If companies could hand off their mundane administrative tasks to software robots, employees could focus on higher-level work. That’s Blue Prism’s pitch, and an increasing number of companies—in finance, health care, law, and other industries—are receptive. Blue Prism’s “Robotic Process Automation” software mimics the way humans complete rules-based tasks, such as manually entering data from a paper form into a database. The U.K.-based firm recently expanded its U.S. and Australian operations and signed partnerships with Accenture and IBM. It is currently worth about 500 million pounds, a tenfold increase in value since it went public in March 2016.

Killexams : Blue Book: What it is, How it Works, Effect

What Is a Blue Book?

The Blue Book or Kelley Blue Book is a guidebook that compiles and quotes prices for new and used automobiles and other vehicles of all makes, models, and types. First published in 1926 by Los Angeles car dealer Les Kelley, the Blue Book was originally only available to those in the automotive industry, but both a consumer edition and an online edition was made available in the 1990s for the general public. The Blue Book provides a fair market range reflecting an estimated range of prices car buyers will pay for a specific car based on make, model, style, and year.

Key Takeaways

  • The Blue Book, also known as the Kelley Blue Book, is a popular and trusted guide for automotive price quotes in North America.
  • Blue Books show car buyers and sellers what prices others have paid to acquire vehicles of the same make, model, year, and comparable mileage and use.
  • The Blue Book analyzes the private party value, trade-in value, suggested retail value, certified pre-owned (CPO) value, and many other prices for used cars.
  • Blue Books can also help car buyers determine the potential future costs of car ownership, such as the costs of fuel, maintenance, repairs, and insurance.

Understanding the Blue Book

Blue Book has become the premier appraisal guide for vehicle price quotes in North America. Car sellers and car buyers will consult the Blue Book to determine the resale value of used cars. Kelley Blue Book also provides an real cash value for vehicles. This can be used to check your insurance company's valuation should you get in a wreck, and potentially negotiate with them.

The Blue Book analyzes the private party value, trade-in value, suggested retail value, and certified pre-owned (CPO) value for used cars. The new car Blue Book shows what consumers are currently paying for new cars.

Over the decades, Blue Book pricing guides have been published for a variety of markets—including guides for motorcycles, travel trailers, campers, ATVs, snowmobiles, and manufactured housing.

How Blue Books Are Used

Blue Books show buyers and sellers of automobiles what prices others have paid—the so-called fair purchase price—to acquire vehicles of the same make, model, year, and comparable mileage and use. Furthermore, Blue Books can detail the anticipated costs associated with a vehicle such as fuel, maintenance, repairs, insurance, and financing, along with the anticipated depreciation of its value over time. That way, buyers can see the potential cost to own the vehicle five years out from the date it is acquired.

How the Blue Book Determines Car Prices

The fair purchase price listed in the Blue Book is established to show the price other consumers typically pay for the same vehicle. These prices are adjusted based on the region where the transactions take place from new-vehicle purchases that occur across the country. The prices are adjusted on a recurring basis to account for changes in market conditions.

The Blue Book does not show the lowest prices paid in the market for vehicles, but rather the going price that a vehicle currently sells for. The prices in the Blue Book are set by gathering data on thousands of consumer vehicle purchase prices. This is coupled with data taken from national vehicle registration databases. Kelley Blue Book reviews the aggregate information each week. The company uses a proprietary algorithm to analyze pricing data, historical trends, location, time of year, and economic conditions to come up with the value ranges it compiles in the Blue Book.

Special Considerations

Originated by the Kelley Blue Book Company, which was acquired by and Cox Automotive, the guidebook is not to be confused with other titles referred to as “blue books,” such as the Social Security Blue Book that lists disabling impairments.

In addition to the Blue Book, there are several other resources car buyers and sellers can consult to research car pricing. J.D. Power and Consumer Reports both offer consumers a variety of resources, including data on new car prices, used car book value, and vehicle history reports. For those planning to rely on a loan for financing a vehicle purchase, an auto loan calculator is another tool worth adding to their arsenal.

