47-year-old Dolphin Is Happy Go “Lucky” at Brookfield Zoo

FedEx Corporation

Lucky, a playful 47-year-old dolphin currently residing at Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, is undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma, a common type of skin and oral cancer. Lucky previously resided at another accredited facility in Florida since 2008. When it became clear that he would need more advanced treatment, the Chicago Zoological Society contacted FedEx for help transporting Lucky home to Brookfield Zoo. FedEx offered to assist as a part of the company’s FedEx Cares “Delivering for Good” initiative, in which FedEx lends its global network and unparalleled logistics expertise to organizations with mission-critical needs and helps communities before, during and after crises. Learn more about FedEx Cares Delivering for Good initiative here. “We are so happy to have Lucky back at Brookfield Zoo, although we wish it were under different circumstances,” said Rita Stacey, curator of marine mammals for CZS. “Due to Lucky’s calm nature, he is making this important medical treatment easy to accomplish by being 100 percent cooperative.” Throughout his treatments, Lucky receives constant praise from staff and afterwards he is rewarded with an extra special fish such as a large herring or salmon. Lucky will continue to receive cryotherapy treatments, the frequency of which will depend on response to therapy. To continue monitoring his health and well-being, he will have regular follow-up examinations and diagnostic imaging to screen for metastasis (spread) of his cancer. “Brookfield Zoo is now Lucky’s permanent home,” said Stacey. “He is such a special animal and we want to provide him with the necessary medical care to ensure he has the best quality of life during his golden years.” Sources: Chicago Zoological Society PR Photo Credit: Jim Schulz/CZS-Brookfield Zoo View additional multimedia and more ESG storytelling from FedEx Corporation on 3blmedia.com

Tackling the Hot Topic of Global Energy Consumption for Mobile Networks

Ericsson

Global energy consumption for mobile networks is a hot topic. Carbon footprint and costs generated by energy use is one of our industry’s greatest challenges. As long as the energy mix utilized by the networks is not carbon neutral and comes in part from fossil fuel, mobile network operations will contribute towards the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This means that reduced energy consumption through smarter use of mobile networks can have a decreasing effect on greenhouse gas emissions. If energy consumption continues to increase, then most likely so will energy prices. Either way, there will be higher costs for network operations and the combination will raise total cost of ownership. Addressing energy consumption will take the combined effort of the telecommunications industry. It needs to be considered from every angle, leaving no stone unturned. An inconvenient truth: for RAN The first step to solving a problem is accepting that there is one. Which is why our Network Analytics function supports observability of energy consumption across the generations. The main villain of this story is site consumption. Radio access network (RAN) sites account for roughly 85 percent of network consumption with data centers making up the remaining 15. This could increase in the case of cloud RAN. Ericsson’s forthcoming Intelligent Automation Platform will support rApps such as the future Energy Saving Manager. The Energy Saving Manager can take centralized decisions regarding what energy saving features to activate and by what configuration. Part of the Ericsson philosophy for intelligent RAN automation is to choose centralized versus decentralized control by each specific use case for maximum impact. For improved energy efficiency, centralized control allows holistic decision-making based on analysis of data from multiple sites. This analysis can then be used to create the best local setup to maximize KPIs and performance while reducing energy consumption overall. Taking things one step further, improved data collection and analysis enables service providers to make active decisions on prioritization. This includes considering if (and how much) negative KPI impact can be allowed to further improve energy savings. This may differ depending on where in the network that energy savings and KPI targets can be achieved and adjusted. Think globally, act locally: on the node Saving energy on node level requires the energy-metering feature to support the energy analytics function. MIMO sleep is an efficient feature to maintain user experience while minimizing waste when lower capacity is sufficient. The problem was that it used to require manual configuration which is both time consuming and less efficient. To address the issue, we launched AI-powered MIMO sleep, which automates parameter setting to reduce manual work and improve feature performance (both for KPIs and energy savings) at the node. For more information check out the results from the  PoC. Capabilities like AI-powered MIMO sleep mode allows us to make the best of the current paradigm of resource use. The next leap in node energy savings will come from a paradigm shift. Today, resources are by definition ‘always on’ and powered off or put in low power mode when the traffic situation permits. In the future, we envision a move to an ‘always available’ paradigm in which resources are dormant until needed. With intelligent predictions they can be activated when they are needed. Using AI-based capabilities, we can perform accurate traffic predictions to further savings while allowing users the same great performance. The day after tomorrow: an outlook Looking ahead, we see that Reinforcement Learning (RL) approaches will further improve energy savings and network performance. RL is particularly useful in the type of dynamic, complex, and high-demand environments that constitute mobile networks. There are multiple ways that RL can be applied to networks in general and energy saving specifically. One example is the two successful trials Ericsson concluded applying reinforcement learning to remote electrical tilt of antennas (RET). At a glance it doesn’t seem that complicated but every time you tilt an antenna it changes the shape of the cell the antenna is in. This in turn affects the user experience of those served by that cell and the cells around it, further tilting of surrounding antennas has a cascading effect in the network. This makes it all the more impressive that in a single live network, when optimizing for reduced ERP, Ericsson and the partnering service provider caused a 20 percent decrease in DL transmission power without affecting performance. RL also presents more opportunities of large-scale and complex orchestration. For example, energy savings could be integrated into traffic control and used to route traffic to the most energy efficient resources in the network. This would allow deep sleep of other resources while the traffic control scheme is active. If we take a step back and look at the network and its entire lifecycle it is easy to see that we should not only optimize for today and what is already deployed but also take serious account of what should be deployed in the future. Considering what to deploy and where is especially important now that much of the world is in the middle of the 5G rollout. It is quite simple: smarter, more accurate deployment reduces required hardware and the environmental footprint of the network. The cognitive software suite has multiple features that supports in this. Including capacity planning for traffic forecasting, site selection to determine the best place for deployment, and RF design to optimize the models used for network design. The total impact is an optimized network layout that reduces pressure on both wallet and environment. Earth hour, every hour At Ericsson, we know that business can only thrive in a sustainable environment. But, of course, unlike Earth hour, mobile networks cannot be allowed to power off so we must all make sure that we optimize every hour. We take this challenge seriously and provide solutions across mobile networks and their lifecycles. We believe that this benefits us now and future generations. Reach out if you want to know more about how we can help you reduce your mobile network’s carbon footprint and become more energy efficient!

