TORONTO — Sluggish manufacturing data from China weighed heavily on commodities and sent stock markets in Toronto and New York into broad-based declines.The S&P/TSX composite index in Toronto retreated 157.95 points at 13,707.68 as concerns over global growth dragged down the commodity-sensitive Canadian dollar.After some fairly strong recent gains that saw the loonie briefly touch 80 cents US late last week, the currency plunged 1.11 cents to 78.66 cents US.In commodities, the June contract for benchmark North American crude was down $1.13 at US$43.65 a barrel, while June gold bullion shed $4 to US$1291.80 a troy ounce.July copper was off five cents at US$2.22 a pound.June natural gas rebounded, climbing four cents to US$2.09 per mmBtu after having declined 14 cents on Monday.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average more than erased Monday’s 117-point gain, falling 140.25 points to 17,750.91.The broader S&P 500 lost 18.06 points to 2,063.37 and the Nasdaq fell 54.37 points to 4,763.22.Overnight, the Caixin magazine’s purchasing managers’ index reported that China’s manufacturing sector declined to a reading of 49.4 points from March’s reading of 49.7.A number below 50 indicates that manufacturing is contracting and spurred fears that growth in the world’s second-largest economy is slowing. read more

Fleets and retailers urged to check vehicles for outstanding safety recalls or risk a £20,000 fine or prison.2.3 million consumers get peace of mind from industry‘s Vehicle Safety Recall Service in 2018.Now online tool for fleets allows bulk checking of more than 100,000 vehicles at a time to help them stay legal.The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), together with the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), is today calling on UK fleet operators to join the millions of consumers who have checked if their vehicles have an outstanding safety recall. In the first three months of this year, SMMT’s online Vehicle Safety Recalls Service was used 2,334,385 times by drivers to check their car was safe.Manufacturers work closely with the DVSA to ensure the UK has one of the world’s most successful vehicle safety recall processes. However, recalls can be missed when a vehicle transfers between keepers so, in 2015, SMMT and its members developed a consumer-facing online look-up service to make it easier for individual drivers to check for themselves. The service has now been rolled out to meet specific commercial needs.For fleet owners, operators and businesses that provide fleet services, a vehicle with an outstanding recall could see insurance voided. Further, the DVSA has the power to prosecute businesses that sell vehicles to consumers with an outstanding safety recall. Failure to check a car for an outstanding safety recall could lead to a fine of up to £20,000 and/ or up to three months imprisonment.To ensure every vehicle on a company’s books is compliant, the SMMT has launched a fleet-dedicated version of its Vehicle Safety Recall Service. The service provides a bulk automated look-up tool, allowing companies to check any size fleet and up to 100,000 or more in a single batch. The service is fully automated with results usually returned within the hour.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,The UK vehicle recall process is one of the most robust in the world, and manufacturers are committed to ensuring vehicles remain safe throughout their lifecycles, constantly striving to make the process even better. Our vehicle safety recall tool has already given peace of mind to millions of consumers and now it is supporting businesses, helping to keep fleets and retailers compliant, and vehicles safe on the road by enabling entire fleets to be checked quickly and regularly.Safety recalls are issued by vehicle manufacturers, which are responsible for contacting owners to notify them that their car may have a problem that needs to be rectified by an authorised repairer. The General Product Safety Regulations 2005 say that dealers must get vehicles with outstanding recalls fixed before selling on to a consumer. If they do not, they can be prosecuted by Trading Standards.All recall repair work linked to safety issues is free of charge for customers and scheduled as a matter of urgency. A recall notice remains open indefinitely to ensure as many cars as possible are sent back to dealerships to be fixed.The SMMT’s Vehicle Safety Recall Service is an easy way for fleet owners and retailers to check, all at once, if their vehicles are subject to a safety recall that they, or a previous owner, may have missed.For more information on the SMMT’s Vehicle Safety Recall Service visit: to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

