Tressel Rested Buckeyes ready for grueling November schedule

Time off has not been advantageous for Ohio State in the past.   The Buckeyes have dropped three of their last four contests following a bye week, but coach Jim Tressel said he thinks the week off could pay dividends this time around when OSU hosts Penn State on Saturday. “I thought we used our time wisely,” Tressel said. “Hopefully we will be back on the field with a lot of enthusiasm and pep in our step. We did work out on Sunday for about an hour and guys seemed to be refreshed.” As the Buckeyes prepare for the home stretch of the season, Tressel said it’s also important to recover emotionally. “I think if there’s anything that you can accomplish during an open week, it’s perhaps to fill your emotional gas tank back up,” he said. “We’re going to need every ounce of emotion we can get as Penn State comes in.” Injury report Plagued by injury this season, the banged-up Buckeyes got the chance to rest and heal during their break. After suffering a foot injury in the team’s lone loss at Wisconsin, captain Ross Homan has been making strides toward full health, Tressel said. “The key will be how does he do two days in a row to see if there’s any issues,” Tressel said. “But based upon after Sunday, I would say no doubt” he’ll be ready. Tressel said he expects both Homan and fellow linebacker Dorian Bell to play Saturday. Revived running games A key to each squad’s success of late has been a resurgence from the running back position. For the Buckeyes, junior Dan “Boom” Herron eclipsed the 100-yard mark on the ground for the first time in his OSU career against Minnesota on Oct. 30. “I think ‘Boom’ has raised us through his play,” Tressel said. “I think his play has been excellent, and if he’ll play like he did this last month and like he did last November, we have a chance this November because I think he is a difference-maker.” The Nittany Lions’ leading running back, Evan Royster, has regained form from his First-Team All-Big Ten selection a year ago. Achieving 100-yard performances in each of the last two games, Royster is now PSU’s all-time leading rusher, with 3,652 yards. “Evan Royster is a guy that now has hit it into gear,” Tressel said. “I think at the beginning of the year, he probably wasn’t himself, and as the year has gone on, just like most tough backs do, he got himself back to where he’d like to be.” Featuring two of the conference’s elite rushers, dominance on the ground could be the key to victory on Saturday. “We’ve never been bashful about saying if you do well with the run game, you’ve got a chance to win,” Tressel said. Penn State quarterback duo The Nittany Lions will come to the Horseshoe with two quarterbacks who have thrown for at least 500 yards and five touchdowns: redshirt sophomore Matt McGloin and freshman Rob Bolden. Tressel said the Buckeyes expect to see both under center. “They’ve now played two quarterbacks, and I would expect that we may, perhaps, see both of them. That’s the way we would prepare,” he said. Despite having to prepare for two signal-callers, Tressel said the duo’s styles don’t differ much. Mr. November The Buckeyes are 26-4 under Tressel in November, including 14-1 since 2005. Tressel said his team knows the importance of improvement in the last month of the season. “I think they’ve done a pretty good job of believing you have to keep working to get better, and if you keep working to get better, you probably will,” he said. “Then it gives you a chance in November.” Tressel said his players understand the importance of the team’s final three games. “When I saw these schedules about four or five years ago when they said, ‘You’re going to have Penn State to start your November for a few years,’ I thought, ‘Oh,’” he said. “Not to mention you’re going to have Iowa and Michigan right after them, that’s going to put a challenge on any November record anyone would ever have. “I think our guys believe that this is a very important time.” read more

New technology obviates the need for water in coal separation

first_imgMineral Separation Technologies has created a new product, the DriJet 100, that separates coal and ash without using water or chemicals. The introduction of the DriJet 100 follows the recent chemical spill on the Elk River in Charleston, West Virginia. A liquid used for separating coal leaked from a storage containment tank into the river. The spill endangered more than 300,000 West Virginia residents. “DriJet technology has many valuable practical applications. Perhaps the most important one is that it eliminates the possibility of a chemical spill such as the one that happened recently in Charleston,” said Charles D. Roos, CEO of the company. Mineral Separation Technologies recently received a patent for its DriJet technology, a process that uses x-rays to identify the atomic weight of coal particles and air jets to separate coal from ash. The DriJet 100 has been field-tested and is now available to coal companies nationwide.“We remove the ash right at the mine face. Our technology means fewer coal trucks on the road and less coal waste in impoundments,” Roos said. “It cuts the cost from mine to market. And it is much better for the environment than processes now in use.”The company says “DriJet requires low power and has few moving parts. Operating costs, compared to other coal preparation technologies, are low.”“Simply stated, our technology is cleaner, portable and more reliable than traditional coal prep plants,” Roos said.last_img read more

