Demand dipped 5.5 per cent to 11.3m this year so far, the figures showed.Sales in all big European markets fell, with UK?demand dipping 22.2 per cent, in Germany by a fifth, in France 18.5 per cent, in Italy by 28.8 per cent and in Spain by 37.6 per cent.Among carmakers, Italy’s Fiat, America’s Ford and Chrysler and Japan’s Toyota were the biggest losers, falling 32.9 per cent, 29.5 per cent, 43.6 per cent and 28.7 per cent respectively.The best performers was BMW, up 5.1 per cent, Volvo rising two per cent and Mitsubishi gaining 43.2 per cent.Industry experts said the data showed the impact of economic uncertainty and the end of state scrappage schemes, which help people to buy new cars in return for trading in old vehicles.President of the Centre for Automotive Industry Research at Cardiff Business School, Garel Rhys, said the UK scrappage scheme boosted the market by 300,000 cars in 2009 and by 100,000 this year, but he said it benefited the car retail and wholesale industry more than manufacturers.It was likely to be 2013 before the car market returned to the pre-recession level of 2.4m cars sold in 2007, he said. “The fall in the car market is entirely in keeping with the anaemic growth in the economy,” he said.“People are worried about what will happen to their job prospects in the next couple of years.” last_img read more

Morgan & Morgan drops Monster lawsuits

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. All Lawsuits Filed Against Monster Energy Company DismissedThe law firm of Morgan & Morgan, which filed more than a dozen lawsuits against Monster Energy Company and Monster Beverage Corporation in February and March of 2016 claiming that drinking Monster Energy drinks caused a variety of ailments, has abandoned all lawsuits. The Florida-based personal injury law firm asked courts to dismiss the suits after filing.On its website, Morgan & Morgan said this about Monster’s products, “The excessive amounts of caffeine in these drinks, combined with ingredients such as guarana and taurine that act similarly to caffeine, create a substance that may be unhealthy for consumption.”“The voluntary dismissal of these lawsuits, we believe, speaks volumes,” said Marc P. Miles of Shook, Hardy & Bacon, counsel for Monster Energy Company. “We believe fairness dictates that the media now write about the dismissals.”Shortly after filing the lawsuits, Morgan & Morgan held a press conference which resulted in a number of media outlets broadcasting, posting or printing news stories about alleged claims of injury by Monster.Mr. Miles continued, “There is a lot of misinformation in the public about energy drinks. Once the substantial body of scientific evidence is reviewed, the safety of Monster Energy drinks becomes readily apparent.“Recent scientific studies specifically conducted on Monster Energy drinks and published in peer-reviewed medical journals concluded there was no safety concern associated with the consumption of Monster Energy drinks. Over the past 14 years, more than 16 billion Monster Energy drinks have been sold and safely consumed worldwide,” he said.

Waterfall House / Andres Remy Arquitectos

first_img Waterfall House / Andres Remy Arquitectos Argentina Area:  340 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2005 “COPY” Save this picture!© Alejandro Peral & Juan Raña+ 39 Share Photographs:  Alejandro Peral & Juan RañaText description provided by the architects. The waterfall house was conceived by the request of a young business man in a closed neighborhood. The particularities and requisites of the client, among with the lot’s characteristics, established the path to follow in the design process. The borders of the small lot we are referring to, seem to disappear in the predominant visuals: the lake. The surrounding houses, the sun’s path and the visual were needed to understand the emplacement. At the back of the lot, at the ground level the lake has a shy presence. So it was considered to raise up to get a better look at the lake. This is the reason why it was decided to place the social area in the upper level, conquering the panoramic views to the lake during the day. It is there where the water shows up. Unexpected at that height, it embraces the architecture and paints it with reflections, bringing life and movement. Appearing and disappearing to the eyes of the user, relaxing with it’s sound, dazzling with reflects, going through a path that stimulates the senses.

