Lowes closing 31 Canadian properties 20 stores in US amid restructuring

first_imgBOUCHERVILLE, Que. – Lowe’s Companies Inc. is reducing its Canadian footprint by closing 31 properties across the country in a bid to streamline its business.The home improvement company said Monday in addition to closing 27 stores, it will also shutter two regional support centres in Mississauga, Ont. and St. John’s, N.L., a truss plant in St. John’s, N.L. and a block plant in Kamloops, B.C. as part of a plan to focus instead on the most profitable parts of its business.Among the 27 stores set to close by the end of January are nine in Ontario, nine in Quebec, six in Newfoundland and Labrador, two in Alberta and one in British Columbia.Sylvain Prud’homme, chief executive of Lowe’s Canada, did not say how many employees would be affected by the closures, but said the changes will allow the company to improve collaboration between its banners to better serve customers.“Everything will be done to ensure a smooth transition until the stores are closed, and Lowe’s Canada will support impacted employees, including by transferring eligible employees to other locations within our network whenever possible,” Prud’homme said in a statement.In addition to the 31 locations the brand is closing in Canada, it will also axe 20 stores in the U.S.The Canadian closures amount to a reduction of about three per cent of the brand’s total retail network square footage.The company currently has 68 Lowe’s and 430 Rona stores in the country — part of its network of 2,390 home improvement locations across North America, including Reno-Depot, Dick’s Lumber, Contractor First and Ace locations it also owns.Lowe’s Canadian business is based in Boucherville, Que. and has more than 630 corporate and independent affiliate dealer stores.David Soberman, a University of Toronto professor specializing in marketing and retail, said Lowe’s 2016 acquisition of Rona Inc. in a deal valued at $3.2 billion. has likely fuelled some of the Canadian cuts.“They probably had too many locations,” he said. “Now, this will mean people will have to drive a bit further to find a Lowe’s or a Rona store.”He said the company has also been facing fierce competition from fellow home improvement businesses Home Depot Inc. and Canadian Tire Inc. and to some extent, Costco Wholesale Corp. and Walmart Inc., which are “extremely powerful” and stock some home and garden products.E-commerce giants including Amazon Inc. have also posed a threat because of their efficiency, but Soberman said their impact on Lowe’s is limited because many construction and do-it-yourself products are bulky, heavy and cost more to ship — “not things that are suited to online retail.”Companies in this story: (TSX:CTC)last_img read more

Ethiopia set to send crashed Boeing jets black box abroad

first_imgHejere: The black box from the Boeing jet that crashed and killed all 157 people on board will be sent overseas for analysis but no country has been chosen, an Ethiopian Airlines spokesman said Wednesday, as much of the world grounded or barred the plane model and grieving families arrived at the disaster site. In an interview with The Associated Press, Asrat Begashaw said the airline has “a range of options” for the data and voice records of the flight’s last moments. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping”What we can say is we don’t have the capability to probe it here in Ethiopia,” he said. An airline official has said one recorder was partially damaged. The Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft crashed six minutes after takeoff Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. The disaster is the second with a Max 8 plane in just five months. While some aviation experts have warned against drawing conclusions until more information on the latest crash emerges, much of the world, including the entire European Union, has grounded the Boeing jetliner or banned it from their airspace. Ethiopian Airlines, widely seen as Africa’s best-managed airline, grounded its remaining four 737 Max 8s. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in XinjiangThat leaves the United States as one of the few remaining operators of the plane. “Similar causes may have contributed to both events,” European regulators said, referring to the Lion Air crash in Indonesia that killed 189 people last year. Others took action on Wednesday. Lebanon and Kosovo barred the Boeing 737 Max 8 from their airspace, and Norwegian Air Shuttles said it would seek compensation from Boeing after the low-cost carrier grounded its fleet. The US-based Boeing has said it has no reason to pull the popular aircraft from the skies and does not intend to issue new recommendations about the aircraft to customers.last_img read more

