Lucas I was right to ditch Neymar PSG for Tottenham

first_imgFormer PSG winger Lucas Moura says he took the right decision in leaving Neymar behind at Paris Saint-Germain as he hopes to “make history” with Tottenham.The winger saw his game time at PSG reduce after Neymar’s arrival last season, which made him opt for Spurs in a £25 million ($32.8m) in January.Neymar is like my brother,’ he told the Mail on Sunday. “I love him and we have a very good close relationship. It was a little bit sad to leave him and Paris because I like the life there. But I had been there for five years and it was time to have a new challenge.“I wanted to play in another championship and coming here was a big opportunity for me to play in the best league in the world.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“Tottenham are a big club. They are probably bigger in structure than PSG. I am impressed by this and I was happy to come here.“Now I am ready to give my best because I will do the whole pre-season with the team. That is important because here is very different – the Premier League is very hard – so I will be more ready to show my talent.”Lucas is enjoying his shine as he scored twice in Spurs’ International Champions Cup opener against Roma before impressing again against Barcelona and says he has a good relationship with Spurs boss.“The relationship with him is very good. I believe we can have a big season, win a trophy,” he added.“That’s why I am here, to win a trophy because I believe in the team, the project. We have the capacity to make history here.”last_img read more

More trouble for Johnny Depp as Amber Heard accuses him of perjury

first_imgAmber Heard and Johnny DeppTwitterThings do not seem to cool down for former Pirates of the Caribbean movie star Johnny Depp. In a shocking turn of events, Amber Heard has reportedly accused her former husband, Johnny Depp of perjury — meaning he lied to the court about one major fight. In addition to this, Aquaman movie actress reportedly has proof of Depp’s lying.Amber Heard has accused Johnny Depp of verbal and physical abuse in May 2016 and she filed for divorce on May 23. Ever since their divorce, Depp has denied Heard’s accusations and even stated once that she painted on bruise herself.That being said, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s personal lives are currently gathering a lot of media attention, and all for the wrong reasons. As per a recent report by The Blast, Amber Heard has now accused Johnny Depp of lying to the court. The said accusation has come after the Fantastic Beasts movie star claimed that only one 911 emergency call was made on May 21, 2016.However, Heard has produced records showing that two calls were made to 911 on the said night of May 2016. The first call was made at 8:30 pm and then another one was made at 10:09 pm. But it should be noted that Depp’s legal team has also produced some proofs that show a discrepancy in the stories. As per Depp’s legal team, they have CCTV footage of him leaving the house at about 8:30 pm. Johnny Depp with ex-wife Amber Heard at The Art of Elysium Presents on the 9th Annual Heaven by Visionaries Vivienne Westwood & Andreas Kronthaler.Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Art of ElysiumAs per the released documents, the log states that authorities received a call from victim friend Amber, “assaulted by boyfriend, refused to give further [information].” As per the police records, a second call was then made at around 10:09 pm — apparently, Depp’s legal team claims that this was the first 911 call made by Depp’s former wife.As per the records, “Female stated she was on phone with her friend and she began screaming at her husband, subj Amber Heard, Husband Johnny Heard.”Another log also confirms that the actress told the police officers that they were only engaged in verbal abuse. This is the same point which Johnny Depp’s attorneys have also made about the alleged abuse case.last_img read more

