Bill Cooper, Founder And CEO Of Spectronics Corp., Leaves Behind A Legacy of Innovation

first_imgEditor’s Note: The following memorial was written by Spectronics Corp. to note the passing of CEO and Founder Bill Cooper. No additional details were available as of press time.AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisementFounders see opportunity and act. They are the first on the field, taking risks and imagining the rewards. Founders change how the world operates. They possess characteristics to be admired and create legacies to be followed.With great regret, Spectronics Corp. this week announced the passing of its Founder and CEO, Bill Cooper. He leaves behind the sum of his insight and aspiration. Bill and his brother, Morris Cooper, founded Spectronics Corp. in 1955. The two brothers saw the promise of ultraviolet technology and its many applications – the breadth of which began with detecting fluid leaks inautomobiles.Over the years, Spectronics has developed many pioneering products and continues to be a world leader in dozens of markets, including non-destructive testing, biotechnology, forensics and leak detection. Hundreds of major OEMs across the globe rely on the Spectronics brand.For more than six decades, Spectronics Corp. has been an enterprising partner in the research and scientific fields. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded Spectronics the Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award for developing technology that reduces harmful emissions of ozone-damaging chemicals. The company supplied UV lamps that were used aboard the U.S. Space Shuttle to study the effects of zero-gravity on matter.AdvertisementSpectronics provided UV crosslinkers and transilluminators that were used for groundbreaking research to map human DNA as part of the Human Genome Project. And as of today, Spectronics’ fluorescent dyes have been used on more than 210 million cars to pinpoint fluid and air conditioning leaks.Bill Cooper, a true pioneer of his time, recognized that the people he recruited were critical to his vision. Because of this, it was Bill’s mission to foster a close, tight-knit environment at Spectronics, making sure that everyone who worked at his company supported and elevated one another. Even in his latter years, Bill was active on a daily basis at Spectronics’ Westbury headquarters, asking each employee how they were progressing in their work – and inquiring about what they were doing in their personal lives, always making himself available to them.Spectronics Corp. is moving firmly into the 21st century, embodying Bill Cooper’s entrepreneurial spirit and keen business acumen. The values Bill had demonstrated continue to live on at the company he created. The same pioneering innovation and market leadership advances into tomorrow. The people Bill guided will take the next steps, setting the company on a new path toward even greater success and global impact.last_img read more

Leader: Your weekly pick-me-up

first_imgWhisper it but there’s some economic optimism in the air. Flick through our news section on some weeks and you can be forgiven for being sick of all the negative stories. Anyone would think we were doom mongering.But of course, we’re just reporting what’s out there. As we went to press this week, Carillion’s collapse was being scrutinised by MPs in a course of events that have put thousands of jobs at risk, and there’s no getting away from that. Construction’s stagnation is very public too. It becomes tiring to hear negative quarterly output statistics making the headlines on News at Ten and billed as a handbrake on the UK’s economic growth compared with say, the manufacturing sector. And while we’re all sick of citing “Brexit uncertainty” as some kind of trading indicator, the one certainty is that our inevitable separation from the EU – and the ongoing political paralysis – feels bad. So why is the glass now looking vaguely half full again? Well, it’s not just because former PM David Cameron is saying that Brexit is not as bad as he thought it was going to be – “a mistake, not a disaster”. Deloitte’s latest London Office Crane survey is telling us as much.It becomes tiring to hear negative quarterly output statistics making the headlines on News at Ten and billed as a handbrake on the UK’s economic growth compared with say, the manufacturing sectorThe consultant reports record activity in regional city centres – and notably in the residential sector. The number of residential units under construction in Leeds, for example, is at its highest in a decade, reflecting renewed investor confidence. And Barratt alone will build over 2,000 homes in Scotland this year. But that’s not all. Architects are on the march too with levels of confidence for future work bouncing back. The RIBA’s monthly survey revealed sentiment rising following post-Brexit referendum blues and now only 13% of architects say they are under-employed. That’s surely an indication of hope. Housebuilders, meanwhile, are finally getting their act together to deliver in the biggest growth market of all. It’s never made sense, given the scale of demand in the housing sector, that construction’s overall output should be lagging. But led by smart entrepreneurs, what is now being coined as the “quick build” solution of modular homes is being adopted at scale. Modular builds offer a way to plug the housing gap. But only, of course, if they don’t look crapAccording to Lloyds Bank’s recent survey of 100 housebuilders nearly 70% of them are investing in modular systems with over half investing in off-site panelised systems. It’s a no brainer decision that comes with a return on better construction standards, ease of build, favourable planning considerations and, of course, higher margins. And with a third of housebuilders citing skills shortages in the very cities that Deloitte claims are now booming, then modular builds offer a way to plug that gap. But only, of course, if they don’t look crap.This remains the design challenge, preventing a generation of poorly designed, cheap looking blocks that are thrown together to satisfy demand and keep government ministers happy in meeting targets. But that’s one for another day. For now, design aside, from a commercial point of view, it’s difficult to fathom why a modular housing boom isn’t happening faster. Especially when the government has committed to building 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s with a £44bn investment.And if you’re still not convinced, you’ve only got to see where Tony Pidgley is putting his money – Berkeley Homes this week received planning permission for a modular homes factory in Ebbsfleet, Kent, capable of producing more than 1,000 homes each year. The potential is overwhelming and if you ever want to see where real innovation lies in the housing sector, this is it.Design aside, from a commercial point of view, it’s difficult to fathom why a modular housing boom isn’t happening fasterStill not convinced? Need your fix of gloom? Well, we’ve got plenty of coverage both in the magazine and online on the demise of Carillion and Lakesmere and the likely next corporate disaster.Or should you be looking to understand the intricacies of the decline in the commercial office sector in, say, Grimsby, we can do that too. But for a moment, if you can, step back from the cataclysmic events rocking the UK procurement chain and try to be positive.For every threat, there is an opportunity. And the opportunities, notably in the regions and off-site manufacturing, are growing day by day.last_img read more

