Slashdot: Coup in Arrakis Capitol Leaves Region in Flux

Slashdot | Wednesday April 01, 2015 @ 09:09:15 AM mt
Rube_Goldberg_Mentat writes: The power struggles between rival houses Atreides and Harkonnen have come to a T. It was reported earlier today that a coup led by Baron Vladimir Harkonnen was staged in the capitol of Arrakis. The House Atreides, which had only recently taken command of the planet and of the spice trade, is reported to have no survivors, though this is yet to be confirmed.Naysayers fear a collapse of the spice economy as a result of the violence. A r presentative from House Harkonnen has shared with the press that though times ahead may be rocky, "the spice will still flow."

Who says we don't have fun at work? Here is today's email from HR to all employees: TO: THE STAFF FROM: HR RE: ADDED FEATURE TO DOOR SCANNERS Good Morning, The whole idea behind the ID cards and scanners we use was to provide some additional security on the campus. It has worked pretty well for the most part, but I have noticed a couple of issues that needed some tweaking. First, the ID cards are pretty expensive, and we have been going through a lot of them due to lost cards, broken cards, etc. Secondly, I have noticed that some have problems navigating the card and door sensor while having both hands full. Also, several of you have been at my door of late without your ID cards and have to rely on someone letting you into the building. This, of course, defeats the purpose of being able to track when you enter the building. I contacted our security company about some kind of solution to the problem. I was very surprised to find that not only did they have the solution, but the solution was not costly at all. We just needed some additional software. Since we had been faithful customers for a few years they agreed to a discounted price. So, the software is in place, and we now have a great new feature upgrade that I know you will be as excited about as I am. It is FACIAL RECOGNITION! We have downloaded everyones photo from our Employee Directory into the facial recognition software. Now, all you need do to get into any of our buildings is to look directly into the scanner and the door will automatically open for you to enter. However, you will need to be within six inches of the scanner for it to activate. I hope you are as excited about this feature as I am. No replacement ID cards. No problems getting into the building when your hands are full, and its raining or snowing outside. So, please try it and give me your feedback. Sincerely, HR

A Pew Research Center survey released on Monday showed that only 62 percent of the public believes Congress, and not the President, should have final authority in establishing a treaty with Iran...that means nearly 40% of Americans have no idea what the Constitution says about the limits of the Presidential powers. @SGPAExPat Read more: http://www.politichicks.com//alert-america-is-in-real-dan/

