Boeing to restart Washington state commercial plane manufacturing

Boeing to restart Washington state commercial plane manufacturing

first_imgThe manufacturer’s South Carolina plant, which produces the 787 Dreamliner, remains closed.”The health and safety of our employees, their families and communities is our shared priority,” said Stan Deal, chief of Boeing’s commercial plane division.”This phased approach ensures we have a reliable supply base, our personal protective equipment is readily available and we have all of the necessary safety measures in place to resume essential work for our customers.”The Washington complex will operate under modified manufacturing procedures to enhance safety, including staggered shift times; a requirement for face coverings and extra hand-washing equipment. In addition, Boeing will implement employee wellness checks at the start of every shift, including voluntary temperature screenings at many locales; and contact tracing when an employee tests positive for the virus.The announcement lifted shares in the aerospace giant in after-hours trading by 7.6 percent to US$144.50. Boeing had suffered an eight percent drop during Thursday’s session, joining other airlines that suffered another drubbing on the bleak outlook for commercial travel.In a note to employees, Boeing Chief Executive David Calhoun praised a US Treasury agreement announced earlier this week to support commercial airlines as “vital to maintaining the aviation pillar of the US economy, even if full recovery will take years, not months.”Talks between Boeing and US Treasury officials are expected later this month on terms of potential federal support for the company. US emergency aid legislation last month included about $17 billion in funds aimed at Boeing.”Our team continues to focus on the best ways to keep liquidity flowing through our business and to our supply chain until our customers are buying airplanes again,” Calhoun said. “We continue to believe strongly in the future of aviation and of Boeing as the industry leader and are willing to borrow against that future.”Topics : Boeing workers return to their jobs starting next week to resume building commercial planes in Washington state for the first time since the plant was shuttered due to the coronavirus, the company said Thursday.Boeing said it plans a “phased” ramp-up at its facilities in Everett Washington, which was closed in late March due to COVID-19 outbreakThe facility in the Puget Sound-region builds several commercial aircraft models including the 777 and the 737, and Boeing said about 27,000 workers will return to the operation. last_img read more

Old Salisbury home given a new life

Old Salisbury home given a new life

first_imgThe house at 285 Lillian Ave, Salisbury, is for sale.EMMA Vearing and Brock Turton were trying to break into the property market when they bought an old cottage at Salisbury.The paint was peeling, but Ms Vearing could see past the tired facade of the highset house at 285 Lillian Ave. The bathroom is fresh and modern.Ms Vearing said the area was community-orientated, and there were a number of tightly held houses on Lillian Ave.“Our neighbours across the road have been there for 50 years. Everyone goes out of their way to say hello and we all give each other Christmas presents.” The house is fresh, but still retains character elements.“The house looked like it was falling down but we could see the potential,” Ms Vearing said.“There is a trend in the area of houses being knocked down, but we made a point of wanting to restore it.” The bedroom with stained glass windows is Ms Vearing’s favourite.Besides the potential of the house, there was one other aspect that drew Ms Vearing to the house.“Walking out into the backyard and seeing the big mango tree helped sell us the house,” she said.“It alternates years, but right now it has got fruit.” The turquoise glass is original and has been restored.That restored glass adds to what is now Ms Vearing’s favourite room in the house.“My favourite room would probably be that front bedroom with the leadlight windows.“It’s got a beautiful feel and I’ve always had a good night sleep in that room.” The kitchen is modern, but fits the look of the house.Restoration, not modernisation, was the focus of the couple’s project.“We had all the leadlight windows professionally restored, and when they came out they said that the turquoise glass in our window, and the green and yellow glass was pre-1900s.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus14 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market14 hours ago“When we were doing up the house, it cost a fortune to have all of those things restored, but we wanted to keep all of that character for someone else to love.” The back deck is a great place to entertain.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD576p576p432p432p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

De’Ron Davis

De’Ron Davis

first_imgDe’Ron Davis is a 6’10” center for Indiana University.  When Davis came to Indiana, he had a lot of problems and injuries.  This made his first year with IU not only frustrating but it left fans wondering whether he would ever be able to help the Hoosiers win.  Colorado’s high school Mr. Basketball was just another big man on the court.  His high school coach noticed that when he lost weight and got faster he also gained a lot more confidence.  The confidence helped him become a dominating force inside.If his early season play continues to improve, IU may have found a leader for a team that has lacked someone since Yogi Ferrell graduated.  For all of you IU fans in the area, things are improving!  After 2 early season loses, IU and Archie Miller appear to be getting on the right track.  They will need to be,because the Big Ten is loaded again this year!last_img read more

