Following the temporary closure last week temperatures have remained high and no new snow have forced this closure. Monday February 16th will be our last day of operation. We will make every effort to re-open if conditions permit.The mountain’s snowpack, especially at lower elevations, is too lean to continue with alpine operations. The contrast in snowfall from an average full season Winter snowfall is 910cm. Currently to date for the 14/15 season we have received 264cm.“The resort staff have all been working hard, moving lots of snow to rebuild the lower mountain.” says Brad Brush, General Manager. “Unfortunately the weather has been against us, delivering warm, wet conditions that has eroded our snow base in these areas”.This season has been extremely challenging and Mother Nature has unfortunately not delivered this season. Our customers, the community and our staff have been very patient this Winter Season. Please keep snow dancing!” read more

Immelt shook up GEs business model but not its stock price

This Wednesday, May 10, 2017, photo, shows the NBC logo at their television studios at Rockefeller Center in New York. General Electric announced Monday, June 12, 2017, that Jeff Immelt is stepping down after 16 years as CEO of the iconic conglomerate. Immelt took the helm in 2001 from legendary CEO Jack Welsh. After the financial crisis, he sharply pared down the financial services business that Welsh had built up and went on a spending spree to acquire businesses in the power and oil and gas sectors. During his tenure Immelt also disposed of GE’s appliance unit and the NBC television business. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer) NEW YORK, N.Y. – General Electric’s Jeff Immelt is stepping down after 16 years as CEO of the iconic conglomerate, having succeeded in repositioning the company as a producer of large industrial products but failing to fully revive its lagging stock price.John Flannery, president and CEO of the GE’s health care unit, will take over as CEO in August, the company said Monday.Immelt took the helm in 2001 from legendary CEO Jack Welsh. After the financial crisis, he sharply pared down the financial services business that Welsh had built up and went on a spending spree to acquire businesses in the power and oil and gas sectors. During his tenure Immelt also disposed of GE’s appliance unit and the NBC television business.The 61-year-old Immelt will stay on as chairman until his retirement from the position at the end of the year, with the 55-year-old Flannery stepping into the role after that.GE traces its roots to 1878, when inventor Thomas Edison formed the Edison Electric Light Co. in New York City after having opened his famous laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey. The next year, Edison invented the first successful incandescent electric lamp.Recent reports say GE is considering selling the lighting business, which could fetch about $500 million.While GE credits Immelt with improving its financial performance and its focus, GE’s stock price has trailed the market with him as CEO.The stock was worth a bit less than $40 on Immelt’s first day in 2001, with the U.S. in the middle of a recession. The stock briefly rose above $40 in 2007, just ahead of the economic crisis. It sank as low as $6.66 in March 2009 in the depth of the crisis, and closed at $27.94 a share Friday.Analyst Robert McCarthy at Stifel Nicolaus wrote in a note to clients that the timing of the change in leadership was “unsurprising since the serial underperformance of the stock.” GE said the moves were part of its succession plan.An investor who bought $1,000 in GE stock when Immelt took over would have $1,243 today, including dividends. The same amount invested in the S&P 500 index would be worth $3,206 today.GE’s stock rose 4.1 per cent to $29.10 in afternoon trading Monday.Immelt spent the second half of his time as CEO returning the company to its less-risky industrial roots. In 2007, GE’s finance arm accounted for about 55 per cent of its profits, but its large exposure to commercial real estate left it vulnerable during the financial crisis.Immelt instead focused on products like energy-generating windmills, gas turbines for power plants, online medical records and energy saving equipment for electrical grids as a source of new profits.GE made big acquisitions under Immelt to bring new business and technologies to GE. The company acquired the power business of France’s Alstom three years ago. GE on Monday received U.S. antitrust approval to combine its oil and gas operations with Baker Hughes, potentially creating an oil services powerhouse with more than $32 billion in revenue. The approval is conditioned on GE selling its Water and Process Technologies business.GE also remains one of the world’s biggest producers of jet engines.Flannery is a longtime General Electric executive, starting his career at GE Capital in 1987. He became president and CEO of the company’s equity unit in 2002 and eventually joined the health care division in 2014, focusing on advanced technologies.In addition, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Bornstein was named vice chair and Kieran Murphy was named president and CEO of GE Healthcare to succeed Flannery. by The Associated Press Posted Jun 12, 2017 9:01 am MDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2017 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Immelt shook up GE’s business model, but not its stock price read more