Myanmar president Htin Kyaw resigns

first_imgMyanmar President U Htin KyawMyanmar’s president Htin Kyaw resigned suddenly on Wednesday leaving the country’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi without a close confidant and political ally as she faces rising international opprobrium over the Rakhine crisis.The president, an old school friend of Suu Kyi, served as her proxy in an office she was barred from occupying under Myanmar’s military-drafted constitution.His role was largely ceremonial with Suu Kyi calling the shots within her civilian administration, under the self-appointed title of State Counsellor.But he was nonetheless the country’s head of state and a key domestic ally for Suu Kyi within her party.Myanmar’s vice president Myint Swe, a retired general close to the former junta leader Than Shwe, will temporarily move into the role until a new president is in place, according to the constitution.Observers say this will likely make some inside Suu Kyi’s ruling National League for Democracy (NLD) party queasy as, in theory, decisions could be pushed through – or held back – in this time.Speculation had swirled for months about the health of Htin Kyaw, 72, who had recently lost weight and has had heart problems in the past.“Myanmar president U Htin Kyaw resigned on 21March 2018,” a statement on the president’s official Facebook page said.His office did not give many details for why he resigned Wednesday, only saying that “he wanted to take a rest from his current duty”.It added that a new leader will be selected “within seven working days”.Shortly after the announcement, speaker of the lower house and Suu Kyi ally Win Myint resigned from his position, narrowing his odds of taking up Myanmar’s top civilian office.“Anyone she selects as president will be someone she has complete trust in,” said independent analyst Richard Horsey.“That trust is the basis of her being the seat of power in Myanmar. She has no power under the constitution. Any power comes from that relationship with the president.”Loyal school friendHtin Kyaw, the country’s first civilian president since 1962, was widely respected and seen as unerringly devoted to Suu Kyi, who said she would rule “above” him after he was elected in 2016.He has stood firmly by her side even as as her reputation has been shredded internationally for not speaking up on behalf of the persecuted Rohingya Muslim community.A violent military crackdown has forced some 700,000 Rohingya to flee over the border into squalid camps in Bangladesh, in what the UN has branded “ethnic cleansing” with possible “hallmarks of genocide”.The military justifies its campaign as a legitimate response to Rohingya militant attacks against police posts in August.The civilian government is in a transitional power-sharing arrangement with the army which still retains huge political and economic power.The army controls three key ministries-home affairs, borders and defence-effectively giving it a carte blanche to conduct any security operations it chooses.It also has a quarter of legislative seats reserved for officers, giving the military a de facto veto over any constitutional change.Defenders of Suu Kyi say her government’s hands are tied by the military but critics maintain it could and should have done more to speak up against alleged army atrocities, particularly in Rakhine state.Domestically Suu Kyi still enjoys broad popular support but, two years into government, her party has disappointed sky-high expectations of rapid development and economic growth, while the Rakhine crisis has recast the international narrative of the country.Htin Kyaw is the son of a revered poet and helped run Suu Kyi’s charitable foundation before taking over the presidency.According to an official biography, he studied at the University of London’s Institute of Computer Science from 1971 to 1972.In a varied career he worked as a university teacher and also held positions in the finance and national planning and foreign affairs ministries in the late 1970s and 80s before retiring from government service as the military tightened its grip.last_img read more