Killexams : aGLIFF’s PRISM 36 Film Festival Set For August 23-27

Austin’s oldest film festival and premiere LGBTQ+ film fest of the Southwest, aGLIFF announces the Opening Night and five additional films for the 36th annual festival PRISM 36 taking place in-person August 23–27, 2023 in Austin, TX. The annual event will celebrate in-person throughout the vibrant city of Austin with screenings, events, Q&As and more. More information on the festival can be found at

Kicking off the festival and offering something for everyone is Glitter & Doom, a jukebox musical featuring the iconic music of the Grammy®-Award winning Indigo Girls. This fantastical romance follows a musician who uses charisma as his guise and a happy-go-lucky kid about to run away to the circus, when they fall in love at first sight in this musical delight starring Alex Diaz, Alan Cammish, Missy Pyle, Ming-Na Wen, Tig Notaro, Peppermint, and Beth Malone with cameo roles from icons Lea DeLaria and Indigo Girls’ Amy Ray and Emily Saliers.

“I’m excited to kick off PRISM 36 with Glitter & Doom, a bold, queer vision full of music, dance and imagery, capturing all the possibilities of film,” said Artistic Director Bears Rebecca Fonté, “Like most musicals, the songs are the language of love, and great love demands great songs. The Indigo Girls have given us so many great songs over the years, but now director Tom Gustafson has reimagined them with all the pizazz of Moulin Rouge to turn even beloved classics into something unexpected.”

Named the 2022 Nonprofit of the Year by the Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce, aGLIFF cultivates the Texas LGBTQ+ community by enlightening, educating, and entertaining moviegoers through programs that enrich LGBTQ+ and ally communities while developing LGBTQ+ awareness. The nonprofit organization’s programs include Community Partnership Programs, “Queer Spectrum” Monthly Screening Series, and the Queer Black Voices Fund, all of which culminate around its annual film festival, PRISM.

“Our theme this year is ‘Find Your Friends at aGLIFF’s PRISM 36.’ We felt like going back to our roots as a gathering space for Austin LGBTQ+ individuals is more important than ever,” said aGLIFF Board President Todd Hogan. “While we’ve made significant progress politically over the past 36 years, recent legislative attacks on our transgender family and drag community threaten everyone’s right to live and love freely as humans. We believe in the universal language of film, which helps people discover shared humanity. As we continue to confront institutional bias, we are more driven than ever to educate both within and outside our LGBTQ+ community through powerful stories captured on film. We believe there is power in coming together to share our stories and celebrate our diversity. aGLIFF’s PRISM Film Festival can do that and we invite everyone to join us to catch up with old friends and meet some new friends in the process.”

For PRISM 36, aGLIFF will additionally offer a virtual component August 28 – September 4, 2023, after the in-person festival has concluded. The PRISM 36 virtual festival will not be a full line up but will include select titles playing in-person.

More information about the PRISM 36 festival will be announced over the coming weeks.

Director: Tom Gustafson |Writer: Cory Krueckberg |Cast: Alex DiazAlan CammishMing-Na WenMissi PyleTig NotaroPeppermintBeth MaloneKate Pierson

Set to the tunes of queer icons the Indigo Girls (who make cameos as well), this whirlwind musical tale between a dour young emo singer-songwriter (Cammish) and the impulsive circus dreamer Glitter (Diaz) explodes from the streets of Mexico City like a big sparkly, rainbow firework. With both boys struggling to make it to stardom despite their meddling mothers and the distractions of a surreal Baz Luhrmann-like cityscape, there’s no need to ‘Get Out the Map’ to romance, at aGLIFF’s opening night, ‘Love Will Come to You.’


1946: A Mistranslation that Changed Culture | US | 2022 | 92 minutes | English | Southwest Premiere

Director: Sharon “Rocky” Roggio |Screenwriters: Jena Serbu, Jill Woodword |Featuring: Cheryl AndersonKathy BaldockSteve Greenberg

A conservative Christian woman who cannot reconcile the church’s teachings and her new lesbian friend who doesn’t seem at all like a filthy evil sinner, searches for reasons behind the homophobia in the modern church. Deep in the archives of the translation team of the Revised Standard Edition of the bible, she finds her answer, and even more mystery.

Chasing Chasing Amy | US | 2023 | 95 minutes | English | Southwest Premiere

Director and Writer: Sav Rodgers |Featuring: Kevin Smith, Joey Lauren Adams, Guinevere Turner, Andrew Ahn

Trans filmmaker Sav Rodgers delves into the film that first introduced him to the LGBTQ world – Chasing Amy – despite its problematic place in the queer cannon and its very cis-het creator, Comic Book Bro Kevin Smith. Making a pilgrimage to the locations of the 1997 film with his girlfriend, Rodgers searches to understand and express why this film has meant so much to him on his journey.

