Get Ahead of the Curve at Work: Unexpected Productivity Perks

first_imgWhether workers are constantly on the go from meeting to meeting, or just need a comfortable place to anchor down, the key word pushing innovation in today’s office is flexibility.The modern workforce requires versatile technology that can meet whatever needs the day may bring, while ensuring productivity remains at the forefront.Today, we’re excited to announce the latest addition to the world’s #1 monitor lineup: The Dell 34 Curved Monitor (P3418HW) with 2560 x 1080 WFHD resolution, allowing workers to work more comfortably and more flexibly than ever before, and all at an affordable price point.When combined with Dell’s extensive list of curved displays, peripherals and accessories, this monitor can support modern workers on the go, during long deskbound hours, and everywhere in between.Work on a curved monitorRegardless of industry, today’s employees are spending more time in front of a screen than ever before. That’s why Dell has quite literally bent our product specifications to better meet their needs through our curved monitors.With 2560 x 1080 WFHD resolution, our new curved monitor enables an immersive wrap-around experience with a greater field of vision. Not only does this ultra-wide screen help minimize peripheral distractions, it also gives users a 33 percent increase in extended view (vs. a 27” FHD screen), allowing them to see more onscreen content within a single glance. The screen curvature offers a consistent focal length, meaning workers’ eyes don’t have to work as hard throughout the day to view the entire screen.Of course, their eyes aren’t the only part of their body putting in long hours. The Dell 34 Curved Monitor features an adjustable stand, allowing workers to tilt and adjust their screen to the height and angle that works best for them.And this ultra-wide screen was made for multitasking. Workers can utilize Dell Easy Arrange to seamlessly lay out and move between multiple applications or leverage the Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture features to work on multiple tasks across multiple PCs simultaneously.“Our research has shown that 21:9 widescreen monitors are invaluable in office environments, especially given that many roles today require heavy multitasking,” says Bryan Ma, VP of Devices Research at IDC. “Curved panels in particular provide a more productive experience by bringing the sides of an ultrawide display closer to the user without the fatigue and limitations of flat screens.”The Dell 34 Curved Monitor is designed for workers in the financial or data analytics industries, as well as business professionals, engineers or programmers looking for a more affordable curved monitor, which still meets the intense demands of their day-to-day tasks. The three-sided ultrathin bezel adds to the expansive view and makes it easier to use multiple monitors without image interruption. It also displays color beautifully right out of the box with 99 percent RGB coverage.And, as always, workers in creative or visual fields will appreciate Dell’s precise color calibration. This monitor features 99 percent sRGB, and as a bonus, workers’ eyes are also less fatigued from blue light emissions, thanks to ComfortView, and its flicker-free feature.Pump up the volumeFor those times workers need to keep their heads down and focus, we’ve even considered the best way to optimize their motivational playlists.The Dell 34 Curved Monitor comes with built-in dual 9W speakers for clear audio when they need to share, or they can plug in in Dell’s Pro Stereo USB headset to seamlessly switch between playing tunes and taking calls.If our users’ office setup isn’t working as hard as they are — it isn’t working.Dell 34 Curved Monitor (P3418HW) is just the latest addition to our line of displays aimed at supporting our customers as their technology needs change throughout the day, whether working, playing or somewhere in-between. The Dell 34 Curved Monitor (P3418HW) will be available to order Nov. 29 in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia and Jan. 9 in the United States for $699.last_img read more