Gubernatorial Candidates Run the Gamut on Views on Marijuana

first_imgANNAPOLIS – The debate over Maryland’s marijuana laws took the state capital by storm this legislative session, and the issue seems poised to linger there into the future and during the governor’s race.Gov. Martin O’Malley recently signed into law a measure that will make possession of small amounts of marijuana a civil rather than criminal offense starting Oct. 1.The signing marked a shift in opinion by the governor, who had expressed opposition to decriminalization at the January start of the session.A separate measure to legalize, tax and regulate marijuana died in committee.While O’Malley has spoken out against legalizing marijuana for recreational use, the seven major candidates vying to replace him in 2015 expressed a broad range of views in response to a Capital News Service candidates’ questionnaire.The only major candidate currently in support of legalization, Del. Heather Mizeur, D-Montgomery, has touted her plan to regulate and tax marijuana and use the revenue to fund universal prekindergarten.Mizeur also proposed legislation this session that would decriminalize small amounts of the drug, but said legalization would be a “top priority” for her administration if elected governor.“In order to make our communities safer, keep marijuana out of the hands of children, and generate much needed revenue, we must expose this underground industry to the light of day by legalizing, regulating, and taxing marijuana,” she said.Mizeur backed the legalization measure that was introduced this session by Sen. Jamie Raskin, D-Montgomery, and Del. Curt Anderson, D-Baltimore.But most of the focus this session remained on the decriminalization bill sponsored by Sen. Robert Zirkin, D-Baltimore County, and Sen. Allan Kittleman, R-Howard.Democratic candidates Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown and Attorney General Doug Gansler both said they support decriminalization, citing the disproportionate number of marijuana-related arrests among minorities and the high costs for law enforcement and the state.Gansler called the enforcement of Maryland’s marijuana possession laws “racially biased, ineffective, and a serious drain on state resources.”“Our policy on simple marijuana possession costs Maryland millions to arrest, process, prosecute and imprison offenders,” he said. “Millions of dollars are being diverted to enforce [illegal] possession of marijuana when it would be a better use of public dollars if law enforcement could focus on violent crimes and preserving public safety.”Brown, who also said those resources would be better spent on combating violent crime, added that he supports decriminalization because a criminal conviction for minor marijuana possession typically impairs a person’s ability to secure employment or affordable housing.But Brown said that he does not support the legalization of marijuana at this time, as two western states have done.“Colorado and Washington will provide an example of the socio-economic challenges and pitfalls to marijuana legalization,” he said. “We will learn from their experiences and assess whether additional changes to Maryland’s law are warranted.”Gansler, who did not say directly whether he supported or opposed legalization, said that any decision on the matter should be based on the “the health and security” of Marylanders and “not on a rush to tax a new source of income to address budget pressures.”All four major GOP candidates for governor expressed opposition to the legalization of marijuana for recreational purposes, but not all said they were fully closed off to the idea of decriminalization in responses submitted before the General Assembly passed the decriminalization measure on April 7.Larry Hogan, an Anne Arundel County real estate broker and leader of the conservative advocacy group Change Maryland, echoed the sentiment that Maryland should look closely at other states’ experiences with decriminalization and legalization before moving to change any existing laws.But Hogan said that he would “keep an open mind” on the state’s laws despite being currently opposed to legalization.“Destroying someone’s chances of employment and exposing them to violent offenders because they possessed a small amount of marijuana seems unjust,” he said.Gubernatorial candidate Delegate Ron George, R-Anne Arundel, said he would be open to measures that impose civil fines or diversion programs instead of “strict legal methods” for nonviolent drug offenders.But he said he does not believe full legalization is the right course.“I have a master’s degree in clinical psychology and am aware of the effects on the developing brain,” he said.George added that he is concerned marijuana use would increase among young people.Harford County Executive and Republican candidate David Craig expressed concerns about the message any changes would send about the “dangers of marijuana use.”“We also have to consider the way it impacts our state as we attempt to poise ourselves as a cybersecurity, biotech, and defense mecca where top security clearances are required,” Craig said.He questioned how health care issues would be affected if marijuana were legalized and said he does not support legalization or “full decriminalization” of the drug.Charles County businessman and gubernatorial candidate Charles Lollar, a Republican, expressed concern about what he called “the widespread recreational use” of marijuana and the effects it has on users and their families.Lollar, like O’Malley, said he considers marijuana a gateway drug and is against its legalization for recreational purposes.last_img read more

Toronto proposes new rules for Airbnb rentals

first_img Tuesday, June 13, 2017 Toronto proposes new rules for Airbnb rentals By: Michelle McQuiggeSource: The Canadian Press Tags: Airbnb, Toronto TORONTO — Toronto’s mayor says proposed new rules for the city’s short-term rental market, including properties listed on Airbnb, would help strike a balance between the need for such accommodations and the disruptions they can cause to local neighbourhoods.John Tory is defending a report released by the city’s Municipal Licensing and Standards department which lays out a number of proposals for individuals and companies who offer short-term rentals.One proposed change would ban people from renting out homes that are not their primary residences.Tory says such a move would help stabilize neighbourhoods by limiting the number of people staying there temporarily, while also potentially putting housing units back on the market for longer-term tenants.Other recommendations include licensing short-term rental companies such as Airbnb, creating a registry for people who operate short-term rentals, and changing zoning bylaws to create a new land use classification for short-term rentals.City council must vote on the recommendations, and Tory says the proposed rules are still open to public consultation and feedback.But the mayor said there’s a need to address the short-term rental market in the city, which defenders argue brings millions of tourism dollars into the city. Airbnb estimates its users spent about $417 million in city neighbourhoods last year.More news:  Honolulu authorities investigate arsons at 3 Waikiki hotels; no injuries reportedTory argued that those who snap up secondary properties that they then list on Airbnb and similar websites risk destabilizing neighbourhoods by introducing transient populations into otherwise residential areas.He said the proposed new rules, which the city estimates would remove about 3,200 properties from the short-term rental market, could limit that risk.“I think what we’ve done here is we’ve tried to achieve a balance between this kind of availability for tourists and others, and the needs of people for permanent housing and the need for stable neighbourhoods,” Tory told a press conference on Monday.The city report said limiting rentals to principle residences would still leave roughly 7,600 properties on the market.The city based its information on 2016 data provided by Airbnb, the most high-profile platform through which people both list and book short-term rentals.Airbnb said it welcomed Toronto’s move toward regulating home-sharing.Alex Dagg, the company’s public policy manager for Canada, said Airbnb is reviewing the recommendations and plans to offer feedback to the city at a later date.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programsToronto’s proposed rules come after Quebec implemented a law last year regulating properties on Airbnb and other home rental websites.That law requires people who rent out accommodations for no more than 31 consecutive days to have a permit and pay a hotel tax. Individuals who violate the law can be fined between $2,500 and $25,000 daily, while corporations face penalties of between $5,000 and $50,000 a day.Recent data suggests, however, that the majority of Quebecers who listed their properties on Airbnb and other home rental websites are not registering with the province.The province’s Tourism Department says it issued 967 permits for rental hosts out of 2,244 applications in the year since the law took effect on April 15, 2016.There were 19,400 Airbnb hosts in Quebec in 2016, according to the company’s data, and that doesn’t include people who rent out their homes on other websites such as VRBO and Kijiji. That would suggest a compliance rate of less than five per cent among Airbnb hosts alone. << Previous PostNext Post >> Sharelast_img read more

