Edmunds Black Friday isnt what it used to be

first_imgOver the last decade, Black Friday weekend became a bona-fide sales event in the car business. In 2015, for example, it accounted for more than 18 per cent of all car deals made that month.But Black Friday isn’t the sales juggernaut it once was.Just as other retailers now push “Early Black Friday” sales right after Halloween and online brands hype their Cyber Monday specials, carmakers have morphed Black Friday into Black November — and beyond. In 2017, Black Friday weekend represented less than 14 per cent of the month’s sales. Edmunds analysts expect this downward trend to continue this year.For car shoppers, the trend translates to greater flexibility and less stress. Here’s what you need to know about getting a great deal.THE LEFTOVER EFFECTThe sales season is extending partly because carmakers are more willing to let outgoing models linger at dealership lots.The trend showed up in earnest early this year. In March 2018, roughly 28 per cent of new vehicles sold were brand-new 2017 models. Compare that with the previous five years, where leftover inventory made up just 12 per cent of March sales on average.Edmunds analysts predict that at least 20 per cent of new vehicles for sale early next year will be 2018 models. Based on inventory levels of new 2018 models currently on dealer lots, expect to see a good supply of new 2018 midsize sedans, midsize SUVs and compact SUVs as late as March 2019, along with specials to move them out.If you’re a bargain hunter, that’s good news. Instead of having to shop on just one weekend, you have more time to snag a great deal.SHOULD I BUY NOW?Start price-shopping immediately if you know the make and model you want. Once you’ve got a good feel for how much the car will cost now, you may want to pull the trigger if you fall into any of these categories:— You’re planning to lease your next vehicle: Because of the way leases are calculated, waiting isn’t likely to help you.— Your local dealership is running an aggressive promotion: It’s possible that a dealership selling the brand you’re after might have a unique sales goal to hit. It could offer Black Friday incentives to get you to buy now. Free iPads, televisions or in-house zero per cent interest loans are some of the perks dealerships have used to entice shoppers in years past.— You’re looking for something specific: The longer you wait, the less selection you’ll have. While prices on 2018 models may continue their slide through the first quarter of 2019, a low price on the wrong vehicle is a bad compromise.— The vehicle you’re eyeing has a special low-interest rate offer: Interest rates are rising, and that trend is expected to continue. If you’ve found an attractive price on the right car, and the interest rate is a good one (given the times), you might want to make a deal. If you wait for a lower selling price but get saddled with a higher interest rate, you haven’t done yourself any favours.SHOULD I WAIT?You may want to consider holding off on your purchase if you fall into any of these categories:— You plan to purchase with cash: As cars languish on dealer lots, chances are that good prices will go even lower. If you’re paying cash and aren’t concerned with rising interest rates, waiting may save you money.— Your vehicle needs are flexible: Most of the hot products are going to be sold first. If you don’t mind selecting from what’s left in exchange for a lower selling price, it may make sense to wait.— Your credit is iffy: Maybe you can’t get a low interest rate now because of your credit profile, but you still want to get a heavily discounted clearance vehicle. Use this time to improve your credit standing so you’ll be able to take advantage of clearance pricing and a low interest rate in early 2019.EDMUNDS SAYS: Black Friday is still an excellent time to buy a car. But unlike the doorbuster deals at your local big-box retailer, the Black Friday specials at a car dealership are likely to be around well after the holiday weekend.____This story was provided to The Associated Press by the automotive website Edmunds.

