BALURGHAT: Train services were disrupted for about two hours after a woman and her two minor daughters were crushed to death under a truck near Dalkhola railway crossing on National Highway 34, around 39 km away from Raiganj on Thursday night. The deceased were identified as Ghurni Bansfore and her two daughters as Rinki and Mala. The mob chasing the truck, caught the driver and thrashed him rampantly. Later, police after being informed rushed to the spot, rescued the killer truck driver and admitted him to the Raiganj super-specialty hospital. His condition is stated to be critical. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe agitated locals staged a demonstration at the railway crossing and blocked the NH 34 for about two hours following the mishap for which both train and road transport services remained disrupted. Normalcy was, however, restored after the law-enforcers pacified the wrath of the locals. Police later sent the bodies for autopsy. According to police, the truck was going to Siliguri from Raiganj at a high speed. While reaching Dalkhola railway crossing, the driver lost control and hit the victims. “It is apprehended that it was too late for the driver when he found the victims just in front of the speeding vehicle and hit them causing immediate death of the trio” said a police officer. Police seized the vehicle. A case of reckless driving has also been registered.

Referring to age-old relationship of India and China, Liyou said that the relationship in both the state and provincial level should be fostered better as a part of bilateral relationships.

The future of work is constantly evolving. Like it or not, technology remains a massive disruptor across industries. Change in the workplace is not only coming, it’s already here, and you want to make sure you’re on top of the skills that are rapidly shaping the jobs marketplace and are influencing your ability to remain relevant within your field.A recent study by Upwork, an online marketplace for freelancers, identified some of fastest growing skills that are shaping the freelancer market. A sharp spike in interest surrounding emerging technologies, especially with regard to cybersecurity, blockchain and artificial intelligence, heavily inform what have become the 10 fastest-growing skills:Robotics Blockchain Bitcoin Penetration testing React.jsAmazon Web Services Lambda, Augmented realityDeep learning Instagram marketingFinal Cut Pro XRobotics, blockchain and Bitcoin are all making first appearances on the list. The freelancer marketplace, according to Rich Pearson, the senior vice-president of online freelance platform Upwork, acts as an indicator for impactful workplace trends on a much larger scale for the coming years. “It’s a window into how companies are embracing new technologies,” he tells Entrepreneur. “The fact that robotics, blockchain and bitcoin related skills are on the list indicates that many companies are unable to find these skills locally and are turning to freelance specialists to enable them to deliver new products to market.”Related: The 15 Best Freelance Websites to Find JobsCryptocurrency and blockchain are steadily filtering into the mainstreamEven though cryptocurrency is by its nature intangible, the hype and frenzy around it has prompted venture capitalists to invest a fair amount of cold, hard cash into companies who are working on the development and integration of Blockchain, a distributed ledger platform (DTL) that verifies and records transactions, like with Bitcoin.According to CB Insights, a firm that predicts tech trends, since 2012, there have been more than 650 equity deals made with blockchain companies, investments totaling more than $2.1 billion. As of October 2017, 95 active VCs had at least one blockchain investment and be the end of the year, that number is expected to reach 120.“[Bitcoin payment] acceptance by retailers is still relatively low. But major businesses, like Overstock, Dish Network, Microsoft, Intuit and PayPal have all integrated Bitcoin payments into their services,” says Pearson, who notes that the adoption of the technology by these stalwarts leads the way for a larger trend across the retail industry. “A lot of times when [retailers] are doing prototyping or feasibility [testing], they will hire freelancers in order to see how it would work.”Bitcoin has certainly captured notoriety and public fascination, and while one Bitcoin is currently equivalent to $7,759.98, it is the Blockchain technology that is being hailed as a game changer in the way we do things. Many businesses are still in the experimentation and testing stage on how to best use and integrate distributed ledger technology into their practices.What’s evident is that like with any rapidly growing technology, the skills related to building, maintaining and working with those systems are in short shrift, so possessing these skills will lead to more opportunities for work across a variety of industries, freelance or full-time. The Financial Times reports that blockchain related advertisements have tripled on LinkedIn over the past year.Related: These Are the Best Cities to Be Your Own BossFor companies on high alert, information security is in high demand.Cybersecurity is another valuable area where skills are urgently needed. Security breaches, such as the ones that have happened to Yahoo and Equifax, are growing increasingly commonplace, and consumers are demanding companies do a better job at their protection.Skills, such as penetration assessment, which comes in at number four on Upwork’s list of fasting growing skills, is how you test the vulnerability of a system’s infrastructure to potential hackers. The researchers cited the U.S. State of Cybercrime 2017 survey, which found that 36 percent of businesses reported being affected by a phishing attack in 2016, compared to 26 percent in 2015.“The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the rate of growth for jobs in information security for 2014 to 2024 is going to be at 18 percent, which is the fastest of all occupations,” notes Pearson. He explained that the most frequent use case that Upwork sees is when a company is testing out a specific cybersecurity issue that they know or suspect is occurring, and they are able to develop solutions and coverage at a much faster pace by accessing a market of freelancers, unhindered by the talents’ location.Related: Three Ways to Launch (or Become) a Remote CompanyEvery business is (or should be) using A.I.The study also cited that global spending on robotics is projected to more than double from $91.5 billion in 2016 to more than $188 billion in 2020. This means the skills in demand will be related to augmented reality and machine learning, thanks to A.I.’s broader adoption across industries, particularly in the automobile industry. These days, it’s become standard for businesses, from airlines to hotels to banks, to employ chatbots to provide 24/7 customer service. According to UBS, the A.I. industry is expected to rocket from a $5 billion in revenues in 2015 to more than double the revenue at $12.5 billion in 2020.Pearson noted that A.I. adoption is driving a demand for freelancers that have a facility with deep learning, natural language processing and machine learning skills. In particular, he says that those three experienced more than a 150 percent year-over-year growth in in the third quarter of the year. Skills like neural networks and image processing have also seen high growth. “A.I. [is] a way to look at different types of objects and identify them quickly, label them and then build a logic off of them,” explains Pearson.For anyone who wants to remain relevant in the job market, being a freelancer with a learning mindset is key, regardless of your field. The coding and programming skills being taught in universities today will be out of date a few years from now, so even the technology-minded are being challenged to keep updating their skills. Blockchain, AR and AI are all breaking new ground, but what technology really does is force us to be nimble.What new skills are you learning right now? Let us know in the comments.
