Ford recalls nearly 15M Focuses because engines can stall

first_imgDETROIT – Ford is recalling nearly 1.5 million Focus compact cars in North America because a fuel system problem can cause the engines to stall without warning.The recall covers cars from the 2012 through 2018 model years with 2-litre four-cylinder engines.Ford says a valve in the fuel system can stick in the open position, causing too much vacuum, and an engine control computer may not detect the problem. Excessive vacuum can cause the gas tank to deform, as well as other problems.The recall came after the U.S. government’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration presented owner complaints to Ford. About 1.3 million of the recalled vehicles are in the U.S.Dealers will reprogram the computer with new software that will detect a stuck valve, which the company says will take care of the problem in most cases. They’ll also inspect the valve, a carbon canister and gas tank and replace them if needed.Ford says owners should keep the gas tank at least half full until repairs are made.The company says it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem.The recall is expected to begin on Dec. 10.last_img read more

BlackBerry Ltd. reported quarterly sales that beat analysts’ forecasts, extending a run of positive surprises on that metric to six quarters and signalling its reinvention as a software company is taking hold.The company swung to a profit of US$59 million in the quarter ended Nov. 30 from a loss of US$275 million a year earlier.

The company previously said it expects software revenue to underperform through fiscal 2019 due to a change in accounting standards.‘We never use your data’: BlackBerry CEO pitches privacy in announcing smart city offeringCybersecurity firm acquired by BlackBerry focuses on the ‘unknown unknowns’BlackBerry bets on AI and cybersecurity with $1.4 billion deal for CylanceBlackBerry has pivoted away from making phones in recent years, reinventing itself as a security software provider under Chief Executive Officer John Chen. The company offers a range of different product lines, such as systems to manage an entire stable of mobile phones, or to let cars securely update their entertainment systems.The company reaffirmed its outlook for 2019.

BlackBerry announced last month that it’s acquiring cybersecurity company Cylance Inc. for US$1.4 billion, to add artificial intelligence capabilities to its existing software products.The deal is on track to close in February, although Chen said his discussions with customers have been limited since the company only received HSR antitrust clearance about a week ago.”Nobody has said ‘I don’t understand what this is, can you explain more to me?’ They all understood what it is,” Chen said. “They’re more interested in ‘okay, so how do you integrate it, where will you integrate it, when will we see it?” read more

Tim Hortons grows Canadian sales amid efforts to fix rocky relationship with

Nathan Denette/The Canadian Press The U.S. market was a little softer, said Schwartz, adding the brand’s team is disproportionately focused on getting Canada in the right place due to the size of the Canadian business, as well as “everything that was going on in Canada.”The chain has grappled with an unsanctioned group of franchisees who formed the Great White North Franchisee Association in an effort to remedy alleged mismanagement of the brand. The group has claimed to represent more than half of Canadian Tim Hortons franchisees and launched multiple lawsuits against RBI, its subsidiaries and several executives. RBI also launched its own lawsuits against the group and some of its members.In recent months, two prominent GWNFA members, its former president David Hughes and Mark Kuziora, left the company. The group has been fairly silent since late August when it alleged the coffee pots franchisees are required to purchase and use have been shattering and injuring employees. RBI and the manufacturer denied allegations they had changed how they make or source the pots.The GWNFA’s membership is “still well above” half, said spokeswoman Patti Jameson in an email, adding the group has a new president.In the past, RBI executives refused to speak with the group, but later admitted they could have better handled franchisee relations and made more of an effort to engage franchisees, including in building the “Winning Together” plan.“We still have some room to go to work even better with the restaurant owners but I think the confidence is starting to be built,” said Macedo, adding the company’s decision to listen more, as well as give and receive feedback faster has helped it execute the plan.Sales at the company’s other two chains, Burger King and Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen, also grew, lifting RBI’s third-quarter profit.The company’s profit attributable to shareholders totalled US$133.6 million or 53 cents per diluted share, up from $91.4 million or 37 cents per diluted share a year ago. The Oakville, Ont.,-based company keeps its books in U.S. dollars.Revenue totalled $1.38 billion, up from $1.21 billion in the same quarter last year.Burger King’s comparable-store sales increased 1.0 per cent, while Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen saw comparable-store sales improve 0.5 per cent.On an adjusted basis, RBI earned 63 cents per diluted share for the quarter, compared to 58 cents per diluted share a year ago. Analysts expected a profit of 65 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon. The parent company of Tim Hortons saw sales growth at Canadian locations of the coffee-and-doughnut chain as executives say their work to mend fraught franchisee relations is paying off, though more work remains.Restaurant Brands International Inc. is pleased with the Canadian results, said CEO Daniel Schwartz in an interview with The Canadian Press.Sales at Tim Hortons restaurants in Canada open for 13 months or more, a key retail metric, increased 0.9 per cent in the quarter ending September 30, according to the company’s third-quarter earnings report. That’s up from 0.6 per cent in the same quarter the previous year and outpaces the system-wide growth of 0.6 per cent, which includes restaurants outside of Canada, for the current quarter.Tim Hortons seeks to shut down ‘Tim Hottens’ knock-off restaurant in IndiaTim Hortons says it has reached agreement with franchisee after seizing his four restaurantsTim Hortons franchisees say employees are being wounded by ‘shattering’ coffee potsExecutive changes, including hiring Duncan Fulton as chief corporate officer in July, and initiatives from the company’s “Winning Together” brand plan helped, said Schwartz.He highlighted the launch of all-day breakfast nationwide in late July as adding incremental sales and profitability.The plan also includes renovating restaurants — a $700-million investment that adds open-concept seating. The company has completed about 100 renovations to date, and plans to do hundreds more in the fourth quarter.“These improved results don’t even reflect several of the initiatives that we have not yet launched,” he said.Tim Hortons will add a kids’ menu this quarter, he said.The company also plans to launch a loyalty program nationwide sometime in the first half of 2019, said Tim Hortons president Alex Macedo. The program, dubbed coffee pass, is already being tested in two cities and the trial will expand to several others.Self-service kiosks, which are already present at some locations in and around the Greater Toronto Area, will start to roll out more broadly early next year, he said.Tim Hortons president Alex Macedo. read more

