The U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 establishes a new system to responsibly manage and secure our border, keep our families and communities safe, and better manage migration across the Hemisphere. President Biden is sending a bill to Congress on day one to restore humanity and American values to our immigration system. The bill provides hardworking people who enrich our communities every day and who have lived here for years , in some cases for decades, an opportunity to earn citizenship.

Projects in construction may vary based on their size, the number of stakeholders involved, budget and delivery date. Regardless of the case, though, a construction project is always a long and demanding process. The good news is that with the continuous progress of digital solutions, the management of the different project phases can now be done much easier and with higher precision. On top of that, the collection of valuable data from the field can play a decisive role in improving, and ideally, standardising the construction process for future projects .

From Freeport to UNESCO World Heritage

until the beginning of 2013, fences separated the area of ​​the former freezer from the city center of Hamburg. For more than 100 years, the Speicherstadt had been customs abroad. The companies in the free port had to pay for introduced goods no taxes and tariffs. They could store, edit and re-execute the goods. That was a precious privilege in the 19th century. The breakdown of the fences and the reorganization of customs controls allowed the integration of Hafencity, Speicherstadt and Historic Old Town.

Andrew Cuomo boasts of making the Empire State a "global wind energy manufacturing powerhouse." His New Jersey counterpart, fellow Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy, dreams of making his state the "national capital" for offshore wind. And Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, is banking on an offshore wind boom capable of powering his state's net-zero climate ambitions.

2020 may also be the year where robotics makes a bigger impact in the construction industry. Somewhat linked to the impact of 3D printing above, robotics is also seeing impressive infiltration into the industry. Optimized energy efficiency and a drive for low to zero carbon emissions have driven innovation in building construction and service design for years . In response, new, better thermal performance materials are being developed that promise to make the buildings of the future incredibly well insulated for a fraction of the cost of current solutions.

Abstract: Object detection, as of one the most fundamental and challenging problems in computer vision, has received great attention in recent years . Its development in the past two decades can be regarded as an epitome of computer vision history. If we think of today's object detection as a technical aesthetics under the power of deep learning, then turning back the clock 20 This paper also reviews some important detection applications, such as pedestrian detection, face detection, text detection, etc, and makes an in-deep analysis of their challenges as well as technical improvements in recent years .

The highest Tower Hamburg and a new place

Another attraction is likely to become the 245 meter high ELBTOWER, which should be built immediately next to the Elbbrücken from this spring. The skyscraper should be done in 2025 and with 61 floors the highest building of Hamburg.
