Canadian cities reveal how they feel about losing bid for Amazon HQ2

first_imgTORONTO – Amazon waded through 238 bids that included promises of hefty tax breaks and canoeing to work to narrow down a short list of some 20 candidates, including just one Canadian city — Toronto. Here’s a look at what some of the other cities who placed bids had to say:CalgaryIn an effort to sway Amazon, Calgary emblazoned the sidewalks across from Amazon’s current Seattle headquarters with messages including, “Hey Amazon. We’d change our name for you. Calmazon? Amagary? Love, Calgary ;)” and hung a 30-metre banner outside saying, “we’re not saying we’d fight a bear for you, but we totally would.” The same message ran in a full-page ad the city took out in the Seattle Times.Alberta’s Premier Rachel Notley said she had spoken with Amazon on Thursday and the company felt Calgary’s bid was “particularly exciting.”“They actually said very, very good things about it and they said that they’ve got a whole new idea of Alberta and that Calgary did an excellent job,” she said.“There’s no question, it’s unfortunate. It would have been great to have gotten that deal.”———WinnipegWinnipeg’s bid included a humorous video starring football star Blue Bomber Obby Khan and Mayor Brian Bowman showing off the city’s best features to Alexa, Amazon’s voice-activated system.When Economic Development Winnipeg heard it hadn’t made Amazon’s shortlist on Thursday it released a playful video featuring Alexa breaking the bad news to Khan. In the video, Khan cuts Alexa short and instead picks up his phone saying, “Hey Google, I would love to pick you up tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the airport.”Bowman said in an email that “the competition was fierce, but our bid positioned Winnipeg well for future opportunities.” He added he was “optimistic Amazon and other companies took note and will keep Winnipeg in mind for future opportunities.”———Ottawa-GatineauOttawa and Gatineau were offering Amazon space in the 120-acre stretch of waterfront lands that are poised for development, 15 minutes away from Ottawa’s airport and close to policymakers.Upon hearing the cities had failed to make the cut, Ottawa mayor Jim Watson and Gatineau mayor Maxime Pedneaud-Jobin released a statement saying they were “disappointed,” but “proud” of the way the cities “came together.”“Should Amazon HQ2 find a home in Toronto, there would likely be significant economic spinoffs for the Ottawa-Gatineau region, and we would welcome those opportunities,” the mayors said.———VancouverVancouver’s bid to host Amazon HQ2 focused on its proximity to the e-commerce giant’s original headquarters in Seattle, a move Metro Vancouver chairman Greg Moore said may have put it at a disadvantage.Moore said he was disappointed to hear Vancouver hadn’t made the shortlist but described the experience as a learning opportunity.“It emphasized the need for us as a region to be working together,” Moore said. “Amazon won’t be the last opportunity.”Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson released a statement saying he was disappointed the city didn’t make the short list.“Vancouver offers much more than just an exceptional quality of life for our residents. Our city is home to a booming economy, fueled by Vancouver’s growth as an international tech hub with world-class talent.”———HalifaxHalifax rolled out a flashy website mirroring Amazon’s fonts and buttons to claim that Halifax housing the headquarters would bring Amazon a savings of more than $10 billion over 10 years.Mayor Mike Savage told The Canadian Press he was “not surprised” his city had lost out because he felt it was “always a long shot.”He said “I’m rooting for Mayor Tory and I hope that they do well” and vowed to hang a “Go Toronto” banner.———Sault Ste. MarieSault Ste. Marie didn’t splash out on a big proposal with lots of tax incentives or “wacky exercises” — though it did suggest employees could canoe to work — to attract attention for its bid because it knew it likely wouldn’t land the headquarters, said Mayor Christian Provenzano.“We were swinging for the fences on something we appreciated we did not have a significant opportunity at getting, but we thought it was important to tell our story about our community,” he said.———EdmontonEdmonton refused to disclose the contents of its bid, even after it was cut from the potential cities to host the headquarters. However, a spokesperson revealed the city spent between $50,000 and $75,000 on its pitch.Brad Ferguson, the president and CEO of the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, said he was throwing his support behind Toronto, adding that with matters like this his philosophy is to root for his country, then his province and then his city. He wished Toronto well, but said he hadn’t picked up the phone to extend his best wishes to Mayor John Tory because “I don’t feel that is my role.”———WindsorWindsor partnered with Detroit to make its pitch to Amazon, which Windsor’s Mayor Drew Dilkens says spoke to the strong relationship the two cities have had for centuries. Months ago Dilkens said he would even be open to connecting twin offices in each city with a cable car or gondola.Moving forward, he said he would be open to the pair teaming up again to court other big companies. “We believe the business case was so strong that we could take Amazon’s name out of the proposal and make it equally compelling for someone else,” Dilkens told the Canadian Press.———MontrealMany thought Montreal had a good chance at nabbing the headquarters because it is already home to Amazon Web Services’ cluster of data services and its competitiveness in the hydro-electric power arena was a big draw for the tech company when it was searching for another home for its data facilities.Montreal mayor Denis Coderre said in a statement that the city is “of course, disappointed” it won’t host the headquarters, but glad that the process had allowed it “to build new relationships and to strengthen old ones with the private and public sectors as well as to reinforce Montreal’s reputation as an international creative hub.”———HamiltonHamilton’s bid for the headquarters reportedly cost almost $467,000. A statement from Mayor Fred Eisenberger said the investment it made in its pitch “a 50/50 split of public and private funds.”After it was passed on, Eisenberger stressed “our ambition will not waiver.” He said Amazon “choosing to locate anywhere in Ontario is beneficial,” so Hamilton was looking forward to working with Toronto “in whatever way we can to support their bid.”last_img read more