Central African Republic agrees to resumption of UN repatriation of Sudanese refugees

“We expect to conclude the repatriation operation from CAR by August 2007,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a news briefing in Geneva today. The repatriation from Mboki camp, in the far south-east of CAR, which was launched in February 2006, had to be suspended in April after the return of some 2,115 people, due to the official closure of the border with Sudan following unrest in the region.After the signing of a peace agreement in January 2005 ended more than two decades of fighting between Government and rebel forces in South Sudan, refugees in CAR expressed a strong desire to return home. Many have been in exile for a decade or more.“With the resumption of the operation, we hope to repatriate up to 450 refugees a week,” Ms. Pagonis said.At the peak of the Sudanese influxes to CAR in the early 1990s, some 36,000 refugees were living in Mboki. Since last December, UNHCR has assisted the repatriation of 13,000 Sudanese from CAR, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Kenya and Ethiopia.Some 350,000 Sudanese refugees still remain in neighbouring countries. There are also 4 million internally displaced persons (IDPs) in South Sudan as well as more than 2 million others uprooted from their homes by a separate conflict that is still raging in the vast country’s western region of Darfur. read more

Huit aliments antistress faciles à consommer au quotidien

first_imgHuit aliments anti-stress faciles à consommer au quotidienTravail, transports, finances… Bien qu’il ne soit pas le bienvenu, le stress fait aujourd’hui partie de notre quotidien. Pour lutter contre le “mal du siècle”, Maxisciences vous invite à découvrir huit aliments anti-stress, pour faire rimer alimentation avec relaxation. Le premier de nos mets anti-stress devrait faire saliver plus d’un gourmand, puisqu’il s’agit du chocolat noir. Nous vous en parlions récemment, cet aliment plaisir est riche en flavonoïdes, réputés pour leurs vertus relaxantes [la camomille en est une autre source importante, ndlr]. Le chocolat contient également de la phényléthylamine, un alcaloïde bon pour le moral que l’on retrouve par exemple… dans le LSD ou certaines morphines ! Inutile de préciser que, contrairement à ces drogues, une barre de cacao à 70% (le plus riche en substances actives) ne présente aucun danger pour votre santé.  En seconde position, nous retrouvons le lait écrémé. Nos grands-mères l’ont toujours affirmé, et elles avaient raison : rien de tel qu’un verre de lait chaud avant le coucher pour une nuit tranquille. Mais les vertus de ce breuvage ne s’arrêtent pas là. Si l’on en croit de récentes études, les femmes qui boivent quotidiennement du lait seraient en effet également moins sujettes au douloureux syndrome prémenstruel (ou SPM). Et si vous agrémentiez votre lait de quelques flocons d’avoine ? Notre troisième aliment anti-stress, riche en glucides, facilite en effet la production de sérotonine, une hormone anti-anxiété qui joue le rôle d’un véritable antidépresseur naturel. Les sources de flocons d’avoine sont variées, préférez celles qui vous permettront de combiner effet anti-stress et alimentation équilibrée. Riches en fibres, ils seront assimilés lentement par votre corps, diffusant progressivement leurs bienfaits.