first_imgIn a major boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ programme that envisions Indians to be able to manufacture and service many of our current imports, the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has bagged an order to manufacture 14 Do-228 aircraft for the Indian Air Force at a order value of ₹1,090 crore.The contract calls for six reserve engines, a single flight simulator and associated equipment, HAL’s Chairman T Suvarna Raju said on Thursday. He noted that the contract reflected the trust the Defence establishment has on HAL and that the organisation remains committed in its support the nation’s defence needs. An Agni Air plane, a German-made Dornier 228 that is similar to the model that crashed on Tuesday, taxis at the domestic airport in Kathmandu.ReutersOne of the key sectors that PM Modi wants to see investment and local manufacturing is the defence sector. Currently, India ranks as the world’s biggest importer of defence related products.Dornier Do-228HAL holds the license to locally produce the Dornier Do-228 aircraft, of which it has produced 125 aircrafts, since 1983, supplying the Indian Armed Forces and also exporting the aircraft to Indian Ocean nations of Seychelles and Mauritius.The aircraft would be manufactured at HAL’s Kanpur facility.The Dornier Do-228 was designed and developed by Dornier GmbH in the late 1970s. The aircraft proved itself as a reliable, multipurpose and fuel efficient aircraft. It’s rugged but light weight twin turboprop design and a retractable tricycle landing gear allows the aircraft to operate from smaller airfields.The aircraft cockpit allows for two-person operation, and can carry 19 passenger in the commuter configuration, reported BusinessLine.last_img read more

It’s an open race, as longtime trustee Harvin Moore is retiring early.Sung, a former teacher and education advocate, came the closest to winning: She won about 47 percent of the vote, with more than 68 percent of ballots counted. It’s the second time Sung has run for District VII, which spans River Oaks to Harwin and includes Lamar and Wisdom high schools.Luman came in second, with about 30 percent of the vote and also securing a spot in the runoff. Luman is a lawyer and lobbyist, who led a successful fight earlier this year to stop an affordable-housing complex near his children’s school in Briargrove.The other two candidates, Victoria Bryant and Danielle Paulus, trailed in the vote count.It’s not clear yet when the runoff election will be scheduled.last_img read more

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Smartphones don’t play well with hot cars. If you’ve ever received the dreaded temperature warning on your phone’s home screen after leaving it in a sizzling vehicle for too long, you know exactly what we’re talking about. And so does General Motors.The struggling American automaker knows your phone needs to cool out in the dog days of summer, too, just like you. If it doesn’t, if the temperature around your iPhone, Android or, fine, your BlackBerry, exceeds about 95 degrees, the high heat can shorten its battery life and potentially slow down its processor. Double bummer. Worse, permanent damage could occur and, in rare cases, the gadget you can’t live without could completely go kaput.Related: Proceed With Caution: Should Smartphones Come With a Warning?Terrifying, right? Well, GM, in a bid to “find new roads” and connect with tech-savvy younger drivers, doesn’t want any of the above to happen to your precious phone either. That’s why the 107-year-old company is adding a fancy new smartphone air-conditioning feature to some of its 2016 Chevy models, a modern move its hailing an “industry first.”Finally, your phone can chill out in its own, personal “Active Phone Cooling” cubby, basically a nook outfitted with a plastic a/c vent nozzle. That is if you get behind the wheel of a wireless-charging equipped 2016 Chevy Cruze, Impala, Malibu or Volt.GM says its engineers stumbled upon the idea while testing a smartphone wireless charging feature. “They noticed some smartphones would suspend charging or shut off all together after only a few minutes in high temperatures inside a car’s cabin,” a statement from the Detroit-based company reads. To combat the problem, they simply directed an air vent connected to the car’s a/c and ventilation system at the “charging bin where the phone rests.” And — easy, breezy — cooled air helps keep your phone from frying like an egg. Crisis averted…or so they say.Related: Texting and Driving? Not So Fast — General Motors is Watching You“Innovation doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel,” Impala engineer Dan Lascu says. “Sometimes simplicity offers the most elegant solution to a problem.”Simple — or just plain silly — we see this thing catching on, given ‘Murica’s incurable addiction to smartphones. Someday, probably sooner than later, maybe smartphone a/c will come standard in all vehicles, even the ones we won’t drive. Either way, here’s to hoping better backseat a/c routing rolls out first to keep other precious cargo — like living things, pets and kids — cool.Related: GM Open to Working With Google on Developing Self-Driving Cars      For more on how the chill new feature works, check out this video:What do you think?

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. January 28, 2019 Open most new smartphones today and you’ll find a mix of paper, card, and plastic packaging. There’s really no need for any plastic to be used outside of the product itself, and Samsung is committed to removing all of it starting this year.Samsung’s commitment goes well beyond its phones, though. The South Korean company produces a huge range of handheld and wearable devices through to large home appliances. All of them typically have some plastic as part of the packaging and Samsung plans to ditch the lot.Packaging is still required, though, so Samsung will fill that need using recycled and bioplastics. Recycled plastics ensure the plastic we’ve already produced remains useful rather than ending up polluting our oceans and water supply. Bioplastics are derived from biomass such as food waste, woodchips, corn starch, or agricultural by-products. They are by no means perfect, but require less energy to produce and biodegrade much more quickly.To begin with, Samsung is switching out the plastic used to hold phones, tablets, and wearables with pulp molds. The bags they are wrapped in will use eco-friendly materials, and chargers are being redesigned. The glossy plastic finish typically seen today on charging plugs will be replaced with a matte finish which removes the needs for plastic protection films.Home appliances will be shipped in new eco-friendly plastic bags, and Samsung is now committed to only using paper and fiber materials from trusted sources including the Forest Stewardship Council, Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme, and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. This will be in place by 2020.The end goal is to be using 500,000 tons of recycled plastics by 2030 and to have collected 7.5 million tons of discarded products by then, too. By doing this, not only is Samsung cutting down the impact of its packaging on the world, but it is setting the bar for other manufacturers who will hopefully put similar initiatives into action if they aren’t doing so already. 2 min read This story originally appeared on PCMag Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more
