first_imgMONTREAL – Bombardier Inc. was on the defensive Monday after chief executive Alain Bellemare steered clear of a special meeting, hastily arranged to deal with the imminent layoff of 2,500 of the company’s Quebec workers.The province’s economy minister called the early-morning sit-down in downtown Montreal between Bombardier representatives, union and aerospace leaders and the government, with a view to finding a path back to employment for the workers.Bombardier, which announced last week it will cut 5,000 workers worldwide and sell off key assets, including the Q400 propeller plane program, dispatched two representatives to the rendezvous, including vice president of external relations Olivier Marcil.“Bombardier is not hiding, Bombardier is here,” he said during a scrum with reporters. “Mr. Bellemare has a very, very busy schedule and supports the initiative.”The plane-and-train maker has just under 70,000 employees across 30 countries, Marcil noted.Bellemare, whose total compensation was about $14 million in 2017, has avoided interviews since Bombardier gave word of the job cuts last week alongside third-quarter results.Bellemare said in a statement Thursday he was “very proud” of what had been achieved so far as part of his recovery plan, which is set to culminate in 2020.Bellemare has already admitted that Bombardier was close to bankruptcy in 2015 before the Quebec government jumped to its aid by injecting $1 billion of public money into the C Series. The aircraft program was renamed A220 in July when Airbus took control without paying a dime.“He lives in Quebec and is fully aware of what is happening,” said Marcil, when asked if his boss should take the time to explain his recent decisions. “But he manages a rail and aviation giant and could not be here today.”Quebec Economy Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon deflected questions around Bellemare’s absence Monday, noting that two Bombardier representatives were present at the meeting in downtown Montreal.However, he said he had talked with the leader of the Quebec multinational in recent days.“We have agreed to meet soon to talk about the industry to avoid future surprises,” Fitzgibbon said.Following the 7:30 a.m. meeting, the minister sought to reassure Quebeckers that the province’s aerospace sector is healthy and growing, despite restructuring at the company. He said he is hopeful an ongoing labour shortage means all affected Bombardier employees will be able to find new work within the next 12 to 18 months.Representatives from Aero Montreal, Bell Helicopter and CAE Inc. were present, among other companies.Bombardier is expected to provide details surrounding the layoffs, such as the trades affected, to the province in the coming days, which would allow the industry to respond, Fitzgibbon said.“You have to understand which employees are going to be targeted,” he said. “There is a risk that there will be training issues and that is where the Ministry of Employment will be present.”David Chartrand, the Quebec co-ordinator of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, was optimistic about industry prospects, despite having criticized last week the way Bombardier opted to announce the layoffs.“It’s a good message to send to the public if some people think it’s not going well,” he said Monday. “That’s wrong. There is job creation. It’s good that people know about it.”– – –The aerospace industry in numbers:– 40,000 jobs.– Nearly 31,700 positions to be filled over the next decade.– Approximately 22,900 jobs to replace due to promotions, retirements and voluntary departures.– Most in-demand trades: aerospace engineer, mechanical engineering technician and interior finishing worker.(Source: Aero Montreal)Companies in this story: (TSX:BBD.B, TSX:CAE)last_img read more

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that only 17 per cent of all activities covering the educational needs of children affected by the conflict in the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) are currently funded.Many children who have returned to the region have found that some 550 of their former schools have been damaged or destroyed, including 147 girls’ schools.With the recent start of the new school year, a group of UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), led by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) – is working to help provide access to education for all children affected by the emergency.OCHA has reported in recent weeks that around 1.6 million of the more than 2 million people who fled the military offensive against militants in NWFP have now returned to their homes, stressing that there is an urgent need to provide school supplies and school tents for the new academic year until pre-fabricated shelters arrive for more than 500 schools in Swat and Buner districts. UNICEF has already dispatched 100 school tents to the two districts, enabling a number of returning children to start the year.The children’s agency has also prioritized the repair and rehabilitation of 3,565 primary schools damaged from hosting internally displaced persons (IDPs) – estimated to benefit over half a million children – with nearly 1,000 schools already refurbished and the work on another 900 under way.In addition, an 18-month ‘Welcome to School’ initiative, designed to get around 532,000 children into school and keep them there, is slated for Swat, Buner, Lower Dir and Malakand districts.The scheme will create temporary learning spaces in tents, makeshift shelters, rented buildings or through “second shift” arrangements in nearby schools. Agencies working in education will also provide education supplies to all schools in conflict-affected districts and work to get all children in school, including those who have never attended schools, especially girls. 10 September 2009A shortfall of around $20 million in educational funding is hampering efforts to get Pakistani children back to school in the aftermath of the mass exodus in the north-west of the country during the recent conflict in the area, the United Nations humanitarian arm announced today. read more

