Ford recalls 440,000 vehicles

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Ford is recalling more than 440,000 vehicles in North America to fix separate problems that can cause engine fires and doors to fly open unexpectedly.The recalls will hit the company’s bottom line in the first quarter of this year. Ford said in a Wednesday filing with securities regulators that the recalls will cut pretax earnings by $295 million.The engine fire recall covers over 230,000 vehicles in North America. In North America, it includes Escape SUVs from the 2014 model year, plus the 2014 and 2015 compact Fiesta ST, the 2013 and 2014 Fusion midsize car and the 2013 through 2015 Transit Connect small van. In Europe, the recall covers 2010 through 2015 C-Max hybrid and Focus small car, and the 2013 through 2015 Transit Connect van. All the vehicles have 1.6-Liter four-cylinder turbocharged engines.A lack of coolant circulation could cause the motor to overheat, causing a crack in the cylinder head, according to Ford. If that happens, pressurized oil can leak through the crack, and if it hits a hot surface, could cause and engine fire. The company says it has 29 reports of fires in the U.S. and Canada, but no injuries.Owners can continue to drive the vehicles safely and park them in garages or other structures, spokeswoman Elizabeth Weigandt said. The company will mail customers instructions from the owner’s manual on how to check and refill coolant. Dealers also will check coolant levels for owners. If vehicles leak coolant or overheat, they should be taken to a dealer, Weigandt said.If parts are available, dealers will install a coolant level sensor and a warning light on the dashboard telling owners if the coolant level is low, Weigandt said. She did not know if the company will fix coolant leaks but said she would check.The company also is adding 211,000 vehicles to a 2015 recall to replace faulty door latches. That recall covers the 2014 Fiesta and the 2013 and 2014 Fusion and Lincoln MKZ. The expansion brings the total from the 2015 recall to nearly 757,000.Door latches have been a major problem for Ford vehicles during the past three years, resulting in investigations by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and recalls of over 3 million vehicles.The company recalled more than 2.3 million vehicles last fall because their door latches weren’t working properly. That recall included the 2012-2015 Ford Focus and the 2013-2015 Ford Escape and C-Max.In May 2014, Ford recalled 692,700 Escape SUVs from the 2013-2014 model years because their doors didn’t latch properly.In the latest recall, a pawl in the door latch can break, either stopping the doors from closing or causing them to open while the cars are being driven. The company says it’s unaware of any crashes or injuries involving the vehicles added to the 2015 recall.Last year door latch recalls costing the company $640 million.The cost of the latest recall is included in Ford’s most recent earnings guidance, the company said in a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

New York City supermarket protest: ‘Bring back WIC!’

first_imgNeighborhood activists rallied outside one of three Gristedes supermarkets located in the Chelsea area of Manhattan on Oct. 28. They were there to demand that the grocery chain reverse its decision to stop accepting Women, Infants, and Children vouchers.WIC is a program that subsidizes certain food and baby formula purchases. Although it is flawed (mainly because of the influence of agribusiness for profit), WIC does help somewhat with prenatal and early childhood nutrition for families living up to twice the poverty level — regardless of immigration status.Residents of three nearby low and moderate income housing complexes, including mothers who had used WIC to get a break from high grocery prices while pregnant, nursing or otherwise feeding a child under 6, spoke to shoppers and passersby over a microphone provided by the Solidarity Center.The group chanted “Bring back WIC!” and pointed out how much Gristedes owner John Catsimatidis has enriched his own family off the profits made in this neighborhood.Chelsea Rising organizer Lizette Colon denounced the rejection of WIC at these stores as another racist act that makes the cost of living in a gentrified area prohibitive, even for those whose own rent is still affordable.

UN body urged to take position on export of surveillance material

first_img June 19, 2014 – Updated on January 25, 2016 UN body urged to take position on export of surveillance material Businesses sell technology to authoritarian regimes that allows them to carry out large-scale online surveillance of their population. This technology has been and still is used in Libya, Egypt, Morocco and Ethiopia to arrest, imprison and torture. The companies that provide this technology cannot claim to be unaware of this.In a 28 April report, the UN Working Group on the Issue of Human Rights and Transnational Corporations and other Business Enterprises presented the results of a poll of 153 businesses in 39 countries. Asked about their policies on protecting human rights, they mentioned internal mechanisms such as codes of conduct and ethics committees. RWB has nonetheless seen that such measures are not enough to prevent the sale of surveillance technology to authoritarian regimes.Nearly half of the companies that answered the questionnaire said that effective enforcement of national laws would be likely to improve respect for human rights in their business activities (paragraph 45).If there were effective regulation, businesses that export surveillance technology would be forced to suspend trade with countries that use their technology to spy on their citizens, and would be forced to account for the products they have sold. During a forum on “Business and Human Rights” in December 2013, Nobel peace laureate Joseph Stiglitz insisted on the need for a binding international agreement enshrining norms of corporate responsibility that could hold companies accountable for their human rights abuses (page 8).We must now pass from principles to action.In a written submission to the Human Rights Council on 26 May (attached), Reporters Without Borders called for an international convention on corporate responsibility and human rights.Such a convention would oblige states to incorporate provisions regulating the export of surveillance technology into national law. They would be also be required to establish effective recourse for individuals who have been the victims of surveillance and the terrible consequences that can result from it (arrest, imprisonment, physical violence and torture).In March 2013, Reporters Without Borders published an “Enemies of the Internet” report on surveillance that identified five countries (Syria, China, Iran, Bahrain and Vietnam) and five businesses (Gamma, Trovicor, Hacking Team, Amesys and Blue Coat) as “champions of surveillance.” In April 2013, RWB provided its recommendations on corporate responsibility to the Working Group for its December 2013 session.