For Trump the economy is a potential 2020 storm cloud

first_imgWASHINGTON — Forget Robert Mueller.The greatest threat to President Donald Trump’s re-election bid may not be the slew of investigations closing in on his Oval Office but a possible economic slowdown. And the president knows it.The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell again Monday, the latest dip in the roller coaster markets amid the strain of Trump’s trade war, rising interest rates and worries about a slowing global economy.Trump, who has tied his political fortunes to the stock market in an unprecedented fashion, has nervously watched Wall Street, keeping an eye on the cable television ticker and barking at his aides for updates. And while he continues to talk up America’s financial might, he has repeatedly and publicly rebuked the chairman of the Federal Reserve for interest rate increases he feels could slow the economy.Trump made his feelings clear again Tuesday, a day before the Fed is expected to raise its key interest rate for the fourth time this year.“I hope the people over at the Fed will read today’s Wall Street Journal Editorial before they make yet another mistake. Also, don’t let the market become any more illiquid than it already is. Stop with the 50 B’s. Feel the market, don’t just go by meaningless numbers. Good luck!”He said Monday on Twitter that “It is incredible that with a very strong dollar and virtually no inflation, the outside world blowing up around us, Paris is burning and China way down, the Fed is even considering yet another interest rate hike. Take the Victory!”Throughout Trump’s term, the economy has been strong. And while the president credits his aggressive tax-cut package and deregulation efforts, the gains in fact began under President Barack Obama.Optimism about the economy has cooled somewhat this fall as Trump’s trade fight with China rattled the markets.Fond of citing job statistics and market reports, Trump has appeared highly attuned to the shift. After unnerving much of the global financial system by imposing tariffs, Trump seemed eager to ease anxiety recently, striking a trade truce with China after a dinner meeting during an international summit in Argentina. And when that move only briefly buoyed confidence, Trump set off on an erratic bout of tweeting that rocked the markets even more.First Trump declared himself a “Tariff Man,” promising to inflict as much economic pain as possible — a move that horrified investors. A day later he sought to minimize the anxieties, saying there were “very strong signals” that China was negotiating in good faith.“Not to sound naive or anything, but I believe President Xi meant every word of what he said at our long and hopefully historic meeting,” Trump tweeted.Stocks fell again Monday as both the Dow and the S&P 500 are on pace for their worst December performance since 1931, when they were battered during the Great Depression. As investors turned to an upcoming meeting of the Federal Reserve, its chairman, Jerome Powell, has repeatedly been the target of Trump’s wrath, as the Fed has been raising interest rates to make sure that the lowest unemployment in nearly five decades does not start pushing inflation higher. Arguing that the rate hikes hamper economic growth, Trump has openly questioned Powell’s leadership.“I think the Fed is making a mistake. They are so tight. I think the Fed has gone crazy,” the president said in October.No longer tweeting much about the stock market, Trump has criticized Powell privately as well and has told confidants that he understands that a recession would be perilous for a president who once mused about the Dow hitting 30,000. (Its record was 26,828 in October.) Although Trump is not seriously considering making a change at the Fed, he has repeatedly insisted that his businessman background allows him to understand the economy more than Powell, according to four White House aides and outside advisers who were not authorized to discuss private conversations and who spoke on condition of anonymity.