ATHENS, Greece — Greece has launched a 7-year bond auction, its third effort in 2019 to raise money from international markets, as it aims to take advantage of an improvement in borrowing rates to fulfil its financing needs for the year.Greece’s Public Debt Management Agency authorized the auction, which aims to raise 2.5 billion euros ($2.8 billion). It follows successful 5-year and 10-year bond issues earlier this year. Altogether, the issues look to raise about 7 billion euros ($7.9 billion) from bond markets in 2019.Tuesday’s auction is the first by the new government of conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, who has promised a steady return to bond markets following three successive international bailouts.The Associated Press read more

The case involves two San Diego employees.Last year, the Supreme Court emphasized in Janus v. AFSCME that public employees have a First Amendment right to refuse to pay a union, and “must choose to support the union before anything is taken from them.” Before the state can authorize a union to deduct dues payments from employee paychecks, workers must give their clear permission.After Janus, UC San Diego employees Mike Jackson and Tory Smith tried to exercise their rights by resigning their Teamsters membership. The union denied their demand, saying they were locked into membership until the collective bargaining agreement expires in 2022.When they asked the university’s human resources department how to resign, they were told a California state law—a Gag Rule statute—expressly prohibits the university from talking to them about their constitutional rights related to union membership and dues. PLF, on behalf of Jackson and Smith, filed the lawsuit challenging the “Gag Rule” and affirming their right to resign from the union.KUSI Contributor Jan Goldsmith explained the lawsuit in detail on Good Morning San Diego.To read a copy of the complain, click here.

