US newvehicle sales in 2018 rise slightly to 1727 million

first_imgDETROIT — Sales of new vehicles in the U.S. rose slightly in 2018, defying predictions and highlighting a strong economy.Automakers reported an increase of 0.3 per cent over a year ago to 17.27 million vehicles.The increase came despite rising interest rates, a volatile stock market, and rising car and truck prices that pushed some buyers out of the new-vehicle market.Industry analysts and automakers said strong economic fundamentals pushed up the sales and should keep them near historic highs in 2019.Tom Krisher, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Get ready for anything trade lawyer tells business community on NAFTA

OTTAWA — Growing uncertainty over the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement means companies need to brace themselves, including for the possibility that President Donald Trump walks away from a deal, a trade lawyer is warning the business community.“The first step is for companies to understand this is very real and that they need to start contingency planning,” said Dan Ujczo, an international trade lawyer specializing in Canada-U.S. matters.On the campaign trail last year, candidate Trump vowed to rip up NAFTA — the 23-year-old trade agreement between the U.S., Canada and Mexico — if he could not renegotiate a better deal.His recent reiterations of that threat, along with demands Canada and Mexico consider impossible, have forced everyone to take it more seriously.It remains to be seen whether Trump will in fact attempt to withdraw, how U.S. Congress would react, whether Mexico and Canada would still keep talking and what that would end up meaning, in real terms, for cross-border trade between the three countries.The U.S. business and agriculture community has been ramping up its efforts to convince Congress, which could use its legislative powers to make it harder for Trump to exit the agreement, that they are not on board with abandoning the deal.That outreach is important, Ujczo told businesses during an online presentation Friday, but it is also not too early to get ready for any outcome.There are some practical matters to consider, such as taking a look at the supply chain to determine how exposed a business would become if some of the tougher proposals, such as stricter rules of origin for the materials used in auto manufacturing, come to pass.That should include examining checking certificates of origin and maintaining scrupulous records, because both client companies and customs officials are likely to start applying greater scrutiny as they also get ready for the new way of doing things.“It’s time to really buckle down and take a look at that, because these proposals are going to heighten awareness throughout the supply chain and at the borders,” Ujczo, who is with the cross-border firm Dickinson Wright, in Columbus, Ohio, said during the presentation.The lawyer also had advice for companies thinking about outsourcing to Asia as a way to minimize the fallout from the NAFTA renegotiations.“Keep in mind NAFTA is not the only thing the Trump administration is doing. It’s targeting Asia,” said Ujczo, who noted the U.S. has been ramping up its trade enforcement activities all around the world. “The only way the Trump trade strategy works is as a one-two punch: tightening up North America, while also targeting goods coming in from overseas.”That raises the question of whether Canadian companies should think about packing up and moving south.Ujczo said that would not be the case for everyone, but if they have U.S. customers, it makes financial sense and the company was already thinking about moving there someday, it might not be a bad idea to speed up those plans.“It has to have some business rationale,” he said in an interview. “I would never recommend just setting up shop in the U.S. if you don’t have any other business going on there,” he said, but if it was already on the horizon: “It would accelerate that life cycle.”Brenda Swick, a Toronto-based international trade lawyer with Dickinson Wright who joined the presentation, was more cautious.“I think they should stay put where they are right now, but they should be looking at plan B,” she said in an interview.Swick said those back-up plans should include figuring out how a company would be effected if there was a new NAFTA, a bilateral agreement between Canada and the U.S., or no free trade agreement between the two countries at all.— Follow @smithjoanna on Twitter read more

