UK automotive sector benefits from regional growth fund

Bentley, Calsonic Kansei, Lotus, Universal Engineering and Zytec are just some of the vehicle manufacturers and automotive  supply chain companies that have been confirmed in a list of over 100 companies from across the UK that will receive government support in the second round of the Regional Growth Fund (RGF) allocation.The £950m second wave of funding, follows the initial round of announcements made in April this year. Organisations are awarded funding based on the potential for job creation and local community-based sustainable economic growth.“Confirmation that these automotive companies will benefit from government’s Regional Growth Fund signifies further confidence from government in the sector’s ability to sustain economic growth through investment in careers and skills,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “Industry will work collaboratively with government to maximise the investments made, building expertise and strengthening competitiveness, whilst raising awareness of the increasing job opportunities available.”Of the 201,000 jobs created or protected, around 37,000 will be directly created jobs, and more than 164,000 will be in the supply chain. Government investment will support nearly £6 billion of private investment secured by the successful projects.Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said, “I am delighted to be able to announce this boost to business, which will jump start growth and create jobs that last in the places that really need it.“This targeted support for businesses across the country allows them to expand and create jobs. It unlocks private sector investment – with at least £5 put in for every £1 of public money.”The RGF is a £1.4bn fund which is designed to encourage enterprise, growth and jobs in the private sector and support areas and communities that are dependent on the public sector.

The Taoiseach indicated his concern that nothing should happen to put the Good Friday Agreement at risk and the challenge that this agreement will bring.“He also noted the absence of any nationalist voice in Westminster following the election.”Kenny said that both he and May were of the belief that an executive in the North should be formed as soon as possible. It is now nearly three months since the Northern election and exploratory discussions between parties are set to take place tomorrow.The statement added that Kenny suggested May should meet Kenny’s successor Leo Varadkar.“On Brexit, they noted that negotiations were scheduled to begin, as previously planned, later this month, with the Taoiseach reiterating Irish concerns.“The Taoiseach stated that there should be an early meeting between the Prime Minister and his successor Leo Varadkar and wished her well in the challenges that now lie ahead.”A spokesperson for 10 Downing Street said:“The Prime Minister explained that she is working towards a confidence and supply deal with the DUP which would provide stability and certainty for the UK going forward.“They confirmed their joint commitment to restoring a Northern Ireland Executive as soon as possible and agreed that both countries would continue to engage closely to bring about political stability in Northern Ireland. The Prime Minister reiterated that the Government’s approach and objectives in the forthcoming talks to re-establish the Northern Ireland Executive remained unchanged.“The two leaders spoke about their willingness to continue close cooperation as the UK embarks on leaving the European Union, with no return to a hard border.”Read: Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil neck and neck in latest poll Jun 11th 2017, 1:18 PM last_img read more

Economic crisis good for the environment

first_imgThe economic crisis has had at least one positive side effect for Thessaloniki as the quality of air in the northern port city has improved vastly thanks largely to fewer people using their cars and homeowners turning on their oil-fired boilers for shorter periods. According to statistics made public by the Thessaloniki Municipality’s environmental department, the number of airborne particles decreased by 16 per cent last year. All monitoring stations reported pollution levels that were within the limits prescribed by the European Union, according to the municipality’s chief environmental officer, Maximos Petrakakis. The improvement in air quality has been mainly attributed to fewer residents using their cars – traffic is estimated to have dropped by 25 per cent – and a reduction in the use of heating oil. “Declining demand also led to a reduction in industrial output and the closure of some businesses,” said Petrakakis. “The recession has led to a reduction in emissions from the three key sources: transportation, heating and industry.” Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