The only caveat is you really have to jam the tips into your ear to get a tight seal and the design may not be for everyone. While the Zippo-inspired case is somewhat heavy for its relatively compact size, it’s sleek, sturdy and features USB-C charging. Battery and battery life are also a highlight: The buds themselves can run for up to 8 hours on a single charge at moderate volume levels and the case with its built-in battery provides three additional charges on the go. The T5 Wireless uses Bluetooth 5.0 and has support for both AAC and aptX.Water-resistant: Yes (IPX4 rating — splashproof)   See at Crutchfield Read Klipsch T5 True Wireless review Now playing: Watch this: Sarah Tew/CNET Best Buy UA True Wireless Flash Engineered by JBL: $170 Bang & Olufsen Amazon Bose Sennheiser Apple See at B&H Photo Sarah Tew/CNET See at Apple See the Beats Powerbeats Pro review It’s now fairly easy to find inexpensive true wireless earbuds that sound pretty decent, and if that’s what you’re looking for, we’ve got a list of the best cheap true wireless earbuds. But alas, many of the best wireless headphones cost a lot. And if sound quality is your top priority, you’re going to have to spend more — and in some instances, a lot more. The best wireless headphones also tend to be on the bigger side because size does seem to matter when it comes to the sound quality of wireless earbuds. And that’s where the one big caveat to all this comes into play: To get optimal performance, the best wireless headphones need to fit right and feel comfortable — and you have to get a tight seal. If you can’t get a snug fit with in-ear headphones, you’ll be sadly disappointed and think you got ripped off, which is why I suggest buying from a store with a decent return policy — such as Amazon. Below is a list of the best wireless headphones, with a breakdown of features, including performance, noise cancellation, battery, sound and how comfortable they are. I’ll update this list as I test new models (the Klipsch T5 True Wireless and  Sony WF-1000XM3 have been added as part of the latest update). Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue if you buy anything featured on our site. Read more: Best cheap true wireless earphones See It See All See at Amazon Read: Best over-ear headphones At $300 (£279, AU$499), Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless are more expensive than Apple AirPods wireless earbuds, Jabra’s Elite 65t true wireless earbuds and Elite Active 65t and Bose SoundSport Free wireless earbuds. But they sound superior to those models, with better bass and cleaner, more detailed audio. These wireless earbuds also feature very good performance for making phone calls, with solid noise cancelling capabilities, and offer a generally comfortable fit, though they’re bigger than the Jabras and stick out of your ear a little more. Their only significant downside is that they gradually lose their charge in the charging case and can end up completely dead after four days or so if you don’t recharge the case.I’ve used these wireless earbuds in the gym, but they don’t fit quite securely enough in my ear to run with them. Battery life is rated at 4 hours, and you get two extra charges from the carrying case. These use Bluetooth 5.0 with support for AAC and aptX and a firmware update has improved their performance and slightly.Water-resistant: Yes (IPX4 rating — splashproof) Sarah Tew/CNET I don’t really know how stylish the 1More Stylish True Wireless earbuds are (yes, that’s their name), but they do sound good. With a list price of $100, they’re the least expensive of any of the models on this list. 1More made a name for itself with its wired earbuds, the Triple Drivers, which sound great and were a good value when wired headphones were still a thing. The same clear, balanced sound found in that headphone is present in 1More’s first true wireless earbuds (they don’t sound as good as the Triple Drivers, but they sound very good for true wireless).These have more of an audiophile sound profile, with more “accurate” sound, so bass lovers may be a little disappointed, but I liked them. Of course, it helped that I was able to get a tight seal with one of the included ear tips. However, the stabilizer fin did nothing for me (I just jammed the tip into my ear to get a secure fit). Their battery life is rated at up 6.5 hours (expect closer to 5 if you’re listening to your music at higher volumes), with an extra 17 hours or so of battery life available from the charging case. These use Bluetooth 5.0 with support for AAC and aptX.Water-resistance: No (lacks IPX certification)center_img • See the Jabra Elite 65t review See at Amazon Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Aug 31 • Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint: Choose the best 5G carrier The Master & Dynamic MW07 True Wireless may not fit everyone’s ear equally well, but they certainly have a distinct look, as well as very good sound if you can get a tight seal. These in-ear headphones are known for more of an audiophile sound profile, with smooth, well-balanced sound and well-defined bass, and the MW07 delivers that kind of sound. Available in a variety of color options for $300, these wireless earbuds with excellent audio include a swanky chrome charging case that comes with a secondary pouch for safekeeping (yes, the case can get scratched up if you leave it in a bag). Battery life is rated at 3.5 hours, which is a little on the short side, and the case with its built-in chargeable battery gives you an additional three charges (it charges via USB-C). These use Bluetooth 4.2 with support for AAC and aptX and have an extended range of more than 20m, according to Master & Dynamic.Water-resistant: Yes (IPX4 rating — splashproof) $159 Sony hasn’t been much of a player in the true wireless (AirPods-style) headphone arena, but its new WF-1000XM3 may change that. While this pair of headphones isn’t cheap at $229, it’s the best-sounding set of truly wireless earbuds at this price, matching and perhaps even exceeding the performance of pricier competitors from Sennheiser, Beats, Master & Dynamic and Bang & Olufsen. It also has a feature that those wireless earbuds don’t have: active noise cancellation to reduce ambient noise.Its only drawback is that it isn’t rated as being sweat- or water-resistant. That said, I’ve used these wireless noise-canceling headphones for light workouts at the gym without a problem.The Sony WF-1000XM3 noise-canceling headphones use Bluetooth 5.0 with support for AAC but not aptX.Water-resistant: No (lacks IPX certification) The Elite 65t ($170, £150 or AU$300) and slightly enhanced Elite Active 65t ($190, £170 or AU$350) are our current top picks in the true wireless category because they sound better than Apple’s AirPods, this pair of headphones offers just as good or even better performance for making phone calls, and they fit a lot of ears securely.Their sound isn’t quite as rich or clean as the more-expensive earphones above them on this best wireless headphones list (the bass lacks a little kick), but it’s still a very good sounding set of true wireless earbuds, and the battery life is decent. Since they’ve been on the market awhile, they’re frequently discounted, so wait till you see a deal on these wireless earbuds before buying.These use Bluetooth 4.2 (AAC but no aptX).Water-resistant: Yes (IP56 rating — can withstand heavy sprays of water) CNET See it Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 True Wireless Earbuds: $350 Amazon See It Comments $144 $144 Yes, the Powerbeats Pro’s jumbo charging case with its built-in battery is a notable drawback.