‘Octoberfest’ draws hundreds to Batesville, includes preview of Walnut Street improvement project

‘Octoberfest’ draws hundreds to Batesville, includes preview of Walnut Street improvement project

first_imgBatesville, In. — On Friday, September 14, The Sherman hosted the second annual Oktoberfest in downtown Batesville.  About 1200 people participated in the celebration at The Sherman Biergarten, which was expanded to include the adjacent city blocks. German dresses (drindls) of all colors and rugged lederhosen were the dominate attire seen on the streets this evening.“We had several objectives for this Oktoberfest,” commented owner, Georg Heringer. “Along with creating an exciting community event where neighbor meets neighbor, old friends meet again and new friends are made, we wanted to bring a unique entertainment experience to Batesville by hosting musicians from the region of Bavaria, which is, of course, where Oktoberfest was started in 1810.”The entertainment program began at 6 pm with 16 musicians direct from Germany. Founded in 1935, the Heuboden Musikanten (Hayloft Musicians) can now add The Sherman to their long list of audiences, which includes the Pope at the Vatican in 2007.Shortly after 9 pm, the Ripley County mobile stage positioned in the intersection directly in front of the Biergarten was suddenly illuminated as rock ban FIVE Lights filled the streets of downtown Batesville with three hours of dance-rock fun.German and domestic beer flowed steadily all evening from beer trucks and “bottle beer stations” found on both streets as well as inside the Biergarten at the self-serve window. Off the grill burgers, brats, chicken sandwiches and giant pretzels etc. were available from two street locations and one inside the Biergarten.Around this back drop down Walnut Street, Kid’s Discovery Factory hosted a variety of activities for kids of all ages including giant chalk drawings and an oversized kaleidoscope.Batesville Main Street and the Rural Alliance for the Arts (future BAAC) were present to pre-enact a Walnut Street improvement project and share the news of a National Endowment for the Arts, Our Town Grant award.  The grant funds will facilitate Land Use Planning of the downtown Batesville area, Preliminary Design of a Living Street Concept for the Walnut Street corridor and a Public Art Installation.   A section of Walnut street was transformed with trees, a patch of grass and string lights to show how a pedestrian-friendly street would have a dual role of being both a street and at times a beautiful pedestrian area.Anne Raver, BAAC Community Liaison and Batesville Main Street Board member explained the grant, early drawings and talked about the benefits. She added, “all are welcome to join BAAC and the Batesville Main Street in continuing the momentum created by the efforts of The Sherman and several other downtown initiatives to continue to restore downtown Batesville  with place-making  and revitalization initiatives. Contact us to be a part of the village.”At 6:30 nearly 100 registered runners participated in a 5K run organized by the “What the Hill” running club, The Sherman and several volunteers. The first annual OktoBEERfest, a special event at the Oktoberfest, featured a competitive run to raise funds for the Batesville-based Matthew 19:26 Mission Team who will be helping an orphanage in Kenya with building projects this fall. “We were fortunate to raise several thousand dollars to support their work thanks to amazing sponsors and volunteers,” noted Curtis Gillman.The running tour through downtown Batesville started and ended at The Sherman. All runners were rewarded with t-shirts, a special color-changing mug and a free beer. The “What the Hill” running club of Batesville and The Sherman were one of 25 sponsors supporting the Mission Team’s 2018 program.The Sherman would like to thank several music sponsors; 1) The Friendship State Bank, The Stone Studio, Gehring, Inc., Leising Excavating & Mulch, Budweiser, Fitzpatrick Construction, Gillman Home Center and Pro-Prints, 2) the extra hands who worked the event including the Batesville Youth Baseball/Softball Club, the Batesville High School Tennis Team, and Batesville Main Street and 3) Mayor Mike Bettice and the City of Batesville for their support in closing the streets and donating the tables and chairs among other supporting activities through the course of the months leading up to the event.“Most importantly, the guests who came out to celebrate made it a special event,” added Heringer. “Many walked from neighboring streets, others came from Greensburg, Cincinnati or further. Where ever they came from we are grateful for the visit and look forward to seeing you back at The Sherman soon,” said Heringer.last_img read more