Aussie travel entrepreneurs to develop hotel in Lima Peru

first_imgInnovative Australian travel company Chimu Adventures today announced it is investing more than AU$5 million to transform a magnificent 1920s mansion in the buzzing Barranco District of Lima, Peru, into what it believes will be the city’s hottest boutique hotel.It’s a logical step for Chimu, which over the past decade has evolved into the market-leading South American and Antarctic tour operator with 70 staff.Chimu Adventures co-founder Greg Carter“We’re very excited and believe it’s an excellent business opportunity that ties in perfectly with our retail and wholesale operations, said co-founder Greg Carter, who founded Chimu in 2007 with travel buddy Chad Carey.“The simple fact is that there’s a shortage of good hotels in Lima, especially for travellers who want to stay in non-chain properties with modern facilities and a sense of place, which is the market we are targeting.“To our knowledge we’re the first Australian company to develop a hotel in South America.”Tourism to Peru is on a roll with visitor numbers more than doubling in the past decade, reaching an all-time high of 4.22 million in 2015, an increase of 9.3% over 2014, and momentum is continuing through this year.Adding to the allure, Lima’s reputation as the food and culture capital of South America continues to grow with the well-known eateries Central (#4), Astrid y Gaston (#14) and Maido (#44) all featuring in San Pellegrino’s top 50 restaurant awards for 2015.“There’s a lot happening in Lima at the moment – there’s a really good feel about the place – and when the opportunity came up to lease this amazing mansion and transform it into a hotel, we absolutely jumped at it,” said Mr Carter.“Its prime location in the heart of Barranco, just 200m from the beach on Saenz Pena, one of the area’s best streets, was also a major attraction. “Barranco is a fantastic place – really buzzy, with lots of great restaurants, cafes and galleries,” he said.Preliminary work has begun on the project which is scheduled for completion by November.When complete, the former beach retreat of a wealthy Lima family will feature 17 stylish guest rooms, beautiful public areas, a restaurant and rooftop bar with views of the South Pacific.“We want it to become a part of the community reflecting the best aspects of Lima and Peru,” Mr Carter said.