Just make sure you buy them somewhere that has a good return policy in case you’re in the small minority that has ears that aren’t quite a match for them.

Here’s how to clean it 1More Stylish True Wireless: $100 reading • The best-sounding true wireless headphones of 2019 Apple AirPods 2019 JBL and Under Armour bill their new True Wireless Flash ($170) as totally wireless sports and workout headphones “designed for runners by runners.” They’re technically the first truly wireless earbuds from the duo, and as far as truly wireless workout headphones go, they’re quite good, although some of their allure is tempered by a rather large charging case that’s probably three times the size of Apple’s AirPods’ charging case. Battery life of these wireless earbuds is rated at 5 hours.With relatively clean, well-balanced sound and meaty bass that’s pretty well-defined (read: not boomy), they sound on par and even slightly better some of the other best wireless headphones in this price class. They’ve got better bass than the Jabra Elite 65t, but the Elite 65t may be a more comfortable fit.The wireless earbuds are fully waterproof and use Bluetooth 4.2 (no aptX). Water-resistant: Yes (IPX7 — fully waterproof). 21 See at Amazon Tags The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 True Wireless Earbuds ($350, £300) feature some of those extra design touches that’d you expect — and end up paying for — with Bang & Olufsen products. The charging case for this set of headphones is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing of any charging case out there (like the new AirPods’ wireless charging case, this one also features wireless charging) and feels like a case you’d get at Tiffany.They also sound very good, with clear, well-balanced sound. The bass audio has good definition but doesn’t have quite as much energy or oomph as the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless’ bass. As a result, I wouldn’t say these are the best wireless headphones for bass audio lovers (look to the Beats for that), but they do sound impressive with well-recorded tracks. While they’re the most-expensive pair of wireless headphones in this roundup, they come in a variety of color options, some of which cost less than $300.  Note that with version 2.0 of these wireless earbuds, Bang & Olufsen improved the battery life to 4 hours (plus three additional charges from the case with its built-in chargeable battery) and added USB-C and wireless charging.

first_imgBen Stokes apologises for the overthrowsTwitter/Cricket World CupOne of the most crucial and unfortunate moments in the World Cup final was the four over throws that England got when a throw from the deep hit the bat of a diving Ben Stokes and got deflected to the boundary. This was a most unwanted occurance in a game that was otherwise dominated by the brilliance of the players in both the teams.As per the etiquette of cricket, batsmen don’t run for overthrows when the ball gets deflected off their bat. On this occasion also, Stokes, lying flat out on the ground, had no intention of running, even though it was the last over and every run was to die for. As soon as the ball reached the boundary, Stokes had both his arms up in the air to apologise to the New Zealand team for this inadvertent mistake.For a long time after that incident, the umpires had a chat to, possibly, figure out whether they could do anything to correct the situation and take away the misfortune of New Zealand. But they couldn’t do anything, the rules of the game are clear and couldn’t be altered. Chris Woakes commiserates with Martin GuptillTwitter/Cricket World CupEngland eventually won the match and when Stokes was asked about that incident, he said something that shows how, in this sport, sportsmanship can easily co-exist with highest intensity of competition. “I said to Kane I’ll be apologising for that for the rest of my life,” the English all-rounder revealed.In fact, the spirit of sportsmanship that was evident in this game should make every cricket fan feel proud of his sporting inclination. There was no ugly incident, no out of control instances of sledging and full show of respect for the opponent. England captain Eoin Morgan started his post-match interview by commiserating with Kane Williamson and Stokes also mentioned how well his opponents played.Two of the best gentlemen in the game – Williamson and Morgan – led their teams on to the biggest stage of the game and made the sport, its players and followers proud. More power to them.last_img read more