Kenyatta: Do Not Wait Your Turn | US | 2023 | 94 minutes | English | Southwest Premiere

Director: Timothy Harris |Executive Producer: Al Roker |Featuring: Malcolm Kenyatta, Matthew Jordan-Miller Kenyatta

The most important senate race in 2022, Pennsylvania, began with a primary that cut ‘straight’ to the core of what it means to be electable in America. Malcolm Kenyatta, a self-described “poor, Black, and gay kid from North Philly,” runs into the wall of two hundred plus years of Pennsylvanian history of only sending white (and straight) men to the US Senate.

Lie With Me | France | 2022 | 98 minutes | French | Southwest Premiere

About aGLIFF:

Founded in 1987 aGLIFF is Austin’s oldest film festival and became a 501(c)3 in 1995. The festival began as a four-day event with just four films primarily focused on coming out and the AIDS epidemic. It has grown into a multifaceted nonprofit organization with year-round community programs and events culminating each year in the annual film festival. Originally named the Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival (1987) the organization changed its name in 2018 to All Genders, Lifestyles, and Identities Film Festival to reflect the changing landscape of how queer people identify, and as of 2020 now goes by simply aGLIFF. In 2019, the Board of Directors selected PRISM as the festival theme to highlight the way the festival can refract a single beam of art into multiple viewpoints, showcasing all the voices in the spectrum of our LGBTQIA+ community through film.

The organization’s mission is to create positive and visible film programs relevant to the lives of LGBTQIA+ identified people, to educate the community about LGBTQIA+ issues, to produce and promote the best in LGBTQIA+ community building events, and to support and partner with other organizations to enlighten the public.

Killexams : Riyad Bank Chooses SS&C Blue Prism to Boost Customer Experience and Operational Excellence

Saudi Arabia's Riyad Bank accelerates operational transformation by automating 200 processes with SS&C Blue Prism intelligent automation platform

WINDSOR, Conn., Aug. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- SS&C Technologies Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSNC) today announced Riyad Bank, one of the largest financial institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Middle East, has successfully transitioned its automation program to SS&C Blue Prism. The bank sought to upgrade its automation solution to support three main business objectives: customer experience, innovation and performance culture.

"We've been able to transform operations at great scale in a very short timeframe due to the unrivalled support from SS&C Blue Prism and our capabilities in Riyad Bank," said Abdulrahman Al-Huthail, EVP Operations, Riyad Bank. "With greater automation infrastructure, pipeline and delivery, Riyad Bank's workforce is now fully invested in intelligent automation due to the benefits it has seen over the past six months. We are excited about what transformational results we can achieve next."

So far, the Bank has implemented automation across eight areas of operations, including corporate payment operations, ATM and cash management, consumer finance operations, retail operations, governance, and operational excellence.

Throughout the six months, SS&C Blue Prism digital workers have:

  • Handled up to 200 processes across eight areas of operations.
  • Returned more than 150,000 hours to the business, providing time for more innovation, an opportunity to better serve its customers, and a better working environment for its employees.

Among improvements, Riyad Bank is benefitting from intelligent automation in the end-of-day transaction handling for bank tellers. Previously, bank tellers were preparing the customers transfer of check and cash deposit forms manually. The manual process meant more time and resources had to be allocated to complete these transactions by end-of-day. The automation team worked with the business unit on nine processes, which reduced processing time from 240 seconds to 45 seconds (81%) per document. The automation improved working conditions for team members and enabled them to concentrate on higher-value tasks.

"The results Riyad Bank has achieved in just six months demonstrate the significant transformational value automation can bring when you have right culture and support in place," said Jerry Hubbard, General Manager, EMEA, SS&C Blue Prism. "Alongside SS&C Blue Prism's trusted partner, we're excited to see how Riyad Bank continues to take its organization forward while benefitting its employees and customers."

More than 2,800 customers worldwide run their operations on SS&C Blue Prism, digitizing operations across financial services, insurance, health and pharma, banking, and more.

Killexams : Are Kelley Blue Book Values Accurate and Reliable?

When buying or selling a used car, many people rely on the Kelley Blue Book (KBB), which has been around since 1926. One sign of its popularity: In 2017, over 20 million unique visitors per month visited the Kelley Blue Book website, today the number is likely even higher.

Although automotive experts acknowledge that the Kelley Blue Book is one of the most popular and trusted guides in automotive pricing, the question remains: Is it accurate and reliable? Here’s a look at how Kelley determines car pricing, an assessment of some issues consumers might encounter with KBB pricing, and a brief review of some of the top competitors in the industry.

