Photo by Andrea Schmidt/Special to APTN)By Jorge Barrera APTN National News FREDERICTON–New Brunswick Premier David Alward and Elsipogtog First Nation Chief Arren Sock walked out of a meeting Monday in Fredericton holding braids of sweetgrass and pledging more talks to end an anti-fracking highway blockade that continues in a northern part of the province beneath the shadow of a court injunction ordering its dismantling.During the meeting, Texas-based environmental activists hand-delivered a letter from the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society to Houston headquarters of Southwestern Energy (SWN), the parent of the company exploring for shale gas in New Brunswick. The letter was delivered as part of Idle No More’s day of action campaign which also unfolded the same day.The blockade, on Hwy 135, has trapped several of SWN Resources Canada’s exploration vehicles in a compound.Alward and Sock met for about two and a half hours and emerged saying they had agreed to establish a working group to find a solution that would lead to the blockade’s end.Sock said he would be consulting with community members on the make-up of the working group.Alward said the groundwork for creating the committee would begin Tuesday.“What we have is the foundation,” said Alward. “We have indicated collectively, together, that we will be in dialogue every day.”This new working group, however, will take time to come together and time may work against it. A New Brunswick judge handed down an injunction against the blockade last Thursday and, should police move in to clear the blockade, the ongoing dialogue would quickly fall apart.Sock and some councillors met with SWN lawyers in Moncton Sunday who said the company would not attempt any legal maneuverings to press the issue on the blockade for at least three days.“We hope the company acts on good faith and respects the work the premier and I have done so far,” said Sock.Alward said he would not be contacting the company to discuss the situation because the issue was out of his hands.“The government does not direct how an injunction or how a legal process takes place,” said Alward.In Houston, activist with the environmental group T.E.J.A.S entered SWN’s corporate head office with a letter from the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society saying the company’s exploration was a threat and an act of “cultural genocide.” The warrior society’s letter demanded a response within 48 hours.“These attacks to our people’s water source infringe on the integrity of our cultural resources and heritage in our region,” said the letter. “Allowing further development violates our treaty rights to not only hunt, fish and gather…but our treaty right, Aboriginal right and title right to the land and water itself.”SWN’s Houston office did not return a request for comment.The warrior society wanted a seat at the table with the primier, but says it has been cut out of the process.Elsipogtog’s War Chief John Levi, however, attended Sunday’s meeting with the premier in Moncton and the band council considers him a representative of the warriors.The highway blockade is set up in Rexton, NB, about 80 kilometres north of Moncton and about 15 km northeast of Elsipogtog First Nation.RCMP vehicles have sealed off the blockade on both sides. The site sits next to a compound holding several exploration vehicles belonging to SWN.The injunction had not been served at the blockade as of this article’s posting.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeaus blackface scandal makes international headlines

No Comments on Liberal Leader Justin Trudeaus blackface scandal makes international headlines