Conrail was incorporated in Pennsylvania on October 25, 1974, and operations began April 1, 1976. The theory was that if the service was improved through increased capital investment, the economic basis of the railroad would be improved. During its first seven years, Conrail proved to be highly unprofitable, despite receiving billions of dollars of assistance from Congress. The corporation declared enormous losses on its federal income tax returns from 1976 through 1982, resulting in an accumulated net operating loss of $2.2 billion during that period. Congress once again reacted with support by passing the Northeast Rail Service Act of 1981 (NERSA),[8] which amended portions of the 3R Act by exempting Conrail from liability for any state taxes[9] and requiring the Secretary of Transportation to make arrangements for the sale of the government's interest in Conrail.[10] After NERSA was implemented, Conrail, under the aggressive leadership of L. Stanley Crane began to improve and reported taxable income between $2 million and $314 million each year from 1983 through 1986. Although Conrail's government-funded rebuilding of the dilapidated infrastructure and rolling stock it inherited from its six predecessors succeeded by the end of the 1970s in improving the physical condition of tracks, locomotives, and freight cars, the fundamental economic regulatory issues remained, and Conrail continued to post losses of as much as $1 million a day. Conrail management, recognizing the need for more regulatory freedoms to address the economic issues, were among the parties lobbying for what became the Staggers Act of 1980, which significantly loosened the Interstate Commerce Commission's rigid economic control of the rail industry. This allowed Conrail and other carriers the opportunity to become profitable and strengthen their finances.[11] The Staggers Act allowed the setting of rates that would recover capital and operating cost (fully allocated cost recovery) by each and every route mile the railroad operated. There would be no more cross-subsidization of costs between route-miles (that is, revenue on profitable route segments were not used to subsidize routes where rates were set at intermodal parity, yet still did recover fully allocated costs). Finally, where current and/or future traffic projections showed that profitable volumes of traffic would not return, the railroads were allowed to abandon those routes, shippers and passengers to other modes of transportation. With the Staggers Act, railroads, including Conrail, were freed from the requirement to operate services with open-ended losses for the public convenience and necessity of those who chose rail services as their mode of transportation. Conrail transfer caboose 18065 brings up the rear of a local freight passing Porter, Indiana, in the early 1990s. Conrail began turning a profit by 1981, the result of the Staggers Act freedoms and its own managerial improvements under the leadership of L. Stanley Crane, who had been chief executive officer of the Southern Railway.[12] While the Staggers Act helped immensely in allowing all railroads to more easily abandon unprofitable rail lines and set its own freight rate, it was under Crane's leadership that Conrail truly became a profitable operation. Soon after Crane took office in 1981 he shed another 4,400 miles from the Conrail system in the following two years, which accounted for only 1% of the railroad's overall traffic and 2% of its profits while saving it millions of dollars in maintenance costs.[2] NERSA relieved Conrail of its requirement to provide commuter service on the Northeast Corridor, further improving its finances. After considerable debate in Congress, the Conrail Privatization Act of 1986 was signed into law by President Reagan on October 21, 1986.[13] The then-largest initial public offering in US history came on March 26, 1987 when Conrail's stock, worth $1.65 billion, was sold to private investors.[14] Commuter rail operations[edit] Conrail inherited the commuter rail operations of its predecessor lines, and operated them until 1983, when these services were transferred to state or metropolitan transit authorities. Except for MARC, the transit authorities purchased the track and right-of-way on which their commuter operations ran, leaving Conrail freight operations as a tenant. Boston: MBTA Lower Hudson Valley of New York State and southwest Connecticut: Metro-North New Jersey: New Jersey Transit Philadelphia: SEPTA Maryland: MARC [15] Breakup 19971999[edit] With Conrail's increasing success, its two eastern rail competitors, CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railway, engaged in a takeover battle to control the railroad and expand their systems. In 1997, however, the two railroads struck a compromise agreement to jointly acquire Conrail and split most of its assets between them, with Norfolk Southern acquiring a larger portion of the Conrail network via a larger stock buyout. Under the final agreement approved by the Surface Transportation Board, Norfolk Southern acquired 58 percent of Conrail's assets, including roughly 6,000 Conrail route miles, and CSX received 42 percent of Conrail's assets, including about 3,600 route miles.[16] The buyout was approved by the Surface Transportation Board (successor agency to the Interstate Commerce Commission) and took place on August 22, 1998. Under the control of lawyer-turned CEO Tim O'Toole, the lines were transferred to two newly formed limited liability companies, to be subsidiaries of Conrail but leased to CSX and Norfolk Southern, respectively New York Central Lines (NYC) and Pennsylvania Lines (PRR). The NYC and PRR reporting marks, which had passed to Conrail, were also transferred to the new companies, and NS also acquired the CR reporting mark. Operations under CSX and NS began June 1, 1999.[17] As the names indicated, CSX acquired the former New York Central Railroad main line from New York City and Boston, Massachusetts to Cleveland, Ohio, and the former Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway (NYC Big Four) line to Indianapolis, Indiana (continuing west to East St. Louis, Illinois on a former Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad (PRR Panhandle Route line), while Norfolk Southern got the former Pennsylvania Railroad main line and Cleveland and Pittsburgh Railroad from Jersey City, New Jersey to Cleveland, and the rest of the former NYC main line west to Chicago, Illinois. Thus the Conrail "X" was neatly split in two, CSX getting one diagonal from Boston to St. Louis and Norfolk Southern the other from New York to Chicago. The two lines cross at a bridge southeast of downtown Cleveland (41.447N 81.627W), where the former Cleveland and Pittsburgh Railroad crosses over the NYC's former Cleveland Short Line Railway around the south side of Cleveland. In three major metropolitan areas - North Jersey, South Jersey/Philadelphia, and Detroit - Conrail Shared Assets Operations continues to serve as a terminal operating company owned by both CSX and NS. The Conrail Shared Assets Operations arrangement was a concession made to federal regulators who were concerned about the lack of competition in certain rail markets and logistical problems associated with the breaking up the Conrail operations as they existed in densely populated areas with many local customers. The smaller Conrail operation that exists today serves rail freight customers in these markets on behalf of its two owners. A fourth area, the former Monongahela Railway in southwest Pennsylvania, was originally owned jointly by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, Pennsylvania Railroad and Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad. Conrail absorbed the company in 1993, and assigned trackage rights to CSX, the successor to the B&O and P&LE. With the Conrail breakup, those lines are owned by NS, but the CSX trackage rights are still in place.