“He thinks his legacy is going to be the guy who rebuilt and revived the U.S. economy. He’s totally focused on that,” said Stephen Moore, a former Trump campaign adviser and visiting fellow at the Heritage Foundation. “He understands that if the economy remains strong, he’ll be re-elected. He’s completely focused on the economy. He does follow the stock market, he does follow the stock reports, he does follow the jobs report.”Democrats considering challenging Trump in 2020 have begun putting forward their own economic plans. But a senior White House official said Trump remains confident in the economy, citing low unemployment numbers, GDP growth and growth in manufacturing jobs, among other indicators.The official, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly, said Trump is watching the indicators closely and is regularly briefed by Larry Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council; Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin; and Kevin Hassett, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers.“The American economy is booming,” Kudlow told The Associated Press. “While economies around the world are struggling, our economic fundamentals are incredibly strong.”Trump is right to worry about how an economic slowdown could affect his presidency. Bill Clinton aide James Carville’s famous mantra during the 1992 presidential campaign was: “It’s the economy, stupid.” And the nation’s financial health is often key to a president’s re-election chances.The last two presidents who failed to be re-elected, Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush, were primarily done in by faltering economies, said presidential historian Douglas Brinkley.“It’s hard to convince the public to give you another chance if the economy is not doing well,” said Brinkley, a professor at Rice University. He suggested that even voters who do not like Trump’s personal behaviour “tolerate him because they think he is good for Wall Street and jobs. If there is an economic downturn, that is going to take a devastating effect on him.”___Follow Lemire on Twitter at and Lucey at Lemire And Catherine Lucey, The Associated Presslast_img read more

UN and South Sudan in joint effort to reduce maternal mortality

31 October 2011A joint initiative of the United Nations and South Sudan is aiming to reduce maternal mortality by deploying midwives throughout the country, providing locals with the necessary skills to safely deliver babies, and improving the health facilities available to the wider population. One out of seven pregnant women dies due to pregnancy-related causes in South Sudan. With less than 100 midwives for the entire country, there is an urgent need for an increase in health workers to attend to the population’s needs.To tackle this issue, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and South Sudan’s health ministry organized a workshop last week to review their joint midwives project, seeking to provide immediate solutions and discuss ways to address the problem in the long-term.UNFPA’s head of office in South Sudan, Deji Popoola, said that a lack of midwifery skills and ill-equipped health centres pose a huge risk to mothers and their unborn babies.“A strong midwifery force with adequate competences could contribute greatly in reducing maternal deaths,” Mr. Popoola said during the opening ceremony of the workshop in the national capital of Juba.“Ensuring access to midwifery at every birth, at all levels, is vital at this moment of time,” he said, reaffirming UNFPA’s commitment to support efforts to help midwives and improve midwifery services.So far, the Capacity Placement of International United Nations Volunteer Midwives Project has deployed 18 volunteer midwives across South Sudan. read more