John Boyega is a Giant Nerd And Thats Why We Love Him

first_img Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have Leaked’Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img Michael B. Jordan isn’t the only weeb on the block. John Boyega, star of Attack the Block, Pacific Rim: Uprising, and the new Star Wars trilogy, has an impressive nerd pedigree of his own. Promoting an appearance at Awesome Con this week, Boyega regaled press with his love of sci-fi, Godzilla, video games, and all things anime.Though he admitted he wasn’t a huge fan of conventions before stardom—the long lines were off-putting—Boyega did cop to being a bit of a magpie. In addition to a lightsaber collection, he also has a stash of anime figures. “Bloody hell. I have Dragon Ball Z figures; I have Naruto figures. One Punch Man. I’m a nerd—I just do it right. Oh yeah, [I’m a] big time nerd.”Asked what his go-to cosplay would be, Boyega barely hesitated with his answer. “I’d probably be Sasuke from Naruto. I’d love to do that cosplay.”That excitement extends to his film roles too. From fighting off the First Order to fending off an inner-city alien invasion to wrestling with kaiju in jaegers, Boyega said he’s always been drawn to sci-fi as a genre. “I just thought if I wanted to be in a film, I’ve always wanted to enjoy and be part of it in a very unique way,” he said. “I’ve wanted to play characters that are important to the story and at the forefront. Obviously, not just specific to Star Wars or Pacific Rim. I just wanted to be involved in sci-fi.”For Pacific Rim, Boyega’s interest started with the first film. “Fundamentally, I was one of the fans who was questioning whether a sequel was going to happen, and whether Guillermo del Toro would take the helm. When I heard Legendary had plans for it in the future, I was excited like everybody else.” But for all the monsters that Boyega tussles with in the film, he did express an itch to take on the ultimate grandaddy of kaiju: Godzilla.“I think it’d be cool to see a spectacle like that. I would definitely choose Godzilla for sure. I’d wanna know how they’d take him down because it’s so big. What kind of new advanced weapons could take something like that down.”As for all the fame that comes with Star Wars, Boyega says he’s most excited at being a playable character in Star Wars Battlefront II. “It’s kind of mad because I’ve always followed the Star Wars video games. But I didn’t think I would be a playable character. It’s strange! They really get my face and my movement…That for me is one of the perks of the job. There’s something about killing myself in the game that’s always going to be a bit creepy but…you know.” He was understandably more tight-lipped on the as yet untitled Star Wars Episode IX, which starts filming in July. “They’ve officially given us a note to start training soon. I think Episode IX, regardless of where the story goes—and I haven’t read it yet!—but I think it’s gonna be all-out war. I know I’m gonna have to work out and train for that.”Boyega will be appearing at Awesome Con this Saturday and Sunday, where you can see him in the flesh. And he’s not afraid of diving deep with fans about the deeper Star Wars universe. “I love getting into discussions with fans when I meet them. That element to me, that’s what really makes it a dream. I grew up on the Force Unleashed video games. I read the Expanded Universe comic books. I done all of that. To be able to discuss that with fans and tell them how it feels as a genuine fan is a cool thing.”last_img read more

Beaches Resort Recruits Over One Hundred Summer Interns

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, July 13, 2017 – Providenciales – Over 100 enthusiastic students have been selected to join  the  Beaches Turks and Caicos Resorts Villages and Spa  summer intern program which is a part of the company’s work study program aimed at providing students with work experience in the hospitality industry.The new interns were selected following a rigorous recruitment exercise and have since been placed in various departments within the company working in Public Relations, Cost Control, Environmental Health Services and Concierge just to name a few.The initiative is part of the company’s long standing commitment to assisting in the growth and development of the youth of the Turks and Caicos Islands providing practical experience to those who wish to venture into hospitality and related fields.Interns range from high school graduates to college students and include first time interns and returnees.Deleria Simms, assistant human Resources manager for Beaches TCI said the program has been very successful over the years. “We recruited a total of 106 interns.  Our goal is to introduce the students to the hospitality industry with the hope of developing a labor pool from which we can pull on in the future and we focus on developing skills as well as actual learning as opposed to just providing them with a summer job. Even our application process is designed to assess their interview writing skills and to develop their interviewing skills.” Simms said the interns were informed on best practices, hospitality standards and conduct during their training.Guerta Toussaint who is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Supply Chain Management at Broward College in Florida said she was excited to be returning home to gain experience in her field of study. “I am looking to gain experience in the field. I did want to spend the summer doing something constructive that would give me field experience. I’m excited to be able to foster experience in supply chain management. I’m excited to learn more about my field by actually doing it.”Tajh Missick a second year Computer Studies student at the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College was also elated about the program, stating; “I don’t really think of it as a job, I look at it as a learning experience because you learn a lot by interacting with the guest and the employees.”The Internship program is facilitated in part by the Human Resources Department and the Training Department of the Resort. Successful applicants have the option of returning during holidays to intern with the company and are given special consideration for full time employment in the future. Monique Graham- Training Manager at BTC remarked, “Internship is always good because what it does is it helps team members understand what the working world is like so they are better able to transition from high school into the real job and it also helps them to have some savings to help their parents for back to school. For persons who have a greater career expectation, it gives them a true exposure of what the hospitality industry is like so they know if this is what they want to do for the future or this is not what they want to do.”Press Release: Sandals Resort Related Items:last_img read more

