Too early to estimate Camaro impact on Oshawa Ont plant GM Canada

OTTAWA – It is too soon to say how many, if any, jobs will be lost due to a shift in production of the new Camaro in 2015 from Oshawa, Ont., to a factory in Michigan, General Motors Canada president Kevin Williams said Tuesday.Williams, speaking in an interview from the floor of the Detroit Auto Show, suggested, for example, that an increase in sales of other cars being assembled in Oshawa could take up some the slack.“It is too early in any manner to think of that decision on Camaro as being a huge volume or economic or employee impact on Oshawa,” he said.“Oshawa is playing a prominent role in launching the all-new Chevrolet Impala. It is a significant contributor to General Motors within Cadillac with the all new XTS that is being manufactured there.”The Canadian Auto Workers union has suggested 1,000 jobs could be lost as a result of the Camaro decision when production of the next generation of the muscle car moves to the United States.Williams wouldn’t predict how many cars GM would continue to produce in Oshawa after Camaro production ends, but said he saw opportunity for growth for the Buick Regal, Chevrolet Impala and Cadillac XTS that are also made at the plant.“Obviously market demand is the predictor, but we’re going to use that facility to optimize our position on those vehicles,” he said.“That’s how we’re focusing across the entire globe to ensure that we have the right efficiency and cost structures to support what we are trying to do.Chris Buckley, president of the Canadian Auto Workers local in Oshawa, said the union will meet with company executives next week to demand GM replace every job lost as a result of the loss of Camaro production.He said it becomes more expensive for GM to produce cars at the Oshawa factory if it isn’t being used to its full capacity.“It gets less expensive when you fully utilize and max out your production capabilities in your assembly plants,” Buckley said.“General Motors has never been so small and will continue to shrink. My biggest fear is General Motors has no long- term vision for its Canadian operations and we will continue to get smaller and that should be alarming to everyone.”2012 was a rough year for GM in Canada.The U.S. automaker saw its sales slip nearly seven per cent compared with 2011 in a year that the industry made overall gains of nearly six per cent.GM also saw its market share slide to 13.5 per cent from 15.3 per cent the previous year.However Williams said the company is focused on profitability and sustainability more than market share and sales volumes.Williams said the company is working hard to improve things like the opinion of its brands, customer service and residual values.“Those are the kinds of things that give us a lot of hope as we go into the future,” he said.Williams said the company is not going to do business the same way it did before the financial crisis and restructuring.“There are other competitors in the marketplace that may want to put as much as 30, 40, 50 per cent of their vehicles in fleets to make a market share number. That’s not the new GM.” by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 15, 2013 2:37 pm MDT Too early to estimate Camaro impact on Oshawa, Ont., plant: GM Canada says AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Lebanon UN envoy meets with Minister to discuss countrys security

Ms. Kaag praised efforts by the Lebanese Armed Forces and security forces to safeguard Lebanon’s security and stability from the threat posed by extremist militants, according to a briefing held by the Secretary-General’s spokesperson this afternoon.She said the international community would continue to stand firmly behind the Lebanese Armed Forces and security forces. The Special Coordinator also expressed her appreciation for the countries which already provide support and encouraged further assistance. When touring that region last month, Ms. Kaag called on all parties to exercise maximum calm and restraint, refrain from any action that could undermine the stability of the area and act responsibility to prevent any escalation in line with their commitment to resolution 1701. Last week, she also visited the country’s north-eastern Bekka Valley- home to some 410,000 Syrian refugees – and met with the region’s officials to discuss the humanitarian challenges of the area. read more

Brock seeking input on student information systems

Brock is replacing its student information system (SIS) and is looking for input from faculty, staff and students.As part of Brock’s SIS Modernization Project, vendors will be on campus demonstrating their solutions to interested faculty, staff and students. Last month, Workday featured their student information system Workday Student. On Thursday, March 22, Ellucian will present their product, Banner.Rico Natale, Student Information Services — User Experience Lead, says it’s crucial the current SIS is replaced and not simply preserved.“Brock’s current SIS has served the University for many years,” he says. “But continuing to maintain the system will cost significantly more money and staff time to improve functionality, stability and security than it will to replace it with a modern product.”Natale says the success of this modernization is dependent on stakeholder feedback.“It’s essential we listen to people who use the software — faculty, staff and students,” he says. “We want to understand their experiences and challenges with the current system.“By reviewing new system options, end users can help ensure that new product options offer solutions to existing challenges and satisfy future process needs.”Faculty, staff and students interested in providing input on SIS options are encouraged to register for all or part of a daylong product demonstration of Banner by SIS vendor, Ellucian, via Focus on Learning.Questions regarding the new SIS may be emailed to Rico Natale at rnatale@brocku.ca read more

