GM working to retrain employees affected by Oshawa plant closure

first_imgOSHAWA, Ont. — General Motors of Canada says it’s working with other employers to identify jobs and targeted training programs for GM employees affected by the closure of the Oshawa Assembly plant next year. It says several employers have identified about 2,000 jobs that will become open in Durham region in 2019 and 2020.In addition, General Motors has identified 300 openings for auto technicians at GM dealerships in Ontario and 100 jobs that will be open at other GM facilities in Ontario.GM Canada says Durham College will also establish a confidential internet portal in the new year to help auto workers identify job openings and begin plans for appropriate retraining at one of several schools in the area.The city of Oshawa and surrounding areas east of Toronto were shocked last month when the highly rated Oshawa Assembly plant was included as one of five North American GM plants expected to close next year.Unifor national president Jerry Dias has said the union would fight against the Oshawa closure but GM says it wants a smooth transition for about 3,000 unionized and salaried employees — including potential retirement for half of them.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

CPPIB buys portfolio of agricultural land from Assiniboia Farmland LP for 128M

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 12, 2013 7:40 am MDT CPPIB buys portfolio of agricultural land from Assiniboia Farmland LP for $128M TORONTO – The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board says it has acquired the assets of Assiniboia Farmland LP, a fund manager which owns a portfolio of agricultural lands, for up to $128 million.The deal includes 115,000 acres of Saskatchewan farmland producing wheat, barley and canola.Pending adjustments, it is expected to close in January 2014, with the current management team continuing to oversee the portfolio.CPPIB says farmland is an “attractive asset class” for the board because it delivers historically “stable, risk-adjusted returns” as demand for agricultural products continue to grow.The CPPIB, one of the world’s largest pension funds, invests money not needed by the Canada Pension Plan to pay benefits for some 18 million current and retired contributors.CPPIB had net assets of $192.8 billion as of Sept. 30, up from $188.9 billion at the end of the previous quarter.“Farmland investments align well with CPPIB’s long-term investment strategy while also further diversifying our portfolio,” said Andre Bourbonnais, senior vice-president of private investments.On Wednesday, the board announced it had purchased a 15 per cent stake in ORPEA S.A., a long-term care provider in Europe, for approximately $468.2 million.The deal amounts to it buying nearly eight million shares of ORPEA at a price of 40.34 euros per share, or a total of 320.8 million euros, said the CPPIB.It also plans to underwrite a primary share capital increase of up to 100 million euros to help the company grow its business.Paris-based ORPEA was founded in 1989 and provides nursing, post-acute care, rehabilitation and psychiatric services in France, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Switzerland. read more

UN rights chief deeply dismayed at execution of 36 people in Iraq

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, has expressed deep dismay at the execution of 36 people in Iraq in relation to a 2014 massacre during which hundreds of military cadets were killed.“[The High Commissioner] urged the authorities to ensure that any trials conducted in connection with the massacre respected due process and international fair trial rather than be fuelled by vengeance,” Cécile Pouilly, a spokesperson for OHCHR, told the press today at a regular briefing in Geneva. “Unfortunately, this was not the case,” she added. In June 2014, some 1,700 cadets at the Camp Speicher military base were killed in an attack by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, Da’esh) fighters. In the aftermath of the killings, the UN human rights chief had expressed that the “magnitude and brutality of the Camp Speicher massacre was exceptional” and that it was important to respond to the plight of the survivors and families of the victims. At the briefing today, the OHCHR spokesperson said that the executions, carried out on Sunday, were particularly worrying given serious due process concerns and fair trial shortcomings. “The individuals who have been executed were convicted only on the basis of information provided by secret informants or by confessions allegedly extracted under duress,” she noted, adding that the claims of 19 defendants that they were tortured to induce confessions were never investigated. Furthermore, she said that the Court-appointed lawyer who represented the defendants, did not intervene during the proceedings, and made only a three-minute statement before the verdicts were delivered. According to OHCHR, an estimated 1,200 individuals remain on death row in Iraq. Urging the authorities to halt all imminent executions, Ms. Pouilly called on them to “urgently conduct a comprehensive review of the criminal justice system in the country.” read more

