DuPont wins proxy fight against billionaire investor Peltz’s Trian Fund Management WILMINGTON, Del. – Dupont shareholders on Wednesday flatly rejected a contentious campaign by one of the most powerful investor firms in the U.S. for seats on the board of the 212-year-old chemical company.Nelson Peltz and his Trian Fund Management L.P., a major shareholder, had sought more influence at DuPont, saying that the company was falling short of its potential. CEO Ellen Kullman has resisted Peltz’s campaign vigorously, saying that he had mischaracterizing DuPont’s performance.DuPont shares slumped 6 per cent in morning trading.Kullman said the proxy fight showed that DuPont needs to do a better job explaining its ongoing transformation from a traditional chemicals company to a growth company focused on developing advanced materials, bio-based industrial products, and new seed, food and agricultural products to improve the global food supply.“I think we as a company don’t tell our story well enough,” she said. “We’ve undergone a lot of change, and as we’ve engaged with shareholders, even retail, it was clear that they remembered a company of maybe 20 years ago, not the company that we’re creating going forward.”As an example, Kullman pointed to the upcoming spinoff of DuPont’s performance chemicals unit into a separate commodity chemicals company called Chemours. She said Peltz’ fight for board seats forced the company to move up its public relations campaign about the spinoff.“We were going to go out and do that in June. We ended up doing that in April and May,” she said.Peltz’s Trian Fund Management owns about 24.6 million DuPont shares, making it the company’s fifth-largest shareholder. Since first buying huge stakes in the company almost two years ago, he has criticized DuPont for missing its earnings targets and failing to meet its goals, laid out in 2011, of a 12 per cent compound growth rate in operating earnings per share, and a 7 per cent compound annual growth rate in sales.Trian had nominated four directors for DuPont’s board but came up empty.“I think we lost because they probably did a better job with the press… I think they clearly did a better job with the retail shareholder who really doesn’t understand the issues of the company,” said Peltz, who claimed “overwhelming support” from institutional investors and mutual funds.“I think there was a lot of scare tactics employed,” he said, rejecting DuPont’s assertions that he wanted to over-leverage the company and slash funding for research and development.Peltz also took credit for several actions taken by DuPont since Trian took a stake in the company, including a $5 billion share buyback program, new cost cuts, the placement of two new directors on the board, and the spinoff of Chemours.“All of that stuff didn’t happen by accident,” he said, adding that Trian will continue to monitor DuPont.“I think they will feel the pressure. I think we’ve got a situation today where the emperor has no clothes…. We’ve shown the full picture. It’s up to this board and this management team to carry forward.”___AP Business Writer Michelle Chapman contributed to this report from New York.

She noted that his outburst was as a result of frustration on the part of the defendant.However, Police Prosecutor, Deniro Jones in disclosing the facts of the case, told the Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan that Reid visited the Ministry and requested to speak with the Minister but after not being able to meet with the Minister he became enraged and hurled profanities, while behaving in a disorderly manner, prompting the Minister to have him escorted from the building.At around 13:15h the said day, Reid allegedly placed a call to the said Ministry’s secretary threatening to kill the Minister.As such, he was arrested and later charged with the offence.Reid was however granted bail in the sum of $10,000, was ordered to stay 50 feet away from the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs and to make weekly reports at the Alberttown Police Station.He was also placed on a bond to be on good behaviour until the completion of the trial into the matter.