UN Photo/Rick Bajornas Supporting young entrepreneurs is essential to tackling the world’s most pressing challenges and launching a new era of global engagement, senior United Nations officials said today, urging Governments to foster enabling business environments to help achieve sustainable development. “[Entrepreneurs] must be encouraged to stand at the frontline of socio-economic change, in the service of sustainable development,” the President of the General Assembly, Vuk Jeremić, said at the Thematic Debate on Entrepreneurship for Development in New York. “They are the ones who are often best placed to take the first crucial steps towards breaking the cycle of poverty in their surroundings.” Mr. Jeremić pointed that at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held last year in Brazil, countries recognized that Governments alone would not be able to achieve all commitments on sustainable development, and that the contribution of civil society and the private sector was crucial to innovation. “I believe Governments should see the promotion of socially-conscious entrepreneurial spirit as a basic duty,” he said, adding that entrepreneurs must be given the means to leverage new technologies that will help move away from an economy that depends on carbon-based energy systems. Entrepreneurs will also be able to contribute to the post-2015 development agenda, Mr. Jeremić said, through public-private partnerships that focus on improving the lives of the world’s most disadvantaged people. “I believe the post-2015 agenda will largely stand or fall on whether Governments will be able to work together with individuals who embody the spirit of socially-responsible entrepreneurship,” he said. “Our goal must be to establish a new form of global engagement.” ‹ › In his remarks, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon emphasized the importance of supporting young entrepreneurs, many of whom are currently facing an economic crisis in their countries. “This year, some 73 million young people will be unemployed. Between 2016 and 2030, an estimated 425 million young women and men will join the labour force between 2016 and 2030. That means the world will need about half a billion jobs by then,” Mr. Ban told participants. “To help meet this challenge, we should encourage, educate and empower young entrepreneurs.” Countries should focus not just on creating better conditions for entrepreneurship but also invest in education and nurture young people, Mr. Ban said, adding that they will be the ones creating jobs and innovative solutions in the future. “I call on all partners to support youth entrepreneurship, self-employment and youth-led businesses. The United Nations system will do its part. Our Global Compact initiative will continue mobilizing and supporting young entrepreneurs in advancing a more sustainable future,” he said, adding that the World Bank, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the UN Capital Development fund are also working to foster youth entrepreneurship. read more

Colombie létat de catastrophe naturelle décrété dans 28 départements

first_imgColombie : l’état de catastrophe naturelle décrété dans 28 départementsInondations et glissements de terrain s’abattent depuis des semaines sur la Colombie, qui subit les conséquences du phénomène climatique La Niña. Face à cette situation dévastatrice et meurtrière, le président colombien Juan Manuel Santos a décrété l’état de catastrophe naturelle dans 28 des 32 départements que compte le pays. Juan Manuel Santos, le président colombien, a fait part de cette décision via un communiqué dans lequel il annonce : “J’ai demandé au ministre de l’Intérieur de déclarer l’état de catastrophe naturelle dans 28 des 32 départements du pays”. Et d’expliquer que cette déclaration permettra de débloquer plus rapidement des fonds et de l’aide pour les sinistrés. La moitié des municipalités sont à ce jour touchées, et le gouvernement colombien manque cruellement de moyens pour porter secours aux victimes. Le ministère de l’Intérieur estime avoir besoin de quelque 325 millions de dollars (237 millions d’euros) pour faire face à la situation.À lire aussiCes effrayantes images démontrent l’impressionnant pouvoir de la natureAlors que les conditions météorologiques devraient encore s’aggraver, d’après le président, la seconde saison des pluies qui a démarré en septembre en Colombie se montre particulièrement intense en raison du phénomène climatique La Niña. Celui-ci entraîne une baisse de la température dans les secteurs central et oriental du Pacifique.Depuis le début de l’année, 136 personnes ont été tuées dans des inondations, ou dans les glissements de terrain qu’elles ont entraînés, a indiqué le ministère de l’Intérieur dans son dernier bilan publié mercredi. Celui-ci précise par ailleurs que ce sont au total 1,2 million de personnes qui sont touchées par cette catastrophique situation.Le 19 novembre 2010 à 16:15 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Sanctuary cities must end

first_imgWASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday warned so-called sanctuary cities they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grant money that has already been awarded if they don’t comply.Sessions said the Justice Department would require cities seeking some of $4.1 billion available in grant money to verify that they are in compliance with a section of federal law that allows information sharing with immigration officials.His statements in the White House briefing room brought to mind tough talk from President Donald Trump’s campaign and came just three days after the administration’s crushing health care defeat. Sessions also acknowledged he was clarifying a similar policy adopted by the Obama administration last year.“I urge the nation’s states and cities to carefully consider the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Sessions said.Trump had said during the campaign that he would “defund” sanctuary cities by taking away their federal funding. But legal precedent suggests that would be difficult.last_img read more

