Survey New York factories grow at slower pace in November

first_imgWASHINGTON – Manufacturing activity in New York expanded at a slower pace this month but remains at a healthy level.The Federal Reserve Bank of New York says its Empire State Manufacturing Survey slid to 19.4 in November from a three-year high 30.2 last month. But any reading over zero signals growth. New orders grew faster this month, though shipments and hiring expanded at a slower pace.Across the United States, factories are benefiting from a strengthening global economy and from a weaker dollar, which makes U.S. products cheaper in foreign markets.The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, reported earlier this month that U.S. manufacturing has expanded for 14 straight months.The New York Fed’s report adds to evidence that the U.S. economy is healthy. Growth clocked in at a solid 3 per cent annual pace from July through September on top of a 3.1 per cent gain in the second quarter of the year. Unemployment has dropped to 4.1 per cent, close to a 17-year low.last_img read more

Highway maintenance workers reminding motorists to slow down in work zones

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Officials with highway maintenance contract firms in the Peace Region are reminding motorists to slow down and respect signs in work zones now that summer construction season has arrived.The Work Zone Safety Alliance says that between 2008 and 2017, 12 roadside workers were killed and 218 were injured and missed time from work as a result of being hit by a motor vehicle. To help keep roadside workers safe, the Alliance is launching the 2018 Cone Zone Campaign, an annual road safety awareness initiative to encourage safe driving behaviours around roadside workers.The Alliance says that safe driving behaviour helps to ensure that roadside workers such as first responders, road builders, municipal workers, landscapers, flag persons, tow truck operators and utility workers return home safe to their families. The organization has released a list of things that workers need drivers to do while travelling this summer:Pay attention to temporary road signs, traffic cones and directions given by a traffic control person.Leave your phone alone.Safely slow down before reaching a Cone Zone and obey the posted speed limit.Respect the roadside as a workplace.Reduce your speed when driving near work vehicles with flashing amber, red and blue lights. If the posted speed limit is greater than 80 km/h, slow to 70km/h. If the posted speed is less than 80 km/h, slow to 40 km/h. Drivers who fail to adjust their speed or who fail to move over may receive a $173 violation ticket and three penalty points.last_img read more

Ohio States Lenzelle Smith Jr Guys gotta get their confidence back

OSU won, 76-60.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorCollege basketball seasons are bound to come with their respective twists and turns. Even an unblemished record doesn’t come without an off night or a close game.One day a team can be seemingly nailing every shot it takes and blowing out opponents while on the next, it can’t hit the broad side of a barn.During the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s current two-game losing streak, the Buckeyes (22-8, 9-8, sixth in the Big Ten) have experienced more of the latter.In particular, shooting from long range has been a struggle for OSU in losses to Penn State and Indiana.Against the Nittany Lions, coach Thad Matta’s team shot a pedestrian 29.4 percent from beyond the arc. As rough as that performance was, it paled in comparison to what OSU did against Indiana Sunday.For the first time since Jan. 10, 2004, OSU failed to connect from three-point land, missing all 11 of its attempts, and fell to the Hoosiers, 72-64.Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said after the loss to Indiana, the struggles from beyond the arc are an easy fix, however.“Shooting, that’s about confidence,” Smith Jr. said in an interview with Cleveland.com. “Guys gotta get their confidence back and we’ve got shooters so there’s no excuse. We’ve got to put the ball in the bucket. We’ve got guys who can make threes and we’ve got to step up and obviously put the ball in the bucket.”Smith Jr. tied junior forward LaQuinton Ross for a team-high with 19 points against the Hoosiers and shot 60 percent from the floor, but he missed both of his attempts from beyond the arc. He also shot just 1-6 from deep against Penn State.Matta said he has sensed confidence is dipping for OSU, especially when pressure is turned up.“We were rolling until Thursday night (against Penn State), in all seriousness,” Matta said to Cleveland.com after the loss to Indiana. “I think we’re really lacking in a confidence issue, we’re lacking in a toughness issue in terms of playing through situations. Those are things that somehow, some way, we’ve got to get corrected.”The Buckeyes’ need to regain their confidence is a high priority as the regular season draws to a close. They currently sit half a game behind Iowa and Nebraska in the Big Ten standings, who are tied for fourth in the Big Ten. The top four teams in the standings receive a first-round bye in the Big Ten Tournament, set to begin March 13.Smith Jr. was quick to add that even though the confidence has been lacking lately, the mood in the locker room doesn’t give any reason to believe the trend will continue.“We’re a great team when we come to execute and when we’re on top of our game,” Smith Jr. said to Cleveland.com. “I said we can beat any team in the country, and I’m going to stick by that … I should be happy with what we should produce at the end of the season.“I’m not panicking. I’m not worried about anything.”Since using a huge second half to beat Minnesota, 64-46, Feb. 22, it appears something has been off with the team.Ross said in an interview with Cleveland.com a big part of that is a lack of focus — something that could become a big problem if it is allowed to continue.“We just get too comfortable at times during the game, thinking we’ve got the lead and (that) we’re going to be able to hold it,” Ross said of the 21-5 run the Buckeyes allowed against Indiana, which the Hoosiers used to take the lead for good. “Not thinking that those other teams we’re playing are just as good as us. They’re putting their foot on the gas, and we’re taking ours off it.”Ross, OSU’s leading scorer, knows a thing or two about losing focus during a game. Ross was ejected during OSU’s game against Northwestern for shoving a player and committed a technical foul against Indiana for a similar infraction.Those are the type of things that can prove costly, Matta said, especially late in the season.“I told LaQuinton: ‘Hey, man, you get a technical foul and it’s your second foul and then you’re having your way in the second half and you foul out of the game,’” Matta said to Cleveland.com. “Little things. Those are the types of things that say, ‘Hey, we’ve got to get our concentration back, get our focus back and an understanding of what we’re doing.’”OSU’s next opportunity to try working through the rough spots in its play comes against No. 22 Michigan State (22-7, 11-5, tied for second in the Big Ten) when the Spartans are set to come to Columbus Sunday. Tipoff is slated for 4:30 p.m. read more

Jupp Heynckes named German coach of the year

first_imgBayern Munich’s recently retired coach Jupp Heynckes has been voted the best manager in GermanyThe 73-year-old replaced the fired Carlo Ancelotti on an interim basis in October last year following a disastrous start to their campaign and his arrival was largely credited for their success with Bayern going on to secure a sixth successive Bundesliga crown and finishing 21 points ahead of their nearest rivals.Heynckes was named as the German coach of the year last weekend after his 91 votes edged out the 89 votes that Schalke’s young manager Dominico Tedesco had won.New Bayern boss Niko Kovac came third with 77 votes following an impressive campaign with Eintracht Frankfurt.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s particularly nice to see an older coach win the vote in times marked by a certain obsession with youth,” said Bayern president Uli Hoeneß on the club website.“Jupp Heynckes has absolutely earned this award because it is so unusual for a man to be introduced to such a tricky situation, completely turn it around from day one and see it through to the end.”Heynckes has now won the award four times throughout his managerial career following previous triumphs in 1981, 1986 and 2013.last_img read more