‘Bad weather’s on the way; I can smell it’

Five minutes later, it began to rain.My granny could forecast weather by simply looking at the sky or reading other signs. She could smell bad weather. She would stick her head out the screen door, take a deep breath and exhale gloom and doom.“Bad weather’s on the way. It’s in the air. I can smell it,” she would say.

Sponsored Content That would send Mama into a tizzy. She was afraid of bad weather. My granny took great pleasure in forecasting bad weather and in upsetting Mama.Not only could my granny smell bad weather coming, she could read the weather signs by the way bees buzzed; the way skunks sprayed and the way the sun set.The most tell-tale signs of foreboding weather came from peculiar acting dogs.My granny said all dogs are right-sided. So, when a dog starts acting peculiar by favoring its left side, there’s a storm brewing somewhere. And, if a dog chases its tail to the left, there will be a lightning storm the likes of which has never been seen. If a hungry dog buries a bone, there’s going to be a frog strangler for sure.Mama said my granny did her forecasting early in the morning so she would have all day to be right.It took me only five minutes to be right.The sun did peep out on Friday and it was cooler but the “brain” somehow missed the rain.That got me wondering how many, or how few, people these days look out the door to see what the weather will be like. And, I wonder, too, how many people can talk warts off a person.My granny could do that. How she did it was a close-kept secret.I spent many hours holding an old toad frog and rubbing its back trying to get a wart so my granny could talk it off. Then, I would know what she said to take it off.My granny could tell fortunes by reading the lines in your hand, how long you would live, how many children you would have. She could tell whether a baby would be born a boy or girl by tying a chinaberry on a string and swinging it over the baby. She could make a baby walk by standing it behind a door and sweeping its legs down. On the ninth day, the baby would walk.She could cure a sore throat by pushing up the pallet in your mouth with the end of spoon with salt and pepper on it. My granny had other talents that I’ll not reveal. But, my only talent is standing in the open door and forecasting what weather the day will bring.

Troy based subscription service highlights local, state products on national level

first_imgLatest Stories Published 8:25 pm Wednesday, June 24, 2020 Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “Bama in a Box,” a locally owned subscription service, was launched from Troy a little more than  72 hours ago with 100-plus drop-off sites in Alabama, Virginia, Indiana and Oregon.Each box contained edible and non-edible products that were made in Alabama and one of those products was made here in Pike County.“Bama in a  Box” is the brainchild of Angi Horn Stalnaker, who designed the business for the dual the purpose of giving a boost to the economy as COVID-19 lingers while promoting Alabama products nationwide. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day And, out of that thought, “Bama in a Box” was born.Stalnaker said the idea  was to promote Alabama-made products via a subscription service. “If we boxed a mixture of edible and non-edible products and shipped them all across the country, that would be an affordable way for these businesses, large and small, to promote and market their products.”So, “Bama in a Box” became a reality. Sponsored Content By Jaine Treadwell Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article Skipcenter_img By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen Each box contains from five to seven Bama-made products, edible and non-edible, and one is a product of Pike County.Subscriptions are offered monthly and quarterly (three months). Both are auto renewable.Month-to-month subscriptions are $39.95, tax included, shipping is $7. The quarterly subscription offers a savings of $15.Stalnaker said the first “Bama in a Box” included a bath balm from Amy Jinright’s  Southern Sensations on the Square in downtown Troy.Future boxes will include products from Whaley Pecans, jewelry by Kim Edwards, Dale’s Steak Sauce and everything from grits and dog food to furniture polish, olive oils  and toothbrushes.“It is amazing all of the products that made here in Alabama,” Stalnaker said. “There are enough products that we can ship ‘Bama in a Box’ for seven years without repeating a product. ‘Bama in a Box’ is a great way to support our local companies by promoting Alabama products.Each “Bama in a Box” will include a flyer with information about the products included and where they are available for purchase.Stalnaker said special “Bama in a Box” items also will be available for fundraisers for community charities. “Our local companies are the ones that support our local fundraisers and we will give them a percentage of the box sales as a way of showing appreciation for their support,” Stalnaker said. “Bama in a Box” is a new local business that promotes Alabama businesses and Alabama products and will, itself, be a good community partner.

So, why not take it a step further and encourage others, here in Alabama and across the country, to buy products ‘Made in Alabama.’”As Stalnaker did the research for the project, she found more than 500 Alabama-based companies in operation and many of them make products that are used or consumed daily.“Many of these are small businesses that don’t have large marketing budgets,” Stalnaker said. “So, what if there was an affordable way to market Alabama products locally and around the country?” You Might Like The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingWomen Only: Stretch This Muscle to Stop Bladder Leakage (Watch)Patriot Health ZoneHave an Enlarged Prostate?