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Jesse Fennelly, Jay Samaha, and incumbent Jo Newhouse are running for the three seats up for grabs in this year’s School Committee race.Despite running unopposed, Wilmington Apple felt it was important for readers to get to know the candidates a bit more. Wilmington Apple is asking the candidates weekly questions leading up to the April 27 Town Election.This week’s question: Describe your past & present involvement with Wilmington Public Schools and in the Wilmington community.Below are the candidates’ responses, in their own words:Jesse FennellyCurrently, I am a member of the Wilmington Historical Commission; a member of the Wilmington Democratic Town Committee; a member of the Board of Directors at WCTV; and served as campaign treasurer and adviser for David Robertson during his campaign to be our State Representative. All of these positions are things I am very proud of and very proud to be associated with. It allows me to be in touch with the community and give back the best way I can.As for my involvement with the schools, I have been closely following the School Committee for the past few years. I attended many of the community events and interviews during the superintendent search and was impressed with the diligence of all those involved. I was recently appointed to the Strategic Planning Committee that Dr. Brand formed, so I am working with others from the community, including teachers, administrators and other parents to chart the course the school department will take over the next few years. Serving on the Strategic Planning Committee has been an amazing experience. I’ve been able to witness firsthand the dedication and passion of many of our administrators and educators. I hope to have the opportunity to build on this as a member of the School Committee.Jesse FennellyJo Newhouse (Incumbent)It has been my privilege to serve on a myriad of volunteer and civic organizations since moving to Wilmington in 2005.I found it particularly gratifying to volunteer as a member of the Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) for six years, and I served as co-chair of the Committee for three of the six years, until August 2018 when I was appointed to fill a vacant seat on the School Committee. On the SEPAC, I set the monthly agendas and researched special education issues to be addressed with the School Administration. I worked collaboratively with school administrators and volunteers to coordinate numerous workshops each year. These workshops educate, inform and support parents, school personnel and the community with regard to special education issues and services. The workshops included “Basic Rights In Special Education,” “An IEP for My Child,” “Anxiety in Elementary Children,” “Google Tools for Special Education” and “Understanding Dyslexia,” to name a few. As a SEPAC representative, I also attended numerous school open houses to discuss issues of concern with parents, teachers and administrators, and participated in the District Coordinated Program Review. With the support of the SEPAC Committee, I am proud to have been actively involved in making monthly support meetings available for guardians of students with special needs.In addition to being involved with the schools in an official capacity, I have enjoyed volunteering a good deal of time as a parent. I have volunteered regularly at the Wildwood, Woburn Street and North Intermediate Schools, to assist where needed, whether it be in the library or classrooms, covering lunches in the classroom, leveling books for classrooms, at field days or on field trips. Currently, I am proud to be the parent representative on the Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) team at the North Intermediate School.I served as the co-chair of the Wildwood PAC for three years, and I have been serving as the Enrichment Coordinator of the Northside PAC for the last three years. In this capacity I have organized numerous enrichment programs for the children and various teacher luncheons. I also have coordinated book fairs to raise money to purchase books for both the library and the classrooms to support the Readers Workshop curriculum.In the past, I volunteered as a member of the Homework Policy Committee, District Advisory Committee, Anti-Bullying Committee, and the Wildwood/Boutwell SAC. I have also served on multiple interview committees to evaluate and vet candidates for both teaching and administrative positions within the Wilmington School District.My volunteer activities have extended beyond the School system, to the Wilmington Community at large. For example, I have served as the treasurer of Local Heroes, a wonderful organization that supports our active military personnel, veterans and their families in a variety of ways. I also served as a board member and treasurer of the Women of Wilmington (“WOW”) organization, before it transformed into the We’re One Wilmington, and for a time, I served as the Wilmington Mom’s Club president. Last, but certainly not least, my husband and I are proud supporters of Autism Speaks and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.Thank you for the opportunity to share my past and present involvement in the Wilmington community.Jo NewhouseJay SamahaMy wife, Amanda and I moved to Wilmington in 2011 with our twins, Nick and Avis. Since that time we have grown to love Wilmington and all that it offers. We have enjoyed a variety of activities such as Fun on the Fourth, the Memorial Day Parade, the Wilmington 5K and Half-Marathon, and School Concerts. Wilmington has been very open and welcoming and that is one of the reasons I have so much pride in my town.One of the reasons we moved to Wilmington was because of full day kindergarten and the CARES before and after-school program. Nick and Avis participated and enjoyed Cares from kindergarten at the Wildwood School to fifth grade at the North Intermediate School.My children have been active in town sports and other programs. When my son, Nick, was in first grade I volunteered to coach his T-Ball team. I continued to coach, along with my wife, my daughter, Avis, in both in-town soccer, travel soccer, town recreational basketball, and Wilmington Travel Basketball. My son was involved in Cub Scout pack 361 for 5 years and crossed over to BSA Troop 136. During scouting I volunteered on numerous field trips and events.Most recently I was a member of the Wilmington Middle School Principal Search Committee. This experience gave me great insight into the schools and is one of the driving forces behind my run for school committee.Jay SamahaLike Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Infosys new CEO Salil Parekh will be earning just 25 of Vishal