It erases the line between natural and artificial, inside and outside. The elevated water falls, as a waterfall, over the swimming pool in the lower floor, refreshing the rooms and providing privacy at the same time. The water fall also filters the northern light making it less harmful. Save this picture!© Alejandro Peral & Juan RañaThe waterfall is the icon of this house; this is why it was named after it. About the functionality of the house, we designed flexible spaces, so it could be adapted as much as to the social active life of our client, as to the needs of a future family. The flexibility allows isolating the private areas in the lower floor from the public areas in the first floor and part of the lower floor. As a way to connect the street life with the inside of the house, was designed a mixed use room, used as a garage, playroom or to host parties. The vertical circulation in triple height baths the inside with cenital light, joining the different levels. The volumetric game outside and inside vanishes at the back, opening the spaces to the lake. The balance between full and empty tries to avoid the adverse effects big windows may cause to thermal isolation. In contrast, the front presents a closed design holding the service areas and giving privacy to the house.Project gallerySee allShow lessElizabeth Diller and Jürgen Mayer H., next week at ColumbiaArticlesAD Round Up: Green Roof Part IIArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Year:  Architects: Andres Remy Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Waterfall House / Andres Remy ArquitectosSave this projectSaveWaterfall House / Andres Remy Arquitectos CopyHouses•Buenos Aires, Argentina ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeAndres Remy ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasBuenos AiresHouses3D ModelingArgentinaPublished on November 28, 2009Cite: “Waterfall House / Andres Remy Arquitectos” 28 Nov 2009.

Fort Worth B-Cycle looks to attract more riders

first_imgFort Worth Bike Sharing has new plans to attract riders in both the city and on campus. Corinne Hildebrandt Twitter TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin What we’re reading: Arrivals in Argentina printWith the number of riders on the decline for the first time in program history, Fort Worth B-Cycle has made plans to expand the program. In 2018, Fort Worth Bike Sharing reported 43,200 trips were taken compared to the nearly 60,000 trips that were taken the year before. Malorie Sarsgard, the marketing communications manager for Fort Worth Bike Sharing, said ridership is often affected by unfavorable weather conditions like rain or extreme heat.As a way to attract more riders during the heat of the summer, Fort Worth Bike Sharing is introducing 50 new electric bikes in April. Sarsgard said the new bikes will allow riders to go twice as far in half the time. The bike sharing program is hoping their next step would be a partnership with the Trinity Metro. This would allow people with a pass for the bus system or TEXRail to also have access to the bike sharing system. With the growing trend of dockless bikes and scooters, Fort Worth Bike Sharing hopes to work with the Fort Worth city council to introduce a dockless scooter program. Sarsgard said this would create an integrated system. The dockless scooters would be added to the already existing docked bike stations around the city.While the company has plans to improve the system around the city, Sarsgard said she hopes to provide more services to TCU and its students. Fort Worth B-Cycle started a bike sharing partnership with TCU in 2017. Enrolled students are granted a membership each semester, allowing them to ride for free. Over the past two years, the program reported an increase in the number of student riders. Fort Worth Bike Sharing has two stations near TCU’s campus, but Sarsgard said that might not be enough.“For now the amount of riders we actually see, it would be beneficial, I think, to have more bikes available,” she said. “Whether that be at that particular station or different stations on campus.” Will Beasley, a junior TCU student, said he thinks it would be beneficial to have more bikes available as students continue to use the system.“It’s a perfect way for students to cheaply get around campus,” he said. “When I used them last weekend, one of the stands was almost completely empty and the other one only had a couple left.”As the new changes start to take stride, the program hopes to get ridership numbers back on the rise.