Aceh on alert for Rohingya refugee boats spotted in Andaman Sea

first_imgFishermen in the area have also been told to be on alert and to coordinate with security forces if they spot boats carrying refugees.“There is still no information regarding their latest location,” Miftah Cut, the secretary-general of traditional fishing community Panglima Laot, told The Jakarta Post on Saturday. He said that Panglima Laot would provide necessities for the refugees if they encountered Rohingya boats in Indonesian waters.Acehnese fisherman had previously rescued stranded Rohingya refugees in 2015.  “We actually never intended to bring them ashore. But they started swimming in the sea, so we rescued them,” Miftah said.In 2018, five Rohingya stranded at sea for almost three weeks were rescued by Indonesian fishermen but several others died during the ordeal.Rima Shah Putra, the director of the Geutanyoe Foundation, a local refugee assistance organization, urged all stakeholders to safeguard the rights of refugees, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.“It is still unclear whether the refugees will land in Aceh or Malaysia. However, the government should not use fear about the COVID-19 pandemic to dismiss the asylum seekers,” Rima said.Amnesty International Indonesia and the Risalah Jakarta Forum have also called on the Indonesian government to rescue the refugees.“We urge the government of Indonesia not to refuse or push back boats carrying hundreds of people seeking safety,” said Amnesty International Indonesia executive director Usman Hamid said in a statement on Friday.“It is necessary for authorities in the country to allow all boats carrying refugees to safely disembark to avert a humanitarian crisis. We appreciate Indonesia’s past leadership where the authorities allowed Rohingya people to land in May 2015. This sort of effort should be continued,” he added.When asked whether Indonesia would accept the refugees if they asked to disembark on Indonesian shores, Foreign Minstry spokesperson Teuku Faizasyah said it was still a hypothetical situation.“Actually, Indonesian policy is to prevent [refugees] from [making the journey] as boat people, right from the beginning. The voyage will jeopardize the safety of anyone on the boats, even more so if there is an element of trafficking in persons,” Faizasyah said. (trn)Topics : Security forces and fishermen in Aceh are on alert for two speedboats carrying Rohingya refugees spotted in the Andaman Sea and apparently heading towards Malaysia. The head of the Aceh Police’s water and air policing unit (Ditpolairud), Sr. Comr. Jemmy Rosdiantoro, said he had been alerted of the boats by the Office of the Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister and had instructed his personnel to be on guard for the possibility that the boats would enter Acehnese waters.“From the air patrols that we have conducted, we have not yet found the boats carrying Rohingya immigrants,” he said on Friday as quoted by “We will continue air patrols for the next few days.”last_img read more

Lukaku shines in Chelsea friendly win

first_img Eden Hazard, with a penalty, Ramires, Demba Ba and John Terry made it four before the break and soon after the restart Bertrand Traore scored his second goal of the tour to demonstrate why Mourinho is so keen to retain the services of the 17-year-old Burkina Faso trialist. Lukaku netted either side of Ramires’ second to remind Mourinho – whose sole remaining transfer target is Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney – of his quality by taking his tour tally to four. Romelu Lukaku continued his hot scoring streak as Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea completed their pre-season tour of Asia with an 8-1 victory over the BNI Indonesia All-Stars at the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta. Press Associationcenter_img When the All-Stars, who conceded seven to Arsenal earlier this month, found the net it was another goal for a Chelsea player, as Greg Nwokolo’s cross deflected in off Tomas Kalas. Hazard, Ba, Ramires and Victor Moses spurned chances before Terry was felled by Hamka Hamsa, giving Chelsea a penalty. Hazard sent goalkeeper Kurnia Meiga the wrong way and Chelsea’s onslaught continued with Nathaniel Chalobah, who was starting in midfield, and right-back Oliveira Wallace each hitting post. A second followed when Hazard’s trickery on the left found Ryan Bertrand in the box and his cushioned header fell for Ramires to turn and blast into the net. Ramires was then denied his second, but Meiga parried only to Ba, who netted Chelsea’s third. Meiga was the only All-Star to put up any real resistance and saved from Marco van Ginkel, before retrieving the ball at the feet of Hazard as the Belgian forward tried to round the goalkeeper. There was a fourth before the interval when Bertrand’s inswinging free-kick was met by Gary Cahill and Terry headed in. Traore, one of a host of half-time substitutions, curled a left-footed effort into the top corner for a fifth and Lukaku converted Hazard’s cross for a sixth. The Blues continued to forge forward and Lukaku romped down the left on the counter-attack and fed Ramires, who fired in. Having created one, Lukaku then scored his second before Chelsea’s defence was breached as Nwokolo reached the byline and his cross into the six-yard box went in off Kalas. last_img read more