The Nationals Yankees Dodgers And Cubs Cant Possibly Be This Mediocre …

The 2018 MLB season may not even be a month old, but it’s never too early to start overanalyzing how teams have looked so far. That’s especially true this season, when many of the clubs slated to be favorites going into the year have stumbled a bit coming out of the gate. Most of these teams will probably be fine in the end — seriously, it is still very early to know anything about how the season will play out — but just the same, it’s worth checking on which aspects of their struggles should disappear in due time and which might be cause for real anxiety.Washington Nationals (10-12)What’s gone wrong: For a team supposedly built around pitching, Washington currently ranks fifth-to-last in the National League in adjusted ERA — though it hasn’t been the fault of the Max Scherzer-led starting rotation. No, the blame rests with a bullpen that collectively boasts a 5.78 ERA and has performed even worse in clutch situations. (Witness the Nats’ epic meltdown against the Mets last Wednesday.) Some bad early-season defense isn’t helping either, and despite Bryce Harper’s raw feats of power, the offense isn’t hitting enough to make up for the 4.6 runs Washington is allowing per game.Cause for concern? Maybe. The Nats’ bullpen and defense were nothing special last season, either — they ranked 19th and 17th, respectively, in wins above replacement.1Averaging together the versions of WAR found at Baseball-Reference and FanGraphs. Closer Sean Doolittle has been fine so far, however, and setup men Ryan Madson and Brandon Kintzler are not as bad as they’ve looked in the early going. This lineup should get on track, too, when Daniel Murphy and Adam Eaton return from injury — or when Michael Taylor and Ryan Zimmerman break out of their April slumps. (We’ve seen Zimmerman hit poorly before, but he rebounded last season and has been hitting the ball hard in 2018, despite his bad results so far.)New York Yankees (11-9)What’s gone wrong: For all their immense hype going into the season, the Yankees have been pretty “meh” starting out, scoring only 13 more runs than they’ve allowed (113 vs. 100). Prized new left fielder Giancarlo Stanton is striking out constantly, particularly in front of the home fans at Yankee Stadium, while the team’s pitching has been average at best. They’re wasting a great start to the season by shortstop Didi Gregorius; he’s looked like an MVP over the past three weeks, but the Yankees barely have a .500 record to show for it.Cause for concern? Probably not. Although Stanton is pressing at the plate like some batters have been known to do in the pressure-packed New York media market, swinging at more pitches overall and whiffing on fastballs over the plate especially, he’s simply too good a hitter to not adjust eventually. (The ball he smoked at home on Friday might be a sign of things to come.) Likewise, scuffling starters Masahiro Tanaka and Sonny Gray should be better than the 7.22 ERA they’ve combined for so far, and a bullpen that ranked second in MLB in WAR last year is due for an improvement. Regression to the mean can work both ways, of course — Gregorius probably hasn’t fully made the leap to MVP level, for instance — but the Yankees should also benefit from better luck going forward: According to BaseRuns, which smooths out differences in the timing of offensive and defensive events, New York has been baseball’s fifth-best team so far, despite its record.Los Angeles Dodgers (10-10)What’s gone wrong: For one thing, Los Angeles’s offense is down this year, dropping from second in the NL last year to sixth in 2018, according to adjusted on-base plus slugging percentage. The