Googles Android Market inapp billing ready for testing goes live next week

first_imgDuring a week where the Android Market lost some attention to the launch of Amazon’s Appstore, Google announced it will introduce an official in-app billing platform for its Android operating system next week. However, the billing platform is ready for testing now, in advance of the public launch.Google’s Eric Chu said on the Android Developer blog that the system will allow Android developers to sell items within their apps. Mobile users can then purchase the items using Google Checkout. The items include virtual goods in games, as well as digital content, including upgrades, subscriptions, chapters, and episodes.Developers are able to upload their apps for testing at this point, but they won’t be able to publish them until next week. Developers can start end-to-end testing using in-app billing, and can now create a catalog of in-app products. They can also set pricing, and then test buying the items using in-app purchases and test accounts. This may sound like a lot, but Google has published thorough guides that explain how to administer in-app billing, provide refunds, set up test accounts, and test the system.Google says the new service only works on Android version 1.6 and higher, and it requires developers to have a Google Checkout Merchant account. It’s also only available for apps published in the Android Market, so Android apps from the Amazon Appstore are out of luck. Google makes sure to stress that it can only be used to sell digital content, not physical goods.This service could be a good way for developers to make more money on their apps. Previously, the only way to make a profit was from selling the app itself. Developers could even offer the app for free or at a discounted rate now if the goods offered in the app are worthy of buying.Apps that are strictly on the iOS platform are probably overjoyed and gearing up to make the jump over to Android now that they’ll be able to sell items within the app. Social games use the model frequently, and often monetize through selling virtual goods. Many start as free apps, and then hook the player into buying additional levels.AllThingsD said successful companies like Disney-owned Tapulous have said Android’s lack of in-app payments is a reason why they haven’t launched on the platform. One of the apps expected to arrive next week is Tapulous’ popular Tap Tap Revenge 4, which has gained 10 million downloads from the Apple App Store, and will surely make a good profit from its sales in the Android Market.The exact date of the official release is still to be determined, but AllThingsD said it might be Tuesday.Read more at the Android Developers Bloglast_img read more

Tokyo Game Show to cut energy consumption 25 with LED lighting

first_imgThere are only a handful of big gaming conferences on the calendar each year, and next to E3 the Tokyo Game Show (TGS) has to be the stand out event. With both Sony and Nintendo being Japanese companies you usually get the odd surprise announcement and at the very least new footage and details of games that excited us at E3 earlier in the year.This year TGS is sure to be impressive as 146 companies have signed up to show off their latest games, hardware, and peripherals. But while there will be no shortage of stuff to look at for attendees, Japan is still suffering power issues following the devastating earthquake in March and subsequent Fukushima nuclear plant problems.AdChoices广告At a conference that has thousands in attendance and relies on electricity powering the TVs, consoles, and lights, you can’t really turn stuff off for a while. So the organizers of TGS have come up with another solution: drastically reduce the power required for the entire event.In fact, new technology seems to have come to the rescue of TGS. One of the biggest power drains at this and any public indoor event is providing enough light to the huge halls. Until now that has meant installing large conventional light bulbs that consume hundreds of watts of power each. Not this year, though. TGS is switching to LED lighting for the first time and with it intending to save at least 25% on previous year’s power requirements.Attendees may also have to suffer a little as TGS won’t be turning on the escalators that travel down. We’d also suggest turning the ones that go up off too so everyone gets a bit more exercise, but there’s probably a health and safety reason why that can’t happen.TGS runs between September 15-18 this year and is sure to include more details on the Wii U, PS Vita, and Microsoft’s plans for world console domination using Kinect.via Andriasanglast_img read more

Pebble smartwatch teardown reveals minimal innards that are nearly impossible to fix

first_imgPerhaps lost in the speculation regarding an Apple smartwatch, the smartwatch that first lit the internet on fire, the Pebble, has shipped to eager customers. The maniacal folks over at iFixit sought to satiate their tech bloodlust, and ripped the Pebble to shreds, exposing its insides for all the world to see. However, it turns out that there isn’t much going on under the hood.For those of you that somehow missed the Pebble as it took over the tech news cycle, it’s a watch, funded through Kickstarter, that interacts with your smartphone and displays your phone’s information on the watch. Considering you can just look at your smartphone to see what’s happening on there, the Pebble’s true goal is to use it when it would be inconvenient to pull your phone from your pocket or bag. When at the gym, for example, it’s annoying to have to reach for your phone when you want to change tracks on a song, or check Twitter in between sets. With the Pebble, you could leave your phone in your pocket, but still have access to core features. You’d think that would make the watch a complicated device, but when iFixit busted it open, they didn’t find much going on.The Pebble doesn’t have any visible outer screws, so they had to use the iOpener kit, which was originally used to pry open the iPad. Due to a significant amount of adhesive, the watch’s casing was difficult to open, and iFixit reports that it’s impossible to open the casing without breaking the screen.Once the watch was opened, the team found that three backlight LEDs is all that is needed to light the Pebble’s display. Rather than making a mess though and having to dive hands-deep into the watch’s guttyworks, the team found a simple assembly kept all neat and tidy inside a small plastic frame.A cable is home to the Pebble’s three LEDs, Bluetooth antenna, and the unit’s four buttons, so if one of those should malfunction, you can’t really get in there and replace the component without replacing the cable. However, as we saw above, you can’t really get into the Pebble without busting the screen anyway. This also means you can’t replace the battery without breaking the unit.That’s about all there is to the Pebble’s innards. It’s a tidy, compact design, and you can’t really open it unless you’re comfortable with a broken screen. To the average consumer, this wouldn’t be a problem until — most likely — the battery goes on the fritz. So, if you have or are planning on getting a Pebble, and are also fond of fixing your devices yourself, you should probably just keep good care of your watch instead.last_img read more