Fifth of Britons using cooking oil dangerously to achieve perfect sun tan

Andy Millward, an Birmingham-based facialist, said it is surprising that supermarkets would need to go to such lengths to prevent something “that really should be common sense”.  Emma Shields, Cancer Research UK health information manager, said that any tans that happen after using cooking oil are “far from being a sign of health.””Getting a tan is actually a sign that your skin has been damaged. And over time, this damage can build up and cause skin cancer,” she claimed.  The 1970s trend of using of cooking oil as sunscreen is making a modern day comeback, according to a new survey.More than a fifth of Britons are now turning to their kitchen cupboards in a misguided attempt to get the perfect summer tan.A poll commissioned by Asda has found that a fifth of Britons use cooking oil instead of sun cream in a misguided attempt to tan faster. The poll found that a third of Britons don’t bother with sunscreen at all, even though one in ten had suffered such severe burns that they were forced to go to the doctor.Experts said that cooking oil provides no UV protection, and heat up when the skin is exposed to the sun, burning the skin and leaving tissue damage that could cause long-term scarring end even skin cancer.The push for oil as sunscreen took off in the 1960s, when the tanning furore hit Britain and people could afford to travel abroad on holidays, and peaked a decade later.Many people used baby oil, coconut oil and cooking oil to speed up their tans before scientists discovered that UVA rays damage the skin.  This trend still persists thanks to misinformation online, with dozens of beauty blogs falsely claiming that oil will speed up tans.  “Applying a cooking oil to the skin in the hope of promoting the tanning process is also false and illogical,” he said. “Ironically, you’d get a healthier looking and longer lasting tan by using a high protection SPF and small amounts of sun exposure over a longer period of time.”People with red and blonde hair are likely to struggle to tan because their bodies do not produce much melanin — something that cooking oil will not solve, experts claimed. Colin Cable, assistant chief scientist at the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, said that people have long been taken in by the dangerous “urban myth” of using oil instead of sunscreen and that Asda’s move to highlight it is a “good start”.  “Using cooking oil is the same as going out without any sun protection at all, or any clothing or hats. It’s a very worrying trend,” he said.”With all stuff on the web, you have to be incredibly careful and make sure that they are supported by more than anecdotal evidence.”The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has been following the trend of people resorting to drastic home remedies to fuel the culture of “binge tanning”.In 2009, it released a report that claimed Scottish people were using chip fat to create their own homemade tanning solutions.

