Tentative deal reached with unionized shipbuilders working on navy vessels

first_imgHALIFAX – The union at the Halifax shipyard building the next generation of Royal Canadian Navy vessels says it has a tentative agreement with Irving Shipbuilding.Both the union and the company said no details will be released until Halifax Shipyard employees have a chance to view it and vote on it.Unifor gave 48-hour strike notice last week, but talks resumed before a Saturday deadline for the walkout.Last week, the union said a strong majority of 850 members had rejected an earlier tentative contract.Unifor’s lead negotiator had said tensions were high, and the issues were not just about economics, but rather were tied to disagreements over the number of discipline cases at the shipyard and the use of foreign workers.The company confirmed a new tentative agreement has been reached, but declined further comment.The shipyard has said it is planning to build up to six Arctic and offshore patrol ships and 15 Canadian surface combatants over the next 25 years, referring to the projects as “the backbone of the Royal Canadian Navy.”last_img read more

Football Gene Smith Urban Meyer back Ryan Day as acting head coach

Ohio State said offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day was named the acting head coach for the duration of the investigation. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignAs the Board of Trustees decided on the future of head coach Urban Meyer at the Longaberger Alumni Center on Wednesday, the Ohio State football team practiced. The sound of strength coach Mickey Marotti’s voice echoed across Olentangy River Road, encouraging individual players as the team warmed up at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center during its 4 p.m. practice prior to the season opener against Oregon State on Sept. 1. As day turned to night and the voice of Marotti faded, the deliberation ended, deciding Meyer would be suspended without pay through Sept. 2 and for the games on Sept. 1, 8 and 15. In Meyer’s absence, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Ryan Day will continue as the acting head coach, a role he has held since Aug. 1 when Meyer was placed on paid administrative leave when the Board of Trustees began its investigation into his knowledge of domestic violence allegations made against former assistant coach Zach Smith. In the opening statement of his press conference, Athletic Director Gene Smith thanked Day for taking on the role of acting head coach, calling him and the assistant coaches strong leaders throughout the investigation. The main message from Gene Smith ahead of his suspension was simple: provide the necessary support for Day through the first three games of the 2018 season. “Our top priority over the next few days is to make sure that we do everything that we can to reaffirm Coach Day’s commitment to being our interim coach during this timeframe,” Gene Smith said. “I will also working to ensure our student-athletes have every resource they need to maintain their focus on academics and competition.”Even though Meyer will not be on the sideline for the first three games of the season, the Ohio State head coach will be able to coach during the weeks leading up to games after Sept. 2. However, for a coach that said he had “worked diligently to build a program that would make the great state of Ohio and Ohio State very proud,” Meyer said his absence from the program has been extremely difficult. “It’s been very tough, one of the toughest things I’ve experienced,” Meyer said. “I have very good players and a very good staff. My message when i get to speak to the team is that I love them dearly, I appreciate all they’ve done for this incredible university.”While he is away from the team for the first three weeks of the season, Meyer was very complimentary towards his current coaching staff, including two former head coaches in defensive coordinator Greg Schiano and offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. “It’s also one of the best coaching staffs I’ve had,” Meyer said. “I look forward to watching them continue to grow and getting updates as we move forward.”When it is all said and done, the Board of Trustees decided, with the decision to reinstate the head coach after a three-game suspension, that Ohio State was still Meyer’s team. This is the mindset Meyer looks to take as his return to the Buckeyes comes closer. “I’ve been a Buckeye my entire life,” Meyer said. “I appreciate the opportunity to learn from the mistake and work as hard as I ever have to make our strong program even stronger.” read more

Asus 1000HE Netbook Claims 95 Hour Battery Life

first_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — Asus has just introduced an Eee PC netbook that uses the Intel Atom N280, which has slightly better performance than the previous N270 chip. The N280 runs at 1.67GHz, up from the N270’s 1.6GHz, and the machine’s 1GB memory will be clocked at 667MHz rather than 533MHz. The longer battery life is contributed to the N280 chip that consumes a maximum of 2.5 watts, along with an LED backlit LCD screen. Asus’ Super Hybrid Engine allows people to control the CPU to lower performance to conserve power. In order to achieve 9.5 hours of battery life, the user would most likely have to lower CPU performance, dim the screen, and turn off the system’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and camera. Since this is not a realistic approach in using a netbook you can expect less than 9.5 hours of battery life. Aside from the Atom N280 processor other basic features include 802.11n WiFi that boost speed 6 times greater than the 802.11g, 10-inch screen with 1024 x 600 resolution, 3 USB ports, SDHC card slot, VGA port, 10/100Mb/s Ethernet, and 160GB hard drive. The ASUS Eee PC 1000HE is available immediately for pre-order through the official ASUS Eee PC Group on Facebook. The MSRP is $399.99 but Asus is applying a $25 instant discount to all the pre-orders. The pre-order page lists places where you can purchase the 1000HE like Amazon, Buy.com, Newegg and a few others but none of the stores, except Amazon, actually list the computer yet. At the time of this writing you can also pre order it from Amazon for $374.00.© 2009 PhysOrg.com Citation: Asus 1000HE Netbook Claims 9.5 Hour Battery Life (2009, February 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-02-asus-1000he-netbook-hour-battery.html This document is subject to copyright.