With every passing year technology becomes more personal and offers us more choice and control over our data and increasingly our surroundings. MIT is working to increase that control even further by developing a simple plastic wristband that will allow you to take charge of your environment as well as helping to conserve resources.Called WristQue, the project seeks to create a useful way for you to communicate with smart sensors that have been installed in a building. The wristband includes just three simple buttons, two to control temperature up and down, and a third offering the ability to interact with multiple electronic devices (computers, projectors, TV, etc.) using gestures. If the temperature of the room you are in is not to your liking, you will be able to simply adjust it using the WristQue. What happens when there are other people in the room with you? If there are three or more individuals present, then the majority will rule. If it’s just you and your spouse, the software will try to find a happy medium between the two desired temperatures. Each WristQue will be made via a 3D printer and contains sensors for detecting humidity and temperature levels as well as a wideband radio and microprocessor. This will help to pinpoint an individual’s location so the software knows which room to allow the user to interact with. While the project is still in development, MIT is taking the opportunity to test it with students in its Media Lab building. By tracking each individuals settings and movements, the system tries to predict when a room is going to be used and by whom so that it can get the climate right. In addition, motion sensors have been installed to signal the software when a room is empty, giving it the all-clear to bring the temperature to a maintenance level, therefore saving energy. As an example of how effective WristQue could be, this simple trial has cut energy use in the MIT Media Lab building by 24% over a 3 week period.Those savings were made just from controlling the climate, with the WristQue still to get lighting and electronic device control turned on. If they work effectively too, it could allow for a significant cut in energy use in both public and private buildings, including our homes. All done without us really having to think about it.Read more at New Scientist
Additional crews will be arriving on the fire to aid in the construction of fire line and help secure the fire’s edge. Firefighters will continue to utilize aviation resources as conditions and visibility allow. Expect long delays on the Sterling Highway from MP 53 to MP 71 due to fire activity and smoke impacts. Drive with headlights on and yield to fire vehicles and first responders. Travel is not advised Sunday. Sarah Saarloos with the Division of Forestry: “The meeting was attended by over 50 people and was well received.” On Sunday, firefighters will continue with the full containment strategy by completing control line utilizing natural barriers where possible. North to northwest winds could cause an increase in fire activity on the east and southeast portions of the fire. On Sunday, winds will prevail from the south-southwest as a weak low-pressure center passes to the south over the Gulf of Alaska. Cloud cover will increase through the day with some afternoon cumulus development possible across the mountains. Temperatures will be in the low-mid 60s. A slight chance for light and isolated showers is possible, but wetting rains are unlikely.

2019 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition first drive: Its roots are showing It’s the 50th anniversary of a legendary sports car, Nissan’s Fairlady Z. To celebrate that momentous occasion, Nissan brought the 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition to the New York Auto Show.Enlarge ImageThe silver-and- black scheme is more subdued, if you’re trying to be more discreet with your celebrating. Steven Pham/Roadshow The company will be pulling off the wrapping paper this week at the New York International Auto Show. The Big Apple holds a special spot in Z history. It was here, fifty years ago, that the world first saw the Datsun 240Z.The special-edition Z really amounts to an appearance package, but unlike the 50th-anniversary editions we’ve seen with the Corvette, 911 and Mustang, the 50th-anniversary Z is racing-inspired. It takes cues from the #46 BRE (Brock Racing Enterprises) Datsun 240Z.”Peter Brock’s competition-tuned 240Z changed the American motorsports landscape,” says Ivan Espinosa, Nissan’s VP of global product strategy and planning. “After the BRE 240Z debuted in 1970, Nissan/Datsun became one of the most successful companies in American motorsports — with thousands of victories over the past five decades.”Enlarge ImageThe stripe package certainly stands out. Steven Pham/Roadshow The 50th-anniversary package will be available only on the 370Z’s Sport trim. If the white-and-red scheme is a bit much for you, the silver-and-black look is a little more restrained.Aside from the two-tone/racing-stripe appearance, the 50th Anniversary Edition features a rear spoiler, “50th Anniversary” badges and specific, 19-inch Rays forged wheels. Inside, you get an Alcantara steering wheel, unique seat stitching, embossed “50th Anniversary” logos on the seatbacks and dark chrome accents, among other special touches. All 50th Anniversary Editions also come standard with an eight-speaker Bose premium audio system.Under the hood lies the same 3.7-liter V6 making 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, sent through a rev-matching six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed automatic with paddle shifters, either of which are connected to a viscous limited-slip differential. Brakes are four-piston, 14-inch units up front and two-piston, 13.8-inch stoppers out back. All standard fare for the Sport trim.The 2020 Nissan 370Z 50th Anniversary Edition hits dealerships nationwide this month, but pricing is yet to be announced.