Tonight We Stand Here and It Feels Like Were Finally Winning Say

The award honored the hundreds of women who were victims of abuse by former U.S.A. Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar over multiple decades. Nassar was imprisoned on child pornography and sexual abuse charges after The Indianapolis Star reported on a pattern of incidences.At last night’s ceremony, the survivors spoke about the experiences they endured in a video that played prior to a series of remarks by current and former gymnasts Aly Raisman and Sarah Klein and former Michigan State University softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez. These women were also among those who provided statements at Nassar’s sentencing trial.Related: These Two Sexual Health Companies Have Responded Differently to the #MeToo MovementWatch the presentation, and read the complete transcript of Klein’s, Lopez’s and Raisman’s remarks at the 2018 ESPYs, below. Sarah Klein“It’s a privilege to stand up here with my sister survivors as we represent hundreds more who are not here tonight. “Make no mistake — we’re here on this stage to present an image for the world to see, a portrait of survival, a new vision of courage.“The abuse of Larry Nassar began 30 years ago with me. For 30 years, people at the United States Olympic Committee, U.S.A. Gymnastics and Michigan State University all placed money and medals above the safety of child athletes. Thirty years, until the work of Detective Lieutenant Andrea Munford of the Michigan State Police Department and Andrea Povilaitis, the assistant attorney general who prosecuted the case, finally putting our abuser away for life. “Speaking up and speaking out is not easy. Telling our stories of abuse, over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy. We’re sacrificing privacy, we’re being judged and scrutinized and it’s grueling and it’s painful, but it is time. “As a mother, I am here to say that we must start caring about children’s safety more than we care about adults’ reputations. And as a survivor, I’m here to say that if we just give one person the courage to use their voice, this is worth it. If one more victim of sexual abuse feels less alone tonight, then our suffering has meaning.” Tiffany Thomas Lopez“In my sport, softball, we typically measure ourselves with wins and losses. Well, the amount of loss is almost immeasurable. Tonight, we stand here, and it feels like we’re finally winning.“There are a lot of conversations in our society that we tiptoe around as if they’re something to avoid. I know in my life, people have looked that way at two issues extremely personal to me: race and sexual abuse. Sexual abuse claims victims in every race, showing no discrimination. Just like Arthur Ashe, I stand so very proud representing not only minorities, but all of us as humans, the human race. “I encourage those suffering to hold tight to your faith, and stand tall when speaking your truth. I’m here to tell you, you cannot silence the strong forever.”Aly Raisman“1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. These were the years we spoke up about Larry Nassar’s abuse. All those years, we were told, ‘You are wrong. You misunderstood. He’s a doctor. It’s OK. Don’t worry. We’ve got it covered. Be careful. There are risks involved.’ The intention? To silence us in favor of money, medals and reputation. “But we persisted, and finally, someone listened and believed us. This past January, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina showed a profound level of understanding by giving us each an opportunity to face our abuser, to speak our truth and feel heard. Thank you, Judge, for honoring our voices. For too long, we were ignored, and you helped us rediscover the power we each possess. You may never meet the hundreds of children you saved, but know they exist. “The ripple effect of our actions, or inactions, can be enormous. spanning generations. Perhaps the greatest tragedy of this nightmare is that it could have been avoided. Predators thrive in silence. It is all too common for people to choose to not get involved. Whether you act or do nothing, you are shaping the world we live in, impacting others. All we needed was one adult to have the integrity to stand between us and Larry Nassar. If just one adult had listened, believed and acted, the people standing before you on this stage would have never met him.“Too often, abusers, and enablers perpetuate suffering by making survivors feel their truth doesn’t matter. To the survivors out there, don’t let anyone write your story. Your truth does matter. You matter. And you are not alone.“We all face hardships. If we choose to listen and we choose to act with empathy, we can draw strength from each other. We may suffer alone, but we survive together.” –shares More than 140 women, including Aly Raisman, Sarah Klein and Tiffany Thomas Lopez, took the stage to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