The people still fighting leprosy years after the world stopped paying attention

first_img Share Tweet Email3 By AFP 20,997 Views Jan 29th 2017, 11:30 AM The people still fighting leprosy, years after the world stopped paying attention to it More than 200,000 people still get leprosy every year. Sunday 29 Jan 2017, 11:30 AM A man with leprosy drinks water at a specialist hospital in South Korea. Image: AP/Press Association Images center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL FARMER FOLAHAN IS one of up to 200 people in the west African country of Benin who still contract leprosy every year.Her face is covered in nodules –  a symptom of the condition – when she arrives at the screening centre in the town of Pobe, in the east of the country.Doctors put her on medication straight away. If she takes it properly for 12 months and there are no side effects, she will be completely cured.Leprosy is officially a disease of the past, relegated to the annals of history with conditions such as smallpox and bubonic plague.But more than 210,000 people across the globe still contract it annually.The disease, which affects the skin and nerves, causing grave damage to the hands, feet and eyes, is spread by close contact between people, particularly those living in poverty.Folahan’s four-year-old son will need to be monitored closely.In 2000, the World Health Organisation said that leprosy, a disease long associated with biblical times, was no longer a public health problem with a rate of less than one case per 10,000 people.“It’s true that leprosy affects fewer people than malaria,” said Beninese doctor Roch Christian Johnson, who is the current president of the International Leprosy Association (ILA), on a return visit to his home country.But here 25% of the cases detected already have serious and debilitating handicaps.In the tiny nation of Benin, between 150 and 200 new cases of leprosy are recorded every year, of which 10% are children. That number hasn’t changed much in a decade.Rural area The screening centre in the heart of Pobe was built by the Fondation Raoul Follereau on the site of a former leper colony and has taken in about 20 patients every year since 2000.Pobe is situated near the border with Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, which every year records some 4,000 cases of leprosy.“Patients always arrive too late, when their wounds are gangrenous,” said Thierry Gateau, who runs the Pobe centre.People with leprosy are often farmers like Pascal Boton, who don’t get a diagnosis early enough and damage their numb limbs.Boton had an accident and didn’t feel anything but, as it does with most cases, the wound got infected and his foot had to be amputated.“Nurses came to give me medication and then they stopped,” he said.Without regular treatment, the symptoms of leprosy don’t go away.‘A curse’“It’s a sensitive issue,” said Annick Chauty, a French doctor, who has spent 15 years in Pobe.“Here leprosy is associated with a curse so we pretend we’ve come to study skin diseases.”In Benin, “it’s thought to be an illness caused by bad luck”, added Ambroise Adeye, a surgeon for the foundation and the town’s public hospital.People with leprosy first go to see traditional healers and that makes things worse. They then have to save up to pay for a consultation.But treatment for leprosy, which involves a course of three antibiotics, is free and prescribed in free clinics across Benin.To spread the word, the National Programme Against Leprosy, run by the country’s health ministry, broadcasts messages on community radio stations and conducts awareness programmes.An illness of poverty People with leprosy, many of them left disabled by the disease, have seen their houses knocked down and fields trampled. Wives have been thrown out of their homes.Oladele, a 24-year-old barber, for example has been leprosy free for three years. The only traces of the disease are his slightly clawed fingers.“I don’t want to go back to the fields. The centre offered me training. I chose hairdressing,” he said.Sessions with a physiotherapist mean he can hold the cutters and scissors without any problems.His boss is supportive and his family paid for his apprenticeship. When money isn’t available, the Follereau foundation steps in and pays for rehabilitation.“There’s better acceptance but people who’ve had leprosy need help,” said Gateau.It’s possible to make leprosy a thing of the past, he said, but on one condition: “A country needs to develop. Leprosy is still an illness of poverty.”Read: Irish people told to avoid Gambia as West Africa troops prepare to move inRead: Priest arrested for predicting 92-year-old Robert Mugabe will die this year 9 Comments Image: AP/Press Association Images A man with leprosy drinks water at a specialist hospital in South Korea. last_img read more

Three month tax relief for diaspora

first_imgA three-month extension of the deadline for Greeks abroad – including Greeks in Australia – for the submission of documents to avoid double taxation has been approved by the Greek Ministry of Finance, following strong reaction by the diaspora. For the 2012 financial year, the deadline for submission of supporting documents is extended until March 29, 2013, instead of December 31, 2012, that was stipulated in the initial decision of the Ministry of Finance of the mother country. With the controversial law 3943/2011 passed by the Greek parliament last year, the Ministry of Finance compels all Greeks – who declare residence abroad and are subject to taxation only on their income arising in Greece – to file a tax return in the Directorate of Financial Services for Greeks Abroad (Διεύθυνση Οικονομικών Υπηρεσιών Εξωτερικου- ΔΟΥ) for residents abroad, together with evidence of permanent resident status abroad and taxation of the income of every Greek, permanent resident in Australia, by the Australian Taxation Office. Bureaucratic procedures introduced by the controversial decision of the Ministry of Finance will cost a lot of money and heartache to Greeks abroad – and potentially jeopardise Australia’s relationship with Greece – while there is a simpler and cheaper way of obtaining and submitting documents to the Directorate of Financial Services for non-residents. This solution is supported by the Greek Embassy in Canberra. Early this week, diplomatic circles in Athens told Neos Kosmos that Athens treats Greeks of Australia as third-class citizens. “Australia is not a third world country,” they said. “If there is a political will, Athens can immediately begin negotiations with Australia for signing a mutual agreement to avoid double taxation that would put an end to the issue.” The same circles added that “the three-month extension of the deadline for submission of supporting documents is a short term solution. The permanent solution is a Double Tax Avoidance Agreement signed by Australia and Greece, as Greece has done with many other countries.” The Greek community of Australia urges Greece’s Government to immediately engage in negotiations with the Australian Government for the signing of a mutual agreement which will prevent double taxation, instead of wasting time, energy and money for the Reconstruction of World Council of Hellenes Abroad.