first_imgSalil Parekh took charge as managing director and chief executive of IT major Infosys.Twitter InfosysThe newly inducted Infosys chief executive officer (CEO), Salil Parekh will earn only a quarter (25 percent) of the salary package given to his predecessor Vishal Sikka. Parekh will be receiving Rs 16.2 crore annually, according to the company postal ballot filed in Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).Parekh’s salary is way short of what Vishal Sikka drew in fiscal 2017. In the last one year Sikka earned Rs 45.1 crore before he quit in August after a yearlong battle between co-founders and management.The company has also given the details of severance pay terms; as severance pay, Parekh will be getting half his compensation of the previous 12 months and vesting of outstanding stock options till that period.This is in line with the fundamental ideas set forth by the co-founders of the IT major. N R Narayana Murthy had flagged the issue of higher salaries the top executives were getting.Another co-founder, now the non-executive chairman, Nandan Nilekani had also said earlier that he would like see a low profile senior executive to execute a vision of focused delivery for customers.According to the company’s postal ballot, Parekh will get an annual fixed salary of Rs 65 lakh and variable pay of Rs 97.5 lakh that would be compensated based on achieving metrics set by the company. The Bengaluru-based IT exporter has also offered stock options worth Rs 97.5 lakh that would be vested over two years.With Parekh taking over as the head of India’s second largest software exporter, interim CEO Pravin Rao has been redesignated as chief operating officer (COO).On January 2, Parekh was inducted in a low-key manner with hardly any of the top executives or founders present in company’s Bengaluru headquarter.Speaking to employees in video call, the new CEO said that he is delighted to lead the company and excited to lead the company at a time when technology is changing at a fast and disruptive pace.last_img read more

Orioles Adam Jones Backs Effort to Enroll Marylanders for Health Insurance

first_imgOrioles star Adam JonesOrioles star Adam Jones is throwing his celebrity behind an effort to get all eligible Marylanders to sign up for health insurance on the Maryland health exchange before the sign-up window closes on Feb. 15.Jones is teaming up with the Maryland Health Care for All! Coalition to release a radio ad encouraging Marylanders to call 211 for information about their health insurance eligibility.The ad begins with a fictional sportscaster running down some of Jones’s numbers from the 2014 season, and asking the centerfielder which of those numbers is most important.“It’s 211,” Jones answers, and when asked what’s important about that number, Jones replies, “On the telephone, you can now call 211 for help with health insurance.”According to Vincent Demarco, a spokesperson for Maryland Health Care for All!, the coalition is comprised of more than 750 faith, community, labor, and health care groups.“The Maryland health exchange is working very well,” Demarco told the AFRO. “Over 190,000 people have enrolled since Nov. 15, and our goal is that every Marylander who’s eligible for health care under the Affordable Care Act gets enrolled.”Demarco said the coalition has been working on the healthcare issue since 1999, and that it has sought to educate Marylanders about the Affordable Care Act since its passage in 2009. The group previously recorded ads with members of the Baltimore and Washington NFL franchises, and reached out to the Orioles for the latest ad, with Adam Jones eventually volunteering for the campaign.“We’re thrilled that [Jones] wants to do this and put his voice to making sure every Marylander who’s eligible for health care gets it,” said Demarco.ralejandro@afro.comlast_img read more