Hero gardaí rescue child from sixth floor apartment as witness Senator calls

first_img 30,446 Views But that must be the subject of discussions with government, and now involving the Workplace Relations Commission and the Labour Court. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article “Hero” gardaí rescue child from sixth floor apartment as witness Senator calls for their pay to be hiked The ladder rescue happened on the Dock Road, Limerick, this morning. By David Raleigh 24 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3061132 Share838 Tweet Email Source: Shutterstock/think4photopA FINE GAEL Senator has said gardaí should be paid more after witnessing a member of the force rescuing a two-year old boy who was hanging out of a window at a six-storey apartment block this morning.The child was seen hanging out of the window from the second floor at the Mount Kennett apartment block, on the Dock Road, Limerick, around 11.30am.Garda Brian Delee, from Tipperary, based at Limerick’s Henry Street Garda Station, attended the scene with his colleague Ger Summerly, from Co Clare. Within seconds the quick-thinking officers procured a ladder from a passing van driver before Garda Delee courageously scaled 35 feet to ensure the boy’s safety.It’s believed the boy and his one-year old sister were being looked after by a relative at the time.Garda Delee said afterwards that he had no training scaling ladders but that “adrenaline took over”. “When you see a child, like that, you just go,” he added.FG Senator Kieran O’Donnell who witnessed the incident unfold, described the two uniformed gardai as “heroes”.“It just shows you the (Garda) rapid response and it shows you how important it is to have gardaí on the ground.”As he looked up at the window where the boy was hanging from, he added: “They are two very brave gardaí because it’s very, very high up. If the child had fallen at that distance I wouldn’t like to think about it.”Asked if he believed gardai should be paid more, Senator O’Donnell replied: “Clearly yes”. Dock Road, Limerickcenter_img The two gardai said said they made a judgement call, that they couldn’t take the risk in respect of the child’s life, to wait for the other emergency services to arrive, so they took it upon themselves to go up a ladder to ensure the child was safe.“As a father myself, I’m just reflecting in an honest way how fundamental and important gardaí are on the beat and generally are to our daily lives, in our safety, security, and daily life. What happened today shows what gardaí mean to the Irish public,” he added.If the two gardaí didn’t respond with the speed they did today, and if they didn’t act in the skilful way that they did, they may not have been able to ensure that child’s safety. I hope a speedy resolution can be found. Special caseSenator O’Donnell who lost his Dail seat in the last General Election added: “I believe the gardai are a special case, and I certainly am aware of the financial pressures, in particular that young gardaí are under.”I witnessed first-hand this morning how important gardaí are to our daily lives. The fact that two members of the force were on the scene very quickly, and acted in such a swift fashion, ensured the safety of this young child. Source: RollingNews.ieCity council employee Turlough McNamara, who also witnessed the incident, hailed the two gardaí and the van driver as “heroes”.“I looked up and saw a baby boy hanging over the window. I started to panic, I shouted at him, ‘go back go back’. He was hanging over the window with his stomach out over it.” Mr McNamara added: “It was frightening. A few of us screamed at the child to get back in. There was enough of us there that, if, God forbid he had jumped, we would have caught him.”Staff at Scanlon’s pharmacy, situated on the ground floor of the same building, alerted gardaí when they saw the child’s toys falling onto the ground outside their premises.“Toys hitting the ground”A member of staff, who did not want to be named said: “I heard the sound of the toys hitting the ground so I went out to have a look, but saw the little child at the window. I was shouting at him to stop and to go back from the window.”It looked like he was on a step or a lip on the window and his head was coming more towards me, so we decided to call the gardaí. I just stood there trying to coax him back, but the child didn’t understand, he was too young.Toys and clothes thrown out of the window by the toddler were strewn across the footpath and road below as gardaí followed by three fire trucks attached to the city and county fire service arrived.The worker added: “His whole head was over the window, but the opening was big enough that he could have come out.”The window opening wouldn’t have stopped his body, he could have fallen out.The van driver, Pat McMahon, an employee with local security firm, CU Security, who helped the gardaí, said: “I saw the Garda running up the road to the apartment block, and he saw the ladder on top of my van and he pointed to me, so I backed up around the corner and threw the ladder up to him.”I footed the ladder for him while he climbed up. It all worked out well.Mr McMahon, a father of two from Raheen, added: “I saw the child as I was driving up the road. He was leaving out the window around 40 feet up in the air. If the child hit the ground he was a goner.”Read: ‘Skeletal service’: These garda units will work tomorrow as most rank-and-file members go on strikeRead: Garda management says ‘technical error’ led to overpayment of probationers Nov 3rd 2016, 4:07 PM Short URL Thursday 3 Nov 2016, 4:07 PMlast_img read more

