As a matter of first importance its long haul extend rather than an one-time film. Additionally, the devoted fanatics of shows generally show more backing. Don’t miss the best following up on primetime. With satellite TV you can have a bigger number of shows and a bigger number of choices than you ever envisioned.

A portion of the best acting stimulation originates from the TV. Demonstrates that you look for a considerable length of time are created and develop through the times. The best part around a TV arrangement is that despite the fact that the plot line and characters pretty much stick with it, the stories and connections that create between characters reflect change. Case in point, Friends was a demonstrate that continually changed as the year went on. The styles and design of the characters fundamentally changed with each one season, reflecting the times.

As the arrangement in the long run shuts down about whether you can perceive the amount the characters have developed through the years. Characters have hitched, some have gotten over character defects while others have created them much further, and normally the affection that initially existed between two characters is blessed through marriage or a deeper seeing between the two. A portion of the best plot lines to TV arrangement is an affection that is correct however for reasons unknown isn’t working right now. For instance, in Gray’s Anatomy in the middle of Derek and Meredith it takes seasons before they at long last take care of business. It’s recognized that they love each other, yet they can’t get the timing right. On the other hand, the best part is the show’s finale when they at last put everything past them, tackle their issues, and get together uncertainly.

The hardest shows to draw off are the twist off arrangement. After Friends Joey endeavored and neglected to snare and captivate the crowds. Elaine from Seinfeld likewise fizzled at a twist off arrangement. For reasons unknown on the off chance that they’re going to endeavor to utilize the same story line we need to see the same characters, and in a twist off arrangement that is absolutely what’s absent. Nonetheless, a few characters do proceed onward to different arrangement effectively, actually when their characters have been appended to a certain persona. Case in point, the new show on ABC Cougar Town with Courtney Cox. She has been everlastingly associated with her persona on Friends. On the other hand, in this new arrangement she’s surely not the dorky and subtle element fixated Monica from her most mainstream show. Presently she’s attempting on an alternate look as a hot, more seasoned lady in the new arrangement.

Knight to Leave Nike Top Job

Thursday, November 18, 2004

Reuters has reported that Philip Knight, co-founder of shoe giant Nike, Inc. will step down as the company’s CEO and President on December 28. He will be replaced by William Perez, current CEO of S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc.

While industry experts consider this to be a good move as the company looks to expand beyond its core market, analyst Jamelah Reddy expressed surprise that an individual from outside the company was brought in rather than tapping one of Nike’s co-presidents. Reddy said Knight was “leaving big shoes to fill.”

The move is a blow to activist organizations which have targeted the company for its use of sweatshop labor and other practices. For example, the progressive anti-consumerism magazine Adbusters recently introduced their “Black-Spot Sneaker” which they promote as being “for just one thing: kicking Phil Knight’s ass”.

Nike spokesman Kirk Stewart said Perez was chosen for his experience in dealing with international markets and brand-building, an important skill as Nike continues expansion internationally. Nike’s international sales now surpass domestic sales, reports Bloomberg.

According to ESPN, Knight was responsible for Nike’s endorsement contract with Michael Jordan, signed in 1984 when he was still a rookie with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan said of Knight, “To me, Phil Knight will always be recognized as a sports marketing visionary — he will always be a part of Nike. I learned so much about the industry from him and will always admire his drive and creativity.”

Knight, who according to Forbes gave no reason for his departure, intends to retain his position as the chairman of Nike’s board of directors. He will also hold on to his 28% voting share in the corporation, as well as his 92% share of the non-voting stock.

Apple cancels NBC Fall TV lineup on iTunes

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Monday, September 3, 2007

Due to a standoff between NBC Universal and Apple Inc. regarding pricing of NBC shows on iTunes, Apple Inc. has canceled NBC’s lineup of new shows. Currently, NBC shows can be downloaded for US$1.99. If Apple were to continue having the new season NBC shows available, NBC would require a download fee of $4.99, an increase of $3 per download. This is something that Apple is simply not willing to do to its customers.