Water resistance Yes Fitbit Inspire HR Fitbit Inspire HR vs. Xiaomi Mi Band 4 Monochrome OLED touchscreen Sleep tracking Yes Heart-rate tracker Review • Xiaomi Mi Band review: A bargain price fitness band with great battery life 3 Up to 50m Comments Note CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. See Fitbit Inspire HR at Amazon ($95)See Xiaomi Mi Band 4 at Walmart ($35) Angela Lang/CNET Fitness and health tracking: Advantage Fitbit Where the Fitbit really shines is exercise tracking. There are 15 activity types ranging from kickboxing to Pilates to swimming, although you can only have six of them active on the band at any one time. The Mi Band 4 only has six activity types total — running, treadmill, cycling, walking, pool swimming and a generic “exercise” type you can choose if your workout doesn’t fall within any of the existing categories. For step tracking, I felt the Fitbit overestimated my effort slightly and I could game the system with arm movements (case in point: chair dancing made me hit 10,000 steps one day) when I had only got around 8,700 on the Mi Band. But heart rate tracking during exercise, such as my outdoor run, was fairly consistent between both trackers. Average and maximum heart rate readings were within a few beats per minute of each other. Neither one has built in GPS which means you will need to take your phone with you for outdoor exercises. But only the Fitbit has automatic workout detection in case you forget to start your workout on the tracker. I wore both trackers to bed for several nights and found the Fitbit was far more accurate in reading my sleep patterns. One night, I remembered I was awake for what seemed like an eternity. The Fitbit said I had been awake for an hour, while the Mi Band said I had 0 minutes of awake time. Fitbit’s app is also a lot nicer than the Mi Fit app and the data is much easier to interpret than the Mi Fit app when it comes to heart rate zones. The Fitbit app tells you if you’re in areas like fat burn or cardio after you’ve finished an activity, so you know how hard you worked. The Mi Fit app has heart rate zones as well, but for me it was easier to understand what fat burn meant, rather than anaerobic or VO2 max. The Fitbit is the only one that can monitor women’s health through menstrual tracking. Angela Lang/CNET Mi Band 4 wins on smart features For those looking for smartwatch-like features, the Mi Band has more to offer. For starters, it allows you to play back your music by swiping across from the main screen. There are also plenty of watch faces to choose from, including a myriad of third-party options, while the Fitbit is limited to about 15 in the app. The screen itself is much nicer, too. The Mi Band has a color AMOLED display with adjustable brightness. The Inspire HR has a monochrome OLED screen which is hard to see in bright, outdoor situations like when I was on my run. I also found it easier to interpret my workout data faster on the Mi Band because it shows distance and pace on the main screen rather than having to flick through different screens to find it on the Fitbit. That said, the Mi Band 4 did give me intermittent issues with raise to wake; sometimes it would take a good second for the time to display on the watch when I moved my wrist, other times it wouldn’t detect at all. The Fitbit was a lot more reliable. Both can mirror notifications from your phone, although you won’t be able to respond to them (except for rejecting a call on the Mi Band 4). The Fitbit is only officially rated to give up to five days battery, but I ended up getting about a week’s worth of use, which was a nice bonus. That said, it was no match for the Mi Band 4. I got two-and-a-half weeks out of it before I had to give it a charge. To find out which fitness tracker got my vote in the end, watch the video above. Originally published Aug. 20. $80, £83, AU$180 Share your voice Yes (24/7 monitoring) Yes Up to 5 days Color AMOLED touchscreen Up to 20 days Fitbit has long been the king of fitness trackers with bands like the Inspire HR, but there’s no shortage of wearables looking to take the crown, such as the Samsung Galaxy Fit and Garmin Vivosmart. They can track your steps, monitor heart rate and keep an eye on your fitness, plus have smart features like getting notifications from your phone. All these fitness trackers cost between $80 and $100, but Xiaomi’s new Mi Band 4 is significantly cheaper — it’s around $35 in the US from Amazon or Walmart — and shares many similar features. So which is the best budget fitness tracker?To find out if the cheaper Mi Band 4 can keep up with its higher-end rivals, I wore it alongside the Fitbit Inspire HR for two weeks.