Des plants de riz de meilleure qualité créés grâce à la biotechnologie

first_imgDes plants de riz de meilleure qualité créés grâce à la biotechnologieDes chercheurs ont indiqué dimanche avoir mis au point une technique révolutionnaire qui permettrait de produire en très peu de temps des semences de riz résistantes et à fort rendement. Une nouvelle technique de biotechnologie totalement révolutionnaire vient d’être dévoilée par une équipe de chercheurs britanniques et japonais. Celle-ci permettrait de produire en un temps record des semences à fort rendement ou résistantes au changement climatique. Publiée dans la revue Nature Biotechnology, la technique consiste baptisée “MutMat” en fait à doper les mutations dans une plante souche afin de faciliter la détection des variantes génétiques qui lui confèrent ses qualités spécifiques. Une fois identifiés, les gènes associés à ces qualités (vitesse de croissance, rendement, résistance à la sécheresse, aux maladies, etc.) peuvent alors être réintroduits dans la plante souche “par un croisement classique. Cette approche n’utilise absolument aucune modification génétique de type OGM”, précise Sophien Kamoun, du Laboratoire Sainsbury de Norwich (Royaume-Uni). Mais jusqu’ici, développer une nouvelle variété de plante aux caractéristiques spécifiques (un “cultivar”) était un processus qui s’effectuait sur une période de cinq à dix ans. La technique “MutMat”, elle, permettrait de réduire ce délai à un an environ, estiment ses concepteurs. “Cela permet de trouver plus vite l’aiguille dans la botte de foin”, résume le Pr Kamoun dans un entretien téléphonique avec l’AFP. A titre d’exemple, les scientifiques ont mené une expérience sur un cultivar de riz “sauvage” appelé Hitomebore, originaire du nord du Japon. Après avoir “dopé” la capacité de cette souche à muter en l’exposant à un composé chimique, 1.500 variantes génétiques du même riz ont été retrouvées, chacune dotée de particularités distinctes. Toutes ces variantes d’Hitomebore ont ensuite été cultivées et parmi les 10.000 plants obtenus, les scientifiques dirigés par Ryohei Terauchi, du Centre de recherches sur les biotechnologies d’Iwate, ont sélectionné un “mutant” qui présentait un rendement particulièrement élevé. Il a alors suffi de croiser ce mutant avec la souche de riz originelle et à cultiver à son tour cette variante en rizière.Des plants modifiés capables de résister au sel À lire aussiL’axolotl, cet étonnant animal capable de se régénérer, révèle ses secretsEn comparant les deux génomes (celui du rejeton hybride et celui de l’Hitomebore d’origine), il a été facile de déterminer les modifications génétiques responsables du rendement élevé du mutant. Forts de cette première réussite avec le “MutMat”, les chercheurs ont depuis lors produit différents plants d’Hitomebore “mutant” capables de résister à une eau très saline. En effet, pour pousser dans de telles conditions, le riz doit pouvoir résister au sel. Or, de nombreuses rizières ont été inondées après le tsunami du 11 mars 2011, empêchant des replantations éventuelles.”Une fois que les gènes qui contribuent à cette résistance au sel auront été identifiés, ils pourraient être utilisés pour développer des cultivars de riz adaptés aux quelques 20.000 hectares de rizières qui ont été inondées par le tsunami le long de la côte septentrionale du Japon”, confirme ainsi l’étude.Le 23 janvier 2012 à 20:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

68 of employers in south west England offer salary sacrifice pension arrangements

first_imgMore than two-thirds (68%) of employer respondents in the south west of England enable staff to contribute to their workplace pension via a salary sacrifice arrangement, according to research by Benefiz.Its survey of 50 employers based in the south west of England that employ HR managers or directors, also found that 48% of respondents do not pay above the minimum employer contribution rate under auto-enrolment into workplace pensions.The research also found:94% of respondents provide employee benefits outside of a workplace pension for their staff.58% of respondents have set up a flexible benefits scheme or are considering doing so.62% of respondents have sourced the employee benefits they offer to staff directly from a provider, and 38% have done so via an adviser.90% of respondents provide childcare vouchers for employees, 63% offer a bikes-for-work scheme, 50% provide access to discounts and 40% offer a holiday buy and sell scheme.More than two-thirds (67%) of respondents provide group private medical insurance, and 10% offer dental insurance.73% of respondents offer group life benefits to staff, 30% offer group income protection (30%), and 13% provide group critical illness cover.69% of respondents have set up a governance committee to ensure good member outcomes from a workplace pension scheme.55% of respondents are not aware of the government’s increased allowance for pensions advice in the workplace, which is expected to come into effect from April 2017, and 19% are considering taking advantage of the higher allowance.Tim Gillingham, director at Benefiz, said: “It is clear that employers in the south west are having to compensate lower salaries by offering a range of employee benefits to staff. The main challenge employers face is the lack of access to local professional advice on the selection and design of these benefit packages.”last_img read more

