Delphi Makes Personnel Moves in its Aftermarket Unit

first_imgTROY, MI — Delphi Corp. has announced several organizational changes for Delphi Product & Service Solutions, the company’s aftermarket and consumer products division. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement John Short, managing director of Delphi Diesel Aftermarket has announced he will retire on Dec. 31 after more than 32 years with Lucas and Delphi in the automotive aftermarket. Short first became involved in the aftermarket in 1972, when he joined Lucas Electrical. Following various assignments in systems and marketing, he transferred to Lucas World Service as business development manager responsible for the development of international marketing, sales and service strategies. He was subsequently named marketing director of Lucas Electrical Parts & Service in 1987, general manager, electronics & switchgear for Lucas Aftermarket in 1990 and general manager, electronics & fueling for Lucas Aftermarket in 1993. Since Lucas Diesel became part of Delphi in 2000, Short has been responsible for the company’s global diesel aftermarket operations. Michael Rayne, who currently serves as director of North American Diesel Aftermarket, will replace John Short. Rayne joined Lucas in 1969 as an electronics engineer. In 1978, he transferred to the U.S. as Lucas’ technical director, before being named general service manager in 1985 and general manager in 1997. At the time Lucas Diesel became part of Delphi, Rayne was named to his current position. He is presently responsible for a U.S. network of more than 400 Diesel Service Agents. In his new position, Rayne will relocate to the U.K. and will report directly to Francisco (Frank) Ordonez, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions and vice president, Delphi Corp. from a global standpoint and to Bernhard Mrosek, managing director, Delphi Product & Service Solutions Europe, Middle East and Africa, from a European coordination standpoint.

Without compliments

first_imgIt’s no secret that claimant and defendant personal injury lawyers do not exactly see eye to eye much of the time. Speaking at the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers’ very posh president’s lunch at the Armourers’ Hall in London last week, APIL president John McQuater said he hoped the two sides would be less combative in the future. However, he recalled one incident not so long ago which was not quite in line with the new touchy-feely approach. McQuater recounted: ‘After negotiating settlement in a particularly contentious case the damages cheque finally arrived. The paying party [presumably the insurer] clearly felt unable to bring themselves to write a letter, so the cheque was accompanied by just a compliments slip. On the slip, the words “with compliments” had been very carefully crossed out.’ Ever the cunning entrepreneur, Obiter sees a business opportunity here: selling ‘without any compliments whatsoever’ slips for insurance companies to use in their final correspondence with the claimant side. And if McQuater’s call for a more civilised approach makes him sound like a bit of a softie, don’t be fooled. A business colleague confided that in tense claimant strategy meetings, when lawyers were grimly assessing what action to take, McQuater was often known to break the tension by exclaiming ‘let’s boil their heads!’. We are told he did not mean it literally, but best to stay on the right side of him, just in case.last_img read more

