2016 SOFIC (Special Operations Forces Industry Conference) will be held May 23–26, 2016 at the Tampa Convention Center, Tampa, FL. This year’s conference theme, “Evolving the Network to Counter Emerging Threats,” reflects the enduring vision of a global Special Operations Forces (SOF) network, acknowledging the SOF network is in place and now must adapt to address present and future threats. The conference will provide a forum for military, including partner nations, government, academia, and industry stakeholders to network and discuss how to best support global SOF in today’s environment.

The conference will open with SOF-centric panel discussions and workshops followed by remarks from the USSOCOM Commander and Acquisition Executive who will each provide their perspectives on SOF challenges, trends and capability gaps, and provide their thoughts on how USSOCOM and its industry partners can work together to find shared solutions. Throughout the week, conference attendees will have an opportunity to engage in discussions and Q&A sessions with USSOCOM’s Component Commanders, TSOC Commanders, Senior Enlisted Advisors, Program Executive Officers, and various acquisition experts across the Command.

2016 SOFIC will also include an International SOF Capabilities Demonstration. Attendees will witness a live tactical capabilities exercise jointly conducted by U.S. and International SOF that will highlight SOF sea, land, and air capabilities, and showcase the partnership and interoperable tactical capabilities of the global Special Operations Forces network.

MOTORISTS will soon have to pay to park at the only remaining big free council-run carpark at Glenelg — if they stay more than an hour.

However, local traders are worried Holdfast Bay Council’s plans to charge for parking at the newly-expanded Partridge St carpark will hurt trade in the seaside suburb.

From late next month, only the first hour in the 350-space carpark will be free.

The second and third hours will cost $2, plus $4 for every hour after that, up to a maximum of $40.

Cinemagoers will receive the first four hours free, once the theatres open in March.

The Forest Preserve District of Kane County has installed solar-powered, automated entrance gates at 32 of its most active preserves, so the gates automatically will open at sunrise and close at sunset, according to a press release.

Each gate costs approximately $3,600, with a total price of $115,200 for all of them,and their installation will save the district time and money, John Goreth, director of operations and maintenance for the forest preserve, stated in the release.

“Financially, it just makes sense,” Goreth stated in the release. “The automated system will save roughly 3,650 staff hours and 85,000 miles of driving, each year. This allows us to be more ‘green,’ concentrate on other priorities, and increase the efficiency of the entire Operations and Maintenance Department. It also provides better service to the public.”

The Operations and Maintenance Department had three shifts, one beginning an hour before sunrise and fluctuating throughout the year. The next shift started at 7 a.m., and closing shift went until one hour past sunset, and again, fluctuating throughout the year.

Hassles like not getting a legitimate parking ticket would soon be a thing of the past as Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) has directed its private parking contractors to install automatic boom barricades for monitored ticketing.

The move is likely to stop pilfering of lakhs of rupees in revenue for the corporation with 24X7 camera surveillance.

BMC intends to modernise and organise the revenue collection from municipal parking spaces in the state capital. To begin with, 14 parking lots have been identified for multilevel, boundary enclosed and open parking near main commercial areas.

BMC officials said the system would focus on ensuring transparent management system and surveillance of the vehicle parking lots.

CAMBRIDGE — People can now enjoy Shades Mills Conservation Area year-round, even before there’s someone on duty to let them in.

Automatic gates have been added to the Cambridge park, allowing visitors to get in an early run or walk on the trails or sink a few fishing lines.

“The park will be open for the public to come any time,” said park superintendent Brian Hunt.

Generally the hours will be dawn to dusk. Before, the gates didn’t open until 8 a.m., and the park closed for winter from mid-October to the first of May.

But that meant people couldn’t enjoy the park through all the seasons, or at convenient times. Some people would park nearby and enter the park when it was closed and without paying.

“People were using the facilities and not paying at the honour box,” Hunt said.

Shade’s Mills has 12 kilometres of hiking trails through a hardwood forest winding along Mill Creek, and fishing in the 32-hectare reservoir behind Shade’s Mill dam.

Electricians who carry out work on powered gates run the risk of criminal prosecution under health and safety legislation – even if the wiring and other electrical work undertaken follows the regulations and is to a high standard.

The warning comes from the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) Powered Gate Group which represents the leading UK manufacturers, suppliers, installers and maintainers of powered automatic gates and automation equipment.

Liability for the operating safety of an automated gate can rest with the last person who has carried out work on that particular gate. If the gate is unsafe for a reason unconnected with its electrical operation – because its crushing or impact forces are too high, for example – then an electrician who has worked on the gate could still be responsible for its overall safety.

This is because he is under a legal duty to ensure the gate is left in a safe condition when repair or maintenance work of any sort has carried out, explains the DHF Powered Gate Group.

Secured by Design, the UK police flagship initiative which designs out crime at the planning stage of buildings and developments, has backed Gate Safety Week. Also joining the campaign is the Crime Prevention Website which provides crime prevention advice to both the general public and the police service.

Gate Safety Week is being held from October 12 – 18 and is organised by the Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) Powered Gate Group which comprises Britain’s leading manufacturers, suppliers, installers and maintainers of powered automatic gates and gate automation equipment.

In the run up to Gate Safety Week, campaigners are actively encouraging best practice in all aspects of powered gates and will be working hard to further improve safety standards across the industry.

In recent years, three children and three adults have been killed in powered gate accidents. It is estimated there are more than 500,000 automated gates in service in the UK, yet the industry says just 30 per cent of these are safe to use.

Mick Reynolds, senior development officer at Association of Chief Police Officers Secured by Design, said: “Secured by Design and the DHF have a long history of working together. As well as needing to be secure, it is vital that gates are regularly inspected and properly maintained so that they perform properly and at the same time are safe to those using them. Gate Safety Week is a great way of raising awareness in this area.”

Someone really wants to get into Westbury Park and the Estates at Westbury in Bluffton.

Over the past two months, the new automatic gates there — which replaced ones that were not in use for nearly a year — have been repeatedly damaged.

I say “someone” is doing this but, according to management, at least four someones have been identified thus far.

The gates at both entrances, however, have been broken more than just four times, residents say.

I went over to the neighborhood Friday and, sure enough, the entrance gate off U.S. 278 was bent backward, as if the driver who did it said “Hahaha. Nope,” and drove on through.

I am often a “Hahaha. Nope” person in life — the kind who disregards signs and rules that seem silly and ineffective — but never when it could cause damage to another person or their property … or, let’s face it, worse, me and my own.

So who are these people breaking the gates there? Are they too good for the gates?

Or are they too bad for entrance?