Tadcaster reconnected as bridge severely damaged by 2015 floods reopens

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The loss of the bridge, which had already been closed due to safety concerns, left the North Yorkshire town divided, with residents and visitors having to negotiate a 10-mile (16km) detour to get from one side of the river to the other.The division has strained businesses in the town and North Yorkshire County Council said contractors have worked around the clock to complete a job that should have taken two years in just over 12 months.”There is great anticipation in the town,” said Don Mackenzie, North Yorkshire County Council’s executive member for highways. Tadcaster Bridge is due to reopen more than a year after its partial collapse came to symbolise the destruction of the 2015 Christmas floods.The 18th century Grade II listed structure crumbled on December 29 2015 as the River Wharfe rose to historic levels.Its collapse came as flooding hit large parts of northern England, leaving many communities – including homes in Tadcaster – under several feet of water. The bridge over the River Wharfe on Commercial Street in Tadcaster “Its community has been literally cut in two for a year by the bridge’s collapse and people have been eagerly looking forward to the time when they will be reconnected. We thank them for the patience and fortitude they have shown throughout the year.”I am very proud of the enormous effort made by our contractors, Balfour Beatty, and our bridges team to complete a very challenging project of this kind in little more than half the time it would normally take.”The reconstruction, which has included a widening of the structure, has been funded with £3 million from the Government and £1.4 million from the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership. Work continues on the historic bridge in Tadcaster which crumbled into the River Wharfe during floods at Christmas 2015 Friday’s reopening will be marked by a parade led by pupils from the town’s three primary schools.The reconstruction of the bridge will be further celebrated in April when Tadcaster hosts the start of Day 2 of the Tour de Yorkshire bike race.The bridge collapsed four days after it was closed on Christmas Day 2015 due to safety concerns.North Yorkshire County Council said more than 650 tonnes of water every second was hitting the bridge at its peak – the highest flow rate recorded in 30 years.Government minister Greg Clarke walked across the bridge, inspecting the situation, hours before its dramatic collapse.

Bath university spent £2000 hiring Red Devils skydiver to deliver token peppercorn rent