first_imgIn its story, Politico tried to put Trudeau’s conduct into a national context for global readers, concluding that the photos had potential to do real damage.“A vast swath of Canadians finds these incidents every bit as disgraceful as their American neighbours,” the article reads. “They argue that historical differences are no excuse because blackface holds an equally objectionable — if lesser-known — place in Canada’s story.” The blackface scandal engulfing Justin Trudeau and his re-election campaign has spilled beyond Canada’s borders, with prominent international media devoting considerable space to the Liberal leader’s apology and challenging his global reputation as a champion of progressive ideals.Newspapers, websites and television stations in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and beyond gave the burgeoning scandal prominent play on Thursday, hours after an American news outlet first released a 2001 photo that threatens to upend Trudeau’s re-election bid.Time Magazine first released the image of Trudeau wearing brownface while clad in a turban Wednesday afternoon. Hours later, Trudeau apologized for the image, taken at a  British Columbia private school where he used to teach. This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 19, 2019. Since then, however, at least two other images have surfaced depicting Trudeau in blackface and drawing increasing attention from international press that once showered him with plaudits.“Mr. Trudeau has long cast himself as a glittering spokesman for the world’s beleaguered liberals, standing up to (U.S.) President (Donald) Trump, supporting gender and Indigenous rights, welcoming immigrants, and fighting climate change and racism,” wrote the New York Times. “…that carefully calibrated image suffered a major blow.”The tone was similar in many of the outlets that shied away from commentary or analysis in their coverage. Trudeau’s acknowledgment of poor judgment and racist conduct, coupled with his apology for the 2001 photo, was presented alongside his vocal espousement of progressive values and his appointment of a gender-balanced cabinet upon taking power in 2015.Such accounts could be found in outlets ranging from The Associated Press, The Guardian in the U.K., the BBC, Australia’s Sidney Morning Herald and Al Jazeera’s English service.Elsewhere, however, the coverage fell along more partisan lines.Fox News presented a fairly clinical online account of the scandal, but devoted considerable airtime to the story on the “Fox and Friends” morning show.” The outlet also penned an article taking aim at a network rival using the Trudeau controversy as a jumping-off point.center_img Michelle McQuigge, The Canadian Press CNN aired a panel where pundits weighed in on the Trudeau affair. While they condemned his previous conduct, all present focused on his subsequent apology and contrasted his behaviour with the brash approach usually favoured by Trump.“Wow, a leader apologizing,” quipped anchor Don Lemon. “It seems odd, doesn’t it? Because we have one who doesn’t.”Other outlets attempted to pull back from the immediate controversy by focusing on both Trudeau’s political past and the way in which the scandal could impact his chances for re-election. Trudeau is currently embroiled in a tight race with Conservative party Leader Andrew Scheer, with recent polls suggesting the two were in a dead heat before the photos were released.An article from The Associated Press presented Trudeau’s current woes alongside a chronicling of the SNC-Lavalin affair that dominated Canadian headlines earlier in the year. It also contrasted the images of Trudeau with similar photos of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam that emerged earlier this year, prompting calls for his resignation.last_img read more

EU to slap Google with fresh fine sources

No Comments on EU to slap Google with fresh fine sources

first_imgBrussels: The EU’s anti-trust regulator is to slap tech giant Google with a new fine over unfair competition practices, sources told AFP on Friday. Brussels has targeted the Silicon Valley firm’s AdSense advertising service, saying it restricts some client websites from displaying ads from third parties. The decision in the long-running case, first reported by the Financial Times, is the latest anti-trust salvo against Google, which has already received nearly seven billion euros in EU fines. Also Read – Spotify rolls out Siri support, new Apple TV app Two sources close to the matter said the verdict would land next week, most likely on Wednesday. “We are in the process of finalising the AdSense case,” EU competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager said earlier this week. In July 2018, the US giant was ordered to pay a record 4.34 billion euros for abusing the dominant position of Android, its smartphone operating system, to help assure the supremacy of its search engine. A year earlier it slapped Google with a fine of 2.42 billion euros for abusing its dominant position by favouring its “Google Shopping” price comparison service in search results. Google has appealed both decisions to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.last_img read more

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Twitter, “The families of sugarcane farmers toil day and night but the Uttar Pradesh government does not even take the responsibility of paying their dues.” “Rs 10,000 crore of farmers’ dues means everything, including their children’s education, food, health, and the next produce comes to a standstill.

