DETROIT — U.S. auto safety regulators have expanded an investigation into malfunctioning air bag controls to include 12.3 million vehicles because the bags may not inflate in a crash.As many as five deaths are blamed on the problem. The probe covers parts made by made by ZF-TRW that were installed in Toyota, Honda, Kia, Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Fiat Chrysler vehicles from the 2010 through 2019 model years.Government documents say electrical signals can interfere with a circuit that monitors crash sensors. The interference can damage the circuit.Investigators recently found two serious crashes involving 2018 and 2019 Toyota Corollas in which the air bags did not inflate. One person was killed. The agency opened an investigation in March of 2017 involving Hyundais and Kias. Four fatalities were reported at that time.The Associated Press
by The Associated Press Posted Mar 6, 2013 7:28 am MDT BERLIN – How to show your attachment to your small Alpine country when you’re a globally known watch manufacturer? Try writing your annual financial report in the local dialect impenetrable to outsiders.Swatch Group AG, Switzerland’s biggest watch maker, issued its 216-page report for 2012 Wednesday in Swiss German — an idiosyncratic form of the language that often baffles other native German speakers. Swiss films are typically shown with subtitles in neighbouring Germany.Chairwoman Nayla Hayek said the language switch was meant as “a positive provocation” and she was confident the Swiss “will respond to this expression of our deep connection to our roots with a wink.”The company says net earnings rose 26 per cent last year to 1.61 billion francs ($1.71 billion). Revenue rose 14 per cent to 8.14 billion francs.

Filers will still have to check to ensure the information is correct and if they notice a mistake, they’ll have to contact whoever issued the slip.The Canada Revenue Agency has also updated notices of assessment.The forms, which are sent after the government processes tax returns, includes an account summary, explanation of changes as well as an RRSP deduction limit and other details.Marc Lacasse, the director of the agency’s international and Ottawa tax services office, said the form has been simplified.“All of the relevant information will fit on one page,” he said.Lacasse said the agency’s mobile apps have been improved to allow people to change their addresses and direct deposit information.If people are using someone to help prepare their tax return, Ball said it’s important to update them on any big life changes. That includes getting married, especially if they are at the lower end of the income range.“It might impact their qualification for credits and that sort of thing,” Ball said.Ball said if people are using a professional for their taxes, they should ensure they have all of their information before they start.“That’s probably one of the things that would make your bill a little higher, if you bring in some of it and then you discover more of it later and bring some more in,” he said.“We tend to give clients an organizer, so we give them sort of a checklist of things that we need to get from them. So for the clients who have been with us for a while, they get the process pretty well too.”The deadline to file tax returns is April 30, but because it falls on a Saturday this year, people have until May 2.For the self-employed and their spouses and partners, the deadline is June 15, but if they owe the government money, they still have to pay it by May 2.

‘Bus and coach registrations did very well in the first half of 2006,’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT Chief Executive. ‘This was mainly as bus and coach makers delivered fleets ordered the previous year. More recently the pace slowed and we expect a similar picture for most of 2007. Regulatory changes in April and September may have had some effect on registration patterns, but probably less than the normal seasonal variations in this market. ‘Despite that variable performance, the 2,906 total for big buses in 2006 is in line with the five year annual average. In all other sectors too, except mini buses, annual registration trends are in line with that five year annual average, though the month by month performance is often more variable.’ The final quarter of 2006 saw a total of 2,296 bus and coach registrations. This was 21.2 per cent down on the fourth quarter of 2005, underlining the uncertain outlook for the total sector over the second half of 2006. For the buses over 8.5t and coaches over 16t registration totals were down respectively 34.6 and 27.5 per cent on the fourth quarter of 2005. For the three months to May 2006 the respective changes were up by 28.7 and 22.4 per cent on the same three months in 2005. After a strong start to the year in most sectors, registration trends diverged after May. The growth revival for mini buses evaporated and the further growth push in the 3.5 to 8.5t GVW sectors petered-out. The 8.5 to 16t weight segments had the best growth trend through the year, ending 9.8 per cent up on 2005 and well above the 2001 to 2006 average. More recently the pace slowed and the picture for most of 2007 should be similar, with seasonal patterns possibly affected by the regulatory distortions in 2006.

