|Description||Problems in public procurement for the reconstruction of public lighting in Ilava are bigger than they expected. ILAVA. At the August session of the council, the City of Deputies informed about the cancellation of public procurement for the reconstruction of lighting. Implementation dates are unrealistic. Increase in July and deadlines At the session of the council in early July, Mayor Ilavy Štefan Dasko warned that there were difficulties in public procurement for the reconstruction of lighting. MEPs then approved an increase in the budget so that the city could do it. In the capital expenditure, the city was initially reimbursed by the deputies approved for the reconstruction of the lighting, initially EUR 20,000, after the July summit increased by EUR 360,000. The mayors field is sufficient for the first stage. The funds for the implementation of lighting reconstruction in the budget allocated are. With the realization they wanted to start at the end of the summer this year. However, the condition was that the procurement process must not be stretched. The work could be handled by the mayor of the city in three months. "If work started in August, by the end of October, early November, we could manage the lighting reconstruction," Dasko said in July. repeal At the August session of the council, however, Peter Proszczuk, head of the financial and property department of the city, announced the cancellation of the public lighting reconstruction tender, according to the decision of the Public Procurement Authority. He was interested in the reasons Vladimir Bagin, the deputy, was wondering why the contest was canceled. She remembered she was the second and did not go. He wanted to know why. "There were two objections from two contestants. They remembered several things, the office examined them. In some people he was right about the city and the others, "explained Stanislav Janušek, head of the Department of Construction and Environment of the City Authority. He added that it is clear from the OPIs statement that the city will cancel the competition, which it will do. Bagin recalled that the deputies were undergoing the reconstruction of the lighting and that the contracting authority did not manage to compete, which is not their fault. He says the law limits them Yanukovych responded that the companies involved in the competition are legally entitled to react and the law is in many ways hurt. "They are being denied some tools that they want to achieve the quality of the work," he added. Problems with the procurement are not only the leader, but also the region when selecting a contractor for the reconstruction of the Ilave Canal Bridge. He also recalled the preparation of the amendment to the law. "It is absurd that the buyer could not choose what he needs," added Yanukovych. Baghin responded that he did not have to look for a bug in the state. "The city is supposed to choose a procurement contractor to prepare the documents so they can go for the first time," he said. Head of Yanukovych said that they have long years of this contractor for public procurement and were not problems. It has also set limits that it sees as problematic in procurement and which may affect the final quality of the work. "We can not even ask the candidates for functional samples so we can verify that the lights they want to deliver are in the parameters proposed by the designer. We also have to explain why we want to declare eight employees from the company for three years, "he said. He added that they needed to verify or not the clipboard business. "It would probably not be very good with quality. Previously, we also had such conditions, and we went through it, "he said.|

|Description||The central figure of police intervention in hospitals and companies is the North Bohemian entrepreneur Tomáš Horácek, connected to HTS Corporate Group. These companies also have "mailbox" companies. Both hospitals and VZP still bought them for hundreds of millions of crowns. Companies only had a virtual seat, no employees, or a website. Public contracts from these companies were up to a third overpriced. "Some companies in the HTS Group Group were prominent in the amount of orders they had received in the health care even though they showed signs of typical clipboard companies," said Milan Eibl, an analyst at Transparency International, for Aktuálne.cz. Aktuálne.cz: What do you think are untrustworthy companies from the HTS Corporate Group portfolio? Milan Eibl: Some of them originated as so-called ready-made companies, without any background, based on virtual addresses. Such small and opaque companies soon began buying healthcare orders for hundreds of millions of crowns. This is not the common practice of serious companies. What do you think are the links of the entrepreneur Tomáš Horácek to the HTS Corporate Group, in which the police intervened on Friday? Tomáš Horácek is not officially registered in this companys business register, but is connected with this company. His First Protected Workshop is a part of the HTS Corporate Group and he himself performed for some companies in the group. A network of interconnected companies around Tomáš Horácek is quite extensive. We found out that the orders of companies connected to Tomáš Horácek were up to one-third more expensive in some hospitals - for example, the purchase of the operating table from the Tender Consortium subsidiary went to FN Brno up to a third of the groove than in hospitals that were purchasing directly from the manufacturer. A 40-million-year-old tender last spring was entrusted to VZP, for which it was supposed to arrange for the printing of promotional materials. When the editorial board asked VZP why this contract was entrusted to an obviously untrustworthy firm, she only replied that the firm had met all the tender conditions. Has VZP proceeded correctly? In that case, the tender conditions were probably not well set. If the contracting authority pays public contracts for tens of millions of crowns, he should more thoroughly verify to what extent the supplier is a reliable partner, and to what extent he / she is exposed to risks, whether in terms of conflict of interest or ability to fulfill the engagement.|