Column Irelands continuing disregard for transgender citizens is inexcusable

first_imgLAST WEDNESDAY EVENING, I went about the usual domestic chores of an Irish twenty-something (making dinner, tackling the ironing, filling out job applications…). Just after 9 o’clock, the TV background noise grabbed my attention with Stephen Fry’s BBC documentary Out There. This two-part programme followed the eloquent broadcaster as he examined what it means to be gay in Uganda, the USA, Russia, Brazil and India.On his travels Fry met with members of India’s hijra community – a varied societal group that do not identify themselves as male or female. The term ‘hijra‘ can refer to India’s intersex community, sections of the transgender community or other groups. Estimated to number 6 million, and once revered, now hijra are outcasts living on the margins of Indian society. Stephen Fry’s conversations throughout the programme revealed the powerful sense of community that hijra have developed together.Most chillingly, however, was the acute vulnerability of the hijra and how their social exclusion can leave them open to discrimination and abuse.Ireland’s transgender community remains on the fringesUsually, we can console ourselves that nothing quite so depressing could happen in Ireland. Documentaries like Out There shine a light on human rights abuses and oppression happening in distant places, right? Such practices would be alien in our modern Western society. Wouldn’t they?Yet Ireland’s transgender community remains on the fringes, despite frequent attempts at home and abroad to change the status quo. Dr Lydia Foy applied for a birth certificate in her female gender in March 1993 and in doing so, began a legal journey that would last over two decades. Represented by FLAC (Free Legal Advice Centres), Lydia fought tirelessly and selflessly for transgender recognition legislation in the Irish courts.On 19 October 2007, the High Court held that Ireland had breached Lydia Foy’s Article 8 rights to respect for private and family life. In doing so, the Court handed down the first ever declaration of incompatibility under the European Convention on Human Rights Act 2003. The State did appeal this to the Supreme Court but withdrew the appeal in 2010 and the decision became final and binding. Hope that Ireland would move quickly to rectify this situation proved sadly misplaced.Failing to introduce transgender recognition legislationAs of October 2013, six years after Lydia’s High Court victory, Ireland still has not introduced transgender recognition legislation, despite political promises and statements from both FF and FG-led governments.In making outcasts of the transgender community, Ireland has also made itself an outcast in Europe. Ireland is the only EU member state that does not provide a legal mechanism for recognition of transgender persons.This uncomfortable fact has been highlighted by many international human rights advocates, such as the former Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner Thomas Hammarberg as well as the incumbent Commissioner, Nils Muiznieks. In fact, Mr Muiznieks wrote to several Irish Government ministers in November 2012 urging them to implement transgender recognition legislation without delay.This unjustifiable failure to legislate calls into question how much we value our transgender citizens – and indeed how much we value the European Convention on Human Rights, a key treaty to which Ireland willingly signed up.The Gender Recognition BillThis week, the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Social Protection meets to discuss the General Scheme of the Gender Recognition Bill 2013.This is a draft document, not a definite bill. FLAC made a detailed submission on the general scheme to the Joint Oireachtas Committee in September and the independent legal rights body will speak at a Committee hearing today (Thursday), along with other NGOs, civil society groups, healthcare professionals and academics.FLAC welcomes any progress in this area but we harbour several concerns with the proposed legislation. Chief among these is the government’s proposal to force married transgender people to divorce their partners before they can apply for gender recognition. For the tiny number of married transgender persons who wish to remain married, this means a cruel Sophie’s Choice-style scenario : to choose between their marriage and true gender recognition.European countries such as Germany and Austria have already struck down equivalent laws, stating that forced divorce was unconstitutional. A case before the European Court of Human Rights is putting Finland on trial for the same issue.A breach of our human rights commitmentsAlready behind its peers, Ireland is now proposing to introduce law that has already become outmoded elsewhere and that is in breach of our human rights commitments. This is starkly highlighted by the almost unanimous accord on this and indeed other issues in the bill among groups appearing before the committee this week.Twenty years into her painful and all-consuming legal battle, Lydia Foy was forced to issue new legal proceedings in February due to government inaction. Having met Lydia on numerous occasions (and witnessed first-hand both her indomitable bravery and the hurt that she has suffered) it pains me that our government still refuses to help her.Last month, she was recognised as a prominent and courageous human rights campaigner when she was shortlisted for European Diversity Awards ‘Campaigner of the Year 2013’ at a ceremony in London. How much longer will she have to wait to have the simple human right of being recognised at home in her true gender?

Klopp pokes fun at Super League reports

first_imgLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has joked he would be in favour of European Super League because it would mean fewer games and more money.The German manager laughed off the notion of a European ‘Super League’ by joking it would be a boost for his team to play fewer games.Speaking after Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal on Saturday, Klopp batted away the idea of the competition in his typically jovial style.“It sounds really nice because it sounds like much less games and much more money,” he said, according to FourFourTwo.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“I am completely fine with how the league football is at the moment. At least, it’s an idea [the ‘Super League’] that we don’t do immediately.”Klopp also claimed football governing bodies, FIFA and UEFA’s approach to proposed competition revamps are flawed because they do not seek sufficient input from clubs and other stakeholders.“I’m not even sure if somebody spoke about it, to be honest. It looks like all the other wonderful ideas of FIFA and UEFA,” he added.“They do them immediately, they don’t ask. And then you see, ‘Oh, okay, we have 20 games more and not more money’.”last_img read more