Eight killed and dozens injured after building housing illegal school collapses in

first_img https://jrnl.ie/4540825 Short URL 12 Comments Mar 13th 2019, 10:34 PM Eight killed and dozens injured after building housing ‘illegal school’ collapses in Nigeria Reports suggested that dozens of children were trapped inside the building. Image: Sunday Alamba/PA Images 8,360 Views RESCUERS HAVE RECOVERED the bodies of eight people and saved another 37 from the rubble of a collapsed four-storey building in Nigeria’s economic capital Lagos.Officials say that a number of children had been attending an “illegal school” inside the residential building when the structure collapsed on Wednesday.Earlier reports suggested that dozens of children were among those trapped inside the building, which collapsed mid-morning in an area near Itafaji market on Lagos Island.Parents, local residents and onlookers rushed to the area as police, firemen and medics staged a massive rescue operation.“Thirty-seven people were rescued alive and eight were recovered dead,” Ibrahim Farinloye of the National Emergency Management Agency said in a statement.A young man helping rescue efforts told AFP that “at least 10 children” were trapped inside but “thought to be alive”.An AFP reporter at the scene said at least eight people were pulled from the wreckage, including a small boy with blood on his face.School bags, toys and clothes could also be seen among the piles of rubble as a bulldozer tried to clear a path through some of the wreckage to help the rescue efforts.Hundreds of local residents attempted to help, passing water and helmets through to rescuers working to sift through the rubble.Many locals told AFP that the building, which was in an advanced state of disrepair, had been “earmarked” for demolition by authorities in Lagos state.“It is a residential building that was actually accommodating an illegal school,” said the state governor, confirming that most buildings in the area had been marked for demolition.“We get resistance from landlords but we must continue to save lives,” he said, pledging to step up measures against all structures that failed to meet the correct standards, saying they would be “quickly evacuated” and demolished.With reporting from – © AFP 2019center_img A child is rescued from the rubble of a collapsed building in Lagos, Nigeria Share7 Tweet Email By Stephen McDermott A child is rescued from the rubble of a collapsed building in Lagos, Nigeria Image: Sunday Alamba/PA Images Wednesday 13 Mar 2019, 10:33 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

That’s not easy.“When you are a manager, we sometimes speak too much about tactics. But the most difficult thing for a manager is to get the best from his best players and this manager is doing it. We have all seen it.”Herrera, 29, has equally benefited from Solskjaer’s appointment saying: “I have been told a lot of times ‘you should wear the armband in the future’ but I don’t need it.“I don’t go crazy with that. I think the best thing a team can have is different leaders. We need it from all the players.“Of course I am very thankful to the fans that feel I can be the captain or the leader of the club but I honestly don’t think that we should have only one. I feel I could be a leader in some moments but I don’t think I am the only leader at the club.”last_img read more

House Ways Means Chairman Unveiling Tax Reform Proposal

first_imgToday, House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) is releasing his tax reform proposal that will be the basis for the committee mark-up to begin as early as next week.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will propose to lower individual and corporate tax rates, streamline the tax code, and eliminate existing incentives to outsource jobs and revenue. While the legislative text was not yet available, preliminary information released by the committee indicates that the proposal intends to protect the ability of small businesses to write off interest on loans, allow businesses to immediately write off the full cost of equipment purchases, and doubles the estate tax exemption levels and fully repeals it after six years. It is not clear from the preliminary summaries how the proposal will treat other ASA priorities such as cash accounting, stepped-up basis, and like-kind exchanges.  The proposal is not expected to include an extension of the biodiesel tax credit, and that issue will require a strong push from the Senate to get into the discussion.  ASA will carefully review the House proposal when the legislative text is released and continue to communicate our priorities and the impacts that tax reform will have on farm families and agricultural operations.last_img read more

Opposition group holds rally against Beckhams MLS stadium

first_imgMIAMI (WSVN) – David Beckham’s quest to bring soccer to South Florida is facing a new hurdle.Residents and clergy in Overtown and Spring Garden held a rally, Wednesday, against Beckham’s proposed 25,000-seat soccer stadium, which would be built near Northwest Seventh Street and Seventh Avenue.The meeting was organized by the Overtown Spring Garden Community Coalition.The group argues the deal is light on community benefits and heavy on consequences.“We feel the stadium is completely inappropriate for that location. The noise, the traffic, 25,000 people swarming the site at one time is unmanageable, and it can’t be mitigated,” said Spring Garden resident Amanda Hand.“Well, what we hope to accomplish is to reverse this train that has so much momentum, which is the Major League Soccer stadium,” said St. John’s Baptist Church Bishop James Adams. “We feel that the site is inappropriate for the size that it is.”County commissioners voted in June to sell the three acre property along Northwest Seventh Avenue to Beckham’s group for an estimated $9 million.