À lire aussiPourquoi le café donne-t-il envie de faire caca ?Pour les amateurs de poisson, rien de tel que le saumon pour calmer son stress. Les poissons gras dont il fait partie sont riches en oméga-3, lesquels facilitent eux-aussi la production de sérotonine. Un régime riche en oméga-3 permettrait de plus, à l’inverse, de faire chuter les taux de cortisol et d’adrénaline, deux hormones particulièrement présentes chez les individus victimes du stress.Les noix. En aidant à réduire la pression sanguine, elles sont des alliées de choix pour les stressés, dont le cœur est mis à rude épreuve par une forte production d’adrénaline. Outre-Atlantique, la Food and Drug Administration, convaincue de leurs vertus,conseille aujourd’hui d’en consommer quotidiennement.Si vous aimez les noix, vous aim(er)ez peut-être aussi les graines de tournesol. Elles sont riches en vitamine B9 (folacine), qui aide notre corps à sécréter de la dopamine, une hormone induisant une sensation de plaisir. Popeye vous semble-t-il avoir un jour souffert du stress ? Non, bien sûr. Eh bien cela vient certainement de son goût prononcé pour les épinards. Riches en magnésium, les feuilles de cette plante potagère, scientifiquement baptisée Spinacia oleracea, améliorent la réponse de notre organisme face au stress.Enfin, pour finir sur une note plus gourmande, les myrtilles et leurs antioxydants permettent de contrebalancer les effets de certaines hormones du stress comme le cortisol.Le 24 mars 2010 à 13:17 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Météo les orages et les pluies torrentielles seraient dus à une bulle

first_imgMétéo : les orages et les pluies torrentielles seraient dus à une bulle d’air froidComme l’a expliqué à l’AFP Patrick Gallois, prévisionniste à Météo-France, les violents orages et les pluies torrentielles qui frappent la France sont dus à une bulle d’air froid polaire. Bloquée en Espagne, celle-ci attire vers elle les nuages porteurs de pluie.Depuis de nombreux jours maintenant, de violentes pluies et d’importants orages s’abattent sur la France. Selon Patrick Gallois, prévisionniste à Météo-France, cela est du à “une bulle d’air froid de quelques centaines kilomètres de diamètre qui s’est détachée des régions polaires”. En restant bloquée sur le Portugal, l’Espagne et l’Atlantique, cette “goutte froide” entre en contact avec l’air chaud présent sur une partie de l’Hexagone et entraîne cette réaction climatique. À lire aussi(VIDÉO) Un radar détecte un nuage de coccinelles de 80 kilomètres de largeAussi, “au lieu de traverser le pays classiquement, les nuages sont attirés par cette goutte froide, s’enroulent autour d’elle et font un peu du surplace. C’est comme une sorte de toupie qui s’autoalimente et qui engendre des pluies importantes”, explique le spécialiste. La chose ne serait pas exceptionnelle si les pluies étaient de courtes durées. Or, non seulement les pluies colossales de ces dernières 48 heures dans le sud-ouest persistent, mais en plus “durant ce printemps, ce scénario s’est répété plusieurs fois”. Les prévisions des prochaines 24 heures indiquent que la goutte froide va remonter en France, accompagnée des nuages orageux, avant que ceux-ci ne se déportent toujours plus au nord, vers l’Allemagne. D’après Météo-France, il faut donc encore s’attendre à des passages nuageux au cours du week-end bien que ceux-ci doivent être moins actifs et donc moins pluvieux. “La semaine prochaine, il semble que l’anticyclone revienne petit à petit, mais ça va se faire lentement et les températures vont remonter aussi tout doucement”, conclut M. Gallois qui, ne peut néanmoins donner aucun précision sur le climat à attendre pour les deux mois d’été à venir.Le 20 juin 2013 à 17:04 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Education Systems Must Embrace ECommerce