Tax would require low to middleincome residents to pay higher share

first_imgThe House Finance Committee turned its attention Monday to a tax that Gov. Bill Walker included in the compromise package he proposed a week ago. The tax has been called a few different names, including a “head tax” and an “income tax.”Rep. Les Gara, D-Anchorage, speaks during a House Majority press availability in March. Gara prefers raising oil and gas taxes to a payroll tax. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Listen nowToday, House Finance aides referred to it as a payroll tax. That’s because it would only tax the money people are paid for their employment, either on their employer’s payroll or through self-employment. But other forms of income – like the money people make on investments – wouldn’t be taxed.Anchorage Democratic Rep. Les Gara said he’d rather have oil and gas companies pay more in taxes.“The wealthiest pay the lowest percentage of their income under this bill, the way it’s written,” Gara said of Senate Bill 12. “The lowest income pay the highest percentage of their income under the way this bill is written, which seems a little backwards to me – or quite backwards.”Under the current proposal, workers would pay one of five tax amounts – ranging from $50 for people making less than $20,000 per year to $500 for those paid more than $500,000.Arnold Liebelt, an aide to Homer Rep. Paul Seaton, said the payroll tax could be changed to increase the number of tax levels, or to make the effect more similar across the income spectrum.“There’s so many different ways that this can be sliced and diced,” Liebelt said.North Pole Republican Rep. Tammie Wilson was skeptical of the tax. She noted that under the current proposal, some self-employed people would be able to deduct expenses before paying the tax, while employees wouldn’t.“It’s another thing, just to bring up – that when we’re trying to be fair, ‘fair’ is something you go to in the summertime,” Wilson said. “You can’t always be fair when it comes to taxes.”Both the House and Senate have passed bills to close most of the gap between what the state government spends and what it raises. They would draw from Permanent Fund earnings and reduce Permanent Fund dividends. But the House majority wants to set dividends at a higher level than the Senate. And while the House wants to raise taxes on income and on oil and gas companies, the Senate prefers spending cuts.The special session will end on Friday. The Legislature has until the end of the month to pass a budget to avoid a state government shutdown.last_img read more

Convention of the excluded in Sreemangal

first_imgWith the slogan ‘Leaving no one behind’, a two-day convention of the marginal and excluded communities begins in Sreemangal on Thursday.Representatives of the tea communities, trade unions, ethnic communities and other excluded groups, the civil society and community-based organisations, state actors, human rights organisations and cultural groups are expected to join the convention and cultural festival.Its aim is to bring the challenge of exclusion and marginalisation – major feature of poverty – into the national focus, according to organisers.Eminent economist former caretaker government adviser Wahiduddin Mahmud is scheduled to address the convention as chief guest.Four organisations – Power and Participation Research Centre (PPCR), Society for Environment and Human Development (SEHD), Christian Commission for Development in Bangladesh (CCDB) and Gram Bikash Kendra – organised the convention as part of a multi-year initiative.At the convention, the organisers will share findings of relevant studies and analyses and will try to come out with recommendations on how to deal with the issues of marginalisation and exclusion, said a news release issued on Wednesday.There are a lot of marginalised and excluded people living in Bangladesh, who speak different languages and have different cultures. There are 27 small ethnic communities in Bangladesh, according to government census.last_img read more

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD launches March 4 new details

first_imgNintendo has been on a roll over the last few years with releases of updated versions of games from The Legend of Zelda series. The latest entry to get the digital spit and polish is Twilight Princess. Nintendo has announced that the HD version of the game will be released on the Wii U on March 4. In addition, more details were revealed as to what makes this game different from the original Wii title besides having prettier graphics.Since this is a Wii U title, Twilight Princess HD will have Gamepad functionality. Players can now access the map, manage their inventory, and even transform into Wolf Link instantly without having to pause the game. The Gamepad can also be used to access Miiverse, where players can decorate their posts with dozens of Twilight Princess inspired Miiverse stamps. The game will also support off-screen gameplay on the Gamepad.A new item called the Ghost Lantern will be useful for completing certain quests in the game. There will also be some in-game adjustments meant to make things a bit easier for players. The amount of Tears of Light that need to be collected has been reduced from 16 to 12, the number of Rupees players can hold has been increased, and Rupees found in treasure chests will no longer return to chests if players’ wallets are full.There will be a new challenging Hero Mode available. In this mode, which can be accessed right from the beginning, players will take twice the normal damage and hearts used to replenish health will not be found. The game will also be mirrored, meaning that the world and dungeons will be reversed. Also, tapping the Ganondorf Amiibo on the Gamepad in Hero Mode will cause Link to take four times the damage.As we reported before, the game will also come with a brand new dungeon called The Twilight Cave. However, the dungeon can only be unlocked by using the Wolf Link Amiibo that comes with the limited edition bundle of the game, or which can be bought separately. The limited edition bundle will also come with an audio CD that contains a selection of songs from the game’s soundtrack.last_img read more