UAF Looking To Expand HAARP Potential

first_imgThe University of Alaska Fairbanks has several prospective customers for the HAARP facility. UAF took ownership of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program facility in Gakona from the Air Force last summer, and there’s optimism that the station, once destined for scrap, has a future.Download AudioThe University of Alaska Fairbanks Geophysical Institute is charged with revitalizing HAARP as a tool for conducting experiments in the earth’s ionosphere, the electrically active region of the upper atmosphere. Thought the Air Force has completed its HAARP mission, Geophysical Institute Director Robert McCoy stresses that the 25-year-old facility on the Tok Off remains the best of 4 ionospheric research stations in the world.”It was started in ’89, but the final push was only a few years ago so it’s actually fairly new,” McCoy said. “And by a factor of ten its more powerful than the other one’s around the world. It’s far more flexible than the other ones, so we just gotta getthe word out.”HAARP’s high power radio transmitter and antennas are used to stimulate the ionosphere for communications research and other work. McCoy said that could include testing over-the-horizon radar.”What HAARP is is a big HAM radio.” McCoy said. “And over-the-horizon radios, that’s what they are. Basically big HF (High Frequency) transmitters. So HAARP is flexible enough where the beam can be steered and it can be used in that mode. So we don’t want to use it as an over-the-horizon radar, but we’re talking to NORAD and NORTHCOM about an over-the-horizon test bed. And the problem is up here in the Arctic, the Aurora causes such problems. But HAARP has enough power to overcome the aurora.”McCoy said that just one of the research possibilities federal agencies have expressed interest in conducting at the HAARP facility.“The Department of Energy, the Naval Research Lab, DARPA,” McCoy listed. “The National Science Foundation has also come to us and want to work with us.”McCoy said the university is still awaiting permits and acquisition of the land the facility sits on in anticipation of demonstrating HAARP’s potential for customers next February. He said UAF has focused on making the $300 million former Navy and Air Force research facility more efficient by combining operations with the university run Poker Flat Rocket Range outside Fairbanks.”We have a team at Poker costs way down,” McCoy said. “So now we have a smaller team at HAARP. We’ve combined them. As far as the science team, there used to be five people back in DC who would come out to run experiments. Our faculty on the seventh floor of the LV building of space physics, they can now run those experiments. So they’re doing research and they only have to be called on for a short time. So we’ve got those costs way down.”McCoy said with other measures, like better insulating HAARP buildings, UAF hopes to cut yearly operating costs from $7 million, down to $2 million. The University of Alaska has given the GI 3 years to repay a $2 million start up loan.last_img read more

Despite price drop electricity still expensive

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouDESPITE a 15 per cent decrease in the price of electricity from the second half of 2012 to the second half of 2013, the highest recorded drop in the European Union, Cyprus continues to offer the third most expensive household electricity in the EU, a Eurostat report said yesterday.According to the report, the EU average household electricity price rose by 2.8 per cent during this time, with the sharpest price hikes recorded in Estonia with 22 per cent, Greece with 20 per cent and Romania with 17 per cent. In contrast, the biggest decreases were recorded in Cyprus with 15 per cent, Hungary with 14 per cent and Spain with 9 per cent.But in spite of the percentage changes, in terms of actual prices Romania boasts the second cheapest household electricity at €12.8 per 100 kWh, behind Bulgaria with €8.8 and ahead of Hungary at €13.3. Conversely, Cyprus stayed near the top of the list of most expensive countries at €24.8, behind Denmark with €29.4 and Germany with €29.2. The average electricity price in the EU was €20.1.Another indicator recorded in the report, the purchasing power standard (PPS), an “artificial common reference currency that eliminates general price level differences between countries,” ranks Cyprus as the most expensive household electricity supplier with 28.2, ahead of Germany at 28.1 and Portugal at 26.2. In terms of PPS, the cheapest household electricity is available in Finland, which scored 12.8, Luxembourg at 13.7 and Latvia at 14.0.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