Inventory pile-up at dearlership level and stock management of the unsold BS IV vehicles has become a problem for the sector.IANSAfter denting the auto sector’s profitability, the consumption slowdown along with the upcoming shift to BS VI standards will further decelerate production, leading to eventual job losses.Industry insiders point out that slowdown, which is a culmination of high GST tax rates, farm distress, stagnant wages and liquidity constraints, has led to the month-on-month sales de-growth.Besides, inventory pile-up at dearlership level and stock management of the unsold BS IV vehicles has become a problem for the sector.According to Grant Thornton India Partner Sridhar V., a further reduction in production due to the continuing de-growth in sales of passenger vehicles can be expected.”OEMs are exploring avenues to minimise cost at a operational level by deferring and tightening the spending rate,” Sridhar V. told IANS.”They also at times resort to production cuts to tide over this difficult phase.”Accordingly, the sales downturn assumes significance as the auto industry contributes to almost half of the manufacturing GDP and 11 per cent of the total GST revenue.”With prolonged weak consumer demand, the inventories at dealer levels have peaked, necessitating production cuts by OEMs,” Richa Bulani, Senior Analyst, India Ratings & Research (Fitch Group), told IANS.”Production cuts may provide some short-term relief to dealers, it negatively affects the entire auto supply chain — OEMs, component suppliers and dealers. Volume growth of components dependent on OEMs will be affected in the first half.”Recently, all major OEMs consisting of passenger, commercial, two and three wheeler manufacturers have reported a massive decline in domestic sales.Figures from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) showed that domestic passenger car sales in June went down by 24.07 per cent to 139,628 units. The July figures are awaited.In the commercial vehicle segment, domestic sales were down by 12.27 per cent to 70,771 units last month.The overall sales of two-wheelers, which include scooters, motorcycles and mopeds, edged lower by 11.69 per cent to 1,649,477 units.In all, the total sales of the Indian automobile sector declined by 12.34 per cent during June 2019 to 1,997,952 units across segments and categories.Consequently, sales slowdown led to curtailment of manufacturing with the domestic passenger cars’ production coming down by 22.26 per cent to 169,594 units from 218,167 units.Similarly, the commercial vehicle production was down by 23.39 per cent to 69,496 units last month. Overall two-wheelers’ production edged lower by 11.70 per cent to 1,915,195 units.The total production of the Indian automobile sector declined by 12.98 per cent during June 2019 to 2,336,138 units across segments and categories.”Tight control on production volumes will continue. Beyond the upcoming festive season when OEMs would expect to have sufficient volume in the channel, they would want to keep production volume output in check,” said Rahul Mishra, Principal, A.T. Kearney.”Volume liquidation pressures due to BS VI and the sluggish demand will not revive production output drastically for the next few months.”

First-time claims for unemployment insurance fell for the fourth time in the last five weeks, dropping 5,000 to 343,000 for week ending June 29, the “”Labor Department””:http://www.ows.doleta.gov/press/2013/070313.asp reported Wednesday.[IMAGE]Economists expected 345,000 claims. Claims filings for the week ending June 22 were revised up to 348,000 from the originally reported 346,000.The number of persons continuing to collect unemployment insurance for the week ending June 22, reported on a one week lag, dropped 54,000 to 2,933,000. The prior week’s original report of 2,965,000 original claims was revised up to 2,987,000.The four-week moving average of first-time claims dropped 750 to 345,500. The four-week moving average of continuing claims declined 9,500 to 2,969,250 for the period ending June 22.The claims report was issued one day early because of the July 4 holiday, which gave analysts less time to review and confirm data from states. Data from states is typically reported to the Labor Department on the Monday of the week in which the report is released.The report on new and continuing claims will have no impact on the monthly employment situation report for June, to be released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) on Friday.From mid-May to mid-June, the number of initial claims increased 11,000, while the four-week average of first-time claims went up 8,000, suggesting layoffs could be a drag on payrolls and the unemployment rate in the employment situation report. Wednesday’s report wrapped up an encouraging second quarter, which saw an average of 345,538 first-time filings each week, down from 353,538 in the first quarter. For the first half of the year, initial filings averaged 349,538, down from 373,731 in the previous six months and from 375,615 in the first half of 2012. From an analytic perspective, the decline in claims filings–to below the theoretical “”tipping point”” of 350,000–means layoffs will be less of a drag on the monthly report on payroll jobs.Economists have observed that 350,000 or fewer weekly first-time claims correlates historically with an improving labor market. Initials claims have been under 350,000 for four of the last five weeks and five of the last seven.