SYRIZA and Independent Greeks form front over Cyprus crisis

first_imgIn an unexpected alliance, leftist SYRIZA combined its forces with nationalist Independent Greeks to form what they called a “front” to push for Greece to show greater solidarity toward Cyprus.The two parties demanded that Bank of Greece Governor Giorgos Provopoulos appear before a parliamentary committee to explain why he had rejected a request from Nicosia for 2 billion euros from the 48-billion-euro Greek recapitalization fund to be used to support Cypriot lenders. Banks in Cyprus suffered losses of about 4 billion euros last year following a haircut on Greek bonds.Although both parties have been outspoken in their criticism of Greece’s bailout terms and the actions of its lenders, they are from different sides of the political spectrum and their cooperation prompted criticism from other parties.“At last [SYRIZA leader] Alexis Tsipras has been accepted by the only Greek politician that can understand his thoughts so well,” said New Democracy in a caustic statement about the leftist chief and Independent Greeks president Panos Kammenos.“The cooperation between SYRIZA and Independent Greeks confirms that SYRIZA is a party that favors monopolies, since it has no qualms about working with nationalists,” said the Communist Party (KKE).

Australia reacts to Golden Dawn

first_imgGreek Australian’s voiced their concern regarding Golden Dawn’s growing presence in Australia after their intentions to open an Australian chapter highlighted in a report on Dateline this week. The report, entitled Rise of The Neo-Nazis, detailed Golden Dawn’s rise to power in Greece – now the third largest political party in the Hellenic Republic – and their desire for an Australian chapter, with many viewers turning to social media to voice their opinion on the matter. Most viewers were not only alarmed by their political tactics, but also repulsed by their anti-immigrant stance. In the report, Ilias Panagiotaros, Golden Dawn’s deputy commander, said that the Australian chapter of Golden Dawn was growing in numbers on a daily basis with his eerie promise of “you’ll see us in Australia – summer or a bit later, but you’ll definitely find us there”. When asked about their anti-immigrant political stance and the hypocrisy that surrounds it in a country built on multiculturalism and the acceptance of Greek migration, he turned against Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard. In an interview with Neos Kosmos earlier this year, Ms Gillard stated that although Australia believes in the freedom of speech and parties such as Golden Dawn will not be “muzzled in Australia”, she added that there is “no place for that kind of politics in our nation”. Mr Panagiotaros responded with this message to Australia’s PM: “We could tell her to look back a couple hundred years to see what they did to the Aboriginals, and not lecture us about racism and rights”. He also said that the intention of Golden Dawn is to have a presence in not only Australia, but the US and Germany – countries that have a large Greek diaspora. Following the presence of Golden Dawn in Greece, the report stated that racist violence has increased in the county by 30 per cent, with 154 racist attacks last year, resulting in 71 severe injuries and two deaths. Due to this, Greece is currently debating an anti-racism bill – that is dividing the government – to thwart such violent attacks against migrants living in the Hellenic Republic. Readers of Neos Kosmos’ facebook page responded as the program was going to air on Tuesday night with viewers calling Golden Dawn names such as ‘despicable filth’ and ‘hate fuelled scum’. However, some of the comments were in favour of Golden Dawn, with one viewer stating: “The days of leaving your front door open, of sleeping on the balconies in summer – those days are over for Greece. People are afraid to walk in the streets. The police can’t do their job; they admit they can’t protect their citizens from all this crime so they turn to Golden Dawn.” But it wasn’t just Greek Australians who were concerned by Golden Dawn’s growing presence in Australia. Viewers of SBS’s Dateline turned to the program’s Twitter page to voice their opinion on the political party that is growing in numbers daily. Even Greek Australian MP Jenny Mikakos turned to Twitter to say: “Australian Greeks, immigrants themselves, will show Golden Dawn the door”. One concerned viewer called Golden Dawn “xenophobic meatheads”, whilst another said: “they are the storm troopers of the corrupt political establishment”. One viewer said she was “gobsmacked by the parallels” of the situation in Greece to that rise of the Nazi party in Germany, and subsequently, the beginnings and impact of WWII.