Hootie & The Blowfish – Imperfect Circle album review

first_imgCredit: Snakefarm RecordsHootie & The Blowfish were a big deal back in the 90s. Their debut album Cracked Rear View, released in 1994, was certified 2x Diamond in the US (aka 21x Platinum) and their 1996 follow-up Fairweather Johnson hit 3x Platinum. The band even made some headway in the UK with the albums selling Gold and Silver respectively. Frontman Darius Rucker released a solo album in 2002 but it didn’t really catch on and the band reunited for two more studio albums. After that though, Darius made a switch to Country music and he’s had huge success in that genre. 14 years since their last album, Hootie & The Blowfish are back with new album Imperfect Circle.For Imperfect Circle Hootie & The Blowfish have married together their world, rootsy rock, by enlisting producer Jeff Trot with Darius’ move to Country by enlisting producer Frank Rogers. The end result is a project that straddles both the band’s signature sound and Darius’ solo work. That inevitably leaves the album hanging in a Country/Rock zone and to be honest you could call it either. I was always a Hootie fan but oddly have never particularly cared for Darius’ work as a solo artist so it’s with some surprise that I really like this record.The album starts off strong with New Year’s Day, a thumping beat-driven track co-written by Eric Paslay, who features throughout the record. It’s like the band has picked up from where they left off and there’s something about hearing them back together that’s actually a little thrilling. I’d never deny that Darius is a great vocalist but when he’s back with the band, there’s something much more interesting to sink your teeth (and ears) into. The first highlight on the album comes on Wildfire Love, a song co-written by Country singer Joel Crouse and the omnipresent Ed Sheeran. It features Lucie Silvas on harmony vocals and it could well be the best track here. The mix of genres works well and when Silvas’ vocals kick in, the song kicks things up a notch.Elsewhere on the record Chris Stapleton lends a hand on the catchy Hold On, Sheryl Crow provides backing vocals on the reggae-lite Turn It Up (and she appears on two other tracks as well), and the groove-laden Lonely on a Saturday Night finds the band sounding a little looser. The band shines on the three tracks they wrote without any outside influence. The storming rock-feel of Half a Day Ahead makes for a memorable listen, the tropical We Are One takes you back to sunnier times, and album closer Change allows Darius’ voice to shine with more stripped-down production.There are a couple of songs on the record that breeze by with little impact. Why is perfectly serviceable but you’ll struggle to bring it to mind after it finishes and the same is true for the mid-tempo Everybody But You. At 13 tracks long, the album could have perhaps benefitted from trimming those two.Imperfect Circle should keep Hootie fans happy and it’ll likely bring some of Darius’ audience over to the band’s fanbase. It’s an interesting fusion of the two different worlds that Darius has straddled over the years and for the most part its successful. It does make you wonder if Darius might bring Hootie & The Blowfish to C2C when he plays his headline set in March.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Track list: 1.

IDB approves US$130m for Ja’s structural economic programme

first_imgBusinessInternationalNewsPrintRegional IDB approves US$130m for Ja’s structural economic programme by: Caribbean Media Corporation – August 7, 2015 34 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! Tweet WASHINGTON, United States (CMC) – The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Thursday said it had approved a US$130-million loan for Jamaica so as to strengthen its structural programme for economic growth.It said that this is the second operation of a policy-based loan series, providing budget support for the Government’s fiscal policy reform. The first operation was approved in Februray last year.The Jamaica Government has been improving its public finances in recent years in order to set the stage for stronger economic growth. Under its economic reform programme, Jamaica approved key tax reforms that aim at broadening the tax base while correcting a distortionary tax system.Among other measures, the programme targets strengthening of Jamaica’s pension system, and most specifically, efforts to ensure that the pension fund is financially sustainable. This includes reforming the National Insurance Scheme (NIS). In addition, a fiscal rule has been established. These reforms will contribute to maintaining and enhancing Jamaica’s sound fiscal programme.“The IDB has been a consistent partner in this programme of economic reform on which we have embarked and we have made considerable progress because of the support received by the IDB. We don’t always agree on everything, but when we don’t, we can discuss and emerge with an even stronger bond of collaboration and are better off for having these discussions.“This approval, on the eve of Jamaica’s celebration of the 53rd anniversary of Independence, is appropriately timed as we strive to ensure the unfurling of all the opportunities that Independence represents. Our sincere thanks to the IDB for a partnership that is helping us to deliver on the legitimate expectations of the people in Jamaica for a better life,” said Finance and Planning Minister Dr Peter Phillips.The Vice President for Countries at the IDB, Alexandre Meira da Rosa, said the agreement had the full support of everyone on the IDB Board.“This is a credit and tribute to the efforts of Jamaica to carry out the reforms necessary to achieve economic and social growth. We believe that Jamaica is about to turn the corner and harvest the results of its efforts.“This agreement is the fulfillment of a commitment that IDB President Moreno and I made to Minister Phillips last year, to walk hand-in-hand with Jamaica on the reform journey. We celebrate the fulfillment of that promise and reaffirm the full commitment of the IDB to Jamaica.”The IDB loan has a 20-year maturity, a 5.5-year grace period and an interest rate based on LIBOR, which is currently about 1.2 per cent.last_img read more