first_imgThe Red Devils Parachute Regiment’s free fall team were given the task of carrying the peppercorn and giant 50th anniversary flag safely to earth from 2,000ft.Now local councillors are calling for the university to contribute more to council coffers after the generous pay of its vice-chancellor became public. Will Sandry, the Liberal Democrat councillor for Oldfield on Bath and North East Somerset Council, said the wealthy institution is “having its cake and eating it”. The parachute delivery was part of a display costing more than £2,000 This year the rent was delivered by a Red Devils skydiver as part of an aerial display costing £2,122 Vice-chancellor of Bath University Dame Glynis BreakwellCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA Wire Vice-chancellor of Bath University Dame Glynis Breakwell A university with the highest paid vice-chancellor in the UK spent £2,000 on an elaborate parachute ceremony to deliver its peppercorn rent.The University of Bath has already been widely criticised for the £450,000 salary paid to its vice-chancellor Dame Glynis Breakwell.But institution chiefs have come in for renewed ire after emerged they paid £2,122 to hire a Red Devils skydiver as part of an aerial display.The university only pays a single piece of peppercorn to the local council as ground rent for the Claverton Down campus each year as part of an agreement dating back to 1964.Its agreement is due to continue until the 999-year lease runs out 953 years’ time.The peppercorn is usually handed to the authority in a silver box – but this year was handed over in a parachute display.The event was one of the highlights of the University of Bath’s 50th anniversary festival on May 6, which cost a total of £62,500. He said: “They operate as a business, get a multi-million pound government grant and have all the benefits of being a charity. This means they receive a large discount on business rates.”Bob Goodman, the Conservative councillor for Combe Down, called for a review of the peppercorn arrangement.He spoke out amid claims the university may have breached planning regulations by converting on-campus student flats into offices. This year the rent was delivered by a Red Devils skydiver as part of an aerial display costing £2,122 The Cabinet Member for Development and Neighbourhoods expressed his “deep disappointment” on learning that perhaps many hundreds of bed spaces had disappeared from Claverton Down.In an open letter, he said: “The university, after all, ‘rent’ the campus area on a ‘peppercorn’ rent, something I personally believe needs to be revisited in the difficult financial situation we find ourselves in.”Every time we lose a family house to a student HMO or an office building converted to student accommodation, the council lose significant revenue in council tax and business rates – costing many millions of pounds.”The first payment in 1971 included six extra peppercorns as back rent since the 200-acre site was handed over. It is understood the university would have to agree to any change in the terms of the 999-lease contract. The parachute delivery was part of a display costing more than £2,000 The university has spent more than £100 million since 2000 adding 1,567 student beds to the campus, bringing the total number to 3,250.It opened a £43 million, 708-bedroom student complex in 2015 and plans to open a 293-bed block next year.Bath and North East Somerset Council is investigating whether the university gained permission to change the use of Wessex House after councillor Sandry noticed the tower block at the Claverton Down campus was now used as office space.The university has said it is cooperating with the council over “an historical planning matter dating from the 1990s”.Mr Sandry backed Mr Goodman’s call for a review of the university’s peppercorn rent today, saying the wealthy institution currently “has its cake and it eats it”.He added: “They operate as a business, get a multi-million pound government grant and have all the benefits of being a charity. This means they receive a large discount on business rates.”A spokesman for the university said: “We take the views of all our local stakeholders, including councillors, very seriously and we are committed to working with them to resolve any issues.”Dame Glynis Breakwell, the country’s highest-paid vice-chancellor, will be stepping down next year amid pressure from her own staff over her salary.

La Center schools near deal on teacher salary

first_imgLa Center’s teachers union and school administration are close to reaching an agreement that would cover the money teachers lost in statewide cuts this year, officials on both sides said. News of an impending agreement comes three weeks after the teachers union sent the district a “demand to bargain” letter seeking to renegotiate a contract that pays teachers according to the state’s salary schedule — a pay scale the Legislature cut by 1.9 percent this school year. During a special meeting Tuesday night, La Center’s school board authorized Superintendent Mark Mansell to create a package that would compensate teachers for their expected losses this year.An agreement is best for both sides because it ensures students will attend 180 class days and teachers will receive around the same amount of money they would have received prior to the cuts, Mansell and union president Jeremy Ecklund agreed. Teachers in the district would have lost between $600 and $1,200 in salary this year, depending on their classroom experience, had the cuts gone through, Mansell said. For instance, a first-year teacher would have made a base salary of $33,401 this school year, as opposed to $34,048 last year. A teacher with 16 or more years’ experience would have received a base salary of $62,955 this year, as opposed to $64,174 last year.last_img read more

