strategies included mixed benefits, they ranged from "sheltering" (keeping children off the streets), "chauffeuring" (transporting or accompanying children to and from places), "removal" (enrolling children in schools outside of the neighborhood), and attempting "to rebuild the village." However, several of these strategies had constraints including money, time, and child maturation. Based on these findings, we offer research, policy, and practice implications in response to community violence exposure among this population. PMID:27075420

    Full Text Available La consommation excessive d’alcool éthylique est connue depuis longtemps comme très dangereuse pour la santé humaine. De plus, l’alcool au volant représente, après la vitesse excessive, la deuxième cause d’accidents mortels sur la route. Quoique autorisé au volant à faibles doses dans certains pays, l’alcool met toujours en danger la vie du chauffeur et de ses passagers. Le taux d’alcool dans le sang, pour la même quantité d’éthanol consommée, varie en fonction de différents facteurs physiologiques. Il existe à l’heure actuelle de nombreuses modalités d’estimer l’évolution de l’alcoolémie au cours du temps. Nous avons essayé de démontrer que cette évolution présente une forte variabilité, en fonction du sexe, de l’age et de la physiologie individuelle

    David Phillips was a post-doctoral fellow on a Fulbright Scholarship at the University of Texas, Austin, where he acted as host and chauffeur to one of the IUPAC representatives, the Soviet delegate, Professor Nikolai N. Kondratiev, then Deputy Director of the Institute of Chemical Physics in Moscow. During the course of ferrying him around, Nikolai asked .David about his plans after his two-year stay in Texas, David replied that he had intended to return to Europe, but was looking for one more year as a post-doctoral fellow before seeking an academic position probably back in the UK Nikolai invited him to spend time in his Institute, and eventually, through the Royal Society/Academy of Sciences Exchange programme, this came to pass. Professor Phillips now describes his experiences, both cultural and scientific, in Russia during 1966-67 where he learned much about the Russian people, and also about himself. He returned with a taste for good music, Russian literature and language, and travel generally, and for taking chances in life. PMID:25549410

    Full Text Available Objective To explore the relationship between the psychological bearing capacity and trait coping style of military chauffeurs, and explore their influencing factors. Methods By random cluster sampling, a total of 390 military drivers (experimental group and 396 military non-drivers (control group were chosen as subjects, and they were investigated with the Military Personnel Resilience Scale (MPRS and Trait Coping Styles Questionnaire (TCSQ. The relationship between the psychological bearing capacity and trait coping style, and the influencing factors were analyzed. Descriptive statistics, independent sample t-test, correlation analysis and multiple stepwise regression analysis were performed by SPSS 17.0 software. Results  Compared to the control group, the scores of problem-solving, will power, self-confidence and the total score of MPRS were higher in experimental group (P<0.01 or 0.05. Correlation analysis suggested all the factors of MPRS in the drivers were positively correlated with positive coping style (P<0.01 or 0.05 and negatively correlated with negative coping style (P<0.01; the will power was positively correlated with educational level (P<0.05. Multiple stepwise regression analysis indicated that both the positive and negative coping style were incorporated into the regression equation with problem-solving, will power, interpersonal relationship, self-confidence and total score of MPRS as the dependent variables (P<0.01; negative coping style was incorporated into the regressive equation with family support as the dependent variables (P<0.01 and educational level was incorporated into the regressive equation with will power as the dependent variables (P<0.01. Conclusions The military drivers show a stronger psychological bearing capacity, and the major factor is trait coping style. In addition, educational level may affect the will power, so it may be regarded as a reference on psychological intervention to improve the

  4. The profitable art of service recovery.

    In services, mistakes are a fact of life. No matter how hard companies try, they can't prevent the occasional late flight or missed delivery. But they can learn to recover from them. Consider how Club Med-Cancun turned a service nightmare into a memorable experience. When a flight to Cancun left New York six hours late, made two unexpected stops, ran out of food, and had a rough landing, the vacationers on board were certain their holiday was ruined. But the Club Med manager greeted the travelers with food and music and chauffeured them back to the resort. In the end, the vacationers had a better time than if the flight had gone like clockwork. Service recovery starts with identifying the problem. The Bank of Maine in Portland pays customers $1 for writing a letter about the service they received. American Express uses an "800" number to solicit customer complaints. Once they've identified a problem, service companies must act fast. When Smith & Hawken realized that it was taking months to resolve customers' problems by mail, the company decided to use the phone instead. Most important, service companies should encourage frontline employees to deviate from the rules when necessary. Some companies use role playing to help employees develop the creative thinking needed to deal with unusual situations. Sonesta Hotels uses a game in which teams win points for coming up with good solutions to realistic problems. Also, employees must have the authority and responsibility to act on their beliefs-to make phone calls, credit accounts, or send flowers.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:10106796