Boeing warns of furloughs over shutdown

first_imgBoeing could furlough some employees in its defense, space and security operations next week if the federal budget stalemate continues, a spokeswoman said Friday.Furloughs are not currently expected in the Commercial Airplanes unit, said spokeswoman Meghan McCormick in Washington, D.C. That unit employs the vast majority of Boeing’s 84,000 workers in Washington state.On the defense side, however, “We are looking at the possibility of furloughs that could start next week,” McCormick said.She said specifics are not available yet.“It’s such a fluid situation” because the shutdown of some government functions affects access to federal worksites, the availability of federal inspectors and many other operations, she said.“We’re looking at each program on a case-by-case basis.”Some top defense contractors have already announced thousands of furloughs. Lockheed Martin will release 3,000 employees Monday and potentially more in coming weeks due to the government shutdown.And United Technologies said it will furlough 2,000 employees by Monday, and more than 5,000 if the shutdown continues into next month.Boeing’s Commercial Airplanes unit in Seattle is authorized to certify completed airliners and make them available to customers, so those deliveries haven’t been interrupted.last_img read more

Fiat Chrysler claims it has a fix for Jeep Wrangler death wobble

first_imgEnlarge ImageNo more shaking? We’ll see. Jeep After numerous complaints, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles believes it has a fix for the Jeep Wrangler’s “death wobble” issue. The term, which owners use to describe steering wheel vibrations at highway speeds, has been on the company’s radar for years, but it’s since been the subject of a new lawsuit.While the litigation is ongoing, FCA thinks it’s traced the problem back to a stabilizer. The Detroit Free Press reported last Saturday that the automaker will offer up a new steering damper, known as a stabilizer, to remedy the problem. The newspaper reported owners began receiving notices for the replacement part campaign this past Friday.Owners have long argued the “death wobble” is a major safety issue. At highway speeds, should a driver hit a bump, the steering wheel will reportedly shake violently. Despite the alarming owner-coined term, Jeep told the newspaper it’s not aware of any deaths or injuries due to the problem.The automaker also maintains the issue can occur in any vehicle that boasts a solid-front axle and the problem isn’t necessarily due to a defective part. Per Mark Chernoby, FCA’s chief technical compliance officer, the issue comes from a “combination of [the] design and manufacturing process.”While owners will likely cheer a fix, the ongoing lawsuit has already raised concerns about installing a new stabilizer and called the practice a “band-aid fix.” Instead, the lawsuit called on FCA to make major revisions and repairs to the suspension. Surely, we’ll hear more about how the Wranglers behave after the first customers receive the FCA-condoned fix. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 69 Photos Comments 49 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch 5:13 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Car Industry 2017 Fiat 124 Spider: The Fiata is Fi-awesome 11 38 Photos Tags Share your voice SUVs 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. Jeep Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 12 Photos Jeep,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  More From Roadshow 81 Photos 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 3 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon takes on the Rebelle Rally More From Roadshow Tags Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic.

Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado.

An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available.

Superior court judge rules against Kenai Peninsula Borough in invocation case

first_imgAfter a roughly two-year court battle, a superior court judge ruled Tuesday that the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s invocation policy is unconstitutional.Listen nowThe court case dates back to 2016 when the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly responded to an invocation led by Iris Fontana, one of three plaintiffs in the case. The assembly responded to Fontana’s prayer ending in the words “Hail Satan” by implementing a policy that restricted the invocation to individuals and religious organizations on a pre-approved list.Soon after, the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska sued the borough, arguing the policy violated Fontana and others’ freedom of speech.However, the court only considered whether the policy violated the Alaska Constitution’s Establishment Clause, which states that no law should establish an official religion in the state and that no law should “act as a step towards” an official religion.The court found that the borough’s policy excluded “minority faiths,” and therefore is unconstitutional. KBBI reached out to the Kenai Peninsula Borough for comment, but did not hear back in time for this story. The station has not reached out to the ACLU or the plaintiffs in the case, but plans to do so.last_img read more