OSU junior running back Ezekiel Elliott (15) falls to the ground after a carry in a game against Northern Illinois on Sept. 19 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 20-13. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorComing off another rather unconvincing win against Northern Illinois, Ohio State will have a chance to redeem itself on Saturday against Western Michigan. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. at Ohio Stadium.Here are five things that The Lantern’s sports editors Ryan Cooper and Kevin Stankiewicz will be on the lookout for during the game. Check back after the game to see how these points played out.The discombobulated offense’s turnover problemsThrough three games, OSU has turned the ball over a total of eight times. In all of college football, there are only eight teams that have more turnovers than the Buckeyes.Coach Urban Meyer expressed his concern with that statistic during the week, calling the rate at which his team has turned it over “alarming.”Against Virginia Tech, OSU had three of them — two fumbles and an interception by redshirt junior Cardale Jones. The Hokies scored on each of the ensuing possessions, totaling 17 points.The Buckeyes didn’t cough it up against Hawaii in Week 2, but against NIU the turnover problems reappeared as OSU had five.But unlike against VT, points off turnovers were less of an issue as the Huskies only managed 10 points because twice OSU’s defense forced an NIU to turn the ball over on the ensuing possession.Meyer said the coaching staff will focus during the week on fixing the issue of turnovers.It will be interesting to see if the Buckeyes were able to address the problem enough during practice, as a team on a quest to repeat as national champions cannot afford to be giving opponent’s extra possessions, especially with Big Ten play on the horizon.Will Elliott’s explosiveness reappear?Junior running back Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for over 100 yards in all three contests in 2015 but the preseason Heisman Trophy hopeful has yet to look like the same player who carried OSU on his back during last year’s postseason games by running for over 200 yards thrice.The only hint of that player came on his first run of the season by way of an 80-yard touchdown. But other than that one play, Elliott’s explosiveness has been kept in check.Sans the 80-yarder, the St. Louis native’s season long rush is only 13 yards.With Elliott, it is more of question of when — not if — he regains his form from 2014. Fortunately for the Buckeyes, this weekend might be a good chance for him as Western Michigan’s run defense has been dreadful.WMU ranks 109th in the nation in run defense. Opponents have been torching the Broncos on the ground. Michigan State had 196 yards in Week 1, but that pales in comparison to the 413 Georgia Southern racked up the following game.So, as for when Elliott’s explosiveness will resurface, Saturday could be the day. Who will Jones be able to throw the ball to?Three.That’s the number of receptions the players on OSU’s roster listed as wide receivers and not named Michael Thomas have this season.While the redshirt junior Thomas has done his part despite getting the defense’s top assignment with 10 catches for 158 yards and two scores, the Buckeyes have had an extremely tough time finding any other options.Redshirt senior Corey Smith has two catches for 15 yards and redshirt freshman Johnnie Dixon has a 29-yarder.Beyond that, receivers such as redshirt freshmen Parris Campbell and Terry McLaurin have given Meyer nothing in terms of catching the ball. Campbell, who had two drops in the opening game, is also expected to miss at least a week with a leg injury suffered early against Northern Illinois.When sophomore Noah Brown went down with a broken leg before the season, many speculated about how thin OSU’s receiving corps might be.This has to be considered worse than imagined, however, and is a big reason for the offensive struggles thus far.While players like sophomore H-back Curtis Samuel and redshirt senior tight end Nick Vannett have kept the offense clinging to life, a true wideout not named Thomas stepping up could be the only true remedy.Can Braxton find his early effectiveness?After an electrifying start to the season for H-back Braxton Miller, the redshirt senior has seen his usefulness dwindle each week.Against VT, Miller caught two passes for 78 yards and a score and ran six times for 62 yards and another touchdown. He was undoubtedly the offensive star of that contest, and his spin move around a defender on his rushing touchdown was the highlight of the week.The following week against Hawaii, Miller actually had more touches, but with much less effectiveness. Meyer had his rushes come out of direct snap runs, and his catches came mostly on shovel passes across the middle. In all, he finished with two catches for 16 yards and eight runs for 57 yards, but did not find the end zone.Then last week against NIU, Miller had just seven yards on four carries. He was targeted once by Jones, but a miscommunicated route led to the interception that caused Meyer to pull Jones out of the game.As discussed above, the OSU offense is struggling to stay afloat from a major lack of playmakers. Miller could be the answer to Meyer’s prayers, but whether it’s because of the learning curve of