Warning: Contains graphic images A Wrexham man has been jailed after cutting off his pet dog’s ears with pliers in a ‘heartbreaking’ case that shocked RSPCA officials.Christopher Griffiths was found guilty of animal welfare offences following a trial at Wrexham Magistrates’ Court.Victor, a tan male Staffordshire bull terrier type dog, was found to have cocaine in his system when vets treated his horrific injuries. His 34-year-old owner was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering and carrying out a prohibited procedure to his dog following the September 2015 incident.He was handed a 24 week prison sentence, was disqualified from keeping dogs for 10 years and was given a 12 month probation order.Mr Griffiths denied the charges and said he had been the victim of an assault. He claimed his alleged attacker cut the dog’s ear off when he was unconscious.center_img RSPCA inspector Kia Thomas said: “When I first saw Victor I was just so shocked as his ears were gaping open wounds. I had never seen anything quite like it before.“It must have been so painful for him. It was just so heartbreaking. It is awful to imagine what poor Victor went through. It was totally unnecessary.”Inspector Thomas added: “Since Victor has been in our care he has been doing so well. He is an adorable dog with a lot of love to give. He loves nothing more than to be in your company and loves a cwtch [cuddle] on the sofa.” RSPCA Cymru said: “We are delighted to say he recovered and is now looking for a home.”Meanwhile, a teenage gang were banned from keeping animals after they set a dog on fire, broke his neck and fed him drugs.last_img read more

Jeremy Clarkson says he will be nicer to new contestants on Who

Jeremy Clarkson insists he is more polite to contestants in the new series of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? but claimed his first stint as host featured “some very stupid contestants who didn’t warrant any niceness”.The presenter will reprise hosting duties for a new series beginning on January 1 after the game show was revived for a string of special episodes earlier this year.Clarkson took over the role previously filled by Chris Tarrant for seven episodes broadcast in May to mark the 20th anniversary of the show, which was presented by Tarrant from 1998 to 2014.Discussing what will be different in the new series, Clarkson said: “I’m told I’ve been nicer to the contestants, but last year there were some very stupid contestants who didn’t warrant any niceness.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––”This time they’ve been – by and large, with one or two exceptions – sparky and on-it and bright and deserving of a place in the chair.”The previous series saw the introduction of the new lifeline Ask The Host, and Clarkson admits he was “almost entirely useless” at helping contestants. Producer Fiona Clark said new measures had been put in place to thwart potential cheats.”With the advance of Google, smartphones and tablets, the management and security around lifeline ‘Phone-A-Friend’ needed to grow,” she wrote in Broadcast magazine.”A small team was put in place to oversee and deploy fully-briefed security officers to each person’s home to ensure fair play.”The extra security had “added a new financial and logistical aspect to the budget” in the new series, she said.- Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? returns on January 1 at 9pm and continues nightly until January 6. Clarkson (centre) with Richard Hammond, and James May Clarkson (centre) with Richard Hammond, and James MayCredit:Matt Jelonek/WireImage “It’s so annoying, because sometimes, you’ll get to the £125,000 question and you go, I know this. But they’ve already asked you and used the lifeline on something like the Kardashians that you don’t know.”He continued: “The only way that you can prepare for this show is to learn the Internet, and nobody can do that.”Clarkson said his ideal question would be about Genesis albums or birds, adding: “It’s one of those little things that not a lot of people know, I know not very much but I know a little bit about birds.”I know a ptarmigan from an osprey, a yellowhammer from a reed warbler. I know how to tell a cold tit from a blue tit, which most people don’t know. But now I’ve said that, people will ask me bird questions and I won’t know the answer.”Clarkson said his Grand Tour co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond have offered him some practical advice for the second series.He said: “They have actually (offered advice): ‘Get a f—ing hearing aid. And glasses. Get a hearing aid and some glasses, you old idiot.”‘It emerged yesterday that the show is dispatching security guards to the homes of contestants’ friends to stamp out cheating in the ‘Phone a Friend’ segments and avoid the possibility of smartphones and Google being used to help contestants.