It’s going to be a busy summer for two Brock University students who have won business scholarships.Each year, the Deborah E. Rosati Entrepreneurship Award provides two Brock students with $10,000 in funding that allows them to spend a full semester working on their business ideas in partnership with BioLinc, Brock’s business incubator run by the Goodman School of Business.The scholarship is generously provided by Brock graduate Deborah Rosati (BAdmin ’84) who has shown incredible dedication to supporting entrepreneurship at the Goodman School.Ethan Foy and Olivia Poulin, the 2017 award recipients, are now one week into their four-month terms as full-time entrepreneurs.Foy, a fifth year neuroscience student from Oakville, is working on his idea called Lifepoints. The mobile application will reward users for time spent at a fitness facility with points they can later cash in at local businesses.Foy says receiving the award is a dream come true for him.“A lot of times as an entrepreneur, especially in the early stages, it can seem impossible and you think, ‘how can I ever pull this off?’ But having the monetary support so you can work on your idea full-time really gives you a sense of confidence,” he said.Poulin, a third year business student from Niagara Falls, is working on her business, Olivia’s Pupadise, a pet and home care business that won her a finalist spot in Brock Innovation Group’s Monster Pitch competition earlier this year.Poulin is looking forward to the rest of the summer where she’ll have more time to fine-tune her company.“Since I started this business I’ve been spending a lot of time working with clients. Now it’s time to focus on the operations and instituting things that will set us up for long-term growth,” she said. “I think it’s amazing that our school is so driven by programs like this.“It’s a testament to how much people care about the students here. Money is usually a big stress point and knowing you can go all chips in because you have the backing of someone like Deborah is invaluable.”Foy and Poulin will benefit from regular meetings with an expert panel comprised of Goodman faculty and staff and Innovate Niagara members. They’ll also be able to set up shop in the BioLinc space at Brock, where they can collaborate with other student entrepreneurs on a daily basis.Foy is no stranger to BioLinc, having spent countless hours in the business incubator since hearing a presentation in his class about the new facility in his second year.“From that moment in the presentation, my life changed forever,” he said. “I love the time I spend at BioLinc. Ever since I walked through the doors, everything has become this entrepreneurial mindset. You see a problem and try to figure out how to fix it,” he said.“I think one of the great things about this award is that it actually provides you with collaborative space to work out of, which I think is one of the most important things you can offer an entrepreneur,” he said.After spending some time in BioLinc, entrepreneurship took on a life of its own for Foy, who believes entrepreneurship is not a career path or a job — it becomes a lifestyle.“Entrepreneurship is really just seeing a problem in the world and having the courage to stand up and say, ‘I’m going to fix that problem or I’m going to fill that void,’ with something I come up with,” he said.
In almost all cases, passengers were standing in standard class carriages, which seat 80 people each.The new franchise, which will begin in December 2018, could see the introduction of high capacity metro-style carriages on the busiest lines.It is hoped they would enable a “better balance” of seating and room for standing passengers, space for wheelchairs and pushchairs on shorter journeys and quicker boarding and alighting at stations.Extending the number of carriages on stopping services from eight or 10 to 12 carriages and providing more seats on high speed services is also being considered.Some 640,000 journeys are made on 1,900 trains on the lines every weekday, yet only 77 per cent of passengers are satisfied with Southeastern services according to the latest Transport Focus survey, the worst performance in Britain apart from Southern and Thameslink. Government officials are examining a number of measures which could have a negative impact on some passengers.They are proposing a reduction in the number of trains that call at some less well-used stations to cut journey times to key locations, and a limit in the choice of central London destinations from individual stations with the aim of providing a more regular and reliable service.The operator which secures the franchise will be required to form an alliance with Network Rail, which is responsible for railway infrastructure.Chris Grayling, the Transport Secretary, said: “Services on the South Eastern rail network have been unacceptably poor for far too long.”Passengers have endured disruption, overcrowding and delays, particularly during redevelopment work at London Bridge station, and they deserve better.”That is why this consultation is so important. Appointing a new franchise operator from 2018 provides us with a great opportunity to sort out the problems which have plagued the South Eastern network, and deliver the high quality of service that customers expect.”We are going to do things differently. I want passengers to enjoy more space and comfort, more and better communication with the operator, and a consistently reliable performance.”Mr Grayling announced in December that he would not devolve responsibility for the South Eastern franchise to London’s Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan.He claimed Transport for London’s business plan did not offer extra capacity and was simply based on “a belief” that the organisation could run the system more effectively.But Mr Grayling was accused of putting politics ahead of passengers over the issue after a leaked letter showed he opposed the policy in 2013 as he wanted to keep the network “out of the clutches” of any future Labour mayor. The DfT consultation closes on May 23 and a summary report will be published in September this year. The DfT acknowledged that first class seats “remain popular on certain routes” such as the main line to Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, but said removing them would “create more room for passengers”. First class carriages on busy trains should be removed to ease overcrowding, the Department for Transport (DfT) has suggested following a Telegraph investigation.Services could be made entirely standard class under a new franchise agreement for routes currently operated by Southeastern, as part of measures the DfT are considering in a public consultation.The DfT’s recommendations follows a Telegraph investigation which found that many first class carriages remain half-empty even in rush hours.The research, commissioned by The Telegraph in 2013, involved intercity trains arriving at Paddington, Waterloo, Liverpool Street and Kings Cross between 8am and 9am on three consecutive weekdays.Trains typically had three first-class carriages and five in standard class. Less than a fifth of the first-class carriages were full or nearly full, and some had only three or four people in carriages with 48 seats.