Taco Bell and Lyft Join Forces to Satisfy Your Latenight Chalupa Cravings

first_img It’s late at night, and you’re stumbling out of a concert. Your ears are still ringing. You’re in no shape to drive, so you call Lyft for a ride. Then it hits you: you’re starving, and you need food stat.Rather than waste precious brain power thumbing through nearby drive-through options on Yelp or Zomato, you could simply switch on the new Taco Mode in the Lyft app. What’s Taco Mode? Why, it’s the quickest way to get the driver of your hailed ride to make a detour to Taco Bell for some munchies, of course!Lyft has tons of data on its riders’ requests, and lots of those involve making a detour to pick up late-night eats. Many of those hungry hailers were making a run for the border already, but, as TechCrunch points out, Taco Bell realized there was an opportunity to cash in.With tiny tacos dotting Lyft’s built-in maps, riders might be more likely to come in for a pit stop. To sweeten the deal, they’re dangling a free Doritos Locos Taco.For now, Taco Mode is being trialed in a limited area and during two short windows. Riders in Orange County will be able to use it on July 27, 28, and 29 and then again on August 3, 4, and 5. It has to be after dark, too: Taco Mode will only be available from 9 PM to 2 AM.If all goes well, Lyft and Taco Bell plan to roll it out nationwide in 2018… and Taco Bell will likely be the first of many “special offers” you see popping up in the Lyft app.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The Greatest Grand Theft Auto Protagonists of All Time

first_img ‘Saints Row: The Third’ and ‘Shakedown: Hawaii’ Are GTA on Nintendo SwitchHow Shenmue Paved the Way for Modern Gaming The Grand Theft Auto series isn’t merely a video game franchise. It’s a cultural phenomenon. Since Grand Theft Auto III in 2001, the open-world series has remained one of the strongest properties in all of entertainment. Some love it, some hate it, but there are few — gamers or otherwise — who haven’t heard of GTA.Grand Theft Auto is popular for its open-world environments, its satirical take on American culture, and of course, its over-the-top depiction (and perhaps glorification) of sex and violence. While all of this is true, few speak about perhaps the main reason GTA has embedded itself into the psyche of those who play it: the characters. Specifically, its rotating cast of protagonists. From Italian thugs, street hustlers, and psychopaths, GTA has featured a unique and memorable assortment of criminal leads.Below are some of the greatest Grand Theft Auto protagonists of all time.Trevor PhilipsGTA allows players the freedom to cause total carnage in the virtual streets the games take place in. In some installments (particularly GTAIV), this caused some level of cognitive dissonance. Why would a relatively low-key character like Niko Bellic want to shoot rockets into a park full of civilians? Even some of the crazier GTA characters wouldn’t do half the things players can make them. Then there’s GTAV’s Trevor Philips.Unlike GTAV’s other protagonists (Michael and Franklin), Trevor embodies the pure and unbridled chaos of Grand Theft Auto. He is the perfect vessel for players to fulfill all of their destructive desires. Trevor is certainly not a person you’d want to hang out with in real life… but he’s sure fun to play as in GTAV. He is the quintessential GTA protagonist.Niko BellicThe complete opposite of Trevor Philips is GTAIV’s Niko Bellic. Most GTA protagonists are psychopathic American gangsters who love killing, looting, and whoring. Niko is a peace-seeking immigrant from Yugoslavia who fought in the Yugoslav Wars. Like most immigrants, Niko comes to America for the chance to start over and live “the American dream.” He soon discovers that for people like him, the dream is nothing more than a fantasy.Many people didn’t appreciate Niko Bellic’s decidedly somber disposition. GTA games were always about pure fun, but GTAIV and its protagonist attempted to deliver something with more depth. Players can ultimately decide if moving GTA in this direction was wise, but no one can say Niko isn’t a unique protagonist in the franchise. There truly is no other character like him.Tommy VercettiGTA: Vice City’s Tommy Vercetti is the first protagonist in GTA history who can actually speak. Because of that, it is easy to understand what motivates the Italian mobster. Like Trevor Philips, Tommy is a crazed individual who is quick to anger and violence. However, he is also highly intelligent and is a master planner; even if those plans simply involve killing all his enemies.Tommy Vercetti is clearly influenced by Scarface, “Mister Blonde” from Reservoir Dogs, and even his voice actor, Ray Liotta. His story mirror’s those of the characters he’s based on. Like Mister Blonde, Tommy leaves prison after doing time for his crime family. Like Scarface, he arrives in Vice City (Miami) and forms his own criminal empire. Tommy is another prototypical GTA protagonist that players can’t get enough of.Carl “CJ” JohnsonGTA: San Andreas is still considered by