Intel may delay Ivy Bridge launch by a few months

first_imgThere’s a rumor swirling about that may upset a few people planning on a PC upgrade in early 2012. Intel is apparently considering putting back the release of its Ivy Bridge platform.The move to Ivy Bridge chips and chipset is a significant one because it introduces a number of desirable features as well as shrinking the Core chip die to 22nm. Ivy Bridge also holds the promise of Intel’s new 3D tri-gate transistors, support for PCI Express 3.0, integration of USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt support, and a GPU update to better support DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1, and OpenCL 1.1.The suggestion of a delay comes via Wall Street where Barclays Capital’s C.J. Muse has stated Intel may have decided against upgrading its Fab 24 chip factory in Ireland to handle 22nm production. What he doesn’t say is if Intel is upgrading another Fab instead, or just not performing the upgrade at Fab 24 in the existing scheduled time, meaning just a delay.Another view comes from Timothy Arcuri of Citigroup who suggested Fab 24 won’t be used for 22nm, but instead will upgrade from its current 65nm to 14nm or even 10nm in the future. A 14nm upgrade would need to be carried out in time for the expected release of such chips in 2014.With samples of Ivy Bridge originally expected before the end of 2011, and the new chips appearing in March/April 2012, it seems like a decision to change factories now would definitely cause a delay.As to why such a decision would be taken, it’s being suggested Intel wants to save some money, and delaying the upgrade by a quarter would certainly do that. If that’s the case, then samples probably won’t appear until March 2012, with the launch pushed back to around June.At the moment this is all rumor and speculation, but Intel is expected to announce something officially by the end of next week, so we don’t have too long to wait.Read more at Thinq and DigiTimeslast_img read more

Groundbreaking in Normal Heights for affordable homeless veterans housing

first_img Posted: January 11, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, Groundbreaking in Normal Heights for affordable homeless veterans housing KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Homelessness FacebookTwitter SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Construction began Thursday on a 52-unit housing development for homeless veterans in Normal Heights.Known as The Lofts, the development on El Cajon Boulevard near State Route 15 will offer studio and one-bedroom rental apartments at an estimated range of $446 to $796 per month. Tenants will receive supportive services from the Alpha Project, a homelessness assistance nonprofit, according to the San Diego Housing Commission, which is among the entities involved in the project.The units will be designated as affordable for 55 years under a federal voucher program. They will be available for tenants with an income up to 50 percent of the area median income, which is currently $31,850 annually, according to the commission.“Today’s groundbreaking is an important step in addressing homelessness among military veterans in the city of San Diego,” SDHC Executive Vice President Debbie Ruane said.The project is being funded with a $3 million federal grant, $2.2 million from the city’s affordable housing fund and a $13.5 million loan.The Lofts project is part of the SDHC’s homelessness action plan launched last summer, which will see the award of up to $30 million over the next three years for the development of at least 300 new supportive housing units, according to the commission.

460000 Texas Households Still Waiting For FEMA Approval

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share Listen 00:00 /01:08 FEMA/Bill KoplitzAs of Sunday night, about 460,000 Texas households are still waiting to hear back after registering for FEMA assistance.Since Harvey made landfall on August 25, 305,000 have been approved, according to FEMA spokeswoman Deanna Frazier.She said one reason for delays is that some homes were inaccessible for inspectors for a long time.“We have nearly 2,500 inspectors in the field right now,” Frazier said. “And so, they are working diligently to get those inspections completed.”This is generally true for homeowners. Renters don’t usually need an inspection to get FEMA approval, but there are exceptions, Frazier said.Assistance can come in the form of rental assistance, help for home repairs or transitional housing.“Because these are different programs that have different requirements, each program can take a different amount of time to be approved,” Frazier said.About 82,000 Texas households have been deemed ineligible for FEMA assistance. But Frazier said in many cases it could be due to a filing error and she encourages storm victims to appeal.The agency has so far approved about $825 million for affected households, more than half of that – $460 million – in Harris County, where 425,000 have applied for assistance.  Xlast_img read more

How particles pack in a confined space

first_imgPictured is a sampling of clusters of the Platonic solids, each of which packs densely inside a sphere. These clusters are a subset of a larger collection generated by Teich et al. using Monte Carlo simulations with spherical confinement. Results show a wide variety of resultant symmetries and structures for clusters of up to 60 constituent polyhedra, with implications for a range of experimental applications, including colloidal materials design, drug delivery, and the creation of metamaterials.