“The tear in the thread of our family will never be mended. Pip spent her last three years fighting against against anorexia, malnutrition, depression and self-harm.”Too many of our children are dying from this terrible illness [anorexia]. Effective treatment is needed more quickly, and if this had been available to out beautiful daughter, maybe she would still be alive today.”The teenager’s father, Jim McManus, said his daughter had been “failed” and describe some of the care she had received as “quite disturbing”.“It’s not the ending we want, however the jury came up with the right answers,” he said.”It was quite deflating to see all the hard, goodwill, for her to build her weight back up – she desperately wanted to get her life back on track – and the illness would suddenly, at a flick of a finger, pull her back down to earth again.”It wasn’t pleasant at all. She was a lovely girl, plenty of fun. Always active.”Paula Stanford, Hospital Director of the Priory Hospital Altrincham, said: “Our heartfelt sympathies are with Pip’s family and we will now carefully consider the findings of the jury.” The tear in the thread of our family will never be mendedMarie McManus The jury criticised the planning for her discharge, and found there was “inadequate engagement of community support” for Pip’s family and a “failure to implement a care plan in a timely manner”.They did not, however, criticise the decision to release her itself.The Priory is one of the UK’s largest mental health providers and has multi-million pound contracts with the NHS.Last year the mother of 14-year-old Amy El-Keria, who died from neglect at a Priory facility, to lose the contracts. Pippa’s parents believe she would be alive but for care failingsCredit:MEN The court found staff at The Priory Hospital Altrincham had developed “no relationship” with people who could have help safeguard the teen once she was released, despite having cared for her for a year.Yesterday her parents said failings in their daughter’s care were “quite disturbing” and had been responsible for her death.Following the argument in 2015, Pippa walked away from the family home in Frances Avenue to Gatley station, where she stepped in front of a train. The Priory released a severely anorexic teenage girl without telling her parents she was at risk of suicide five days before she walked in front of a train.An inquest into the death of 15-year-old Pippa McManus found the private hospital also failed to organise proper aftercare for the teenager, who took her own life.A jury at stockport Coroner’s court heard how on the day she died, Pippa had argued with her family over excessive use of the gym and warned she was going to kill herself. Speaking outside court, Pippa’s mother Marie said: “We believe the failings of our daughter’s care, from beginning to end, resulted in her death.