Dodgers miss the production of third baseman Justin Turner, who fractured his wrist in spring training and has missed the entire season, and many of their other top hitters (Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, Yasiel Puig, the now-injured Logan Forsythe, etc.) are off to subpar starts. But an even bigger problem has been L.A.’s bullpen, which ranks 22nd in WAR a year after finishing fifth. Closer Kenley Jansen, usually the best reliever on the planet, sports a 6.23 ERA, and he’s already blown twice as many saves this year as he did all of last season.2Granted, Jansen only blew one save last season. But it was in 42 chances! This year, he’s blown two in five tries.Cause for concern? Sort of. The Dodgers’ hitting issues should sort themselves out eventually — they’re still projected by FanGraphs to score the fourth-most runs per game in the NL over the entire season, and they ought to be even better than that once Turner comes back in May. The bullpen question may be longer-lasting, however, given Jansen’s struggles. Although he brushed off early concerns about his performance (and he recorded a pair of scoreless innings over the weekend), there were questions about Jansen’s velocity in the spring, which have only amplified a month into the season. According to BrooksBaseball.com, Jansen’s sinker is averaging only 93.6 mph this April, compared with 95.7 mph last April and 94.9 two Aprils ago. We know that unexplained changes in velocity may indicate the kind of injury or mechanical problem that leads to cold streaks or prolonged absences, and we also know how important Jansen was to the Dodgers’ bullpen last year (he accounted for 48 percent of their relief WAR by himself). If Jansen suffers a down season, it would seriously affect L.A.’s chances of returning to the World Series.Chicago Cubs (10-9)What’s gone wrong: The Cubs are scoring plenty and they’ve already enjoyed a few memorable moments in 2018 so far, including this ridiculous eighth-inning comeback against the Braves the Saturday before last. But their starting pitching and defense — i.e., the twin cornerstones of Chicago’s 2016 World Series run — have been surprisingly mediocre thus far. Although veteran lefty Jon Lester has basically been his usual solid self, none of the other rotation members have lived up to their previous track records, from club mainstay Kyle Hendricks to newcomers Yu Darvish and Tyler Chatwood and second-year Cub Jose Quintana. And if Cub pitchers used to generate easily fieldable balls in play, that’s no longer the case: The team is below average in defensive efficiency and ordinary in various other fielding metrics. (When even Jason Heyward is showing up as a negative in the field, your defense has problems.)Cause for concern? Defensively, not really. Heyward may have lost a step in the field — which is worth keeping an eye on — but Chicago started slow on defense last season, too. They eventually managed to finish near the top of the advanced-metric leaderboards when all was said and done. But there might be real cause for concern in the subpar performance of the Cubs’ rotation, even after taking defense out of the equation. Chicago’s starters rank seventh-worst in fielding-independent pitching so far this season, continuing a three-year slide from fourth-best in 2016 to 10th-best last year, and now 24th-best in 2018. The optimist’s case is that this group is too talented to keep pitching so poorly — and walking so many batters, specifically — but the Cubs will have a hard time fending off the Cardinals and Brewers in the NL Central (much less reclaiming their superteam status) if they don’t start getting a lot more out of their rotation soon. read more