|Description||September each year is the time for tech lovers to converge upon Berlin, where the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) show happens. It's one of a handful of tech shows that are still important, but sadly, much of its thunder is stolen earlier in the year by the Consumer Electronics Show and the Mobile World Congress. All the same, if there's nothing life-changingly new at IFA, there are product evolutions that are no less interesting...
Lenovo's Yoga Book
The talk of the IFA show is Lenovo's Yoga Book, what the company calls a 'two-in-one tablet'. One part is a tablet as we know it, except that it comes in either an Android of Windows flavour. But the more fascinating part is a digital panel attached to the tablet with a strong hinge. It's this panel that adds functionality to what might have otherwise been a regular tablet.
The matte black panel of the Yoga Book doubles up as a writing or drawing pad, like the Wacom tablet used by designers for precision drawing. You pick up the Real Pen, the stylus provided, and go ahead and hand-write. The writing will convert to text and appear on the tablet portion. You can also draw and watch your creation on the screen. You also get, in the box, a magnetic clipboard on which you can use paper and an ink pen to write, in the regular way, on the panel. This too is digitised.
And that's not all, the panel triples up as a keyboard. On demand, you can call up a virtual but backlit keyboard, adequately sized and compete with a touchpad.
Haptic feedback makes it easier to type on what is after all, a flat surface. And in effect, you have a notebook, tablet and drawing pad all in one gadget.
Sony's Xperia Agent
Among the products showcased by Sony, there was one that warmed the cockles of many a heart: a prototype home robot called Xperia Agent with a built-in voice assistant. The robot, with eyes that dance when the music is on, is a smart home hub and talks to the coffee machine, television, music system, and other gadgets. You can pat its head to order up a cup of coffee and collect it from the machine.
Rather than being extremely useful, the Xperia Agent is just a concept at this stage and shows a glimpse of what home robots could be like one day.
LG's Tunnel of TVs
Two hundred and sixteen 55-inch curved televisions made up a tunnel that visitors at IFA were reluctant to leave. LG played a loop of psychedelic visuals on the display, enveloping awestruck viewers in a magical dream-like spell. While nothing like the TV tunnel will make it to homes, the display shows how immersive curved TVs can be.
Hasselblad True Camera
Earlier this year, Lenovo launched the Moto Z, a device that takes on modules for added functionality. The Hasselblad Moto Mod is an add-on attachment that clamps on, magnetically, to the Moto Z and its variants. It brings 10x optical zoom, a Xenon flash, and the ability to shoot in RAW format. It turns the phone into a camera that even looks like a camera. The add-on costs a whole $300 though, probably making sure most people give it a miss.
LG's Instaview Fridge
LG hasn't reviewed any phones and wearables, but the other Korean giant has something besides its mesmerising TV tunnel. The Door-in-Door Instaview Signature refrigerator was debuted at an earlier show but now has a surprise.
First of all it's an enormous fridge and you can knock-knock on the door to have a good look inside without opening it. Also, on the door, a screen turns into a tablet, letting you drag and drop information on the food items, such as expiry date. But the surprise is that it's going to be available with complete Windows and Cortana, Microsoft's virtual assistant.
As IFA draws to a close, there will probably be more interesting tech coming to light, some of which will remain at the concept stage and some of which will be available to buy.

|Description||Microsoft today announced Cache, its newest Garage project. The idea is to allow you to "bookmark the stuff important to you." This "stuff" will sync between all of your devices, starting with your iPhone and Windows PC.
You can use Cache to grab "text snippets, images, web pages, files, reference material, and your notes". You'll also be able to create groups, which will allow you to organize said stuff by "projects, clients, tasks, or ideas".
And of course, all of that content will be available across your devices. It's similar in functionality to OneClip, which was meant to be a digital clipboard across devices.
This is the latest of many apps to come out of Microsoft Garage. The group is also responsible for bringing the Word Flow keyboard to iOS, the Arrow Launcher to Android, and much, much more. You can check out the Microsoft Garage website to learn more about its projects. You'll need to sign in with a Microsoft account, because for some reason it thinks that you're accessing sensitive information.