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 13, 2017 – Nassau – Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. K. Peter Turnquest said the reality of e-commerce provides tremendous opportunity for businesses, and the Government must ensure that the country’s educational systems allow persons to be able to take advantage of these opportunities.DPM Turnquest said The Bahamas, like many other countries in the region is well connected.  In 2016, the country boasted the following statistics:Mobile voice penetration rate of 95 subscribers per 100 inhabitants;Mobile data penetration of 53 subscribers per 100 inhabitants; andResidential fixed broadband penetration of 74 subscribers per 100 inhabitants.He recalled the days when persons had to pay a bill, they would have to drive to the location and stand in a long line, or if they wanted to send money to a loved one, they would have to drive to the bank and standing on a long line.“Now, with the advancements in technology such as mobile banking and e-transactions this can all be done from the comfort of your chair in your office or simply by using your mobile phone,” the DPM said at the International Telecommunications Union’s Global Symposium of Regulators held at the Atlantis Resort, Tuesday, July 11, 2017.He explained that as an entrepreneur, he is always pleased to see businesses embracing technology to reinvent themselves.“In The Bahamas, I have witnessed the courier industry move from simple face to face interactions to integrated e-commerce systems which utilise technology to track packages, send notifications, interact with customers and receive payments.  This is progress.”He noted however, that while the new advances in technology are important and can provide tremendous opportunities for growth and development, everyone should also be aware of address potential threats.“Just a few years ago in The Bahamas, a local business establishment reported that its website was hacked.  The perpetrators held the business’ online portal for ransom in an attempt to extort funding.”DPM Turnquest added that around the world, there have been similar attacks and hackings at institutions which form the backbone of any economy such as Financial Institutions, Central Banks and electricity companies where in some cases, information is lost, potentially forever, or stolen and publicly released.He said the G7s 2017 Communique from Finance Ministers paragraphs 14 and 15 highlight the importance of mitigation of Cyber Attacks.  The paragraphs read:“In light of the increasing digitalisation of financial services and the evolving cyber threats landscape, it is important to pursue effective approaches for assessment of cyber security at the financial firm and sector level as well….“We recognise that cyber incidents represent a growing threat for our economies and that appropriate economy-wide policy responses are needed.  No point of cyberspace can be absolutely secure as long as cyber threats persist in the surrounding environment.”The DPM explained that as these attacks become more frequent, they severely damage the level of trust placed on our institutions, industry and even technology itself, resulting in losses to economies.“No investor is interested in trading with a country or depositing funds in a financial institution prone to cyber attacks.  We must jealously protect our digital footprint and ensure the highest level of data protection available.”Story by: Llonella GilbertPress Release: BISPhoto Credit: Jonesbahamas Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Fraud leader sentenced to four years in prison

first_imgA 61-year-old California man was sentenced Thursday for organizing a fraud ring that attempted to use stolen identities to make cash withdrawals from banks in Auburn and Portland.Armon Leon Maiden, of Inglewood, Calif., received four years in prison and four years on supervised release following his conviction on charges of aggravated identity theft and bank fraud, according to a news bulletin issued by the US Attorney’s Office.Maiden provided his co-conspirators with fake checks and other documents so that they could travel to banks and use the false identities to draw from compromised accounts, according to the release. They landed at Sea-Tac Airport on Nov. 13, 2008, and worked their way south, stopping at a Wells Fargo in Auburn and another in Portland. A second attempt at a Portland Wells Fargo was made a day later. In each case, bank tellers refused to hand over the money.

It’s currently our top-rated noise-canceling headphone, edging out the Bose models on some key points. Best under $200 Best newcomer Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 For many years, Bose was the gold standard for noise-cancelling headphones. But other companies have steadily chipped away at Bose’s lead and now it’s a competitive category with plenty of compelling noise-cancelling options at different prices. I’ve collected the best ones below, all of which I’ve fully reviewed or used hands-on over a period of time. I’ll be updating this list as more top noise-cancelling headphones are released. Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site. Read more: Best true wireless earbuds of 2019 Excellent for making calls $228 at Amazon Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier Apple JBL Live 650BTNC Sarah Tew/CNET When Bose released its new flagship Noise-Cancelling 700 Headphones it didn’t drop the QuietComfort 35 II from its headphone line up and it remains a top noise-cancelling headphone. While I think the 700 performs better overall, there are people who prefer the QuietComfort 35 II. It frequently goes on sale for less than its price so definitely look for it at a discount.   Sarah Tew/CNET Best from Apple 0 Read AKG N60NC Wireless review Bose QuietComfort 35 II When Jabra first announced its new Elite 85h ($300, £280 or about AU$435 converted) over-ear premium wireless headphones, it touted how it would be equipped with always-on (hands-free) voice assistant control using Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant. Alas, that feature didn’t make it into the final product — apparently it affected battery life too much — but the Elite 85h is nevertheless an excellent noise-canceling headphone that sounds great, is comfortable to wear and also works well as a headset for making calls.