2020 MercedesBenz CLA is just like the AClass only swoopier

first_img 40 Photos 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Sedans Luxury cars 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better CES 2019: All the stories so farMercedes-Benz A-Class: The littlest luxury More From Roadshow Share your voice 0 Tags Post a comment CES 2019 Mercedes-Benz 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA cuts a sharp figure at CES 2019 The CLA-Class launched in 2013 as the smallest, least-expensive Mercedes-Benz you could buy in the United States. The small four-door with a sloping, coupe-like roofline was fairly popular, even though it wasn’t super good. So following the launch of the new A-Class sedan last year, we’re getting a new CLA in time for the 2020 model year, and this one’s a whole lot better than its predecessor.The CLA will join the A-Class and GLE-Class SUV in offering Mercedes’ new MBUX infotainment system. This next-generation system promises to be a huge leap over the COMAND interface we’ve been working with for a while. An improved voice control setup recognizes the phrase “Hey Mercedes,” and can reply to complicated questions. Mercedes-Benz gave the example, “Hey Mercedes, which child-friendly Asian restaurants are nearby that are neither Chinese or Japanese?” I haven’t sampled the system yet so I can’t vouch for its reply, in our previous experiences, we’ve found it to be a mostly glitch-free setup.Enlarge ImageSeen here in with the optional AMG line appearance package, the new CLA cuts a strong figure on the road. Mercedes-Benz MBUX is housed on a standard seven-inch screen, with the accompanying seven-inch gauge cluster, but most folks will likely upgrade to the larger 10.25-inch screens. The screen is operated by touch, natch, but also by touch pads on the redesigned steering wheel as well as a new touchpad on the center console. Thankfully Mercedes-Benz has ditched the old phone-integration-for-$350 plan and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard.The CLA also gets the available Interior Assistant, first seen on the GLE. This gesture-control system takes out all that pesky button-pushing, so if you want a map light turned on, simply wave your hand towards the rear-view mirror. Need to light up the empty passenger seat? A mere gesture over the seat sheds some light. Mercedes-Benz says the technology works during the day and in complete darkness, as well.Interior Assistant can also be used to activate a favorite function. Just throw a V finger-gesture over the center console and your personal pre-programmed favorite is loaded up and ready to go. The system can distinguish between passenger and driver’s hands and bring up each person’s favorite function, accordingly.The current CLA already has adaptive cruise control, but the tech gets a bump for 2020 with route-based speed control. Utilizing the GPS, the car will automatically slow down for curves, toll plazas and the like. It can also modulate speed when crossing into a slower speed zone.2020 Mercedes-Benz CLAEnlarge ImageThe interior has a bit of a retro touch with the turbine-inspired HVAC vents, but those screens are all modern, baby. Mercedes-Benz Other new driver’s aids in the CLA include active steering assist to keep the car centered in the lane as well as active lane-change assist. Active emergency stop will bring the car to a complete stop if the system thinks you aren’t paying attention or are otherwise incapacitated.These new offerings, coupled with the now de rigueur blind spot monitoring and lane-keeping assist, mean the CLA will be one of the most techy compact offerings on the market.Things get a bit of a tweak under the hood for 2020. The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine gets a bump of 13 horses to 221 horsepower, but torque remains the same at 258 pound-feet of twist. Torque availability is between 1,800 and 4,000 rpm instead of the 1,250 and 4,000 rpm of the 2019 model. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission puts the power down to the front wheels, while all-wheel drive remains an option. Though I haven’t gotten a taste of the CLA from the driver’s seat, the hardware looks to provide a pretty sporty ride. Sway bars are thicker than in previous years to keep body roll in check and a wider stance gives the new CLA a lower center of gravity. The electric power steering has been modified to take advantage of all the little four-door has to offer, including an optional adaptive suspension program.2020 Mercedes-Benz CLAEnlarge ImageSure, it’s got a sloping roofline, but with four doors, we’re hard pressed to call the CLA a full coupe. Mercedes-Benz The 2020 CLA is a much better looking car than previous generations, thanks to a tucked in hood and new front fascia with tightly-designed headlamps. The greenhouse is small, emphasizing a wider stance. The 2020 model year has a one inch longer wheelbase and is about two inches longer overall. Cargo space decreases just a tad, down to 16.2 cubic feet of space from 16.5. You can’t have your fake-coupe and cargo too, people.Inside, the design echoes that of the new A-Class — that is to say, the now ubiquitous turbine-inspired HVAC vents are front and center, topped by the optional larger screens and plenty of ambient lighting.Mercedes-Benz did not offer any information on pricing, but the current CLA starts at $33,100 for front-wheel drive and can easily jump to the mid-$40,000s with a few option boxes ticked. With the wealth of new tech available in the 2020 model, I expect it to start closer to $40,000 and go up from there. Of course, given how attractive the A-Class is, you’d have to really want that swoopy liftback shape to pony up for the CLA. It’s an interesting decision for Mercedes to sell both simultaneously, but hey, no company knows how to slice up niche segments like Mercedes-Benz.Look for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA to hit US dealerships in late 2019.

