METIS and Spire Global team to improve weather forecast - ShipInsight

METIS Cyberspace Technology has signed an agreement with global data and analytics expert Spire Global to provide highly accurate weather forecasting services to enhance existing weather-related functionality available for the METIS data acquisition and analytics platform.

Through a combination of terrestrial and satellite data, Spire provides insights into weather patterns in every layer of Earth’s atmosphere and across its surface — even in remote parts of the ocean where the elements are notoriously difficult to predict. It will be the fourth weather provider to contribute to the METIS cloud-based platform.

“A critical part of our strategy is to establish an open platform where our solutions connect with those of third-party vendors to bring added value to customers,” said Andreas Symeonidis, Marketing Manager, METIS Cyberspace Technology. “As a final example of this approach, our partnership with Spire gives us complete global weather coverage with no blind spots, enabling us to anticipate all eventualities and deliver our most accurate weather-based services to date.”

METIS receives a 10-day forecast for the entire global network, with an update frequency of one to six hours. The data packet contains atmospheric data such as temperature and wind speed; maritime data, ie ocean currents and base wave heights; and wave-specific data with detailed insights about waves and swell. Based on this information, the Athens-based company will improve its weather routing and speed profiling capabilities, as well as its ability to provide proactive weather alerts. Customers will therefore benefit from safer and more efficient navigation – and, by optimizing speed, can ensure on-time arrival at port while reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

“The interaction between our platform and Spire’s is extremely fast and efficient, meaning we can reduce the time it takes to complete each request and perform complex multi-path analytics,” continued Symeonidis. “This flexibility allows us to refine our existing services and – more importantly – develop new and highly specialized services.”

The recently enhanced weather services of the METIS platform are the latest addition to a continuously growing portfolio of solutions designed to address specific challenges within the maritime industry and support smart, safe and sustainable operations. Earlier this year, the data analytics specialist launched the Predictive AER Emissions INDEX, the industry’s first solution of its kind, to help shipowners keep pace with annual efficiency ratio (AER) and related regulations.

San Francisco restaurant receives negative reviews after asking cops to leave

A San Francisco restaurant was hit by a spate of negative reviews after it made headlines for asking uniformed police officers to leave because the presence of guns made staff uncomfortable.

Hilda and Jesse, a breakfast restaurant in the city’s North Beach neighborhood, sat down with three uniformed officers on Friday, but said the staff felt uneasy about the presence of “multiple weapons” shortly afterwards.

The restaurant’s Instagram page said this was not a political decision and was made in the best interests of their staff.

“We respect the San Francisco Police Department and are grateful for the work they are doing,” the statement said on social media. “We welcome them to the restaurant when they are off duty, without uniforms and without their weapons.”

The restaurant owners also met with officers at the department’s main station on Saturday to discuss the incident. according to NBC Bay Area.

A deluge of negative 1-star reviews hit the Hilda and Jesse Yelp page this weekend.

“Refuting law enforcement because they were in uniform is all I need to know about this place,” said one review. “Will never step foot in there. Definitely DO NOT call the police if you get robbed!! Don’t be hypocrites!!”

Another review wrote: “What’s wrong with you? Looking forward to your bankruptcy. You are a disgrace. Throw the cops out????”

Sunday morning, the restaurant page had a 1-star rating with over 460 reviews.

San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott spoke on the matter on Saturday in a series of tweets. Scott said the department stands for “safety with respect,” even if the officers find someone else’s wishes “personally disappointing.”

“I believe the vast majority of San Franciscans welcome their police officers, who deserve to know that they are appreciated for the difficult work we ask them to do – in their uniforms – to keep our neighborhoods and businesses safe,” added Scott.

3. Miss Ellie’s Cafe – Southampton

Another five out of five reviews, this time from 178 reviewers. But it’s a complete contrast in price range to Spices and Spirits, with prices between £2 and £6.