RSF concerned about reporter missing in Tanzania

first_img Reports December 7, 2017 RSF concerned about reporter missing in Tanzania Gwanda is a correspondent of Tanzania’s leading Swahili-language newspaper, Mwananchi, and its English-language version, The Citizen, which are published by the Nation Media Group.In a statement issued by the publisher, his wife said that she last saw him on 21 November in a white Toyota Land Cruiser with two men, and that he seemed very frightened. Since then, no one has answered any of his three telephones.In recent months, Gwanda had been investigating a series of mysterious murders of policemen and local officials by men on motorcycles in the Pwani region, which lies just to the east of the Dar es Salaam region“We join the Nation Media Group in calling on the police to step up the investigation and do everything possible to locate this journalist,” RSF said. “The conditions in which the media operate in Tanzania have worsened, partly because of the government’s behaviour, and ensuring that this kind of attack does not go unpunished is essential to avoid undermining journalism as whole.”The climate for the media has declined in Tanzania since John Magufuli became president in 2015 and began adopting very critical positions towards the media. Tanzania is ranked 71st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Shelia Jackson, Troy Tourism director, and Liqin Chen, a visiting Chinese scholar, communicated in music with Jackson in the lead.Chen, a visiting scholar at Troy University, arrived in Alabama on Monday, July 23. She spent the first two days inside the apartment recovering from jetlag. But, on Thursday, she decided to venture outside and see what this Alabama was all about. Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Book Nook to reopen In China, Chen is a teacher of English education and associate dean of the school of foreign languages.“English is the international language and, in China, children begin to learn English when they are nine years old and continue to learn through college,” she said. “But the English language is most difficult in cross cultures.”The Johnsons invited Chen a second time to their home and, on this visit, Chen met Steve Johnson’s parents.“They were celebrating their 63-year anniversary and it was a wonderful love story they shared,” Chen said. “After those years, they are so happy. It was inspiring to hear their story and it was good to know more of the American culture.”For their hospitality Chen gave the couple a gift, “a very small gift.”“But, in return, I received a card from an 81-year-old person thanking me for the small gift,” she said. “I was impressed with the respect they showed to each other and to me, an ordinary person.“The people here in Alabama have treated me with love and respect. I think they do to each other and to all people. What I have learned about Alabama and America the most is the respect the people have. I am so impressed with the respect.”Chen was invited to attend the IT Summit at Troy University and she received the same kind of respect from those in attendance that she had found on her “trips” around Troy, at church and in the home.“I was so grateful to all of them,” she said.“I was impressed, too, with Dr. Jack Hawkins, university chancellor, because he talked not of yesterday but of tomorrow, of the future. He has a great vision. What he said opened my eyes more about America. It is a great place, this America. It has my respect just as it has given me its respect.” Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… A passerby showed Chen to the back of the church. She looked inside and saw three people sweeping the floor and knocked on the door.“I said to them, ‘I can sweep with you,’ and they said, no, for me not to sweep and asked me if I wanted pizza,” Chen said. “The ladies were very nice and told me not to walk when it was dark. They drove me home. That was the first time I had talked long to American people. It was exciting and wonderful.”On Sunday, Chen visited Southside Baptist Church again and attended the Sunday school class being taught by Teresa Johnson, an assistant professor at the Troy University School of Nursing, and her husband, Steve, a financial aid counselor at the university.“I enjoyed the lesson very much and then they took me home with them and served me dinner,” Chen said. “I had the opportunity to talk with people about the American culture and to get involved in the culture.” Email the author By The Penny Hoarder “I did not know what to expect,” Chen said. “But what I found was a good experience in the Troy city. It is a wonderful, beautiful place as I walked around and the people I met on the trip were so respectful of me. Me, a visitor from China, a long, long way from home.”As Chen continued her “trip,” she saw a rainbow in the sky.“I followed the rainbow and I found a church, the Southside,” she said. “There were no people outside.

first_imgRaging Moderate by Will DurstIf the goal is to cause both sides of the political spectrum to quiver, twitch and shake like a raccoon clinging to the outside of a cement mixer speeding through a railroad yard, just casually throw out the term, “gun control,” and step back. The left considers all guns the reprehensible tool of warriors, criminals and primitives, while in most of red state America, the definition of gun control is using two hands and hitting the target.Then some addled-brained, flippo-unit actually uses those techniques to take out a bunch of innocent people, and the blowback starts with a debate about how big our guns should be, further restrictions on who can purchase them and whether we need to know the identity and shoe size of the purchasers.Yes, we do. For crum’s sakes, you need to present identification to apply for a card to take a book out of a library. Admittedly, in the right hands, a book can be more dangerous than a gun, but they hardly ever put holes in people’s bodies that the blood leaks out of way too quick.With increasing frequency, these body counts shoot north into double digits, which triggers a discussion of banning these high-powered, personal weapons of destruction. For a minute. Then the Republicans kowtow to the perverted wishes of their cruel masters, the NRA, which thinks the best way to avoid school shootings is to ban schools.This same NRA commanded their lapdogs to prevent research into gun-related deaths. That’s right, Republicans have refused to allow the funding of government-related, gun-death research. Which is a shame, since America has a surplus of raw data. You could say we are dead solid center of the gun-related death universe. It’s like talking about sandwiches in Philadelphia but prohibiting any mention of the cheesesteak. As Holland is to tulips, the U.S. is to gun deaths.In the wake of these horrific tragedies, conservatives then predictably go straight to the handbook of NRA generated talking points to say the same things over and over. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.” “None of this would have happened if the gay Hispanic dancers were armed.” “Assault weapons can be used as legitimate hunting rifles.”Really? That’s your argument? Because, okay, it makes a sort of sense. You can also use a chainsaw to cut butter, thought it might get a little messy around muffin time. Come to think of it, a hand grenade will signal the end of recess. Doorbells can be rung with 12-pound sledgehammers. Once.They’re called “assault weapons” for a reason. They’re not “tucking kiddies into bed” rifles. They’re for assaults. Yes, the Second Amendment guarantees a well-regulated militia the right to bear arms, but at the time our Founding Fathers were talking about citizen-soldiers wielding one-shot muskets, not terrorist-wannabees brandishing HK MG4s capable of shooting 800 .45 caliber bullets in under a minute with a range of a half a mile.Hunting weapons? Seriously? What are you hunting? Tanks? A herd of triceratops? Can you imagine someone putting a full clip into a deer at 30 yards? You’d end up with venison jerky. In noun and verb forms. Jerky being the operative word here.——— FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Wheat imports to remain high