VW to Offer to Buy Back Nearly 500000 US Diesel Cars Sources

first_img Volkswagen AG and U.S. officials have reached a framework deal under which the automaker would offer to buy back almost 500,000 diesel cars that used sophisticated software to evade U.S. emission rules, two people briefed on the matter said on Wednesday.The German automaker is expected to tell a federal judge in San Francisco Thursday that it has agreed to offer to buy back up to 500,000 2.0-liter diesel vehicles sold in the United States that exceeded legally allowable emission levels, the people said.That would include versions of the Jetta sedan, the Golf compact and the Audi A3 sold since 2009. The buyback offer does not apply to the bigger, 80,000 3.0-liter diesel vehicles also found to have exceeded U.S. pollution limits, including Audi and Porsche SUV models, the people said.U.S.-listed shares of Volkswagen rose nearly 6 percent to $30.95 following the news.VW in September admitted cheating on emissions tests for 11 million vehicles worldwide since 2009, damaging the automaker’s global image.As part of the settlement with U.S. authorities including the Environmental Protection Agency, Volkswagen has also agreed to a compensation fund for owners, a third person briefed on the terms said.The compensation fund is expected to represent more than $1 billion on top of the cost of buying back the vehicles, but it is not clear how much each owner might receive, the person said.Volkswagen may also offer to repair polluting diesel vehicles if U.S. regulators approve the proposed fix, the sources said.A VW spokeswoman, the EPA and the Justice Department declined to comment Wednesday.VW will pay cash compensation to owners who either sell their vehicles back or get them fixed, one of the people briefed on the matter said. Owners selling back their vehicles will get an additional cash payment on top of receiving the estimated value of the vehicles from before the emissions scandal became public in September 2015.Owners are expected to have around two years to decide whether to sell back vehicles or get them repaired. It is not clear whether VW will be allowed to resell vehicles they buy back, the source said.The framework deal with U.S. officials was reached after lengthy talks in recent days at the Washington law office of Robert Mueller. The former FBI director is the court appointed mediator named to help settle more than 500 civil suits filed against VW. The talks, which continued over the week, included all the government agencies and lead plaintiffs attorneys suing GM.Some elements of the settlement are still being worked out and details are not expected to be announced Thursday at a court hearing, the people briefed on the matter said. The final deal could still change before it is officially announced, they said.U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer in March gave VW until Thursday “to announce a concrete proposal for getting the polluting vehicles off the road.”Breyer said in March the “proposal may include a vehicle buy-back plan or a fix approved by the relevant regulators that allows the cars to remain on the road with certain modifications.”A final settlement is also expected to include an environmental remediation fund to address excess pollution emitted by the U.S. vehicles since 2009.It is not clear if the deal will resolve the U.S. Justice Department’s civil suit filed in January against VW or if VW will agree to pay a civil penalty.

Investment in UK automotive sector plunges by a third

Brexit could cost nearly 500,000 UK jobs: study Investment in the British automotive industry fell by a third in 2017, its trade association said Wednesday as it called for a swift agreement on the Brexit transition period. Citation: Investment in UK automotive sector plunges by a third (2018, January 31) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-01-investment-uk-automotive-sector-plunges.html Explore further Britain’s Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders says it urgently needs clarity on the transitional arrangements for Brexit, after investment in the sector slumped in 2017 The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said that only £1.1 billion ($1.55 billion, 1.25 billion euros) of investment earmarked for vehicle and supply chain manufacturing was publicly announced last year.The figure is down 33.7 percent from £1.66 billion in 2016. It stood at £2.5 billion in 2015.”We urgently need clarity on the transitional arrangements for Brexit,” SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes told a press conference.Britain is due to leave the European Union at the end of March 2019.London and Brussels are yet to sort out the details of a transition period that could last until the start of 2021, intended to allow business time to adjust to whatever trading arrangements apply once the UK leaves the bloc.”For the transition, we must see business as usual—so staying in the single market, staying in the customs union,” said Hawes.Due to the uncertainties on the transition and the future trade relationship, “there is a general climate of hesitancy… and its political and economic impact is affecting consumer and business confidence”.The mood weighed on new car sales in Britain in 2017.They fell for the first time in six years, on plummeting demand for diesel-powered vehicles and as Brexit-fuelled inflation hit spending.Total sales dropped 5.7 percent to 2.54 million vehicles, the first annual drop since 2011—as consumers ditched diesel cars for those seen as more environmentally friendly, according to the SMMT.A similar sales drop is expected in 2018, said Hawes.As a result, production dropped by three percent in 2017, to 1.67 million cars.Production for export declined by 1.1 percent, while in Britain, demand declined by 9.8 percent.The UK car industry employs 169,000 people in manufacturing alone and 814,000 across the wider industry, accounting for 13 percent of total UK export goods, says the SMMT.The dependence on exports—at 80 percent of total production, with more than half going to the rest of the EU—makes it all the more imperative, according to the SMMT, to strike a swift agreement between London and Brussels.A government spokesman said: “The UK’s automotive industry remains a great British success story and global demand for UK designed, engineered and manufactured cars and engines remains strong.”The UK is the third largest European car producer and has the highest productivity in Europe amongst the major automotive producing nations.” © 2018 AFP This document is subject to copyright.