Get Out Your Multipass The Fifth Element is Coming Back to Theaters

first_imgStay on target Science Fiction Really Hasn’t Been Good to Women 2017 is shaping up to be a great year for Luc Besson. Sci-fi fans are eagerly anticipating his adaptation of Valerian, and now his science fiction classic is celebrating its 20th anniversary. How? It’s getting a 4K restoration and a limited theatrical re-release. The newly restored version of the movie will play in theaters across the United States on Sunday, May 14 and Tuesday, May 17. Both days will have two showings, one at 2:00 p.m., and one at 7:00 p.m., local time.If you somehow haven’t seen The Fifth Element, I can’t think of a better way to experience it for the first time than this. It follows a cab driver played by Bruce Willis, who is drawn into an intergalactic conflict when a strange woman named Leeloo (played by Milla Jovovich) falls out of the sky and into his cab. Leeloo turns out to be the only being capable of saving humanity from a great evil. Gary Oldman is wonderfully hammy as a sinister industrialist, and Chris Tucker plays an eccentric radio DJ in what still may be his greatest role ever. The movie, like most of Besson’s work, is beautiful, stylish and super weird. It’s also incredibly polarizing, being called one of the best and worst movies of 1997. But possibly the coolest thing about it is that Besson started writing it at 16 years old. It took until he was 38 to actually get the movie made.Because of its bold, colorful style, The Fifth Element still looks good today. It was one of those movies almost everyone bought alongside their first DVD player when the technology was still new. It’s bright colors, and complex actions sequences made it the perfect showpiece for what your expensive new box was capable of. If you were an early adopter of DVD, chances were you had this and The Matrix on permanent rotation whenever guests came over. That’s why it’s exciting that The Fifth Element is getting a 4k remaster. Once again, it can reclaim its throne as the movie people watch after spending way too much money on new electronics.In addition to the movie, theatergoers will also get a look at Besson’s upcoming sci-fi flick, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It’s based on a French comic book, which you can read more about over here. Tickets to the screenings are available at But what if you can’t make it, and you have an expensive TV and Blu-Ray player? Well, they’ve got your very specific case covered. The 4K Blu-Ray of The Fifth Element will be released this summer on July 11, 2017. This is currently not available for pre-order but an Ultra HD version of the film is available digitally now on Amazon.last_img read more

Carlos Alvarado asks to put abortion debate on hold

first_imgPresident Carlos Alvarado asked this week to postpone a discussion about abortion rights, warning legislators that it will polarize the country and distract from other important issues, like the country’s fiscal situation and growing insecurity.Alvarado broached the subject on Thursday when the evangelical National Restoration Party (PRN) presented a plan to equate abortion sentences to those for murder, which carry a prison sentence of up to 30 years.Feminist and human rights organizations also requested that the government enact current legislation that permits abortion when the mother’s life is at risk.It’s the only circumstance in Costa Rican legislation in which abortion is legal.

He cited citizen safety, infrastructure, job creation, and the fiscal deficit, which currently stands at 6.2 percent of GDP, as priorities for his government.Alvarado also called on representatives of different sectors from around the country to work together to fix the country’s problems.