Modern curriculum for Grades 1 and 2

The education experience will come alive more for children because they are going to be thinking and learning through all of the different modalities through which children inherently think and learn,” she said.The reformed curricula will facilitate the ministry’s push for the development of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, Spirituality (STEAMS) in schools.“This curriculum reform focuses on STEAMS is something you’re going to see as a cross-cutting theme throughout the curriculum. We are working with a more integrated approach to our curriculum.”The Education Ministry recently announced that a new Grade Six timetable was piloted in several primary schools that allows for greater subject reinforcement for areas students are weak in. It also serves to introduce the learners to timetabling; a system usually used from Grade 7.“Being able to predict what’s going to happen in your day, from a developmental standpoint is always useful for children. It reduces anxiety, and it improves their preparedness for what they are going to face,” she added.Minister of Education, Dr. Nicolette Henry at the recent commissioning of the Kato Secondary School in Region Eight reminded that the ministry recognizes the challenges facing learners and is actively working to reduce the disparities that exist between the hinterland and coastland schools.In this regard, and in keeping with the ministry’s mandate to deliver equitable educational opportunities to all, the reformed curricula will be made available to every school in Guyana.The local education syllabus has not been reformed since 1976, and these steps taken are considered timely. read more

Why call 911 when you could text

first_imgThe FCC’s Chairman, Julius Genachowski, has announced an initiative to enhance the nation’s 9-1-1 system to allow it to take advantage of the latest technology offered in mobile phones including texting, mobile video and photos. There’s a lot of incentive to do so since 70 percent of emergency calls come from mobile phones. The challenge is that many 9-1-1 centers don’t have access to broadband to be able to receive such data, and operators haven’t been properly trained on how to communicate using the technologies.Next-Generation 9-1-1, as it is being called, was first proposed in the FCC’s National Broadband Plan. When fully realized 9-1-1 operators would be able to receive text messages from citizens requiring emergency services as well as mobile video and photos which could be used by first responders to better assess and address emergencies. The FCC Chairman used the shootings in 2007 at the Virginia Tech campus as an example of where support of mobile technology could have improved emergency response since students and witnesses tried sending texts to 9-1-1 which were never received. Besides support for mobile phone technologies Next-Generation 9-1-1 would also support automatic alerting which would consist of emergency calls made by devices such as environmental sensors capable of detecting chemicals, highway cameras, security cameras, alarms, personal medical devices, telematics and consumer electronics in automobiles.The announcement of the new initiative comes after a recent order by the FCC which calls for more stringent location accuracy requirements to improve the ability to find individuals who make 9-1-1 calls using their mobile phone. Next month, the FCC plans to hold a proceeding to receive public input on how to begin the transition to a “broadband-enabled, next-generation” 9-1-1 system.Read more at the FCC (PDF)last_img read more

Samsung has an iPod touch competitor called Galaxy Player

first_imgThe iPod touch has been in a pretty unique position since the day it was introduced. A music player that doubled as a video and gaming device, supported by an application store that refuses to stop growing both in popularity and available apps. There really isn’t much that can compete with that over the past few years.But as Android has become a popular alternative to iOS, so has its own app store grown. Now the iPod touch may finally get some decent competitors using Android as an OS. One of the first such devices looks to be coming from Samsung, and it’s called the Galaxy Player.AdChoices广告It’s classed as a music player, and is set to be unveiled at CES next week. But from viewing the initial spec of the device this looks to be anything but just a music player. Here’s what we know about the device:1GHz processorAndroid 2.2 Froyo4-inch Super Clear LCD (WVGA 800×480)1,200mAh rechargeable batteryT-DMBSoundAlive audio enhancing technologyWi-FiBluetooth 3.03.2MP rear-facing cameraFront-facing camera for video callsGPSHD video playbackMicro SD card slotAndroid Market and Samsung AppsAs well as having a large 4-inch screen, Samsung has kept the Galaxy Player thin with it measuring just 9.9mm thick. That’s slightly thicker than the iPod touch (7.2mm) and iPhone (9.3mm), but still acceptably thin.Samsung says the Galaxy Player is based on the Galaxy S smartphone as the styling and spec suggests. What we don’t know is how much the Player will cost, and what storage options will be available, but with CES just over a week away it’s not long to find out tseho key bits of information.Read more at Samsung HubMatthew’s OpinionI think personal media players (PMP) is one area where Android has yet to really take off. Manufacturers seems to be obsessed with trying to produce larger tablets using the OS rather than creating a solid iPod touch competitor. It makes sense to do so, as it gets more people using Android which then feeds back when it comes to phone choice.Samsung did a good job with the Galaxy Tab, and it’s Android phones are some of the best. If it gets the Galaxy Player right it could be an early hit in 2011.last_img read more