Judges to rule on diesel bans in choking German cities

Even if it finds in favour of anti-pollution plaintiffs after deliberations start at 1000 GMT, the Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig will not order any vehicles off the road.But it could open the way for cities to do so in zones whose air is particularly contaminated by diesel exhausts.Since Volkswagen admitted in 2015 to installing software to fool regulatory emissions tests in millions of cars worldwide—the so-called “dieselgate” scandal— nitrogen oxide (NOx) and fine particle emissions from diesel motors have been the top priority for German environmentalists.And the nation’s automakers have been eyeing the courts nervously, as bans could affect 9.4 million vehicles not meeting the latest Euro 6 standards.State governments in Baden-Wuerttemberg capital Stuttgart and North Rhine-Westphalia capital Duesseldorf have appealed the case to the highest court after losing in lower tribunals.”If we lose, we’ll be in deep trouble,” Baden-Wuerttemberg state premier Winfried Kretschmann told news agency DPA Tuesday.Clean air by Christmas?A court decision for bans would “allow people in German cities to breathe clean air by the end of the year,” said Juergen Resch, head of NGO Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH), which brought the original case.Germany and other air quality sinners like France or Italy have for years been in the European Commission’s sights for possible legal action over contaminated air.Fine particle pollution and NOx contribute to as many as 400,000 premature deaths from respiratory and cardiovascular disease per year in the European Union.Some 70 cities in Germany suffered from average annual nitrogen dioxide levels above EU thresholds last year, with Munich, Stuttgart and Cologne the worst offenders.To fend off bans and protect the keystone auto industry with its 800,000 jobs, Berlin has offered a cascade of initiatives, including a billion-euro ($1.2 billion) fund—partly paid for by carmakers—for cities to upgrade public transport and buy electric vehicles.Ministers even suggested to the European Commission they could offer free public transport to cut down on urban car use, although without a detailed plan or budget.The Leipzig court could on Thursday signal an end to such piecemeal measures by allowing diesel bans in principle.State leaders insist the federal government would then be on the hook to help them avoid bans if possible or to help enforce them if necessary.Carmakers slam on brakesSuch nationwide action could include the introduction of a so-called “blue badge” to identify the least polluting vehicles—so far firmly rejected by Berlin.Meanwhile, DUH chief Resch suggests that “a decision in favour of driving bans would greatly speed up modernisation” of Germany’s diesel fleet.Car companies have resisted hardware refits of older diesels to slash emissions, instead offering updates to engine control software and trade-in programmes for newer, less polluting models.New catalytic converters “would not be much more effective” and “would take a lot of time” to install, Audi chief executive Rupert Stadler told business daily Handelsblatt Wednesday.A refit would cost at least 7.6 billion euros, a study by analysts at Evercore bank cited by Handelsblatt found.Nevertheless, even car diehards the German Automobile Association (ADAC) came out in favour of the measure Tuesday in a study of their own.Diesel’s bad image and the prospect of bans have already pushed sales of the German-invented motors into a deep slump, from 48 percent of new cars sold in 2015 to 39 percent last year.Such reputational damage has pressured carmakers into stepping up plans to introduce more electric models in coming years.But after repeated delays from industry and government, Thursday’s case “could be the one that changes the country, its mobility and its industry” for good, daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung summed up. read more

The future of transportation systems

Citation: The future of transportation systems (2018, March 14) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-03-future.html This story is republished courtesy of MIT News (web.mit.edu/newsoffice/), a popular site that covers news about MIT research, innovation and teaching. Q: What are the downsides of the “car-centric monoculture,” as you put it, that we find ourselves living in?A: Cars provide great value, which is why they are so popular. But too much of a good thing can be destructive. We’ve gone too far. We’ve created a transportation system made up of massive road systems and parking infrastructure that is incredibly expensive for travelers and for society to build and maintain. It is also very energy- and carbon-intensive, and disadvantages those unable to buy and drive cars.Q: Can you tell me about the three transportation revolutions that you say are going to transform mobility over the next few decades?A: The three revolutions are electrification, automation, and pooling. Electrification is already under way, with increasing numbers of pure battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid vehicles that combine batteries and combustion engines, and fuel cell electric vehicles that run on hydrogen. I currently own a hydrogen car (Toyota Mirai) and have owned two different battery electric cars (Nissan Leaf and Tesla).