a new position or just not being used correctly, he has not been a big help in OSU’s two home games. Before beginning Big Ten play next week, the Buckeyes will need the former quarterback to rediscover his playmaking abilities.Who wants the sack lead?OSU’s defensive line is arguably the best in the nation, with nine different players already being involved in at least one sack. But with only so many hits on the quarterback to go around, no one is off to a huge individual start.Three players — redshirt sophomore linebacker Darron Lee, redshirt freshman defensive end Sam Hubbard and redshirt sophomore defensive end Tyquan Lewis — have 2.5 sacks each to tie for the team lead.Lewis paced the way early with 1.5 sacks against VT, Lee pulled in the season-high of two sacks against Hawaii and Hubbard was credited with 1.5 against NIU.Lurking in the wings as well is junior Joey Bosa. The defensive end was suspended for the opener, had his first sack of the year called back due to penalty against Hawaii and combined with Hubbard for a sack last week.While Bosa commands double teams on every play — and quite often triple teams — it is hard to rule out a guy who had 13.5 sacks last year for putting his name in the sack-lead hat. At the very least, Bosa’s presence makes it easier for other players to get through the offensive line, something Hubbard said Bosa does not let him forget. read more

Then-sophomore pitcher John Kuchno throws the ball during a game against Northwestern May 6, 2012, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU won, 4-1.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAfter ending their last trip to Florida on a two game losing skid, Ohio State’s baseball team made sure to end their second trip on a much higher note.The Buckeyes sent three opponents packing in Orlando, Fla., this weekend at the UCF Baseball Tournament, defeating Central Florida, The Citadel and Oklahoma.“It’s huge to get the sweep and finish the weekend,” coach Greg Beals said. “We didn’t finish last weekend the way we wanted to so it was big to make a statement against three good opponents.”Against the Sooners on Sunday, freshman pitcher Zach Farmer started his second game for the Buckeyes and bounced back nicely after getting roughed up a bit last weekend.After giving up one run in the first, Farmer settled down going 5.1 innings and only allowing two hits.The Buckeyes scored three of their six runs in the fourth inning with junior outfielder Pat Porter driving in two runs and scoring the third on a wild pitch.The teams traded runs for the remainder of the game, with OSU coming out on top 6-3 after a two run eighth inning.Saturday’s game versus The Citadel was a matchup of lefties as the Buckeyes’ junior Ryan Riga took the mound against the Bulldogs’ junior James Reeves. The start was delayed three and a half hours because of heavy rain.Although The Citadel took the lead in the first inning, OSU used a four run second inning to pull itself back into the lead after RBIs from senior outfielder Tim Wetzel, sophomore infielder Troy Kuhn and two from Porter.The Citadel tied things up in the fifth inning setting the stage for freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson.Dawson came to the plate with three men on base in the bottom of the ninth and no men out. His single to left field was enough for Kuhn to score from third, winning the game for OSU, 5-4.Kuhn said winning the first two games of the weekend was a confidence booster for the Buckeyes.“I think we gained a lot of momentum from the first two games. Just real exciting games and late finishers.” Kuhn said. “We came out on top (this weekend) and I think those first two games meant a lot.”Even though the Buckeyes won Friday’s matchup against Central Florida by six runs, the game wasn’t a blowout as the score line suggests.If not for two runs in the top of the ninth inning, OSU would have come away with a loss, but a two run single from Wetzel sent the game to extra innings, with the teams tied 3-3.After neither team scored in the 10th, 11th or 12th innings, the Buckeyes scored six in the 13th, and held Central Florida scoreless for the 9-3 victory.“The whole weekend, we grinded.” Porter said. “We never gave up. We trusted our pitchers and trusted our hitters to get it done.”The Buckeyes are next scheduled to play Friday in the Keith LeClair Classic in Greenville, N.C. First pitch is set for 1:05 p.m. read more