Schools may no longer ban pupils from having dreadlocks, after a Rastafarian boy had his hair ban overturned.On his first day of school last September, 12-year-old Chikayzea Flanders was put into isolation and told that his dreadlocked hair did not comply with the school’s uniform policy. He was told that he can only return to lessons if he cuts off his hair.His lawyers, funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), argued that his dreadlocks were a fundamental tenet of his Rastafarian beliefs and therefore should be exempt from the policy.Fulham Boys School (FBS), a Church of England free school in West London, has now backed down following legal action by the Flanders family.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––The school was ordered by the County Court to pay Chikayzea and his mother Tuesday Flanders a settlement and cover their litigation costs. The EHRC said that Chikayzea, who now attends a nearby school, is welcome to return to Fulham Boys School, should he wish to, provided that his dreadlocks are tied up so that they do not touch the top of his collar, or covered with a cloth of colour to be agreed by the school.While the case will not formally set a legal precedent, the EHRC believe it may discourage other schools from employing similar discriminatory uniform policies. At the heart of this issue is a young boy who is entitled to express his religious beliefs and access an educationDavid Isaac, EHRC chair Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. David Isaac, chair at the EHRC, said: “We funded this case because no child should be prevented from attending their chosen school because of inflexible uniform policies that discriminate against children on the basis of their race or religious beliefs.”He added: “At the heart of this issue is a young boy who is entitled to express his religious beliefs and access an education.“We are pleased that the school has acknowledged their failings in this instance and has agreed to revise its policies.FBS has been told by its governors’ complaints resolution committee to review its uniform policy to ensure it complies with legislation, and also to provide staff with equality and diversity training. It said it will also review its complaints policy.Alun Ebenezer, the school’s headmaster, said: “FBS can confirm that a case was settled earlier this year with no admission of liability made. There was no ruling on the acceptability of dreadlocks, no ruling governing the pupil’s return to the school and no judgement made on the school’s enforcement of its policies. Reports otherwise are inaccurate.”FBS considers this case closed. The school will continue to enforce its uniform and appearance policy as a necessary and core part of its inclusive ethos.”
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released its Annual Energy Outlook 2009, which predicts that total coal-based electricity generation will increase nearly 1% annually through 2030 to about 2.3 billion kWh. According to the report, coal will maintain its position as the largest fuel provider for US electricity, with EIA anticipating the addition of 184 GW of coal capacity between 2007 and 2030. Coal remains the largest source of electricity generation, however, the outlook forecasts that coal’s share of the electricity generation market will stand at 47% in 2030, down from the 55% figure predicted in the 2008 outlook. That projection is predicated on an expected dramatic rise in renewable sourced generation due to federal tax incentives and fuel standards expected to impact generation in many states.Growth in coal production is expected to average 0.6% nationally between 2007 and 2030, reaching 1,216 Mt, with Western coal production providing much of the additional output from mines in Wyoming, Montana and North Dakota. Also, a surge in demand for higher sulphur interior region coal (Illinois, Indiana and western Kentucky) is expected, as coal plants increasingly retrofit existing units with flue gas desulphurisation technologies to reduce emissions.Elsewhere, the preliminary forecast predicts that 19 Mt of coal will be needed for domestic coal-to-liquid (CTL) fuel production in 2030. According to the report, about half of the Western US’ additional coal production will be used as a feedstock for new CTL plants.

Wednesday afternoon’s big rainfall caused at least a dozen reported traffic accidents around Clark County, emergency personnel said.One mishap was a rollover on state Highway 500 west of the Fourth Plain Boulevard overpass.

Ragahvendra Rajkumar and Anupama Gowda-starrer Thrayambakam.PR HandoutDayal Padmanabhan’s filmmaking style has undergone sea changes since 2014. From just regular commercial potboilers, the director shifted focus to content-oriented movies and has won appreciation for some of his works in recent years. Now, he has returned once again with an off-beat film in the form of Thrayambakam, his third film in nine months after Aa Karala Ratri and Puta 109.Thrayambakam is about Shiva Rudriah (Raghavendra Rajkumar), who has a nightmare over his daughter Namana (Anupama Gowda)’s life. His trepidation leads to interesting twists and successfully creates confusion about reality versus illusion in the first half. The second half unravels the mystery with backstories.Filmmakers get inspiration from books, movies, stories, incidents or by reading newspapers. And Dayal, here, gets his inspiration (only outline) from the famous Palani Murugan stature (Tamil Nadu), made of navapashana (meaning: amalgamation of nine poisons). It is believed that the panchamrutha, milk and other materials used for abhishekam absorb the medicinal properties from the deity and is believed to possess curative properties.The idea and narration are fresh as Dayal tries to build a different perception about the situation that the main character is going through. However, the major problem with the film is that the magic that Dayal had in writing the scripts of his last two films is missing here.The scenes of Shiva Rudiah’s nightmare from the very beginning and the slow progress of the story turn out to be major drawbacks of the film. He mixes up various elements to keep the viewers’ guessing, but once the secret is revealed the film falls flat. Nonetheless, it is a kind of informative film about ‘navapashana’ and Palani Murugan temple.Raghavendra Rajkumar proves that he still has fire left in him. He is stupendous as a worried father and Anupama Gowda is raising the bar with each film. Among the technicalities, the aerial shots are a treat to watch.Ratings: 2.5