Sea level rise prior to 1990 found to be slower than other

first_img Since approximately 1990, it has been relatively easy to measure sea level height across the planet because of advances in satellite technology. Prior to that time, as the researchers note, it was much more difficult due to a variety of factors such as gravity, land rising and sinking, wind patterns, etc., using tide gauges placed at sites around the world. In this new effort, the researchers have attempted to gain a better understanding of sea level changes during the 20th century prior to the use of satellite technology.To create a better record, the researchers collected tide data and combined it with factors that are known to have caused changes in sea levels, such as shifts in land masses, regional events such as weather changes and, of course, runoff due to melting of glaciers and northern ice. They used all the data they had collected to create a model depicting sea levels in various parts of the world over the past 100 years, and then used the model to calculate the rate at which sea levels were rising on average over the same time frame. As expected, the model showed a rate of 3.1 millimeters per year since 1990, which agrees with satellite reports. But the model also showed that before 1990, the average rate was just 1.1 millimeter a year, which is significantly less than other models have shown. These numbers suggest that sea levels have been rising much faster since 1990 than other models have shown, in some cases up to three time faster.The accelerated rise is believed to be due to more runoff from mountain glaciers, expansion of ocean waters due to warmer water temperatures, and melting of ice in the northern and southern parts of the planet—all due to global warming. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from across Europe has found evidence that suggests the rate of rise in sea levels from approximately 1902 until 1990 was less than other models have shown. This indicates, the team reports in their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, that modern sea levels are rising faster than suspected. © 2017 Phys.org Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Explore further More information: Sönke Dangendorf et al. Reassessment of 20th century global mean sea level rise, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1616007114AbstractThe rate at which global mean sea level (GMSL) rose during the 20th century is uncertain, with little consensus between various reconstructions that indicate rates of rise ranging from 1.3 to 2 mm⋅y−1. Here we present a 20th-century GMSL reconstruction computed using an area-weighting technique for averaging tide gauge records that both incorporates up-to-date observations of vertical land motion (VLM) and corrections for local geoid changes resulting from ice melting and terrestrial freshwater storage and allows for the identification of possible differences compared with earlier attempts. Our reconstructed GMSL trend of 1.1 ± 0.3 mm⋅y−1 (1σ) before 1990 falls below previous estimates, whereas our estimate of 3.1 ± 1.4 mm⋅y−1 from 1993 to 2012 is consistent with independent estimates from satellite altimetry, leading to overall acceleration larger than previously suggested. This feature is geographically dominated by the Indian Ocean–Southern Pacific region, marking a transition from lower-than-average rates before 1990 toward unprecedented high rates in recent decades. We demonstrate that VLM corrections, area weighting, and our use of a common reference datum for tide gauges may explain the lower rates compared with earlier GMSL estimates in approximately equal proportion. The trends and multidecadal variability of our GMSL curve also compare well to the sum of individual contributions obtained from historical outputs of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5. This, in turn, increases our confidence in process-based projections presented in the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.center_img Citation: Sea level rise prior to 1990 found to be slower than other estimates suggesting modern rise significantly faster (2017, May 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-05-sea-prior-slower-modern-significantly.html Researchers model differences in East Coast sea level rise Credit: CC0 Public Domain This document is subject to copyright.

Top: Valiance X12. Bottom: Analog SPECT. Image courtesy of Molecular Dynamics.August 24, 2016 — Molecular Dynamics has successfully completed the first phase of a clinical trial to evaluate the Valiance X12 whole-body cadmium zinc telluride (CZT)-based digital SPECT/CT prototype with promising results. The study, conducted at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Israel, was designed to assess the image quality and diagnostic performance of the Valiance X12 and demonstrated improved image resolution and contrast.The Valiance X12 was used to acquire digital SPECT (single photon emission computed tomography) scans from 25 patients, who had previously undergone analog SPECT scans, at the Department of Nuclear Medicine under the supervision of Ronen Goldkorn, M.D., and Elinor Goshen, M.D.  The Valiance X12 digital studies were reviewed by experienced readers and were compared to the analog studies. Images were graded on a scale of 1 (poor) to 4 (very good) for sharpness and contrast. The mean grades for the Valiance X12 digital SPECT images exceeded those of analog SPECT images for sharpness (3.8 vs 3.1) and contrast (3.9 vs 3.3). Furthermore, focused digital SPECT on a specific region of interest was shown to further increase both the sharpness and contrast of the Valiance X12 images.  “These findings are promising for CZT-based digital SPECT,” said Goshen.  “Further research will assess other general nuclear medicine applications, as well as the contribution of focused imaging, a unique capability of the Valiance X12.”The unique architecture of the Valiance X12 includes CZT-based detectors with independent radial swivel motion, gantry rotation and adaptive image acquisition, which focus the detectors on specific regions, providing multiple angular views and enhanced images of a target.Goshen will present these results along with additional findings at the European Association of Nuclear Medicine Annual Congress, Oct. 15-19 in Barcelona, Spain.For more information: www.molecular-d.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