first_imgWhile wind turbines allow us to harness the power of the wind to create a renewable source of energy, their spinning blades can also serve as a potential danger to wildlife. But a group of researchers in the UK may have found a solution to keep birds and bats away from the blades: by painting them purple.According to the report, the reason that so many birds and bats flock to the turbines is that they offer up a feast of bugs to feed on. But by painting the turbines a different color, as opposed to the standard white or light grey, it may deter insects from landing on them, which in turn would keep birds and bats safe from the blades.AdChoices广告“Our major conclusion from this work is that turbine paint colour could be having a significant impact on the attraction of insect species to the structure, both during the day and at night,” PhD student Chloe Long told the BBC. By testing various colors, the team determined that purple was the least attractive to insects and that white and grey where two of the most attractive colors.“If the solution were as simple as painting turbine structures in a different colour this could provide a cost-effective mitigation strategy,” explained Long. However, there may be other factors that make the turbines attractive to insects, such as the heat they give off.last_img read more

first_imgWhen you decide to purchase a song or album from a digital music service like iTunes you expect the very best quality for your money. The problem is, that quality is downgraded before it even leaves the music publisher.When the music is recorded in a studio it typically gets captured at 24-bit. But before the music is distributed on CD or digitally the quality is downgraded to 16-bit, so it will never sound as good as the original studio version.Apple apparently wants to change that, and is talking to music publishers about getting the original 24-bit version on to iTunes. That bit of information comes via Jimmy lovine, chairman of Universal Music Group’s Interscope-Geffen-A&M record label.While demonstrating a HP TouchPad tablet with Beats Audio tech in it he commented:We’ve gone back now at Universal, and we’re changing our pipes to 24 bit. And Apple has been great. We’re working with them and other digital services — download services — to change to 24 bit. And some of their electronic devices are going to be changed as well. So we have a long road ahead of us. This suggests that future iPhone and iPod products will be capable of 24-bit audio playback, where as Macs and iTunes already support it.Read more at CNN, via AppleInsiderMatthew’s OpinionYou can see why Apple would push for this “highest quality” audio from music publishers on a couple of fronts. First of all it’s an opportunity to introduce a new tier of quality on iTunes allowing more to be charged for 24-bit tracks. It also means an advantage over other digital music stores that don’t have 24-bit tracks to offer.At the moment there aren’t many portable media players that support 24-bit playback, so iPhone and iPod devices can advertise such playback in new models as a feature competitors don’t have. Higher quality music, higher prices, and the need to buy a new protable device to listen to it on all equals lots of profit for Apple. You can see why this could be seen as important internally at the company.I see no reason for the publishers to say no, especially if Apple is going with a higher price for the higher quality. How soon it happens is anyone’s guess, but as soon as one publisher signs up then the others will likely follow quickly, not wanting to miss out on the potential extra revenue.last_img read more

first_imgWindows 10 Fall Creators Update: Limit Windows Update bandwidth by Martin Brinkmann on July 09, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: July 13, 2017 – 15 commentsMicrosoft added a new feature to the Windows Update functionality of the most recent Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Insider build that allows you to limit the Windows Update bandwidth.Microsoft did not mention the new feature in the Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16237 post on the official Microsoft website.Note: This is a preview build feature. While it is likely that it will be part of the Fall Creators Update version that Microsoft plans to release in a couple of months, there is no guarantee for that as Microsoft may pull the feature in a future build before it its RTM.Limit Windows Update BandwidthAll current versions of Windows ship without settings to limit the bandwidth of Windows Update. While you can use third-party programs such as Netbalancer Free to limit the bandwidth usage, it is probably not something that most Windows users consider doing.The new functionality is baked in which means that you just have to know where to activate it to make use of it.Start by opening the Settings application. The easiest way to do that is to use the shortcut Windows-I. Go to Update & Security when the Settings window opens, and click on the advanced options link on the page.Advanced OptionsLocate the “delivery optimization” link on the Advanced Options page and click on it. You can make several changes to the behavior of Windows Update on it, for instance to pause updates, or bypass the policy to download updates only on non-metered connections.Delivery OptimizationYou need to click on “advanced options” (again) on the Delivery Optimization page that opens. Before you do, I suggest you check the “allow downloads from other PCs” setting. While it states downloads only in the setting title, it actually means downloads and uploads.So, if you don’t want that your PC uploads update data to