Antisipasi Pelecehan Seksual, Pemerintah India Hadirkan Halte Khusus Wanita

first_imgSelain itu, instrumen lain seperti CCTV dan WiFi pun turut disematkan pada halte ini. Sementara halte khusus ini tidak bisa digunakan oleh kaum adam, otoritas terkait pun membangun halte khusus untuk laki-laki – jaraknya sekitar 20 meter dari halte khusus wanita dan hanya dilengkapi dengan tempat duduk saja.“Kami akan membangun fasilitas serupa yang lebih banyak lagi di berbagai penjuru kota,” ungkap salah satu sumber dari otoritas berwenang tersebut. Sebenarnya, halte khusus wanita ini merupakan ‘peremajaan’ dari yang sebelumnya pernah ada. “Jadi kami ganti yang lama dengan yang baru, yang lebih modern, dan lebih aman. Letaknya sama persis dengan halte yang sebelumnya,” imbuhnya.Menurut Mayor V K Prasanth, Walikota Thiruvananthapuram, ide pembangunan halte khusus wanita ini merupakan jawaban dari sejumlah keluhan yang bersumber dari media sosial. Banyak kaum hawa yang mengeluhkan soal minimnya fasilitas seperti ruang menyusui dan toilet khusus di pra-sarana transportasi. Padahal, lokasi tersebut bisa dibilang tidak pernah sepi setiap harinya.Hadirnya halte khusus ini tentu menuai respon positif dari banyak orang di media sosial dan semakin menjamur pula permintaan pembangunan halte serupa – seperti di Technopark Campus dan daerah sekitarnya.Baca Juga: Seorang Desainer Industri Rancang Halte Bus yang Dilengkapi Pengisian Daya EV Nirkabel!Tidak melulu dikaitkan dengan tindak pemerkosaan atau tindakan yang berhubungan dengan fisik seorang wanita, tapi memperhatikan seorang wanita yang tengah menyusui anaknya pun termasuk ke dalam golongan pelecehan terhadap wanita.Berbeda dengan Indonesia yang sudah menyediakan fasilitas khusus seperti ruang menyusui di sejumlah pra-sarana transportasi – sebut saja Stasiun Senayan MRT Jakarta yang kiranya bakal mulai beroperasi pada April 2019 mendatang. Sumber: manoramaonline.com Maraknya pelecehan yang marak terjadi pada wanita di sarana dan pra-sarana transportasi memaksa sejumlah operator memutar otak untuk mencari solusi terbaik dari masalah ini. Semisal Commuter Line Jabodetabek memiliki gerbong khusus wanita, maka berbeda dengan halte bus yang ada di India – tepatnya di Thiruvananthapuram. Selain dikhususkan untuk wanita, ternyata halte bus ini juga bisa dibilang cukup lengkap lho dari segi infrastrukturnya!Baca Juga: Operator Kereta India Digitalisasikan Layanan Keluhan PenumpangDilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman manoramaonline.com (20/7/2018), para kaum hawa yang singgah ke halte bus yang terletak di Kazhakkoottam junction ini dapat menggunakan toilet multifungsi yang juga berfungsi sebagai ruang menyusui.last_img read more