first_imgThe patchy quality of this year’s UK wheat harvest will force British millers to con- tinue importing higher-than- usual amounts of bread-making wheat.According to Alex Waugh, director of the National Association of British and Irish Millers, the amount of grain imported from North America and Europe is expected to exceed 1m tonnes in 2008/09 – higher than the usual 900,000 tonnes.”Last year, imports from North America were up because of the very steep increase in European prices, which for a time caused a change in normal price relationships,” he said. “We expect imports to remain relatively high this year, because of quality issues relating to the UK harvest.”Wheat prices are expected to remain steady, he added. “Grain markets seem unlikely to fall much further, but we are not expecting big price rises over the next few months either,” he said.A tonne of bread-making wheat delivered to Liverpool is currently valued at around £160, down from around £190 this time last year.last_img read more

Fannie Cox Prize to Burton, Musunuru

first_imgBriana Burton, an associate professor of molecular and cellular biology, and Kiran Musunuru, an assistant professor of stem cell and regenerative biology, have been named the winners of this year’s Fannie Cox Prize for Excellence in Science Teaching.Created through a gift from Gardner Hendrie ’54, the prize is awarded annually in recognition of exceptional teaching in introductory courses. Recipients receive a $10,000 personal award and $40,000 in unrestricted support for teaching and research. Selections are made by a committee of faculty members from across the sciences, including previous awardees, and are based on the ability to inspire students, instill in them a passion for science, and effectively communicate complex ideas.One of Musunuru’s students called him “the best professor I have had at Harvard. He is an amazing lecturer … he’s very accessible to talk about the course, research, and teaching outside of class. His enthusiasm is contagious. I would take any class he taught.” Rose Lincoln/Harvard Staff Photographer“The best teachers instill in their students a passion for their subject and an eagerness to learn, and both Briana Burton and Kiran Musunuru accomplish that,” said Edgerley Family Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Michael D. Smith, also the John H. Finley Jr. Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “They are prime examples of the innovative teaching that happens on a daily basis in Harvard’s classrooms. I hope their colleagues in the faculty will join me in congratulating them for this well-deserved honor.”In a letter to faculty announcing the award, FAS Dean of Science Jeremy Bloxham cited Burton’s and Musunuru’s dedication in the classroom, passion in their fields, and hands-on teaching styles.“Professor Burton is an amazing teacher,” one student wrote about Burton. “Her lectures are very clear and … I felt more invested in the course because Professor Burton was so invested.”One of Musunuru’s students called him “the best professor I have had at Harvard. He is an amazing lecturer … he’s very accessible to talk about the course, research, and teaching outside of class. His enthusiasm is contagious. I would take any class he taught.”“I was extremely surprised and honored to be selected for this award,” Burton said. “As teachers, we ourselves must be perpetual students. I am continually learning from my students and exploring new ways to engage them in the material. I particularly enjoy teaching in the foundation courses because this is the point at which most students make the transition from textbook learning to experimental thinking. This transition can be extremely challenging, yet it is absolutely essential to creating a population not just of scientists, but of critical thinkers who will ultimately go on to play key roles in a broad spectrum of influential fields.”Burton said she plans to use the support that comes with the prize to invest in research projects.“It is an honor to be recognized for teaching, but much of the credit must go to Douglas Melton and David Scadden, as department chairs, Kevin Eggan, as head tutor, and William Anderson, as associate director of education, for serving as role models and establishing a culture of excellence in teaching for the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department,” Musunuru said. “My guiding principle is to have students learn by working with actual data from real-life cases, to recreate the process of discovery. I love to see the light in students’ eyes when they experience the moments of epiphany that make scientific research so rewarding.”Musunuru said he plans to use the support to continue a research project — about the effectiveness of classroom vs. online learning — he began last spring as part of an introductory biochemistry course.“We obtained empirical evidence that traditional face-to-face lectures resulted in improved student learning compared to online modules,” he said. “I would like to use the funds to further investigate the effectiveness of lectures vs. online modules and better understand how best to ‘blend’ the approaches.”last_img read more