Juventus set to announce signing of Barcelona forward

Juventus set to announce signing of Barcelona forward

first_img Despite hitting 21 goals in an injury-hit season, Suarez’s physical levels have dropped in recent seasons since his prime and his future has come under increasing scrutiny in recent times. Luis Suarez says Barcelona’s board must match the ambitions of strike partner Lionel Messi. Read Also: No more Messi chase for now, says Inter vice-president Barcelona transfer news has been defined by their interest in Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, who has been touted to be the long-term replacement for the Uruguayan at the Camp Nou. Suarez has netted 197 goals across 283 appearances for Barcelona since joining the club from Liverpool in the summer of 2014 but last week reports claimed he had no intention of leaving the club despite interest from elsewhere. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Juventus are completing the final details on signing Barcelona striker Luis Suarez with an official announcement expected soon. The details are outlined by Diario Sport, the deal is likely going to be similar to the one that took Ivan Rakitic to Sevilla – a small upfront fee with several minimal performance-related add-ons. Relations between the Italian champions and Barca are good after the clubs concluded a swap deal between midfielders Arthur Melo and Miralem Pjanic earlier this summer, and this will be another key bit of business between the two. Last week, reports claimed that the deal was being held up by a passport issue with Suarez taking up a non-EU spot in Barcelona’s squad due to Spain’s rules on his marriage to an Italian citizen, but Italy’s regulations means he must first undergo a small test. Suarez will still need to successfully complete his application form for an Italian passport but this will have no bearing on the deal going through. A separate report claimed Juve were willing to match Suarez’s current wage packet of €10m per annum as he looks set to leave the Blaugrana.Advertisement Loading… center_img Promoted ContentThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

House supports Ziemke’s bill expanding addiction, mental health resources for Hoosiers

House supports Ziemke’s bill expanding addiction, mental health resources for Hoosiers

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — The House of Representatives Tuesday supported State Rep. Cindy Ziemke’s (R-Batesville) legislation allowing more qualified health professionals to treat services to Hoosiers struggling with addiction or mental health.Currently, licensed social workers, mental health counselors, clinical addiction counselors and marriage and family therapists have the ability to provide outpatient treatment, but a doctor must provide additional oversight. These clinical social workers have the skills necessary to administer these programs without that oversight.“Allowing these clinical social workers to independently administer outpatient treatment to Hoosiers is imperative to bolstering our health workforce and fighting the opioid epidemic,” Ziemke said. “Current barriers cause our clinical social workers to find work in other states where they can work freely. We need to provide these professionals the flexibility to help those struggling with addiction or mental health.”Ziemke said these licensed social workers, mental health counselors, clinical addiction counselors, and marriage and family therapists would need to possess a master’s degree in order to offer outpatient treatment to patients.House Bill 1175 now moves to the Senate for consideration.

Fergie ponders retirement – reports

Fergie ponders retirement – reports

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson is reportedly considering his position as manager of Manchester United. Press Association Only this past weekend, writing in his programme notes to preview Sunday’s Barclays Premier League defeat by Chelsea, Ferguson insisted he was intent on carrying on indefinitely. In the wake of securing his 13th league title – and 20th overall for the club – he said: “This team of champions is not going away – we are here for the long ride. We will get better and if we apply ourselves in our normal fashion I see our 20th league title as nothing but the start of another decade of success. “Whether I will be here to oversee another decade of success remains to be seen, but I certainly don’t have any plans at the moment to walk away from what I believe will be something special and worth being around to see.” There have nevertheless been signs in recent times to suggest Ferguson’s days at the United helm might be numbered. Last week, United privately confirmed Ferguson had been booked in for hip surgery in August, after the club’s pre-season tour, which involves trips to Thailand, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. The timing of the operation appeared strange, especially as it is believed he could have undergone the procedure immediately following the end of this season. Then on Monday, bookmakers slashed the odds on David Moyes replacing Ferguson amid reports the Everton manager would spend a season as his fellow Scot’s assistant. None of these stories have triggered any official comment from the club, who, as a partially floated company, are bound by US Stock Exchange rules and will surely be required to confirm the position in due course given Ferguson’s significance. If Ferguson does leave, he would do so as Britain’s most successful manager, having claimed his 49th piece of silverware with this season’s title win. center_img A number of Wednesday’s national newspapers claim the 71-year-old is ready to stand down, bringing an end to his hugely successful 26-and-a-half years at the helm. The club were not available for comment when contacted by Press Association Sport on Tuesday night. last_img read more
