Vietnamese cricket protein producer Cricket One has raised an undisclosed sum in a seed funding round co-led by 500 Startups and Singapore-based Masik Enterprises.Cricket One co-founders Nam Dang and Bicky Nguyen established the company in 2017 to provide environmentally friendly food sources beyond Southeast Asian countries and help the livelihood of farmers.Dang said that in Vietnam, crickets mature naturally in 28 days and takes in organic farm byproducts as feed.“By outsourcing crickets growing to specially trained local farmers, not only do we achieve cost advantage, but we also ensure better local incomes and community development and better global sustainability,” he said.Cricket One said it only needs 2 liters of water and 1.5 kilograms of feed to produce 1 kilogram of edible weight.“In fact, with each hectare able to produce over 250 tons of pure protein per year, it is almost 50x more productive than growing soybeans for the famous Impossible Burger,” said Masik Enterprises director Mikhail Zeldovich.

It's already clear that most savvy industry leaders have a greater understanding of blockchain technology than was the case a couple of years ago.This stems from a surge with internal research and development, in partnership with third parties, as blockchain has the potential to be deployed in a variety of use cases.As the number of Hyperledger pilot projects increased, so has awareness.It's improved among the project participants and elsewhere in their industries, with competitor companies beginning to consider whether they should seek to gain a competitive advantage from a blockchain deployment.According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, blockchain deployments will enable banks to realize savings on cross-border settlement transactions of more than $27 billion by the end of 2030, thereby reducing costs by more than 11 percent per on-chain transaction.According to the analyst's assessment, financial services firms that integrate blockchain should achieve cost reductions in payment processing and reconciliation, and in treasury operations and compliance.

Huawei announced that its CloudFabric Solution succeeded in helping China Mobile’s MIGU construct elastic, intelligent, and accurate converged data center (DC) IT resource pools, which are to be put into commercial use imminently.As the only subsidiary of China Mobile that runs audio and video services, MIGU is responsible for platform construction, service operation, content cooperation, and new product development of audio and video services.The continuous service expansion poses the following challenges to data center networks that use traditional solutions:Resource pooling: The number of servers required by a single DC increases from several hundred to tens of thousands.In addition, intra-DC and inter-DC converged IT resource pools need to be constructed.Automatic deployment: Rapidly emerging new services need to be provisioned on data center networks in minutes.
Tesla’s Semi is off to a promising start, despite there being no official pricing information available yet: In addition to a Walmart pilot, Canadian grocery giant Loblaw is purchasing 25 of the heavy duty all-electric transport trucks (via Canadian Press), with a $5,000 deposit for each upfront even though pricing is TBD for the vehicle, which is supposed to start shipping in 2019.Loblaw has a target of running a fully electric vehicle fleet to support its stores, as part of a goal of reducing its emissions impact by 2030.The plan is to eventually have as many as 350 zero-emission vehicles in operation by that time, and taking those diesel cars off the road could help it reduce its carbon footprint by the equivalent of taking around 20,000 consumer cars with internal combustion engines off the road.Tesla has said that its cost of operation for the Semi will help shippers save money on a per mile basis right away, and that’s likely meant to help lessen the impact of sticker shock when it finally does reveal the upfront price.But as I mentioned with the Walmart pilot, which will involve a trial of 15 Semi trucks across the U.S. and Canada, there’s additional value in helping these major shippers meet their green targets.This Loblaw backing is another sign that Tesla’s crazy truck dreams likely aren’t all that crazy after all, and could be perfectly timed to take advantage of a business climate where major retailers with significant logistics operations are looking for ways to minimize their carbon footprint, while also hoping to achieve cost benefits over the lifetime of their fleet.
A "first-of-its-kind" optimization model developed by engineers at Lehigh University - in collaboration with Pennsylvania's Department of Corrections (PADOC) - has won the prestigious Daniel H. Wagner Prize for Excellent in Operations Research Practice for 2017.According to a press release announcing the competition winner: "IADSS includes a new hierarchical multi-objective MILO model, which accurately describes the inmate assignment problem.Awarded by INFORMS, the leading international association for Operations Research & Analytics professionals, the Daniel H. Wagner Prize for Excellence in Operations Research Practice emphasizes the quality and coherence of the analysis used in practice.In the long run, they say, the system could shorten prison stays and reduce recidivism--the rate at which released prisoners commit new crimes -- by giving inmates more timely access to the treatment programs they need to earn parole.In a report released Sept. 1, PADOC officials said IADSS has enabled the corrections department to achieve cost savings and improvements in four areas:Shorter waiting lists for treatment programs.

'Please stop leaking info to The Reg' says UK bossExclusive Less than four months after DXC Technologies was created and the Frankenfirm is already embarking on a second round of jobs cuts with hundreds of frontline support techies earmarked for the chop.The company - an unholy alliance between CSC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services - is planning to chop $1bn in costs globally in its first fiscal year by consolidating real estate, including data centres and chopping heads.The first round of redundancies at the new organ started in May, just weeks after DXC was formed, but it was largely staff working in roles duplicated across the two merged entities that were being made redundant.“As part of the merger that created our new company, DXC Technologies has committed to achieve cost savings through improvements in efficiency and effectiveness, which is typical in mergers of this scale and nature.“The UK business must play a part in achieving these savings whilst delivering on the commitments to grow our business and improve our margins.
On a worldwide basis, companies are pausing efforts or taking a step back from globalization.In the United States, it is most evident in the proposals underway in Congress and the White House for H-1B visa reform, rising trade barriers, and potential changes to the tax that could change the tax implications of offshoring.Although the extent of changes is not currently known, it is reasonable and probable that they will make offshoring more difficult and more expensive for customers and their service providers as well as less socially acceptable.Is your organization one of the many that are now seeking alternatives to sending work offshore to achieve cost reduction?Among my advisory company s clients, we re seeing evidence of organizations currently postponing or cancelling initiatives to send work offshore.It is not yet clear that there is a large movement to do that.

MoreThe sign at the IBM facility near Boulder, Colorado September 8, 2009. International Business Machines Corp. repeated that it expects to earn "at least" $9.70 a share this year.NEW YORK Reuters - International Business Machines Corp is in an unusual fix in telling big U.S. banks they can use its Watson software of Jeopardy-winning fame as a cost-saving solution: bankers say they like it, but cannot afford it.Banks are in the fifth year of their belt-tightening campaigns that began in 2011, chasing billions of dollars' worth of savings, and vendors that offer everything from technology to janitorial services are getting squeezed.With persistently low interest rates hurting revenue and businesses like bond trading hemmed in by new regulations, few on Wall Street expect the austerity to end any time soon.For IBM the irony lies in the fact that senior bank executives say they believe its artificial intelligence software could help them achieve cost-cutting goals in coming years, but are not ready to pay for Watson today.Several technology executives from large banks told Reuters that while the software may have enormous potential, they would struggle to convince top managers, laser-focused on quarterly results, to sign off on investments that do not offer an immediate payoff.