many fans as the very best GTA game. One of the reasons for this is its protagonist, Carl “CJ” Johnson. CJ appealed to a different audience than previous protagonists because he was the first African-American lead. Despite his ethnicity, CJ still had universal appeal because of his grit and determination. Although CJ was still a madman at heart, he is more composed and focused than either Tommy Vercetti or Claude.CJ is also the first customizable GTA lead. Players can change his clothes and hairstyle. They can take CJ to the gym and make him muscular. Conversely, players could also take CJ to the local Burger Shot and let him get fat. Every one of CJ’s actions — from driving, swimming, running, flying, and shooting — gave him experience. Subsequent GTA games would let players customize their characters, but not anywhere close to the level they were with CJ.Michael De SantaMichael De Santa is one of the more unique GTA protagonists. In most games, you play a character who is building a criminal empire or who works for a crime boss. By the start of GTAV, Michael divorced himself from that life decades ago. Married with two children, Michael lives a life of luxury in Rockford Hills. Despite living what some would consider a dream life, Michael is absolutely miserable.Michael is a self-described washed-up crook, but he comes to life while committing crimes. As he slowly becomes more like his former self, he begins to connect with his family in a way he was unable to while wallowing in self-pity. Michael also shines while mentoring Franklin Clinton, who he sees as the son he actually wanted. Michael’s self-loathing can get a bit grating at times, but that’s also part of his charm.Franklin ClintonFranklin Clinton is essentially a younger version of a standard GTA character. He spent much of his youth committing petty crimes and getting into trouble with the police. At the start of GTAV, he works as a repo man. This line of work isn’t exactly getting him where he wants, however. Luckily, he meets Michael who needs him to pull of higher-paying criminal jobs. He also unexpectedly finds a father-figure in Michael.Franklin is the glue that holds the main trio of GTAV together. He is the only one who is able to calm Michael and Trevor down whenever the two get into a dispute. Franklin stays focused on the task at hand and makes sure everyone follows suit. At the same time, he is also somewhat self-conscious. This is due to how his life-long friends and family see him as a “sell-out” even though he’s constantly protecting them. Franklin is a multi-layered character, that’s for certain.Luis Fernando LopezGTAIV is the darkest, most sober entry in the GTA series. That’s just the main game, however. The two DLC expansions brought back the fun, over-the-top insanity GTAIV lacked. While The Lost and the Damned did a nice job course-correcting, it was The Ballad of Gay Tony that truly returned delivered the craziness GTA fans crave. This DLC is fun in no small part due to its lead: Luis Fernando Lopez.Like a lot of other leads, Luis works for a crime boss (in this case, Gay Tony) and is trying to make a name for himself as a career criminal. Luis is the first Hispanic lead in GTA. As a Dominican, I was happy to play a character that was similar to myself (minus all the killing and dope dealing). Luis also enjoyed all of the mayhem he caused, which made playing as him even more fun. We’ll hopefully see Luis return in a future installment.ClaudeGTAIII’s Claude let his actions speak for him. GTAIII was revolutionary in so many ways. Despite that, it still featured the same kind of mute protagonist typical of older games. Claude’s silence didn’t hurt his stance with fans, as he’s often cited as one of their favorite protagonists.What makes Claude great is that he truly is the player. Since he doesn’t have a personality, a player can easily inject theirs into him. He is a blank canvas for players to build on. This is essential for a game that allows so much freedom. Unlike, most other silent protagonists, Claude’s silence isn’t a distraction. His lack of voice is fitting. He’s the perfect character for such a seminal, ground-breaking title.Johnny KlebitzGTA games have mostly focused on crimes perpetrated by Italian mobsters or street gangsters. Because of that, GTAIV’s The Lost and the Damned DLC was a breath of fresh. In this expansion, players take on the role of Johnny Klebitz who is a member of The Lost biker gang. This DLC is clearly inspired by Sons of Anarchy. Fans of that show will feel right familiar with Johnny Klebitz’s adventures.This DLC does a great job of making one feel like they’re truly a member of a biker gang. Perhaps this is why players took a liking to Klebitz. Though he could certainly drive cars, the fact Johnny mostly rode motorcycles certainly made him “cooler.” Unfortunately, Johnny would eventually meet an untimely and horrific end at the hands (or boots) of Trevor Philips in GTAV. You’re gone, but not forgotten, Johnny. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Four accidents clog traffic on I205 northbound