Steve Nash Returns to Lakers Lineup in Overtime Win

No Comments on Steve Nash Returns to Lakers Lineup in Overtime Win

Steve Nash made his return to the Los Angeles Lakers lineup Saturday night to help the Lakers defeat the Golden State Warriors 118-115 in overtime.Nash, who finished with 12 points and nine assists, stated Friday that he was eyeing the Christmas day match against the New York Knicks as a definite return. He said that there was a low probability that would actually play against the Warriors, but that changed Saturday.The 38-year-old Nash had missed the last 24 games after fracturing his left fibula against the Portland Trail Blazers on Oct. 31, but felt good after Saturday’s win.“To play 40 minutes after seven weeks was more than I could ask for,” Nash said. “I felt in a decent rhythm. I feel positive about it. We’ll see (Sunday). I’ll have to keep working on it. I know it will be sore and painful but I’m used to that.”Nash did not appear to be out of shape as he broke down the Warriors defense and created shots for his teammates. Kobe Bryant thrived in Nash’s return to the lineup, finishing with 34 points and 10 rebounds.“You put two guys together who can do opposite things and it fits extremely well,” Bryant said about playing with Nash. “When I get a rebound, I look to get the ball in his hands because I know I will be getting an easy shot.”The Lakers managed to rally from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter to carry the game into overtime behind Metta World Peace and Nash. Nash hit a clutch 3-pointer in the final minutes of regulation before the Warriors came storming back. World Peace scored 20 points, and Nash nailed a step-back shot for the final basket in overtime to push the Lakers winning streak to four games.“The guy is a winner,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said of Nash. “There was a difference before the game. He changes everything. He changes the whole perspective.”Before the game D’Antoni said that with Nash in the lineup this is the blueprint that he had in mind after replacing Mike Brown. Brown was fired in November after a 1-4 start in his second season.The Lakers and D’Antoni hope that Nash can continue to orchestrate the offense as they head into their Christmas day match against the Knicks. read more

Ohio States Braxton Miller reportedly out for season

No Comments on Ohio States Braxton Miller reportedly out for season

OSU senior quarterback Braxton Miller warms up for the first session of fall practice Aug. 4 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center in Columbus. Miller missed the entirety of spring practice after undergoing shoulder surgery.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorOhio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller is expected to miss the entire 2014 season after re-injuring his shoulder Monday, according to a Tuesday afternoon ESPN report.Miller, expected to be a Heisman Trophy candidate this season, re-injured his throwing shoulder at practice Monday afternoon, a source close to the team told Lantern TV.According to the source, the team had not yet been informed of Miller’s status as of early Tuesday afternoon.He originally injured the shoulder last season in OSU’s loss to Clemson in the Orange Bowl. After undergoing offseason shoulder surgery, Miller was held out of spring practice and limited through the first portion of fall practice.OSU co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said Miller was held out of the throwing portions of a Monday morning practice, but was expected to through in the afternoon. That second session was when Miller re-injured his shoulder while throwing the ball.In between practices, Miller said he was “100 percent,” despite experiencing muscle soreness stemming from the shoulder surgery throughout camp.Miller, a native of Huber Heights, Ohio, missed two full games and most of a third in 2013 as a junior. Then-backup Kenny Guiton replaced him and led the Buckeyes to three wins.On Saturday, OSU coach Urban Meyer said redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett had moved ahead of redshirt-sophomore Cardale Jones in the team’s backup quarterback battle. Herman said the OSU offense has moved the ball better when Barrett is on the field, as opposed to Jones, so far in fall camp.Barrett’s only experience for the Scarlet and Gray outside of practice came in OSU’s 2014 Spring Game when he finished 17 of 33 on pass attempts and racked up 151 yards through the air.OSU’s 2014 season is scheduled to begin at noon Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

Despite Ohio States success against the run USC believes Ronald Jones is

No Comments on Despite Ohio States success against the run USC believes Ronald Jones is