The rift, encompassing all NBC news, entertainment and sports programming requires that Apple no longer offer NBC’s videos on iTunes after the current contract expires in December. In an effort to prevent disappointing iTunes customers, Apple has decided not to offer any of the NBC shows in September because they would have to pull the shows mid-season when the contract expires in December.

We are disappointed to see NBC leave iTunes because we would not agree to their dramatic price increase,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We hope they will change their minds and offer their TV shows to the tens of millions of iTunes customers.

London, England — As Paralympians ready for the Games which are set to open later this week, they have access to a world class fitness center inside the Paralympic Village which is designed to maximise their pre-Game preparations.

According to volunteers staffing the center, instead of being a single large room, as in Beijing, the building has numerous rooms. It, along with the adjacent Village Services Centre, is designed to be converted into a school after the games conclude. Rooms have been structured as a gym, an auditorium, and science laboratories.

Gym equipment is supplied by Technogym, an Italian firm that has supplied gym equipment for the Olympics since 2000.

Bad Credit Doesn’t Rule Out Unsecured Credit Cards

Filed in Trucks Leave a comment

By Bill Smith

Many people believe that because of their bad credit, unsecured credit cards are not available to them. While it may be more difficult, there are options for people with bad credit who want an unsecured credit card to build their credit or have available for use in an emergency. While a secured credit card is the most commonly recommended option for people with bad credit, unsecured credit cards ARE available – even for those with the worst credit.

Bad Credit: Unsecured Credit Cards vs. Secured Credit Cards

One of the easiest ways to get a credit card when you have bad credit is to opt for a secured credit card. With a secured credit card, you deposit money in a bank designated by the credit card company to serve as a ‘security deposit’ – an assurance that they’ll get their money if you default on payments. Depending on the lender, that deposit might be equal to your desired credit limit, or slightly higher or lower. A security deposit of $300, for instance, might get you a $150 line of credit with one company, a $300 line of credit with another, and a $400 one with yet a third. The interest rate is generally competitive, since the company has a guarantee of getting its money if you don’t make payments.

An unsecured credit card requires no security deposit. A bad credit unsecured credit card will often have either a high APR (annual percentage rate), high fees, or both. How do the two stack up against each other? Here’s a comparison from two actual credit card offers that are sitting on my desk as I write:

Secured Credit Card

Security Deposit: $250

Annual Fee: $35

YouTube Preview Image

Setup Fee: $35

APR: 15.40%

Credit Limit Increases: $100 increments, each require $100 deposit

Bottom Line: It will cost you $370 to maintain a $250 credit limit for the first year, with at least $250 up front, at an APR of 15.40%. You’ll have $170 available credit upon receipt of your card. You’ll have to put up an additional $100 every time you want to increase your credit limit.

Bad Credit Unsecured Credit Card

Annual Fee: $48

Setup Fee: $29

Participation Fee: $72 (annual, billed at $6 monthly)

Program Fee: $95 (one time fee)

APR: 9.9%

Credit Limit Increases: $25 (per increase of $100, at their discretion)

Bottom line: It will cost you $244 for the first year, all of it billed to your credit card on your first statement, to maintain a $250 credit limit with an APR of 9.9%. You’ll have $72 credit available upon receipt of your card.

In the long run, while a bad credit unsecured credit card may cost you more, you won’t be tying up your money up front. Either card will help repair your credit as you make payments on time and regularly, but the unsecured card has an APR that’s almost 5% lower. You’re the only one who can decide which is the better option for you – but it makes sense to weigh all your options before you decide that your only way to have a credit card is with a security deposit.

Ford announces deep production cuts in response to growing losses

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Saturday, August 19, 2006

Ford has announced sweeping cuts of 21% (168,000 units) in its US and Canadian production, resulting in the partial closure of ten of its plants during the fourth quarter. The measure comes on top of existing turnaround plans announced in January, in which 25,000 to 30,000 positions should be cut and 14 plants closed by 2012.