first_imgIn one hour, four separate accidents created a mess for Vancouver commuters Thursday afternoon on Interstate 205. Traffic was backed up for about two hours on I-205 northbound from State Highway 500 to the Glenn Jackson Bridge. The first accident was reported at 2:27 p.m. on I-205 northbound, just south of State Highway 500. A vehicle rolled onto its top, landing in the center median, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn. After traffic started clogging on both sides of the interstate, a second northbound collision was reported at 2:55 p.m. Three cars crashed on the left shoulder near the exit to Mill Plain Boulevard. Another three-vehicle accident was reported at 3:08 p.m. near the on-ramp from Mill Plain Boulevard, also on the left shoulder of the northbound interstate. The fourth collision, involving two vehicles, was reported at 3:22 p.m. on the eastbound State Highway 500 exit to southbound I-205.Finn advised motorists to take Interstate 5 instead, pay attention and create safe following distances. Ramps near I-205 were also backed up while emergency responders worked to clear all of the accidents.Eastbound 500 was temporarily backed up from the exit to I-205 southbound to Burnt Bridge Creek. No injuries were reported at any of the crash sites.last_img read more

Truck buyers are more price conscious less brand loyal than we thought

first_imgAs many as 17 percent of those polled said that they wouldn’t consider buying another truck, citing fuel economy and cost of maintenance as the primary factors for leaving the segment. Of those that have already dumped their trucks, 35 percent switched to a sedan and, surprisingly, only 37 percent moved to an SUV or crossover. This goes against the broader market trends we’re seeing, where SUVs are crushing sedan sales.What we’d be curious to see is how these types of sentiments found by CarGurus translate across different kinds of trucks. For example, does a midsize truck owner care more about their brand than a full-size truck owner? Or is the person who buys an F-150 more of a tech evangelist than the person who drives a Ram 3500 HD?We’ll have to wait until next year to find out. More From Roadshow 45 Photos Share your voice 21 Photos Car Culture Trucks Enlarge ImageTrucks have always been big business, but now buyers are more price-conscious and less brand loyal and that could change the whole game. Emme Hall/Roadshow Truck buyers are an interesting group of people. Among them, you’ll traditionally find some of the most brand-loyal consumers in the automotive space as well as some of the most price-conscious. The truck segment is also interesting because of how quickly it’s changing. What were once utilitarian penalty boxes on wheels are now rivaling some of the world’s most popular luxury cars when it comes to opulence. To help make sense of what’s going on in the world of trucks, has again conducted a survey of truck owners. This time around, CarGurus expanded its sample size significantly to more than a thousand current and former truck owners. What were the takeaways?To start with, the upward march of truck prices is beginning to undermine some of that fierce brand tribalism that we’ve traditionally associated with truck buyers. CarGurus found that 67 percent of buyers think trucks are too expensive in 2019, with more than 80 percent of survey participants over the age of 45 agreeing with that. 68 Photos Go west, young trucker, in the 2019 Ram 1500 Post a comment Tags 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 0 The 2020 Chevy Silverado HD gets a new look to match its capability Around 54 percent of those surveyed said that price would cause them to consider switching brands, with 70 percent saying that they’d jump ship to another brand if their current make boosted prices by $10,000. The second biggest cause for switching was fuel economy, which 47 percent of buyers said would make them change up.One of the factors driving prices of trucks up — apart from luxury touches like leather and wood — is the massive increase in the amount of tech that trucks have seen in recent years. Whether that is something as simple as a touchscreen infotainment system or as complex as Chevrolet’s super-advanced cylinder deactivation system, it all costs money. Still, a slim majority of 54 percent of buyers approve of how tech-laden their trucks are. “With pickup truck prices on the rise, many owners are reconsidering their current brand, or in some cases whether they will repurchase a pickup at all,” said Madison Gross, director of consumer insights at CarGurus, in a statement. “While truck owners still have strong brand and category loyalty, the challenge for car manufacturers and dealerships is that loyalty is increasingly less reliable as a driver of sales.” The 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty gets a new look and more capability 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Ram Chevrolet Ford Nissan Toyotalast_img read more

Economic Output Shrinks for October amid Clamor for Rate Cut

first_imgIndia’s industrial output for October suffered a three-year low, even as inflation reduced, bringing back the clamor for a rate cut. ReutersThe industrial output unexpectedly shrunk by 4.2% year-on-year, due to a fall in manufacturing and capital goods output, states government data.Analysts point to the continuing weak growth while inflation pressure falls, and termed the drop a ‘one-off’ instance.Falling fuel and food prices have helped retail inflation drop to 4.38%; the trajectory of the retail inflation determines the RBI interest rate policy.Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan said that the central bank would consult with the government for an appropriate time to ensure that the economy is within a medium-term inflation target of 2-6%. ReutersFebruary would see Finance Minister Arun Jaitley present his budget, where the onus on a rate cut would be further reinforced to aid economic growth and to reduce the fiscal deficit.last_img read more

Nation pays homage to 1952 language martyrs

first_imgCentral Shaheed Minar’Amar Ekushey’ or the immortal 21 (February), which marks the day of laying down lives for upholding the right to speak mother tongue, is being observed in Bangladesh and elsewhere today (Thursday).The National Martyrs’ Day has also been recognised as the International Mother Language Day by the UNESCO.The nation pays tributes to the martyrs of the 1952 historic language movement which eventually contributed to the birth of Bangladesh as a independent country.The theme of this year’s International Mother Language Day is “Indigenous languages matter for development, peace building and reconciliation”, reports UNB.Walking barefoot to Dhaka’s Central Shaheed Minar with wreaths and flowers singing ‘Amar bhaiyer rokte rangano Ekushey February’, people pay their respect to the heroes of the language movement who sacrificed their lives for achieving the recognition of Bangla as the state language of erstwhile Pakistan.President Abdul Hamid and prime minister Sheikh Hasina have issued separate messages on the occasion.In his message, the president said, “I extend my warm congratulations and sincere felicitations to all multilingual people of the world along with Bangla-speaking people.”The prime minister, in her message, said the greatest Ekushey is the symbol of grief, strength and glory in the life of every Bangali.”I pay my deep homage to the memories of the martyrs. I also pay my deep respect to the greatest Bangali of all time, father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who had led the language movement and all other language veterans,” she said.On 21 February 1952, students and the common people in Dhaka took to the streets in protest against the then Pakistani government’s denial of Bangla as the national language and imposition of Urdu as the only official language of Pakistan.Salam, Barkat, Rafiq, Jabbar and a few other brave sons of the soil were killed in police firings on this day in 1952 when students came out in a procession from the Dhaka University campus breaching section 144 to press home their demand for the recognition of Bangla as a state language of then Pakistan.last_img read more

