first_img#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 28, 2016 –  Former PNP Leader, former Chief Minister and PNP Opposition Leader in the House of Assembly, Hon Charles Washington Misick has issued statement on the holiday season, reminding that it is a time and opportunity of great reflection and introspection.  The all island elected member said, and I quote… “ Reflect on the events of the last twelve months and how it has shaped the lives of us all.  In that regard we have much to be thankful for as our beloved Turks and Caicos continues to prosper, and be peaceful albeit new concerns about increased crime.   Introspective as we look-back over our own behaviour and actions to discover consistencies and contradictions regarding our calling to ‘Love mercy and do justly’ and to walk in humility before our God.”  Hon Misick expounds by saying that , “as we face a new year,  we will continue to experience triumphs and despair at the personal and national level, and that in it, we must resolve to summon the courage to face these, girded in the faith of our fathers pledging our commitment first to God and our loyalty to country above self and all others.”   You can read the full message at MagneticMediaTV.com.

Audi ETron prototype tackles 85percent grade on ski slope

first_imgAt Roadshow, we’ve explored how electric cars perform in extreme cold and snow, putting a Tesla Model 3 to the test on a frozen lake and driving our long-term Nissan Leaf through this year’s Polar Vortex. Audi, however, one-upped us in late January by taking a modified version of its upcoming E-Tron electric crossover to one of the world’s most challenging ski slopes.Not your normal E-Tron. Not your normal winter driving scenario. Audi The Audi E-Tron prototype’s task was to summit the Mausefalle, or mousetrap, section of the challenging Streif downhill ski course in Austria. That’s an 85-percent grade, a tough task in dry conditions, nevermind the layer of snow that coated the course. Audi tapped Mattias Ekström, World Rallycross and two-time German DTM champion, to drive the E-Tron. And as the video below shows, the battery-powered crossover powered up the slippery slope in an impressive demonstration of its abilities.Of course, the Audi E-Tron used had been modified pretty heavily compared to the stock version. It had two rear electric motors, as opposed to the single rear motor in the standard car, in addition to a single motor at the front axle. The car’s on-board software was modified to optimize its torque distribution for tackling the steep, snowy slope. New 19-inch wheels with big spikes on the tires helped claw into the ice. And for safety, the E-Tron was equipped with a roll cage, a racing seat with a six-point harness and a special belay cable to help catch it if something were to go wrong. 0 Post a comment Tags More about 2019 Audi E-Tron The Streif test was just the latest in a series of demonstrations intended to help show off the E-Tron’s durability and toughness. Audi previously shocked it with bolts of lightning and let us drive it in the Kalahari desert in Namibia, for instance.The standard Audi E-Tron launches in Europe in March, and the automaker already has more than 20,000 reservations for the new electric car worldwide. When not climbing up ski slopes, the car will be configured with two electric motors giving a combined output of 402 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque.While we don’t have an EPA driving-range number yet, we do know the car’s lithium-ion battery pack is rated for 95 kilowatt-hours of energy storage. Pricing starts at $74,800 before options and, interestingly, the E-Tron won’t be stocked at US dealers. Instead, prospective buyers will need to special-order the car.

Tripping up Nike ticks 20 staff off its India roster

first_imgREUTERS/Lucy NicholsonIn a major downsizing exercise in India, US sportswear giant Nike Inc has fired 20 percent of its Indian workforce and asked many others to join its operations in South East Asia, the Economic Times (ET) reported on Saturday.Nike entered India in 2005 and soon found it a difficult market to crack. The Times of India had reported earlier that the Oregon-headquartered Nike had closed around 35 percent of its stores in India, the ET report said.The company subsequently closed its cricket bat sponsorship deals to save on costs. Nike currently operates around 200 stores in India.Asked about the ongoing layoffs in India, a Nike India spokesperson told ET, “In June, we announced that as part of Nike’s move to align the company against the Consumer Direct Offence, a strategy that allows us to serve our consumers faster and more personally, there would be workforce reductions, and that has been the case in India.”He said that the company’s head office in India remains in Bengaluru with two other offices out of New Delhi and Mumbai.The layoffs come as part of a global restructuring process at Nike that will see the company focus on 12 key cities, including New York, Shanghai, London, Tokyo, Paris and Mexico City, to achieve 80 percent of its projected growth by 2020, the ET report said. No Indian city features on the list.Nike, which entered India in 2005, saw its sales fall to Rs 764 crore in fiscal 2016 from Rs 803 crore in fiscal 2015, according to data from the Registrar of Companies (RoC). Its losses widened from Rs 101 crore in 2014-15 to Rs 170 crore in 2015-16.In the same period, Nike’s competitors Adidas and Puma have surged ahead with sales of Rs 899 crore and Rs 878 crore. In fiscal 2015, Adidas notched up sales of Rs 805 crore, while Puma, whose year ended in December 2014, showed sales of Rs 769 crore. PixabayBad demand in the Indian market has affected almost all major sports equipment manufacturing companies. In fiscal 2016, according to The Times of India, Adidas closed down some non-performing stores retailing both Adidas and Reebok products, and focused more on its ‘athleisure’ brand Adidas Originals, which the company said had given it very good results.last_img read more