PCs from the local network, or local network and Internet, you better make sure the preference is set to off.Advanced optionsThe Advanced Options page, the second that goes by that name (probably subject to change), lists three bandwidth limiting options.Download limit — limit how much bandwidth is used for downloading updates in the background.Upload limit — limit how much bandwidth is used for uploaded updates to other PCs on the Internet.Monthly upload limit — limits the monthly upload bandwidth.If you have disabled the “download from other PCs” option, which coincidentally also determines if update data from the PC is uploaded to other Windows PCs, then you may ignore the upload settings as they serve no purpose.The download limit supports a percent value only. You can set the limit to as low as 5% of the overall bandwidth, or all the way up to 100%.If your Windows 10 PC is configured to upload update data to other PCs of the network and/or the Internet, you may limit the upload bandwidth as well using the same percentage slider.You may also set a total upload limit for update data; the lowest value is 5 Gigabytes per month, the highest 500 Gigabytes per month.Microsoft has added a handy Activity Monitor page to Windows 10 that you find linked on the Delivery Optimization page.It lists download and upload statistics for updates, provides separate values for “from Microsoft”, “from PCs on your local network” and “from PCs on the Internet”, and displays average speeds, again separated in “user initiated” and “background transfers”.Group PolicyMicrosoft added the option to limit the maximum download bandwidth in percent to the Group Policy Editor as well in the past (it is not a new policy).You find the option under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Deliver Optimization > Maximum Download Bandwidth (percentage).Enable the policy there, and change the value of 0, which means unlimited, to a value between 1 and 100 percent.Administrators may configure the policies “maximum download bandwidth (in KB/s)”, “maximum upload bandwidth (in KB/s)”, “monthly upload data cap (in GB)”, and  “minimum background QoS (in KB/s)” as well there.VerdictThe option to limit the bandwidth that Windows Update uses while downloading or uploading updates in the background is a welcome addition in my opinion.

Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Top Stories Baron said a lack of evidence should have led to the case being dismissed long ago.

She told The Associated Press that she learned of the hearing from news outlets but confirmed the news with the court.Ahsan said Rezaian will go on trial alongside his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, who is a reporter for The National newspaper in Abu Dhabi, and a freelance photographer who worked for foreign media. The photographer’s name has not been made public.Ahsan reiterated that Rezaian has been charged with “espionage” and other offenses, and said it was not yet clear whether the trial would be open. Ahsan declined to comment further because of the sensitivity of the case.Iranian officials have previously said Rezaian will stand trial in a Revolutionary Court, which mainly hears sensitive cases in closed sessions.Rezaian, his wife and two photojournalists were detained on July 22 in Tehran. All were later released except Rezaian, who was born and spent most of his life in the United States, and who holds both American and Iranian citizenship. Iran does not recognize dual nationalities for its citizens.U.S. officials have repeatedly pressed Iran to release Rezaian and other jailed Americans, including during talks on the sidelines of negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear program. Iran and world powers hope to reach a comprehensive agreement on its contested nuclear program by the end of June. The Post also has repeatedly criticized Rezaian’s detention and the handling of his case, and alleges he has been subjected to harsh interrogations and lengthy stretches of time in solitary confinement. It says he has only been allowed one substantive meeting with his lawyer — in the presence of official translators — to prepare for trial.“The serious criminal charges that Jason now faces in Iran’s Revolutionary Court are not supported by a single fact,” Executive Editor Martin Baron said in a statement Tuesday after the court date was announced.“The proceedings against him have been anything but fair and open – if they had been, Jason would never have been subjected to outrageous prison conditions, obstacles to selecting a lawyer, limited time to prepare a defense, and an inadequate window on the case that Iran plans to bring against him.”The judge assigned to hear the case, Abolghassem Salavati, is known for his tough sentencing and, according to the Post, rejected several other choices of lawyers to represent Rezaian. Salavati has presided over numerous politically sensitive cases, including those of protesters arrested in connection with demonstrations that followed the 2009 presidential elections.