3 Things to Know About Engaging Employees in Sustainability

TriplePundit

As the Great Resignation continues, employers are seeking more ways to help employees feel fulfilled in their careers. According to a study by the National Environmental Education Foundation, almost 90 percent of employees engaged in their company’s sustainability work say it enhances their job satisfaction and overall feelings about the company. It can be challenging, however, to know where to begin with getting employees more involved in sustainability initiatives. EarthShare is a national organization that helps employers, communities and nonprofits connect to address environmental issues. Representatives from both EarthShare and the sustainability team at Facebook spoke with TriplePundit about three themes they’re seeing as they look to engage employees in sustainability-related initiatives. 1. Creating cross-departmental communication within a company helps build employee engagement in sustainability “Green teams” are one strategy for creating greater employee engagement around sustainability. As Robin Perkins, EarthShare's vice president of communications and marketing, explained: “Green teams are platforms for employees to bring up issues specific to their workplace and suggest more sustainable alternatives.” “These teams can form at any kind of company: Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Oliver Wyman, etc.,” Perkins said. Facebook, for example, has Green@ (pronounced “Green At”) chapters. These are location-based, interdepartmental groups composed of employees who are passionate about supporting the company’s environmental efforts but don’t hold sustainability-related roles. “We look at Green@ members as community builders,” said Kati Kallins, sustainability program manager for Facebook. “The Green@ groups give voice to employees, providing an outlet to share their concerns, present solutions, and drive change internally.” Facebook also hosts two companywide sustainability events each year: Earth Week in April and a one-day Sustainability Summit in September. Last year’s events were both held virtually due to the pandemic. The Earth Week livestream sessions drew more than 7,100 viewers from around the world and featured employees from 23 Facebook offices on three continents. The inaugural Sustainability Summit highlighted programs such as Facebook’s Net Zero 2030 roadmap and water restoration projects. “It’s important to provide the historical context on these multi-year projects and why Facebook is prioritizing certain sustainability topics over others. The story behind how we’re enabling climate action is sometimes even more interesting than what we’re doing, which employees will see discussed in the media,” Kallins said. Many of the initiatives discussed at the Sustainability Summit make a large difference in terms of environmental impact, but they are not always top of mind in day-to-day employee life. Kallins gave the example of the company’s data centers, which are the most resource-intensive areas of Facebook’s operations. Not all employees think of data centers when they think about sustainability measures, she said, as they are not as top of mind as something tangible like, say, sustainably farmed options in the workplace dining facilities. 2. As interest in climate and environmental justice grows, it’s important to inform employees Following the release of EarthShare’s lauded Building Equity for All web series, Facebook invited the organization as a production partner to develop a panel discussion on climate and environmental justice at this year’s Sustainability Summit. “Historically speaking, many diverse voices have felt disenfranchised in talks about climate change and the environment,” Perkins said. “Part of our mission is to inspire people and businesses to help build a more just future for everyone,” she continued. “[We] saw the need to expand our community to include more voices, and elevate those voices, so we have been bringing the voices of experts to employees — discussing what the issues are and what is most needed.” Mary MacDonald, EarthShare’s senior vice president of corporate engagement, recognized We Act for Environmental Justice, The Solutions Project and Groundswell as three organizations home to some of these expert voices. We Act and The Solutions Project collaborated with EarthShare for the Facebook climate justice event, and Groundswell helped with the Building Equity for All series. “It’s important to call out the incredible work being done on the ground by the hundreds of grassroots and fence-line community groups across the country that are doing the critical work that is making a difference for their immediate communities and beyond,” MacDonald said. And while the business community is still only beginning to understand and address climate justice, it is imperative for employers to inform and engage employees on this important topic. “So many companies have both DEI [diversity, equity and inclusion] and climate mitigation programs,” MacDonald said. “It only makes sense to make the connection for employees between these two areas — it helps move both areas forward for those companies that are doing this good work.” 3. Meet employees where they are Since the start of the pandemic, flexibility has taken on even more importance in the workplace. Employees are looking for a greater say in their compensation, schedule, benefits, location and more. Likewise, one of the best ways to increase employee participation in sustainability efforts is to acknowledge that not everyone has the same strengths or interests. “What we’ve found is that you can’t use a one-size-fits-all approach to engaging employees,” said Kallins of Facebook. “It’s vital to match your programming to the specific passions and skill sets of your people.” Facebook’s Green@ teams are ideal for employees looking to build community and connections both within and across Facebook office locations. For employees more interested in climate science and activism, Facebook has started its own cohort of The Climate Reality Project Leadership Corps, which includes online climate action training led by Al Gore and a team of scientists and activists. And for tech employees looking to make a difference, Facebook offers Sustainability Hackathons. In these incubator-like events, employees work together to create new climate-related innovations, covering topics like biodiversity and environmental justice. The hackathons generated more than 20 new product ideas in 2020 alone. For Kallins, these programs are just the beginning for bringing about real change and progress. “We’ll only succeed if everyone sees climate action as part of their job,” she said.