The Siemens HD Chest provides full HD lesion detection and improved standardized uptake value (SUV) quantification.The technology was announced earlier this month at the European Association of Nuclear Medicine congress in Vienna, Austria.By providing a highly automated, amplitude-based gating technology, HD Chest images the chest and upper abdomen in high definition and eliminates the fundamental problems encountered with phase-based 4-D gating, which can be disruptive and time consuming. Because breathing motion is chaotic, the direction of motion and its magnitude vary from patient to patient. They also vary from session to session for a given patient, and even from moment to moment within the procedure. HD Chest optimizes each patient’s respiratory curve to automatically produce the highest quality PET image. It intelligently adapts to every patients breathing and automatically selects the optimal data range with the least amount of motion and the highest count statistics.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

Ted Cruz edges Trump in Iowa caucuses Rubio finishes strong third

first_img Facebook Comments DES MOINES, Iowa – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas rallied a broad coalition of conservatives around his anti-Washington message to win Iowa’s presidential caucuses here Monday night, edging out Donald Trump in their battle to claim the Republican Party’s outsider mantle.Riding a late wave of momentum, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida finished a surprisingly strong third, just behind Trump, which positions him as the leading establishment choice when the campaign moves to friendlier terrain in New Hampshire.Trump – the brash billionaire mogul whose populist rage and unconventional campaign have upended U.S. politics – fell short in seeking a decisive victory that would have fully validated his unlikely place at the center of the battle for the Republican presidential nomination. He comes under new pressure to win next week’s primary in New Hampshire, where he has long enjoyed a double-digit polling lead.With nearly all precincts reporting, Cruz led with 28 percent, followed by Trump at 24 percent and Rubio at 23 percent. The remaining eight major candidates were far behind and in single digits. Edison Media Research estimated GOP turnout at 187,000 voters, about 50 percent higher than four years ago.Cruz was buoyant and overwhelmed as he claimed victory at a large rally of supporters.“To God be the glory,” he said. “Tonight is a victory for the grass roots. Tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across Iowa and all across this great nation.”At a moment of intense voter anger and frustration with Washington’s gridlock, Cruz campaigned proudly as a Beltway lightning rod. He has been a divisive figure since the moment he was sworn into the Senate in 2013, making more enemies than friends, even among his own party’s leadership.“Iowa has sent notice that the Republican nominee and the next president of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment, will not be chosen by the lobbyists, but will be chosen by the most incredible, powerful force where all sovereignty resides in our nation – by we the people, the American people,” Cruz said.For a Republican Party used to anointing the candidate next in line, all of them white men, the success of Cruz and Rubio was a historic departure. Cruz, 45, and Rubio, 44 – both sons of Cuban immigrants serving in their first terms in the Senate – cemented their roles Monday night as serious contenders for the nomination and offered their party hope of broadening its general-election appeal to Latino voters.Addressing supporters in Des Moines, Rubio sounded a triumphant and optimistic note, saying he could unite the divided Republican Party and lead the charge against the Democrats this fall.“They told me that we had no chance because my hair wasn’t gray enough and my boots were too high,” Rubio said late Monday. “They told me I needed to wait my turn, that I needed to wait in line. But tonight, tonight here in Iowa the people in this great state sent a very clear message: After seven years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back.” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) addresses supporters at a caucus night party at the Marriott Hotel on Feb. 1, 2016 in Des Moines, Iowa. Pete Marovich/Getty Images/AFP Pete Marovich/Getty Images/AFPCruz overcame a nasty barrage of attacks from Trump, Rubio and their allies – as well as steadfast opposition from Iowa’s political and business elite, including the longtime governor, Terry E. Branstad (R) – to unite evangelical Christians, tea party activists, libertarians and other conservatives.The first nominating contest answered one of the biggest questions looming over the presidential campaign: Would the throngs of Trump fans who have packed gymnasiums and cheered his incendiary commentary participate in the caucuses, Iowa’s time-honored act of democracy?Not enough did.Rubio won over many caucus-goers who waited until the final weeks to pick a candidate, according to preliminary network entrance polling. Evangelical voters, who turned out in record numbers, favored Cruz over Trump and Rubio by roughly 10 percentage points after splitting their loyalties in polls over the past month.It was disappointing showing for Trump, a celebrity who had never before faced the judgment of voters and could not overcome Cruz’s data-driven appeals. Winning the Iowa caucuses affirmed Cruz’s traditional approach to politicking in Iowa. He entered the race as an underdog, but methodically built a web of relationships in all 99 counties and invested early and heavily in a sophisticated organizing program.Trump, a New York real estate tycoon who became a reality-television star, had hoped that winning Iowa would force the political class to take seriously the prospect of him as the nominee. Though dismissed by some as merely an engaging entertainer, Trump has tried to prove he is the leader of an anti-establishment movement giving voice to the country’s angry and disaffected masses.Trump hopes to rebound in New Hampshire and then carry his campaign into the South, where he regularly packs arenas with thousands of people.Trump was atypically magnanimous as he spoke for just four minutes to supporters. He congratulated Cruz and thanked the people of Iowa – even joking that he would return to the Hawkeye State and buy a farm. He vowed to fight on in New Hampshire, predicting that he would be “proclaiming victory” there.