Key Takeaways

  • The Kelley Blue Book—and its equally popular website—is one of the most trusted guides for automobile pricing, used by those who are buying or selling cars.
  • Kelley assesses a wide array of different values to both used and new vehicles. For used vehicles some of them include: Trade-in value, typical listing price, fair purchasing price (CPO), and private party.
  • Kelley determines Blue Book values by analyzing pricing information from real-world used car prices, as well as industry developments, economic conditions, and location.
  • Potential problems with Blue Book values include a delay as price information is assessed, the consumer tendency to overrate the value of the car they are selling or trading in, and a mismatch between wholesale values listed by Kelley and the prices used by dealers, who access special industry-only pricing info.

How Kelley Blue Book Determines Car Values

Kelley Blue Book receives real-world used car prices from wholesale auctions, independent and franchised dealers, rental fleets, auto manufacturers, lessors, and private party transactions. Using this data, they make weekly updates to prices.

Kelley’s proprietary algorithm analyzes pricing data along with historical trends, current economic conditions, industry developments, time of year, and location to determine Kelley Blue Book values.

That process results in 12 different used car values, in addition to several new car values. Some of the most crucial used car values are:

  • Private-party value: The starting point for a negotiation between a private buyer and seller for "as is" sales.
  • Trade-in value: The amount you are likely to get from a dealer for a trade-in.
  • Typical listing price: Represents what dealers are typically asking for the used car.
  • Fair purchase price (CPO): The price consumers may reasonably expect to pay for a certified pre owned car of this year, make, and model.

Some Issues With KBB Pricing

Some factors that could affect the accuracy of KBB values are lag time, consumer bias, and mismatched data.

Lag Time

It takes time for data and analysis to make its way through KBB. Prices listed may not always reflect the very latest trends and economic conditions.

Consumer Bias

Most people think the car they are selling or trading in is in better condition than it really is. If you misjudge the condition of a car for trade-in or purchase, your expectations may not match the reality of KBB’s valuation structure.

Mismatched Data 

Most dealers do not use KBB for trade-in (wholesale) values. Instead, many rely on National Auto Research’s Black Book or the Manheim Market Report, neither of which is available to the public. More important, both tend to skew lower than KBB in wholesale pricing.


The year Les Kelley, a Los Angeles car dealer, published the first Kelley Blue Book.

Solutions for Consumers

If you use KBB as a general guide and follow the suggestions below, Kelley Blue Book data can be very useful.

Print out Definitions

If negotiating to buy a used car from a private seller, show KBB’s car condition definitions to the seller, especially if you believe the car is priced too high. 


KBB’s pricing structure tends to favor dealers, meaning listed retail prices can be higher than other guides. Start with the listed retail price and bargain down. 

Ask for Sources 

Be aware that insider guides like Manheim or Black Book tend to show lower wholesale prices than KBB. Ask about the source of the trade-in offer or wholesale price.

Consult Other Guides 

Consult one or more other websites or pricing guides to get an “average” for the vehicle you are trading in, selling, or planning to buy.

Since the three main consumer guides—KBB,, and NADA with J.D. Power—use different algorithms, your best bet is to check all three and calculate an average price.

Additional Resources

The following are several sources you can check for pricing and rating information before buying, trading in, or selling a used car.

Edmunds: This website offers an appraisal engine that includes five car condition categories compared with KBB’s four. This can be helpful—or generate confusion—depending on how realistic you are about your car’s condition. Many experts believe Edmunds' values are more accurate than KBB's. That’s not always the case, of course, which is why getting several estimates and averaging still makes the most sense.

NADA with J.D. Power: One of the oldest guides, NADA guides were designed for dealer members of the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) trade group. For consumers, NADA partners with J.D. Power. Their website will lead you to J.D. Power's site where you can research new and used vehicle values by make and body style.

Consumer Reports: The well-respected, noncommercial (no advertising accepted) publication offers lots of information if you buy an online subscription, less if you don’t. The website features general pricing on used cars, information on reliability, cars to avoid, and much more.

The Bottom Line

Kelley Blue Book is a very good resource, but it should not be the only one you consult. Although none of the top used car buying guides is perfect, when taken together—along with additional information gained from other websites and tools, such as auto loan calculators—they can provide reasonably reliable and accurate information for your used car transaction.