NYPA and SIGA Explore Using Level-0 Monitoring Technology To Overcome Cybersecurity Gaps in the Energy Sector

SIGA OT Solutions

The New York Power Authority (NYPA), America's largest state power organization and SIGA OT Solutions, a leading OT cybersecurity company, formed a collaboration in 2019 as part of a New York State economic development partnership, and have published a white paper based on their findings, called Overcoming Cybersecurity Gaps in the Energy Sector: How to Address Stuxnet-Type Scenarios Using Level-0 Monitoring. NYPA identified cyberattacks as a major threat to its operations in the coming years. NYPA’s cyber division—together with the AGILe team—aimed to reduce the risk of cyber-attacks on its facilities. The main objective of the collaboration is to reveal otherwise undetectable cyber threats—such as unique Stuxnet-type scenarios—using SigaGuard, an advanced electrical signal conditioning and analysis solution. SigaGuard is the leading process-oriented detection (POD) solution based on Level 0 information which cannot be tampered with or masked. Cybersecurity gaps in OT environments need to be addressed taking a multi-level approach, with ongoing threat analysis to minimize the attack surface of potential hackers. When considering adversary tactics and threat models, there is an apparent gap in the field level of the process and sensors, Level 0. This gap was exploited in several cases in recent years and can cause dangerous situations—which can impact the OT process and endanger lives. The recently published white paper describes how NYPA and SIGA collaborated in a simulated attack environment to test these scenarios. The sequence of attacks was carefully designed and executed by NYPA’s AGILe lab team and cyber experts, focusing on the main cyber scenarios which affect the real operation of a sub-station with either false or no reporting to the control level. The test outcome validates the significance of Level 0 monitoring as a holistic approach towards OT cybersecurity, clearly demonstrating the unique advantages of combining POD and Level 0 data. Focusing on electric signals—before they are converted into data packets and filtered by the PLC—is probably the most effective technique for accurately identifying an operation anomaly, regardless of the cause. It can bring the highest possible level of visibility into process equipment and sensor functioning, closing an intractable gap against determined adversaries. Link to white paper: https://sigasec.com/resources/overcoming-cybersecurity-gaps-in-the-energy-sector-how-to-address-stuxnet-type-scenarios-using-level-0-monitoring/ Alan Ettlinger, Sr. Director, Research, Technology Development and Innovation at New York Power Authority, noted: “NYPA places a priority on preventing any downtime, failure or malfunctions of its mission-critical infrastructure, and we invest a great deal of effort and resources to ensure resilience and security. SigaGuard’s monitoring system that detects anomalous behavior and provides real-time validation of process data was demonstrated in a substation environment, which is one of our critical assets, and conforms with NYPA’s innovative deployment plan in the areas of process resilience and security.” Amir Samoiloff, co-founder and CEO of SIGA, added: “SIGA’s cooperation with NYPA has demonstrated a strong and strategic bond with a major utility in the U.S., with the highest professional conduct. This collaboration became possible due to the excellent expertise and motivation of the NYPA team. SIGA is looking forward to deepening its partnership with NYPA’s elite cyber protection team by further integrating SIGA’s cyber security solution, SigaGuard, into additional NYPA critical infrastructure centers.” About NYPA NYPA is the largest state public power organization in the US, operating 16 generating facilities and more than 1,400 circuit-miles of transmission lines. More than 80 percent of the electricity NYPA produces is clean renewable hydropower. NYPA uses no tax money or state credit. It finances its operations through the sale of bonds and revenues earned in large part through sales of electricity.