  5. What's "quickest and easiest?": parental decision making about school trip mode

    2010-08-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The potential benefits of active school travel (AST are widely recognized, yet there is consistent evidence of a systematic decline in the use of active modes of transportation to school since the middle part of the 20th century. This study explored parental accounts of the school travel mode choice decision-making process. Methods Thirty-seven parents of children (17 who walked; 20 who were driven from four elementary schools in Toronto, Canada participated in semi-structured interviews. The schools varied with respect to walkability of the built environment and socio-economic status. Thematic analysis of interview transcripts identified a two-stage decision-making process. Results An initial decision concerned the issue of escorting or chauffeuring a child to/from school. This decision appeared to be primarily influenced by concerns about traffic, the child's personal safety, and the child's maturity and cognitive ability regarding navigating his/her way to/from school safely. Following the escort decision, parents considered mode choice, typically selecting what they perceived to be the easiest and most convenient way to travel. The ascription of convenience to the various modes of transportation was influenced by perceptions of travel time and/or distance to/from school. Convenience became a particularly salient theme for parents who found it necessary to complete multi-activity trip chains. Conclusions The school travel mode choice decision process is complex. Future research and practice should continue to address safety concerns that are typically the focus of active school transport initiatives while addressing more explicitly the behavioural cost of competing mode choices.

    component is in de kosten van het vrachtvervoer. De opties hebben doorgaans een terugverdientijd van circa drie jaar. Een terugverdientijd van ten hoogste drie jaar is echter juist nodig om opties zonder aanvullend beleid geiemplementeerd te krijgen in het vrachtverkeer op de weg. Daardoor is de bedrijfseconomische prikkel om veel van deze opties toe te passen, gering. Aan de hand van verzamelde informatie wordt het besparingspotentieel voor de binnenvaart indicatief geschat op 2% voor 2010 en 15% voor 2020. Voor het wegvrachtverkeer lijkt voor 2015 een besparing van ca. 5 tot 10% haalbaar. Tegen 2015 kunnen de meeste opties voor vrachtwagens al benut zijn. Door de korte levensduur van vrachtwagens zullen de meeste nu rijdende vrachtwagens al vervangen kunnen zijn. Het technische reductiepotentieel in 2030 komt in dit rapport uit op circa 20% voor de binnenvaart en circa 15% voor het wegvrachtverkeer. Er zijn verschillende drempels die de implementatie van CO2-emissiereductieopties kunnen vertragen. Allereerst is er de terugverdientijd van de investeringskosten. Als er bij een bedrijf beperkt inzicht is in de brandstofefficientie, is de terugverdientijd bovendien moeilijk in te schatten. Daarnaast zijn er persoonlijke voorkeuren van chauffeurs, bijvoorbeeld ten aanzien van rij-stijl of uitvoering. Tenslotte is er de industriele structuur, waardoor fabrikanten van zuinige voertuigcomponenten hun producten moeilijker in de praktijk kunnen demonstreren; en de moeilijkheid voor fabrikanten van zuinige technologieen om hun onderzoeksinvestering terug te kunnen verdienen.

    Full Text Available During the brief interregnum of a recent medical conference, we sat by the side of a pool. It was dusk. And just before the entertainments for the evening were to begin with cocktails and dinner, we were chatting about conferences and sponsorship.The arrangements were, to say the least, lavish. And docs from all over were visibly wallowing in five star luxuries. Strolling the lawns, sipping drinks, moving in and out of chauffeur driven cars, being treated like some feudal lords of yester years. Gratis . The joy of meeting friends, and networking with colleagues for positions and honours, was palpable. And that all this was complementary added to the fun. Although it was taken for granted. And accepted as part of conference commitment of sponsors, who made their bucks due to docs' prescriptions anyway.I had lately been studying the working of pharma sponsors. Talking to some of them too. Well, I found they had their priorities perfect. No option but to pamper docs, they said. But see to it that prescriptions poured in. The greater the pampering, the greater the doc's commitment expected. If it did not work out that way, discreet reminders. Later, more insistent ones. Finally, stoppage of sponsorship. Never talk about the idiosyncrasies and demands of one doc to another, howsoever idiotic they may be. (I meant the demands, but applying it to the docs may not really be invalid. And never forgot that all activities were with only one motive in mind: translating into profits for the company.What did we talk at the poolside? I expressed my concern to my fellow docs. Where did all this money come from? The sponsors put in millions for delegates. Plus ads. Plus now litigation costs as patients and activists had become belligerent. And the litigation costs were sky rocketing, as drugs reported serious side effects. Plus the brakes on price escalation of drug by legislators and activists. Was it not time to rein in the expenses? For docs to expect less