Ford is the world’s third-largest automaker and the U.S.’s second-largest. However it has in recent years been struggling with poor profitability and shrinking market shares. In 2005 it lost $1.6 billion and recently the company reported a second quarter loss of $254 million and a 34% year-year decline in sales for the month of July.

George Pipas, director of sales analysis at Ford, points to rising gas prices having negative impact on the sale of the companies SUV lines as well as its sales leader, the F-series pickup truck as being the direct cause of the latest initiative.

So far the following plants are thought to be affected:

Ford’s stock fell 17 cents (2.1%) to $8 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Hydrogen fuel cell cars promoted in various states, but U.S. federal funding cut

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

American Secretary of Energy Steven Chu is cutting US$100 million dollars from hydrogen fuel cell vehicle research and diverting the remaining $69 million to hydrogen fuel cell research for household current.

Former president George W. Bush advocated the zero-emission vehicles and launched $1.2 billion for hydrogen fuel cell research over a number of years.

President Barack Obama is proposing a “corporate average fuel economy,” or CAFÉ, placing standards for gas mileage at 39 miles per gallon for cars and light trucks at 30 mpg.

“The probability of deploying hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles in the next 10 to 20 years is low.” said Tom Welch of the U.S. Department of Energy. “We asked ourselves, ‘Is it likely in the next 10 or 15, 20 years that we will convert to a hydrogen car economy?’ The answer, we felt, was ‘no,'” said Chu.

In response, the U.S. Fuel Cell Council and the National Hydrogen Association said, “The cuts proposed in the DOE hydrogen and fuel-cell program threaten to disrupt commercialization of a family of technologies that are showing exceptional promise and beginning to gain market traction. Fuel-cell vehicles are not a science experiment. These are real vehicles with real marketability and real benefits. Hundreds of fuel-cell vehicles have collectively logged millions of miles.”

“I just got the Clarity, which is a wonderful hydrogen vehicle,” said Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He lent his car to The Hydrogen Road Tour.

On Tuesday, The Hydrogen Road Tour began in Chula Vista, California. Twelve hydrogen fuel cell cars by seven auto makers will arrive in Vancouver, British Columbia June 3 for the Hydrogen + Fuel Cells 2009 conference, a global hydrogen and fuel cell event. “The point really is to raise awareness about fuel celled vehicles and hydrogen, their benefits both to energy efficiency and the environment as well as to consumers because we really believe these vehicles are going to be a market winner,” said Catherine Dunwoody, the Executive Director of the California Fuel Cell Partnership.

The Hydrogen Fuel Cells 2009 conference began June 1. “Our global environmental challenges, such as climate change, do not stop at the border,” ” said John Tak, conference Chair, “I am pleased that scientists, engineers, government representatives and businesspeople from more than 35 countries are coming to Vancouver, an active hub for hydrogen and fuel cell development, to help create solutions to these challenges.”

The Ohio Fuel Cell Symposium was held in North Canton, Ohio on Wednesday and Thursday. “The hydrogen and fuel cell industries are at a stage where they have the momentum and energy to accomplish some truly revolutionary things in terms of how they apply their technologies,” said William Whittenberger, president of Catacel Corp. These fuel cells produce electricity and exhaust carbon dioxide and water.

A hydrogen powered municipal street cleaning vehicle is currently being tested for the next year and half in Basel, Switzerland. “Our aim is to take fuel cell technology from the laboratory onto the street,” said Empa’s Internal Combustion Engines Laboratory Project Leader Christian Bach.

Dan Lutz, the fleet manager for the Beloit, Wisconsin public works department, experimented with retro-fitting his personal truck. The department now has a large pickup truck, a garbage truck, a recycling truck, a police squad car and a small pickup truck using hydrogen technology increasing gas mileage from 14 to 22 and 31 mpg. “We know the basic technology works, but the issue is, is it practical,” said City Manager Larry Arft, “Can it be used realistically?”

The drawback is that the technology may rely on platinum, a rare metal, or palladium. Infrastructure would need to be changed to supply hydrogen fueling stations. Critics are also concerned about hydrogen fuel storage and the costs of retro-fitting existing vehicles.