Ohio State junior defensive end Sam Hubbard speaks to the media on Dec. 27 prior to the 2017 Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorDALLAS — Every team with a stud running back that faced Ohio State’s run defense believed it had the key to breaking through a stingy front that has allowed just 108.8 yards per game, eighth-best in the nation. But the Buckeyes stuffed nearly every high-level back they played against. Penn State’s Heisman Trophy contender Saquon Barkley managed just 2.1 yards per carry on 21 rushes, while Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor had 15 carries for 41 yards. Like all other challengers that have come before, USC believes it has a running back — junior Ronald Jones — who can break through.And while Jones sits in the shadow of potential No. 1 NFL draft pick quarterback Sam Darnold, he might be the key to a USC victory in the Cotton Bowl Friday.“They’ve done a good job against some really good running backs,” Trojans offensive coordinator Tee Martin said Wednesday. “But Ronald, I think, is different than some guys they’ve seen.”Jones sits at No. 5 in the record book for most rushing yards in USC history with 3,555 yards. This season, he has racked up 1,486 yards on 242 carries and became the first player in the program since Lendale White (2004 and 2005) to rush for at least 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons. Through 12 games, he has 18 touchdowns on the ground and has added 14 catches for 187 yards, with a touchdown.“I don’t know if, number one, I haven’t coached one like him,” Martin said. “I don’t know if in my career I’ll have another one like him.”Ohio State sophomore linebacker Malik Harrison (39), Damon Arnette (3) and Damon Webb (7) take down Penn State’s Saquon Barkley in the third quarter in the game against Penn State on Oct. 28. Ohio State won 39-38. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe challenge Jones presents to Ohio State in Friday’s Cotton Bowl differs from its prior matchups against top running backs. His combination of speed and acceleration with unexpected power from a 6-foot, 200-pound frame differs from the unexpected speed of Taylor and Barkley, both of whom weigh at least 15 pounds more than Jones.While Taylor and Barkley look physical and surprise defenses with their speed, Jones’ speed is well documented, where his physicality and power can shock the opposition.“He kind of takes a, what you call a raised step right before he gets hit and really delivers a blow, as opposed to a guy just continuing to run,” Schiano said. “That is something that I don’t know if it’s coached or not. You don’t see a lot of guys that are able to do that. I think that’s kind of a gift. And if you make a mistake, the one thing, he’s gone.”Redshirt junior defensive end Sam Hubbard said he believes Barkley and Taylor are “typical Big Ten-great running backs,” but Jones is smaller and much faster than them. Regardless, he said, the defensive gameplan does not change. “Everything’s the same,” Hubbard said. “You’ve got to be fundamentally sound, stay in your gaps and build a wall.”That wall has held strong nearly every game, though a few players — such as Iowa’s Akrum Wadley, who rushed for 118 yards on 20 carries — have broken through. Even Barkley managed a 36-yard rush in his 41-yard performance against the Buckeyes.The Trojans hope Jones can break through that wall, but are prepared to sub in backup running backs. Martin said all four tailbacks — Jones, Stephen Carr, Vavae Malepeai and Aca’Cedric Ware — are healthy for the first time this season.“We can go big, we can go small,” Martin said. “We can go fast or faster with the four backs that we have.”But the Buckeyes feel confident that they can counter the Trojans’ stable of running backs with their dominant defensive line rotation.“If they’re going to keep cycling running backs in and running the ball, their offensive line is going to get worn down,” Hubbard said. “I feel like we have that advantage in at least the rotation if they try and go up-tempo just because we’re so deep at the defensive line.”Though the Trojans plan to rotate running backs, Jones will be the key to kick-starting a run game that became more important late in the year.During the final stretch of the season, Jones became USC’s featured offensive weapon. After having more than 20 carries just once through the Trojans’ first nine games of the year, he had 25-plus carries in each of the final four games, tallying at least 122 yards in each contest. Ohio State quarterbacks coach Ryan Day told the defense Jones would be one of the top-two running backs the Buckeyes face this season, along with Barkley, sophomore defensive end Nick Bosa said. But the ever-confident, second-team All-American is not worried.“[Jones] was a track guy, so he’s really fast and he’s a pretty big dude,” Bosa said. “So we just have to bottle him up. “We’ve done pretty well with that this year so it’ll be just like the same.” read more