Killexams : ‘Red, White & Royal Blue’ Book Vs. Movie: How Director Matthew Lopez Simplified and Strengthened the Story

The Red, White & Royal Blue movie is now streaming on Amazon, which means it’s time for book fans to engage in their favorite activity: Pointing out every little, tiny, pedantic change from the novel! (These fans grew up in the Harry Potter fandom, OK? We can’t help it. This is how we were socialized.)

This best-selling 2019 gay romance novel, by author Casey McQuiston, was adapted for the screen by Matthew Lopez, who directed the film and co-wrote the script with Ted Malawer. Lopez, best known for his Tony-winning Broadway play The Inheritance, has said he was a huge fan of McQuiston’s novel, and it shows. Starring Taylor Zakhar Perez as the son of the American president who falls in love with the Prince of Wales (played by Nicholas Galitzine), the Red, White & Royal Blue delivers on all the hilarious and heart-wrenching moment that made the book so popular.

That said, there were a few significant changes made from the book, for the sake of keeping the movie’s runtime under two hours. Let’s get into it.

Red, White and Royal Blue books vs. movie changes:

The biggest change to the Red, White & Royal Blue movie from the book is that, in the book, Alex has an older sister named June. Unlike Alex, June isn’t interested in pursuing a political career, and she worries that their mother is pressuring Alex to help in her campaign. In the movie, Alex is an only child. Some of June’s storylines were combined with the character named Nora (played by actor Rachel Hilson), like, for example, June’s romance with Henry’s best friend, Pez. But for the most part, June was cut from the movie. (Scroll down for more on why June was cut from the Red, White and Royal Blue movie.)

Also cut from the movie is Rafael Luna. In the book, Luna is an independent senator and mentor to Alex, who betrays the Diaz family when he endorses the Republican presidential candidate running against Alex’s mother. That said, there was a new character added to the movie: Miguel (played by actor Juan Castano) a White House reporter who once had a fling with Alex, and is still harboring some feelings for the First Son. Miguel replaces Luna as the pseudo-villain of the story.

Other small changes include: In the book, Henry’s grandmother is the crowned Queen of England, whereas in the movie it’s his grandfather who is King. (That makes sense, given that the real queen died last year. Plus, how can you say “no” to Stephen Fry as the King of England?) In the book, Alex’s parents are divorced, and in the movie, they’re still together. (Meaning the step-dad character is also gone—just simpler for everyone!)

But my personal favorite change is the way the Red, White and Royal Blue movie handles the re-election plot line. Lopez not only simplifies the political subplot of the novel, but he also gives Alex a more active role in it. In the book, Alex works on his mom’s campaign in a general policy role. He has the plan to flip Texas, but he’s going to campaign events all over the country—until his mom finds out about Henry, and takes him off the campaign. In the movie, Lopez has the brilliant idea to actually send Alex to Texas as a home base to work on the campaign there. Rather than feeling like an extraneous storyline, the re-election campaign and Alex’s plan to flip Texas now seamlessly blends into his story with Henry. That’s why he was in Texas when Henry comes to visit! Plus, now you’re even more invested when Alex does manage to flip Texas. He was on the ground, doing the work. It’s a character win, rather than just a plot win.

Why isn’t June in the Red, White and Royal Blue movie?

Of all the changes from the Red, White & Royal Blue book, likely the one that will hurt fans the most is the loss of June. Not Junebug! How can there be a White House trio without her? Unfortunately, the novel is over 400 pages, which had to be synthesized down into an under-two-hour movie. Cuts had to be made.

In a previous interview with Decider, writer-director Matthew Lopez explained, “As I was putting this movie together, I had a lot of conversations with the producers and with [author] Casey [McQuiston]. And the first thing we knew was that movie time is not the same thing as novel time. Casey’s only limitation was page count. I had a lot more limitations to contend with. The decision I made as the director of the film, was that if it was not specifically about Alex and Henry—if it did not help me understand them as individuals or as as a couple—it didn’t belong in the movie. That applied to a lot of scenes that we filmed, and then decided to take out in the editing process.”

June’s character was dubbed “not vital” to the romance between Alex and Henry, and was therefore expendable. It’s a tough call, but a fair one. In that same interview with Decider, Lopez added, “Alex and Henry are at the center, and every other thing in the movie is a tributary into those two rivers. If I could make the audience feel the same way at the end of the film as they did at the end of the book, then no matter how differently I may have gotten there, I will have felt that I had succeeded.”

Some fans may disagree, but this reporter thinks Lopez succeeded.