Glotzer Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Citation: How particles pack in a confined space (2016, February 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-02-particles-confined-space.html To discern how various anisotropic solids pack within a confined space, Erin G. Teich, Greg van Anders, Daphne Klotsa, Julia Dshemuchadse, and Sharon C. Glotzer of the University of Michigan, conducted Monte Carlo simulation studies to examine how Platonic solids pack three-dimensionally within a sphere. They compared these clusters to clusters of spherical particles packed within a sphere and found that unlike cluster packing in infinite space, within a closed container particle shape is less influential on the structure of optimal packings. Instead, the structures of optimal packings are significantly affected by the shape of the container, and clusters made of different particle shapes adopt similar optimal structures in a variety of cases. Additionally, they found that there are certain numbers of particles, or magic numbers, of a given shape that correspond to particularly high cluster densities. Their work appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Their initial studies compared the densest packed clusters of each of the Platonic solids with clusters of spheres. Cluster packing can occur in various geometries and layers. Similarity to sphere cluster packing was determined using mathematical methods. Of the Platonic solids, the icosahedron had the greatest number of cluster geometries that matched closely to clusters of spheres, and, indeed, its three-dimensional shape is most closely spherical. The other shapes progressively decreased in similarity to sphere cluster packings with dodecahedra having several similar geometries, followed by octahedra, and then cubes. No clusters of tetrahedra were structurally similar to their corresponding cluster of spheres.Teich, et al. found that the clusters of particles that most resembled clusters of spheres typically packed in layers of optimal spherical codes, demonstrating the influence of the container shape on optimal packing structure. An optimal spherical code at a particular value of N is a way of packing N spheres most tightly inside a spherical shell. Interestingly, both bulk icosahedra and dodecahedra packed in layers of optimal spherical codes in a majority of cases even though they are dual to each other, or the faces and vertices are switched on these two shapes. One would expect “opposite” packing, but instead, both adopt optimal spherical code layering, which indicates the container is more important than particle shape. Explore further (Phys.org)—Many biological systems involve dense packing of a large amount of material or particles in a confined space. For example, eukaryotes’ nuclei hold about two meters of DNA that is tightly wound into chromosomes. On the larger scale pharmaceutical packaging, manufacturing, and transport all involve trying to pack the most amount of material within a small space. Furthermore, nanotechnology and material sciences are concerned with particle packing and layering. While the concept of packing the most amount of material in a small space is simple, understanding how particles of various shapes pack is not. More information: Erin G. Teich et al. Clusters of polyhedra in spherical confinement, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2016). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1524875113AbstractDense particle packing in a confining volume remains a rich, largely unexplored problem, despite applications in blood clotting, plasmonics, industrial packaging and transport, colloidal molecule design, and information storage. Here, we report densest found clusters of the Platonic solids in spherical confinement, for up to constituent polyhedral particles. We examine the interplay between anisotropic particle shape and isotropic 3D confinement. Densest clusters exhibit a wide variety of symmetry point groups and form in up to three layers at higher N. For many N values, icosahedra and dodecahedra form clusters that resemble sphere clusters. These common structures are layers of optimal spherical codes in most cases, a surprising fact given the significant faceting of the icosahedron and dodecahedron. We also investigate cluster density as a function of N for each particle shape. We find that, in contrast to what happens in bulk, polyhedra often pack less densely than spheres. We also find especially dense clusters at so-called magic numbers of constituent particles. Our results showcase the structural diversity and experimental utility of families of solutions to the packing in confinement problem. Computational study finds maximum packing density of 55,000 different shapes Studies looking at cluster density provided several insights. First, as expected, cluster density increases as the number of particles increases until the particles approximate a spherical shape. Then, density increases much more slowly, expected to level off as the number of particles goes to infinity. Additionally, there are certain numbers of particles at which density significantly increases. These numbers differ for the different particle shapes. At these particular particle numbers, deemed magic numbers, the cluster density is larger and is greater than the cluster density for clusters with one less or one more particle.”Our results show that polyhedra adopt an incredibly diverse array of cluster structures merely when we force them to pack inside a sphere, the simplest type of three-dimensional container,” says Erin Teich, lead author of the study. “Not only are these clusters experimentally relevant, but they also demonstrate the tightly-coupled relationship between packing structure and the packing environment. This relationship has only just begun to be explored- we plan to tackle it by examining clusters formed by different particle shapes packing in a variety of confining geometries.” Teich, et al.’s results reveal that contrary the hypothetical case in infinite space, spheres are not necessarily the worst packing particle within a confined space, and unlike three-dimensional packing on in infinite space, packing within a confined space depends less on particle shape and more on the ability of the particle clusters to take on the container’s shape. Some of the cluster symmetries observed here demonstrate optimal density and packing within a particular confined space, which has implications for analogous biological and material systems. © 2016 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.