VAR will have a big influence on World Cup – Lopetegui

No Comments on VAR will have a big influence on World Cup – Lopetegui

first_imgSpain manager Julen Lopetegui believes that the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) will have a major “influence” on the World Cup this summer and believes that there is no point complaining about the technologyThe International Football Association Board in Zurich in March gave VAR their unanimous approval and voted for the system to be used permanently.While goal-line technology was used in the previous World Cup in Brazil in 2014, this will be the first time that VAR will debut in world football’s biggest competition and will be used by the match officials to determine whether any errors were committed in regards to decisions for penalties, goals, straight red cards and mistaken identity.Lopetegui, who will be hoping to erase Spain’s previous poor display in the 2014 World Cup with a strong run in Russia, believes that due to the players having a lack of experience with VAR it will have a heavy influence on games and he will be making sure his squad is fully prepared for the system.“It’s certainly an important issue, no doubt about that,” said the 51-year-old told AS.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“VAR is going to influence and condition lots of games at the World Cup. For example, using it will mean stopping and starting games; that in itself has an effect on the continuity and rhythm of them.“Spain like to have long spells with the ball and wear down their opponents, so we’ll need to be ready for what is a brand new situation for us. Of course, we’ll make sure we are fully prepared for VAR and all its various scenarios, for when matches are stopped and then started again.“I’ve analysed where VAR is in use and see that there are usually a lot of goals scored just after stoppages for it, which shows that teams make full use of the break in play and concentration of their opponents.“But there’s no point in complaining about it as we must be ready for VAR. We’ll be studying it with the players and making sure they are prepared.

Fiat Chrysler recalling 862520 vehicles to meet emissions standards

No Comments on Fiat Chrysler recalling 862520 vehicles to meet emissions standards

first_imgJeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck Comments General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Share your voice 26 Photos Car Industry 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV Post a comment Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: Holy hell 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families More From Roadshow 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Enlarge ImageA new set of cats will clear this right up. Dodge Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will recall 862,520 vehicles for not meeting emissions standards, Reuters reports, citing comments from the EPA. FCA subsequently confirmed the recall to Roadshow. The recall covers the 2011-2014 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger, 2011-2012 Dodge Caliber and 2011-2016 Dodge Journey.This Is a bit different than your average safety recall. This is actually not a safety recall, but an emissions recall. They come from the EPA, rather than NHTSA, and are typically the result of after-the-fact tests submitted to the EPA by the automaker, which can then begin the recall process if the results aren’t as expected. There’s a good chance we’ll be hearing about more of these types of recalls in the future, as the EPA is changing its communications model to include emissions recall announcements.It should be noted that the issue has no direct safety implications to drivers and passengers, and the EPA has not levied any fines as a result of this discovery. A FCA spokesperson, in an email to Roadshow, said it was the result of a routine series of tests performed on in-service vehicles.The remedy is relatively straightforward. FCA technicians will replace the catalytic converters in all affected vehicles. Because the old converters are still loaded with all manner of precious metals, the automaker will recycle them to recapture as much of that material as possible.The FCA spokesperson also told Roadshow that it began notifying owners of the affected vehicles last month, so owners should keep an eye out for first-class mail about the recall. As always, the recall repairs will be performed free of charge. Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Fiat Chrysler Dodge,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model More about 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye 18 Photos Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Recalls Dodge Chrysler 81 Photos Tags Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Car Industry Crossovers Sedanscenter_img Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 3 0 Tags Review • 2019 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye review: The 797-horsepower tire slayer 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 10 Photos 71 Photos 12 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 49 Photos 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk: Everything is better with 707 horsepower More From Roadshow 69 Photos 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch Share your voice 68 Photos 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot.

Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running.

Disney/Lucasfilm Star Wars: The Clone Wars will reportedly drop off Netflix on April 7, days before Disney is expected to unveil its own streaming service.The beloved CGI animated series’ departure from Netflix, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, isn’t a huge surprise. We found out last summer that the show would be getting a seventh season exclusively on the Disney+ service. It makes sense that that Disney would want the rest of The Clone Wars — which is set between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, and which consists of a feature-length movie and six seasons — on its own platform. last_img read more
