By Dialogo November 10, 2009 Uruguay has a level of development in the software industry that puts it “on top” in the region as far as “value and volume of exports” and also in “quality and innovation,” the head of the Delegation of the European Commission to Uruguay and Paraguay, Geoffrey Barrett, said. Barrett so expressed himself at the inauguration of the Software Testing Center (CES), a project for technology evaluation in which the EU has invested one million “non-reimbursable and non-debt-generating” euros. From 2004 through 2008 the EU participated in this pioneer industry in Uruguay through the Enlaces project, through which the EU contributed another million euros and which left “the EU highly satisfied,” according to the community representative. That previous project “succeeded in bringing a measure of order to the dizzying growth of the software industry” and was the reason for the creation of INNOVA, the project that the European block is financing and the National Agency for Research and Innovation is administering, Barrett added. The community representative indicated that Uruguay doubled its software exports in less than a decade and that foreign sales were around 220 million dollars in 2008, adding at the same time that “it’s not crazy” to think that this figure might exceed 400 million dollars in 2010. “The appropriate decisions were taken at the right time, and valuable personnel were brought in from abroad, who trained very capable people in this country, and they in their turn left and came back with new knowledge,” Barrett recalled that a businessman in the sector explained to him shortly after his arrival in Montevideo. The CES is a consortium made up of the Uruguayan Information Technology Chamber (Cuti), the Computer Science Institute of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of the Republic, and the Julio Ricaldoni Foundation. Cuti’s president, Alvaro Lamé, emphasized to EFE that Uruguay is the “third-ranking Latin American country in per-capita software exports.” Lamé explained that the center will be dedicated to “consulting about testing, independent testing, and training,” which entails a “mechanism for evaluation and improvement.” The convergence between industry and the academy in the CES will attempt to “contribute quality, value, and productivity to businesses in order to achieve improved positioning and profits in the sector,” in Lamé’s judgment.
By Greg AregoniFRANCIS CREEK, Wis. – With 146 cars jam packing the pits Saturday night at 141 Speedway, racing was the real deal with hard-fought races just to make the feature events. The IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modifieds have had a stacked field all year long and Benji LaCrosse finally notched his belt with a win. Many drivers with multiple feature wins sat on their trailers to watch the Modified main. Mike Wedelstadt opened as the leader with R.M. VanPay running second. A couple early cautions kept the field on the back bumper of the leader.LaCrosse started 12th and charged his way through the field. A final caution allowed Johnny Whitman to join the fun up front with eight laps to go. VanPay used a great restart to get around both LaCrosse and Wedelstadt for the lead. LaCrosse shot into second with Whitman right behind. LaCrosse was the first to catch VanPay and made his move outside with six laps remaining. LaCrosse evened up with VanPay and used the momentum from the top of the track to drive to victory. LaCrosse picked up his first win of the season with Whitman securing second over VanPay late in the race. Mike Mullen came back from an opening lap incident and beat Wedelstadt to the checkered flag for fourth.Other winners included John Heinz in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, J.J. Anderson in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods, Charlie Sancinati in the Grand Nationals, Jerry Winkler in the Street Stocks and Matt Brehmer in the 4 Cylinders.Heinz grabbed the lead with eight laps left and held off Rod Snellenberger for the Stock Car checkers.
