CRA Website Error Puts CRB Applications on Hold

October 12, 2020 | website | No Comments

It seems like the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Thanksgiving surprise was not that good. Canadians are flocking on to Twitter and other social media sites to discuss the error message on the CRA website. Today, the CRA opened the application window for the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB). Millions of Canadians logged in only to be disappointed with a message.

The message read, “You cannot apply for the Canada Recovery Benefit as you have applied for all eligible periods. The next periods become available every second Monday.”

And today being Thanksgiving, the CRA contact centre is closed. So, I guess you will have to wait until Tuesday to apply for the CRB.

The CRA had less than a month to transition millions of Canadians from the Canada Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) to CRB. Also, it had to implement new sickness and caregiving benefits. To

In a computer-driven era, adopting or learning new software can be taxing and time consuming. On an individual level, a simple click on YouTube tutorials or calling up a friend who is proficient with the software can do the trick. However, for enterprises with thousands of employees, the situation to deal with a new software or facing an error is expensive and not welcomed. Customer relationship management (CRM) software used by enterprises across sectors to onboard new customers can be onerous to use.

Understanding this pain, Khadim Batti and Vara Kumar in 2013 founded a SaaS-based solution provider startup Whatfix. Based in Bengaluru, the startup in February this year raised $32 million in Series C round from Sequoia Capital.

In an interaction with Entrepreneur India, Batti, chief executive officer and co-founder of Whatfix,

Imagine being able to embark on a real-time computer vision project in a few hours, with no code to build a traffic control system, a warehouse monitoring system, or an in-store point of sale optimization system. Like the apps that are built on top of smartphone operating systems, these smart computer vision projects can use a multitude of proprietary and vendor algorithms. Because they are built on top of BrainFrame, an operating system for computer vision that comes with a Smart Vision AI Developers Kit, they take a fraction of the time to build than other computer vision projects.

BrainFrame is one of the core products of Aotu.ai, started by two founders, Stephen Li and Alex Thiel. Stephen applied his experience building out the Android operating system to BrainFrame. In collaboration with leading chipmakers such as Intel, Nvidia, etc., BrainFrame is positioning itself to

Aviation

GPS technology is now very much prevalent in commercial aviation. Most commercial jetliners now increasingly employ GPS navigation for initial and non-precision approach to specified airfields. The Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADB-B) is the futuristic primary guidance and navigational GPS technology for which a substantial amount of research, development and investments are being poured in. The ADB-B technology also involves direct inter-aircraft communication within a pre-defined radial proximity wherein it enables the aircraft to inter-communicate their relative speeds, distances, flight paths and locations. The development of this technology is not confined to any one country but is being developed globally through strategic technological multi-lateral alliances. Besides its use in commercial aviation, the GPS ADB-B technology is also being employed in the navigation Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The UAV’s are primarily used for resource mapping and air surveillance imaging – a task that was previously tasked to earth orbiting … Read More
