Experts explains if the coronavirus is impacting the Big 3 auto industry

Auto Analyst Jeff Gilbert says that, China is the largest auto market in the world, and the coronavirus has pretty much shut down about 80 percent of that business. And that’s not good for U.S. auto makers.  Auto Analyst Jeff Gilbert says that, China is the largest auto market in the world, and the coronavirus has pretty much shut down about 80 percent of that business. And that’s not good for U.S. auto makers. “That’s a big deal for General Motors players in China and also a big deal for Ford and Fiat Chrysler because they want to be big players in China,” said Gilbert, WWJ 950. The World Health Organization states that over 2,600 people have died and more than 77,000 have been affected by the coronavirus, mostly in China – which affected auto company suppliers as well. “A number of suppliers were closed for a long time in China -so they’ve had trouble re-opening which has caused assembly plants in Asia to shut down and a couple ones in Europe,” Gilbert said. “Those parts are literally on a slow boat from China so it’s going to take a while before we feel the impact if we do,” he said. “They know how ...

Michael Turco might make an assistant disappear, or levitate, or appear to turn into someone else

Michael Turco might make an assistant disappear, or levitate, or appear to turn into someone else when the Masters of Illusion come to the F.M. Kirby Center for the Performing Arts in Wilkes-Barre. Dan Sperry is known for adding a touch of the macabre to his performances. ‘He does an amazing bird act,’ fellow magician Michael Turco said. When the Masters of Illusion come to the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre next week, there likely will be two kinds of people in the audience. One group just wants to watch. The other would love to become part of the show, whether that means they’d have a chance to choose a card from a deck, try to wriggle out of a straightjacket or …. take part in some other procedure a magician might have up his sleeve. “I’ll ask about 20 to 25 people to choose themselves, to just walk up on stage,” illusionist Michael Turco said in telephone interview. “This will be their shot.” The Masters of Illusion tour, which spun off the CW television show of the same name, features not only Turco, who is known for making his assistants appear to levitate or disappear, but Dan Sperry, who adds a touch of the macabre and, as Turco explains, “does an amazing bird act;” T...

Uber’s self-driving cars are a key to its path to profitability

Its co-founder and ousted CEO Travis Kalanick sold all his stock and left the company’s board late last year. Uber sold its much fast-growing food-delivery Eats division in India and public markets have voted by sending the stock steadily down since its debut as investors question its path to profitability. “The vision for growth is absolutely there. But growth where it makes sense.” Dara Khosroshahi, Uber’s CEO told CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin during an interview at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Unsaid in Khosrowshahi’s statement is the pivot to profitability in a market environment that’s stopped giving loss making “unicorns” a free pass. Khosrowshahi’s goal is to get Uber to profitability by 2021. And the sharpest arrow in the company’s arsenal to achieving profitability is also the least understood. Uber’s self-driving unit, the Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), has an estimated valuation of over $7 billion, representing more than10% of Uber’s current market cap of about $61 billion. And yet, Uber’s management or even the analyst community rarely discuss it. But speaking to t...

A Short History Of Aluminum, From Precious Metal To Beer Can : NPR

Aluminum ingots sit stacked in a warehouse at the Port of New Orleans last year. Bloomberg via Getty Images hide caption Short Wave is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the periodic table with profiles of some of its favorite elements. Here are a few things you may not have known about aluminum. Aluminum is the most abundant metal on Earth, and one of the cheapest to buy. But it used to be more valuable than gold. Aluminum is the third most common element in the Earth’s crust, but it also bonds easily with other elements. That means it is not found in nature as a pure metal. For decades after it was first identified by British chemist Sir Humphry Davy in the early 1800s, scientists and tinkerers tried, and mostly failed, to find a good method for separating aluminum from everything else that stuck to it. France’s Emperor Napoleon III was an early proponent of aluminum. He hoped the lightweight metal could be used to produce weapons and armor, giving his soldiers an edge in battle. The emperor funded the work of Henri Sainte-Claire Deville, who found a chemical method for obtaining pure aluminum, but it was still a slow process. An often repeated story goes that Na...

Samsung CRG9 super-ultra-wide gaming monitor review: Not too expensive

For six months, I’ve been living in an alternate reality playing video games on Samsung’s crazy super-ultra-wide CRG9 gaming monitor, Now that I’m back to reality playing on a more standard sized monitor, it’s clear that the $1,300 CRG9 is a lot more than just a gaming monitor — it’s a symbol of peak video gaming entertainment.  So it goes, TVs and monitors get better and better with higher resolutions for super sharp graphics and higher refresh rates for smoother gameplay. But few companies have tried to change the shape of your video games quite like Samsung does with its super-ultra-wide monitors.  Samsung’s super-ultra-wide monitors are twice the size of a standard screen, letting games stretch their legs beyond the standard rectangular frame that many are used to. As a result, games are allowed to shine in a way that normally-sized monitors can’t replicate. And, surprisingly, I don’t think $1,300 is too much to ask for something like this, either. Many gamers connect their consoles to high-end $3,000 OLED televisions. For those who want the best experience on a powerful PC gaming rig, and can afford it, this super-ultra-wide m...

But last night, MAFS contestant Mishel Karen claimed the $1000 CPAP device she uses every night

But last night, MAFS contestant Mishel Karen claimed the $1000 CPAP device she uses every night also has another benefit – keeping her skin youthful. “I sleep with a CPAP machine,” she said. “I believe it keeps me youthful … it’s an amazing look when you wake up next to me I’m sure.” At 48, the Brisbane bride is the oldest of this year’s contestants but she certainly doesn’t look it. A study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine also found sleep apnoea patients who used the machine showed an improvement in physical appearance. To get to their findings they looked at the before-and-after photos of 20 adults with sleep issues and found that after two months of using the machine there was a visible difference. Places of improvement included the forehead, where surface volume decreased, and cheeks, which showed less redness. “Patients with obstructive sleep apnoea are perceived to appear more alert, more youthful, and more attractive after adherent use of positive airway pressure,” the study concluded. “Objective changes in facial surface volume and colour were identified.” The unlikely skin benefits a...