The rise and fall of Anil Ambani Heres how things became worse

first_img Ericsson case: Anil Ambani guilty of contempt, directed to pay Rs 453 crore or face 3 months jail After the death of his father Dhirubhai Ambani, Reliance Industries was divided into two in 2005 with Mukesh Ambani, his elder brother, getting control of the flagship oil-refining and petrochemicals business. Anil got hold of newer businesses for example power generation, financial services and telecom business, having a high potential of growth back then. From this very moment, Anil Ambani-led companies started borrowing heavily to diversify and create a conglomerate that could generate as much wealth as Mukesh’s refining firm Reliance Industries created.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Anil Ambani is facing worst time of his business career.Credit: ReutersEleven years ago, Anil Ambani was one of the wealthiest men in the world. As per Forbes valuation, the younger son of industrialist Dhirubhai Ambani was listed as the world’s sixth richest person in 2008. Just after a decade, he is now struggling to save his reputation. On Friday, the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) refused a plea seeking the tribunal to direct a group of lenders led by State Bank of India (SBI) to release Rs 260 crore of tax refunds to Reliance Communications. Notably, the amount is due to be paid to Ericsson for which the Swedish multinational networking and telecommunications company has approached the Supreme Court (SC).The judgment is a huge setback for Anil Ambani-led Reliance Communications. As per the directions of the apex court, RCom is bound to pay Ericsson its remaining dues of Rs 453 crore by Tuesday to ensure that Ambani doesn’t go to jail. RCom has cleared partial dues of Rs 118 crore of the total Rs 571 crore. How did one of the world’s wealthiest men come this to the sorry state? Let’s find out.center_img Close Anil Ambani’s RCom was doing fairly good till 2010, the year a non-compete clause between him and his elder brother was scrapped which kept Mukesh Ambani out of telecom business. In the cut-throat competition in the growing telecom market, RCom kept borrowing to remain in the fight. RCom started losing position as the No.2 carrier in the telecom market which was further accelerated when Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio entered the market and completely disrupted it with free calls and data. Today, Anil Ambani is facing arrest due to non-payment to the Swedish telecom equipment maker. RCom offered to settle the case but since last year, things have not appeared to reach any conclusion. Only, time will tell Anil Ambani’s fate.last_img read more

Singing Pastors Celebrate the Legacy of Baltimore Talented Teen Electrocuted in Druid

first_imgOn May 5th 2006, 14-year-old Deanna Camille Green died from electrocution when a ball field fence she was stretching on in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park, came in contact with an underground power line while she was playing a game with a Christian softball league. Almost 11 years to the day of that tragedy, her family intends to provide a ray of hope for worthy students who aspire to attend college to study performing arts. Former Baltimore Colt Defensive lineman Anthony “Bubba” Green and Nancy Arrington-Green, founders of Deanna’s Lyric, Foundation for the Arts, Inc., are presenting a gospel concert entitled: “Sing Pastor, Sing!Deanna Camille GreenThe event will take place Saturday May 6th, 2017 from 4pm to 6pm at Milford Mill United Methodist Church 915 Milford Mill Rd, Pikesville, MD  21208 and will be hosted by Fox 45 news anchor Kia Jackson and Ernestine Jones of WEAA radio. “Deanna’s Lyric, Foundation for the Arts, a 501 C (3) organization was founded to commemorate Deanna’s life. Prior to her untimely death the talented “lyric soprano” was looking forward to attending the Carver Center for Arts and Technology, a Baltimore County magnate school, in fall of 2006.      The event will feature several local church pastors and other guest performers in a gospel concert. Among the Pastors scheduled to participate are Dr. Robert J. Anderson, Jr., of Colonial Baptist Church, Tamba Giles and the Williams Brothers, Rev. Dr. Alvin Gwynn, Sr., Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Baltimore, Bishop R. Alonzo Jones and Rev. Terry D. Streeter, Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, Washington D.C. There also will be a performance by the Milford Mill Academy Choir.      According to Anthony Green, “Each academic year, our goal is to award four $2500 scholarships to four college bound students majoring in the Performance Arts.” Nancy Green said of Deanna, “it was her passion and desire to share her God given talent!  The mission of the foundation is to ensure that Deanna’s angelic, lyrical voice will continue to be heard through the lives, voices and talents of other young performing artists.”  State regulations passed by the Maryland Legislature in her name deemed the “Deanna Camille Green law,” require utility businesses to conduct scans each year in Maryland’s major cities to mitigate the kind of stray contact voltage that caused Deanna’s death.