Boards oppose NMPF’s dairy policy package

first_imgThe leaders of the International Dairy Foods Association’s (IDFA) three constituent organizations voted to support IDFA’s dairy policy reform recommendations and to oppose the National Milk Producers Federation’s dairy policy package.The directors of the Milk Industry Foundation, the National Cheese Institute and the International Ice Cream Association met this weekend to review current policy reform proposals and approved the IDFA’s policy recommendations that would reform the Federal Milk Marketing Orders and provide a better safety net for dairy farmers.advertisementadvertisement “IDFA’s plan offers an alternative path forward that would not limit milk supply through a new mandatory government program and will give dairy farmers the tools they need to manage volatility,” said Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO. “We support policy initiatives—many of which are included in the Dairy Industry Advisory Committee recommendations—that will help our industry grow, not only through increased consumption here in the U.S., but by taking advantage of new and growing export opportunities.”IDFA’s policy recommendations will replace existing safety net programs with better risk management tools for producers. IDFA proposals will also reform the Federal Milk Marketing Order system from a complex, outdated program to a system that is simpler and encourages growth within the industry.”Our members believe that it is time to decrease regulations in a highly regulated industry and the National Milk policy package does just the opposite,” said Tipton.Recommendations include:Replacing the outdated and ineffective Dairy Product Price Support Program (DPPSP) and Dairy Export Incentive Program (DEIP) with better risk management tools for producersStrengthening dairy risk management tools, including forward contracting, the Livestock Gross Margin-Dairy program, catastrophic margin insurance for all dairy farmers and tax-deferred farm savings accountsSimplifying the Federal Milk Marketing Orders program PD—From IDFA news releaseadvertisementlast_img read more

How Real is the Indians Pursuit of Orioles Power Hitter Manny Machado?

first_img Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events. He has been a part of the Cleveland Indians coverage since the opening of Jacobs/Progressive Field in 1994, and spent two and a half years covering the team for 92.3 The Fan, and covers them daily for Associated Press Radio. You can follow Matt on Twitter HERE. Another report, this time from Dayn Perry from CBS Sports says that there’s as many as eight teams that might look to make an offer for Machado, but while the Indians are one of those teams, the front runners according to CBS Sports HQ MLB analyst Jim Bowden are the Philadelphia Phillies and St.Louis Cardinals. So what would the Indians have to give up for Machado, and where would they plug him in? It would likely take a huge deal that would not only involve Major League talent, but a prospect or two at the same time.Think of names like Shane Beiber, Adam Plutko, Mike Clevinger, Bradley Zimmer, and young minor league talent like Francisco Mejia and Triston McKenzie to be names bantered about if the Indians are to try and make such a mega deal.One issue with Machado is that he doesn’t fit the long term game plan of the Indians, as he’ll be a free agent at the end of the season, and as always big markets like New York with the Yankees and Boston will be in the mix for his services, ready to throw plenty of money at him.If the Tribe somehow can land Machado, it’ll spell the end likely for Jason Kipnis, as the Indians would almost for sure move Jose Ramirez to second, keeping Francisco Lindor at short and putting Machado at third, a position he played 156 times in 2017.It will be a crazy month for sure leading to the trade deadline, and there will be plenty of calls made to try and put the Indians into an even better position come the 2018 postseason. Related TopicsIndiansManny MachadoOrioles Matt Loede Depending on who are listening to today, there’s still a rumbling that the Indians are still very much interested in finding a way to add Orioles shortstop and slugger Manny Machado to their roster through a deal.Machado has been rumored to be the apple of the Indians eye for sometime, as the reported talks of the Indians wanting Machado started way back in January, and there was even a report two weeks back that the Tribe was still in the top four of teams he might end up going to.The Orioles are awful this season at 24-60, and there’s no doubt more than ever they will be a seller at the trade deadline, if not before.Last season Machado hit 33 homers with 95 runs batted in and hit .259 for the Orioles, and through 83 games this year is hitting .311 with 21 homers and 59 runs batted in.Jon Morosi of MLB Network tweeted out today that it looks like both the Arizona Diamondbacks and Indians are two teams that will fight to get Machado. last_img read more