“We will go on to get the Republican nomination,” Trump said, “and we will go on to easily beat Hillary or Bernie or whoever the hell they throw up there.”The Iowa results should help winnow what has been a sprawling and chaotic Republican field. Eleven major candidates competed in the caucuses, but low single-digit finishes are likely to force some to consider suspending their campaigns.Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee announced Monday night he was suspending his candidacy after finishing with 2 percent of the vote.Though the Iowa electorate is far from representative of the nation, the caucuses began to bring into focus the kind of candidate Republicans are yearning for as their nominee. Both Trump and Cruz campaigned as disruptive outsiders and vowed to shatter the status quo in Washington.Cruz rocketed to national prominence soon after his 2012 election to the Senate. In 2013, Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor opposing President Obama’s health-care law forced a partial shutdown of the federal government. The move made him a hero to grass-roots conservative activists across the country and set him on a path toward the 2016 campaign.At boisterous rallies and intimate gatherings alike, Cruz promised to bring the same insurgent energy to the White House. He talked tough on national security and vowed to halt illegal immigration and reverse many of Obama’s achievements, from the health-care law to environmental regulations that he said were strangling small businesses.A third outsider, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, had a considerable following here among grass-roots conservative activists and briefly led the polls until he began to falter under scrutiny of his foreign policy knowledge. Carson finished in fourth place with 9 percent.At a moment when Republicans are captivated by new stars, two of the candidates who spent the most time campaigning in Iowa, former senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Huckabee, were unable to replicate the success they had when they won the caucuses in 2012 and 2008, respectively.Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky finished a disappointing fifth place with just 5 percent. He failed to fully inherit and expand upon the libertarian base his father, former congressman Ron Paul of Texas, built in his 2008 and 2012 presidential runs. And former technology executive Carly Fiorina could not reignite the promise she showed last fall, ending up with 2 percent.The results also dealt damaging blows to the White House aspirations of the candidates with the most government experience. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who ran on their executive records and policy know-how, each finished with 2 percent.Meanwhile, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, a son and brother of past presidents, entered the race as the establishment favorite but saw his support dwindle despite extraordinary spending by his campaign and super PAC. He ended in sixth place with 3 percent.While the top three Iowa finishers move on with fresh momentum, the Feb. 9 New Hampshire primary provides an opening for a fourth candidate to join them as a leading contender.Bush, Christie and Kasich all hope to do so. Each was in New Hampshire by Monday night to get a head start on campaigning as they search for a jolt to keep their candidacies alive. The establishment candidates are positioned to garner more support from the Granite State’s decidedly more moderate electorate than in Iowa. But the allegiances of mainstream Republicans are divided among the three governors and Rubio.The Iowa caucuses kicked off what is on track to be the costliest Republican presidential nominating contest ever. Already, at least $325 million has been spent by the GOP candidates and their allied super PACs, according to Federal Election Commission filings and data from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.The negativity concerned some Republican leaders here and was a marked contrast from the Democratic race, where Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders traded softer barbs, mostly on policy differences.In the final week in Iowa, the race took a decidedly negative turn as the leading candidates and their super PAC allies formed a circular firing squad to discredit one another in the minds of conservative voters.It sometimes became difficult to sort out who was attacking whom and over what. Trump badgered Cruz with doubts about whether his Canadian birth disqualified him to be president, as well as Cruz’s opposition to federal renewable fuel standards, a top priority for Iowa’s powerful ethanol industry.Cruz used Trump’s past liberal positions on abortion and gay marriage to portray him as an unprincipled and untrustworthy conservative. He also went after Rubio, using the Floridian’s 2013 role crafting the Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform bill to cast him as a shape-shifter.Bush’s allied super PAC, Right to Rise, invested heavily in similar attacks on Rubio, while other outside groups aired television ads slamming Cruz and Trump.It was all punctuated by Trump’s name-calling, as he sought to brand Cruz as a “nasty” person and Bush as “low-energy.”Jose DelReal in Des Moines and Scott Clement in Washington contributed to this report.© 2016, The Washington Post Related posts:Donald Trump under fire yet again, this time for sexist and vulgar Clinton gibes Obama’s skin looks different in GOP ads Obama’s brutal assessment of the rise of Donald Trump Bernie Sanders’ CAFTA reversal pledge worries Costa Rica businesseslast_img read more