Weather Eye Coolness helps firefighters warm weekend to come

first_imgLooking at satellite photos Wednesday afternoon, I saw an impressive-looking weather system lurking off the Washington and Oregon coast. Impressive for mid-August, that is. Light rain was falling along the coast at 5 p.m., but there were just clouds inland. Most of the moisture was expected to dissipate as it moved across the Coast Range, but some scattered showers or heavy drizzle was possible in the western valleys.I mentioned we could get a good downpour in Tuesday’s column, so I am still hoping we get a little rain, at least. Rain might settle the dust for a day or two, and it would make the roadways extremely slippery.Cooler weather has helped the firefighters in Southern Oregon so much that many of the firefighters have moved operations to Alaska. Yes, Alaska. Crews there are still battling wildfires, which is a little unusual this late in the summer.In our area, we have enjoyed a very nice summer without the extensive heat waves that sometimes occur. In August 2012, we had six days of 95 degrees or more. This summer, we’ve had only one: In June 30, it got up to 96 degrees. Every month so far this year — except January — the average mean temperature has been above average.Looking ahead, look for a lot of clouds Thursday and Friday, then improving weather during the weekend, with high temperatures back in the 80s. Just consider it a continuation of our up-down weather this summer.last_img read more

Facebook investors want Mark Zuckerberg to resign Report

first_imgFacebook CEO Mark ZuckerbergReutersFacebook investors have increased pressure on Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to step down after a New York Times investigation suggested that the social network hired a Republican-owned political consulting and PR firm that “dug up dirt on its competitors”.According to a report in The Guardian on Saturday, Jonas Kron, Senior Vice President at Trillium Asset Management which owns a substantial stake in Facebook, “called on Zuckerberg to step down as board chairman in the wake of the report”.”Facebook is behaving like it’s a special snowflake. It’s not. It is a company and companies need to have a separation of chair and CEO,” Kron was quoted as saying.The New York Times report suggested that Facebook hired Definers Public Affairs, a Washington, D.C.-based conservative firm which did PR work for the social networking giant “and dug up dirt on the company’s competitors and its critics”.In a press call, Zuckerberg denied he had any prior knowledge about this firm.”After reading the article, I got on the phone with our team and we are no longer working with this firm,” he said.Definers allegedly “encouraged the depiction of Facebook’s critics as anti-Semites and had published news articles criticising Facebook’s competitors”.Another Facebook investor Natasha Lamb from Arjuna Capital said the combined role of chairman and chief executive means that “Facebook can avoid properly fixing problems inside the company”, said the report.According to TechCrunch, founded by a Republican campaign manager known for his dirt-digging prowess, Definers is far from a normal, politically neutral contractor.In a statement, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg also denied any knowledge of the firm.Facebook said that it used the consultant Definers Public Affairs to look into the funding of “Freedom from Facebook” to demonstrate that it was not simply a spontaneous grassroots campaign, as it claimed, “but supported by a well-known critic of our company,” presumably liberal financier George Soros.”To suggest that this was an anti-Semitic attack is reprehensible and untrue,” the company added.Facebook has also refuted the allegation that it knew about Russian activity as early as the spring of 2016 but was slow to investigate it at every turn.As a fallout of the report, Facebook stocks fell 3 per cent on Friday to $139.53, the lowest since April 2017.last_img read more