[COLUMN_BREAK]While continuing claims have followed a similar downward trend, those numbers are distorted by the budget sequester, which reduced funding for emergency and extended unemployment insurance programs. States have responded by either shortening the unemployment insurance program or reducing payments.Continuing claims have averaged 3,068,600 each week since the beginning of the year compared with 3,277,654 for the first half of the year and 3,360,539 for the first six months of 2012. Both the continuing and initial claims data sets were helped by seasonal adjustment factors higher than the previous week. Higher seasonal adjustment factors–which adjust raw data for known and predictable influences on claims such as holidays–increase the numbers for both data series.The Labor Department reported the total number of people claiming benefits in all programs for the week ending June 15 was 4,557,765, an increase of 1,059 from the previous week. There were 5,857,081 persons claiming benefits in all programs in the comparable week in 2012. Extended benefits were not available in any state during the week ending June 15. According to the BLS, 11,760,000 persons were officially considered unemployed in May, with 4,357,000 “”long-term”” unemployed–that is, out of work for at least 27 weeks. Of those individuals counted as unemployed, 7.20 million were not receiving any form of government unemployment insurance for the week ending June 15, essentially unchanged from the week earlier.The Labor Department also reported 1,667,864 persons claiming EUC (Emergency Unemployment Compensation) benefits for the week ending June 15, a decrease of 39,245 from the prior week. There were 2,616,147 persons claiming EUC in the comparable week in 2012. EUC benefits this year were directly threatened by the federal budget sequester. According to the Labor Department detail, also reported on a one-week lag, the largest increases in initial claims for the week ending June 22 were in California (+6,181), New Jersey (+4,952), Oregon (+2,076), New York (+1,882), and Massachusetts (+732), while the largest decreases were in Pennsylvania (-4,238), Florida (-2,050), North Carolina (-2,009), Ohio (-1,679), and Kentucky (-1,466).Four of the six states reporting claims dropped by at least 1,000 from the prior week–Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina and Ohio–cited fewer layoffs in the construction sector. The other two states–Kentucky and Illinois–offered no explanation for the drop in claims. The four states reporting an increase in claims of at least 1,000–California, New Jersey, Oregon and New York–all saw a jump in layoffs in the service sector, with New Jersey and New York reporting more layoffs in the health care sector._Hear Mark Lieberman Friday on P.O.T.U.S. Radio, Sirius-XM 124, July 8 at 12:20 p.m. Eastern._ in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technology First-Time Jobless Claims Continue Downward Trend Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bureau of Labor Statistics Confidence Consumer spending Investors Jobs Labor Department Lenders & Servicers Mark Lieberman Payrolls Processing Service Providers Unemployment 2013-07-03 Mark Lieberman July 3, 2013 455 Views Share
Palm Beach, Florida – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineStriking a serene, spa-inspired sensibility that suits both the sophistication and natural beauty of its oceanfront locale, celebrated Canadian interior designer Brian Gluckstein is at the helm of a total transformation of the guestrooms and suites at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach. Gluckstein, who last year won rave reviews for his design of a new Spa at the resort, once again draws on a soft palette of sea-glass colors, infusing the resort’s 210 guestrooms and suites with a clean, contemporary look. The renovation is well under way and scheduled to be completed in time for Christmas 2010.“The change is dramatic, yet consistent with the timeless feel of the new spa and lobby of the resort” said General Manager Kathleen Horrigan. “It’s the style of décor our guests would choose for their own ocean-front homes,” she said, noting residential touches such as plush, comfortable seating and artwork evoking the sea’s rhythmic tides. In keeping with the ocean themes of the Spa, the new rooms feature modern Art-Deco style custom furnishings in colors that mirror the changing hues of the sea, sky and sand; “iced slate”, “seafoam”, “cirrus” and “soft fern” are just a few of the names for the luxurious fabrics. Maple credenzas and nightstands finished in a special blend of colors and faced with a glaze called “seashell”, contribute to a light, airy look.Gluckstein created spaces that are a restful oasis, while emphasizing the views. The renovated bathrooms feature separate tubs and shower stalls, with pale ivory marble throughout and ivory, taupe and white mosaic floor tile from Greece reminiscent of seashells on the beach. “As with the Spa, my approach was to create restful spaces inspired by the Resort’s ocean-front setting, intimate nature, and residential style. Guests of Four Seasons Palm Beach think of it as their home and my objective was to bring an elegant beach house aesthetic to the rooms,” said Gluckstein.Amongst interior designers, Brian Gluckstein is known for combining casual sophistication, comfort and understated elegance. His designs grace public spaces such as the model residences at the new Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, the Windsor Arms Hotel and private residences across North America. His retail lines include home furnishings and accessories sold throughout Canada.www.fourseasons.com