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comMGM National Harbor arena is now a timeshare for the D.M.V.’s first families of world championship boxing.  The venue, which has already hosted two championship cards featuring Team Gary Russell, now gives way to Lamont and Anthony Peterson who will take center stage for a nationally televised card on March 26.Lamont faces former 140-pound champion Sergey Lipinets in the main event, while Anthony faces another former champion Argenis Méndez in the co-main event on the TV portion of the card.  This is the first time the Peterson family affair has been the main attraction before a partisan home audience as they look to get back into the mix of contenders on the world stage.Boxers Lamont and Anthony Peterson are gearing up to step into the ring for nationally televised fights on March 26 at MGM National Harbor arena. (Courtesy Photo)“March 24 is going to be big and it means a lot because a win for Lamont would put him right back in the thick of the running with the top of the 147-pounders,” said Barry Hunter, trainer of the Peterson Brothers during their pre-fight media workout at historic Head Bangers Boxing Gym in D.C.“For Anthony, this is a long time coming. Myself, like so many others, thought he deserved a shot a long time ago. Nevertheless, your time is your time. So, he’s going to go out there and take care of business on the 24th and that should put him in line for a world title fight,” Hunter said.The Petersons haven’t fought on the same card since January 2018 when Anthony won a 10-round unanimous decision over Luis Antonio Florez at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. That same night Lamont lost on a seventh round TKO to IBF Welterweight champion Errol Spence, Jr. and he hasn’t fought since.  Spence Jr. was in control of the fight, though it has been wide speculated that he wasn’t totally healthy which may have affected his performance.  Since then Spence has enjoyed a meteoric rise amongst the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world while Lamont has given his body a chance to heal from injuries.“I’ve been boxing for 25 years, doing it professionally for 15 years, pretty much straight through. Only injuries have held me back,” Lamont said. “I just wanted to take some time to relax, and if my body was able to recover and come back close to what I was or better, then I was going to go on.During his 14-month sabbatical from the ring Anthony remained focused on staying in shape and preparing by training in solitude close to home.  The reclusive homebody maintained an intense physical regimen and solicited the help of WBC Welterweight Champion Shawn Porter during training camp to sharpen him for this moment that could propel him to a title fight.“Shawn brought a different type of energy,” Anthony said.  “He’s a real good guy, very spiritual and positive.  He’s always in a good mood and showed a good example of how a champion is supposed to handle himself.”The Peterson brothers have navigated through life’s challenges, such as extended homelessness, in order to become contenders in their sport and role models in their community.   These fights are more than just an opportunity for their fans to watch them in person.  It is a chance for the family to share a shining moment that was a long time coming.“It will be a good feeling to be fighting back at home,” Lamont said. “For the first time ever, I’ll be fighting on a card, my brother is fighting on the card and my nephew is fighting on the card. I knew this day would probably happen, but I’m happy that it’s this time around.”last_img read more

Fast forward to 2019, the G7 ThinQ has received a significant discount, to the extent that instead of being priced like a 2018 flagship, it now appears more of a mid-ranger.That’s correct; the G7 ThinQ factory unlocked costs just $365 at Amazon and $390 at B&H. Both models sold at these online retailers feature 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB of internal storage, with expandable memory possibilities too (which will use up the first SIM card slot). The smartphone features a generous 6.1-inch IPS LCD screen with a 3120 x 1440 resolution. The display covers 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space and is also HDR10 compliant for viewing content through Netflix if you enjoy that sort of stuff on a mobile phone.Despite featuring an LCD panel, the G7 ThinQ can reach a peak brightness of a whopping 1000 nits. The previous-generation flagship is armed with a Snapdragon 845 and providing all that power is a decent 3000mAh battery. For audiophiles, there is a 3.5mm headphone, with audio quality amplified via a 32-bit DAC.