Best Buys HTC Thunderbolt pricing different than Verizons

first_imgThe HTC Thunderbolt has received quite a bit of attention in recent weeks and mainly for the wrong reasons. As the first 4G LTE device on Big Red, it seems this device should be getting lots of attention in a positive light. We’ve seen features come and go, no real floor presence at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and the confusing exclusivity agreement with Best Buy all within a relatively short amount of time. As if the lack of positive media wasn’t enough, it seems every day we find a new bit of information about the price.Is it $249 on contract? $749 off contract? What about $299 on contract? Will these also be Verizon’s prices? According to a recent tipster, perhaps not.What you’re seeing above is an edited screenshot from a Verizon inventory system that was sent to us. As you can clearly see the MSRP for this device is different than the price tag we’re seeing over at Best Buy, and not by a little bit either. Apply the $100 markup in the field next to the price, and you see a price that falls in line much closer with what you see a traditional smartphone selling for (with a contract-free purchase). [Update: Image removed]Just to be clear, this document says that Verizon stores can get the Thunderbolt for $4xx and charge no less than $5xx off contract. Rumors have it that Best Buy will charge either $249 or $299 for the handset with an agreement, and $749 off contract.Why such a staggering difference in price? Is part of the Best Buy exclusive an attempt to try out their new trade-in program, which encourages customers to bring back old electronics and trade them in for half what they were originally purchased for? Is this price difference of caused Verizon to be less aggressive in their pushing of the “next big thing”, the first 4G LTE device on the network?As this is an unreleased device, Verizon representatives were not available to comment on this topic, though I expect we will see more information in the upcoming weeks as Verizon is able to offer this device in their stores.last_img read more

President lawmakers meet no progress

first_imgWASHINGTON — President Barack Obama brought congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday for the first time since a partial government shutdown began, but there was no sign of progress toward ending an impasse that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country.Obama “refuses to negotiate,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters after private talks that lasted more than an hour. “All we’re asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare.”But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said moments later, “We’re locked in tight on Obamacare” and neither the president nor Democrats will accept changes in the nation’s 3-year-old health care law as the price for spending legislation needed to end the two-day partial shutdown.With the nation’s ability to borrow money soon to lapse, Republicans and Democrats alike said the shutdown could last for two weeks or more, and soon oblige a divided government to grapple with both economy-threatening issues at the same time.The White House said in a statement after the meeting that Obama had made it clear “he is not going to negotiate over the need for Congress to act to reopen the government or to raise the debt limit to pay the bills Congress has already incurred.”last_img read more

Former President George HW Bush Honored As Great And Noble Man In

first_img Share Cheryl Diaz Meyer for NPRA military honor guard carries the casket of former President George H.W. Bush during the funeral at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.Updated at 1:30 p.m. ETFormer President George H.W. Bush was remembered as “a great and noble man” by his eldest son, former President George W. Bush, at a solemn but joyous state funeral at Washington National Cathedral.The cathedral bells tolled as the casket containing the 41st president was carried by a military honor guard down the center aisle on Wednesday morning.Seated together on one side of the aisle were President Trump and former Democratic Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, along with their wives.On the other side was the Bush family, including the 43rd president, who as he greeted his fellow former chief executives appeared to slip a piece of candy to Michelle Obama. Bush gave the former first lady a candy during Sen. John McCain’s service in September, and the Internet noticed.George W. Bush said his peripatetic father “was born with just two settings: full throttle, then sleep.”He called him “the best father a son or daughter can have,” adding he “showed me what it means to be a president who serves with integrity.”Three of Bush’s granddaughters read Bible passages, and the first tribute was given by Bush biographer Jon Meacham. He recounted the story of Bush being shot down over the Pacific during World War II and called him “America’s last great soldier statesman, a 20th century founding father.”He poked fun at Bush’s sometimes-awkward public speaking style.” ‘Fluency in English,’ President Bush once remarked, ‘is something that I’m often not accused of,’ ” Meacham said, adding, “His tongue may have run amok at times, but his heart was steadfast.”“Abraham Lincoln’s ‘better angels of our nature’ and George H.W. Bush’s ‘thousand points of light,’ ” Meacham said, “are companion verses in America’s national hymn.”Former Sen. Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., recounted the time he and Bush saw the musical Evita about the life of Argentine first lady Eva Peron and how on the way back from the theater they were singing “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina” together. Simpson said Bush loved a good joke but could “never, ever remember the punchline, and I mean never.”Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney also delivered a eulogy, saying future historians will find “no occupant of the Oval Office was more courageous, more principled and more honorable than George Herbert Walker Bush.”You can read the full program here.Bush was transported to the cathedral in a procession from the U.S. Capitol, where his casket had lain in state since Monday.Following the service, the body will be flown to Texas, where Bush will be laid to rest on Thursday at the Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station, alongside his wife, Barbara, and their daughter Robin, who died at age 3.Copyright 2018 NPR.