Alas, they cost $400, but they’re a strong all-around performer. • Sarah Tew/CNET While they aren’t water-resistant, Sony’s new WF-1000XM3 true wireless earphones feature excellent sound and something you won’t find in Apple’s AirPods: active noise cancelation. At $230, they’re not cheap, but they are among the best new true wireless earphones of 2019.

But if you’re looking for something a little more compact, the AKG N60NC is an excellent on-ear headphone that also happens to feature active noise cancelation.  $280 at Amazon Most compact Tags Sarah Tew/CNET Beats Studio3 Wireless A lot of people don’t think of the Beats Studio3 Wireless as a noise-cancelling headphone but it does feature active noise-cancelling and impressive sound. It’s a little bit of an underrated headphone and now that it’s been out for a while it sells for less than its list price and sometimes significantly less. Read Sony WF-1000XM3 review Truth be told this is the headphone I usually take with me on plane trips. It takes up very little room in a bag and is good for watching in-flight movies, whether they be on the airline’s in-flight entertainment system or on your own device. Just don’t forget your headphone adapter dongle if you have a phone or tablet that’s missing the headphone jack. Note that this headphone has been out for a while. Since it’s a wired model, it’s unclear whether Bose will update it, but look for it on sale.    Sarah Tew/CNET If you can’t afford some of the premium models on this list, a headphone like the Sennheiser HD 4.50. It offers great sound and a decent noise-cancelling feature in an attractive, comfortable design that often sells for less than $150.  Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9 (3rd Gen) Bang & Olufsen’s Beoplay H9 doesn’t get mentioned much in the discussion of top noise-cancelling headphones because it’s really pricey at $500. The latest 3rd-generation version has been upgraded in a few significant ways that make it better than the earlier H9i. Battery life has improved to 25 hours, there’s now a dedicated button for your voice assistant, the padding on the ear cushions and headband is cushier and the touch controls have been tweaked.   AKG N60NC While its noise-canceling feature and comfort levels aren’t quite on par with competing models from Bose and Sony, JBL’s Live 650BTNC ($160) measures up well in terms of sound. It’s worth considering if you don’t want to spend $300 or more on a noise-canceling headphone.

His original Spider-Man trilogy is a soaring, deeply emotional blend of New York heroism and carefully observed character study on the effect that heroism has on a flawed but good-natured young adult. Watching these movies may actually turn you off of the new ones, and make you wish that Spider-Man 4 comic was real.Iron ManFor better or worse, Spider-Man’s whole angle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that he’s enamored with Tony Stark as a father figure.

So refresh yourself on what all the fuss is about by rewatching the first Iron Man movie that made all of us want to be like Tony, and that started the MCU in the first place.The Breakfast ClubBy focusing more squarely on Peter’s teenage years, the MCU Spider-Man movies recall the classic 1980s high school films of John Hughes. And for my money the best of that whole bunch is The Breakfast Club, which Spider-Man: Homecoming directly referenced through a cast photo. Watching these archetypes work out their issues as real people over a weekend detention is still as relevant now as it was decades ago.NightcrawlerFar From Home’s marketing is playing coy about whether or not Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is a villain like he is in the comics, but come on. No matter how it shakes out though, if you want to see Gyllenhaal as a compelling villain, watch him play the American Psycho-esque ambulance chasing freelance news videographer Louis Bloom in the delightfully sociopathic thriller Nightcrawler.Italian Spider-ManAnother Spider-Man film that’ll probably just make this one look worse, Italian Spider-Man is a hilariously specific parody of weird 60s Italian action movies as well as foreign movies from that period that grossly mistranslated American superheroes. Originally just a trailer, it eventually become a ten-episode miniseries. Spider-Man may go to Europe in Far From Home, but he’ll never be Italian Spider-Man.National Lampoon’s European VacationIf you want to watch a comedy about a European vacation that goes awry but without the web-slinging, check out National Lampoon’s European Vacation. While not a classic like the original, it’s always fun to remember Chevy Chase before he become a complete lost cause. And the directors of the recent Vacation reboot, Jonathan Michael Goldstein and John Francis Daley, also co-wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming.Spider-Man VRBefore watching Spider-Man, why not be Spider-Man is this new virtual experiences out now for free on pretty much all VR headsets just in time for the movie. It’s seems like just yesterday we were all gushing over the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but now it’s time to watch another, whiter Spider-Man movie in theaters. Following up on the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home sees Peter Parker trying to take a vacation but still getting wrapped up in superhero antics with Nick Fury and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio. Takes me back to my college years of starting parody Spider-Man frats.Watch these movies before Spider-Man: Far From Home.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more