Sperling, a member of the California Air Resources Board, recently gave a talk at MITEI detailing major technological and societal developments that have the potential to change transportation for the better—or worse. Following the event, Sperling spoke to MITEI about policy, science, and how to harness these change agents for the public good. Credit: Massachusetts Institute of Technology A second revolution, automation, is not yet under way, at least in the form of driverless cars. But it is poised to be truly transformational and disruptive for many industries—including automakers, rental cars, infrastructure providers, and transit operators. While partially automated cars are already here, true transformations await fully driverless vehicles, which are not likely to exist in significant numbers for a decade or more.Perhaps the most pivotal revolution, at least in terms of assuring that the automation revolution serves the public interest, is pooling, or sharing. Automation without pooling would lead to large increases in vehicle use. With pooling, though, automation would lead to reductions in vehicle use, but increases in mobility (passenger miles traveled) by mobility-disadvantaged travelers who are too poor or disabled to drive. Explore further Q: You’ve mentioned that how these revolutions play out depends on which cost factor dominates—money or time. The result would either be heaven or hell for our environment and cities. Explain the nuances of that situation.A: With pooled, automated and electric cars, the cost of travel would drop precipitously as a result of using cars intensively—spreading costs over 100,000 miles or more per year—having no driver costs, and having multiple riders share the cost. The monetary cost could be as little as 15 cents per mile, versus 60 cents per mile for an individually-owned automated car traveling 15,000 miles per year. The time cost of car occupants, on the other hand, is near zero because they don’t need to pay attention to driving. They can work, sleep, text, drink, and read. Thus, even if the cost of owning and operating the vehicle is substantial, the time savings would be so beneficial that many, perhaps most, would choose car ownership over subscribing to an on-demand service. In fact, most people in affluent countries would likely choose the huge time savings, worth $10, $20, or more per hour, over low travel costs. Thus, policy will be needed to assure that the public interest—environmental externalities, urban livability, access by the mobility disadvantaged—is favored over the gains of a minority of individuals. read more

In Brief: Pepsi and Coke contain pesticidescenter_img Explore further For retailers, Generation Z is a force to be reckoned with. The post-Millennial group, generally regarded as the 86 million people born between 1997 and 2016, is expected to represent 40 percent of all shoppers by 2020, and currently influences $600 billion of family spending.When it comes to what’s hot—and what’s not—chatter matters. Conversations, both through social media and in person, spark 19 percent of purchases, according to Engagement Labs, a data and analytics company that helps marketers.”You see an advertisement, people know it’s a paid endorsement,” says Brad Fay, Engagement Labs chief commercial officer. “It’s only got so much credibility….The most powerful messages are ones that come from someone you know.”Based on surveys of 6,736 teens over 12 months that asked them what they spoke about in the previous 24 hours, Engagement Labs found that the top talkers were the gadgets, beverages and snack foods that bring young people together.”One of the things we find about Generation Z is it’s an incredibly social generation,” Fay says. While Apple and Samsung create devices that allow teens to connect, “Coca Cola, McDonalds and Pepsi are all brands you typically consume with other people face to face, so they, too, could be thought of as social brands.”But the popularity of some products may be waning with this health-conscious group. The percentage of young people talking about Pepsi on an average day has plunged 49 percent since 2013. Coke slipped 21 percent in the same time period.”Both Coke and Pepsi are taking significant declines,” Fay says, “and I think that is symptomatic of a shift away from the more sugary types of beverages toward a wider diversity of healthier types of beverages.” McDonald’s also experienced a slight 2 percent dip.Here are the brands that generate the most buzz.Gen Z’s Top Eight: 1. iPhone 18 percent 2. Apple 15 percent 3. Coke 14.6% 4. Samsung 12.1% 5. Nike 11.2% 6. McDonald’s 11% 7. Walmart 7.9% 8.