Jack Dorseys Square spurts in market debut gains 45

first_imgShares of Square Inc, the mobile payments company co-founded and still run by Twitter Inc Chief Executive Jack Dorsey, soared 64% in their market debut, following a marked-down initial public offering, countering the negative sentiment that has nagged at Silicon Valley startups in recent weeks.The steeply discounted IPO price, at less than 60% of the company’s last private valuation, had raised questions about the prospects of other so-called ‘unicorns’ – startups worth at least $1 billion – that might want or need to go public.A number of tech IPOs have performed poorly over the past year, and mutual fund investors, including Fidelity Investments, have been marking down the value of their private tech holdings.Dispelling some of the gloom, Square’s shares jumped to a high of $14.78 in early trading on Thursday, 19 November, and closed at $13.07, booking a 45% gain.The stock pop came after the IPO was priced at $9 late on Wednesday, 18 November, well below the expected range of $11 to $13 and even farther below the $15.46 price of Square’s last private financing in 2014. It bucked a difficult stretch for IPOs, which are trading down about 5% for the year.Investors wary of Square’s valuation probably waited until the shares landed on the public market to buy, analysts said, and the weak price set on Wednesday, created a pile-on Thursday morning that drove the stock higher.”The IPO buyers have very healthy scepticism about unicorn valuations,” said Chris Bulger, managing director of Bulger Partners, a tech advisory firm in Boston.Despite Square’s 42% valuation drop from its last private financing round, most backers scored a payday. Investors who bought shares a year ago were protected by a ‘ratchet’, ensuring they would get a 20% return, and some early-stage investors bought Square at less than one dollar a share.”It’s still a good game,” Bulger said. “Just in the last two rounds you’re not getting venture capital-like returns for the risk you are taking.”Square’s strong start was followed by a positive debut by online dating empire Match Group Inc, whose shares finished the day up nearly 23%.Tom Donino, co-head of trading at FNY Capital Management, said it is unusual to see a stock trade up so much after pricing below the expected range, as Square’s did.”There’s obviously retail and other demand for the stock, but the pricing seems strange,” he said.He added that “the fact the stock is now this strong will probably quash” the bearish sentiment around private-company valuations.Square raised $243 million in its IPO, money the company needs to cover heavy losses. It reported a loss of $131.5 million in the first 9 months of the year after losing $117 million in the same period a year earlier, though revenue rose 49% to $892.8 million.The debut comes at a time when slowing global growth and uncertainty about the timing of a U.S. interest rate hike have kept investors on edge.Ken Polcari, director of the NYSE floor division at O’Neil Securities, said he thought the low price of the offering, which cleared the way for the first-day pop, was a smart move in the current market environment.”Those particular types of companies – these unicorns that have these crazy valuations – you are going to see some of them become more conservative in their pricing because it makes sense. What they don’t want to do is damage themselves by trying to be so super-aggressive.”last_img read more

Adani Group companies comprising Adani Power, Adani Ports and Adani Enterprises will also be declaring their Q2 performance.In its pre-markets note, brokerage Angel Broking had said that Indian stock markets were likely to open sideways tracking Asian equities and SGX Nifty. On Friday, the IT index closed 1 percent higher on an earnings beat by HCL Technologies and an in-line result by Wipro. Reliance Industries fell by over 2% despite posting better than expected quarterly results.HCL Technologies posted 1.9 percent sequential growth in revenues to $1,722 million vs $1,726 million expected and vs $1,691 million in 1QFY2017, Angel Broking said. The constant currency guidance translates into 11.2-to 13.2 percentgrowth in US dollar terms.last_img read more
