Labour code issues flagged after fatal Canadian Pacific accident in Calgary

first_imgCALGARY — Documents show a federal investigator flagged labour code contraventions after a Canadian Pacific Railway train conductor died in a workplace accident in a Calgary rail yard last November.A Transport Canada rail safety inspector, delegated by Alberta’s labour minister, raised the issues in a letter Friday to the railway’s assistant vice-president of safety.A written directive attached to the letter, obtained by The Canadian Press, raises concerns over the company failing to identify and assess hazards to employees resulting from increased switching in the rail yard.Another directive says the railway failed to secure and maintain the accident scene, and removed, interfered with and disturbed wreckage and other things without authorization.A spokeswoman for Employment and Social Development Canada declined to comment on the specifics of the investigation because it is ongoing.Canadian Pacific did not immediately provide comment.The documents say the railway has until March 8 to inform the inspector of measures taken to make sure the failure of maintaining the accident scene doesn’t happen again.It has until March 22 to fix issues related to the safety of the rail yard. The company was also told it can request a review by the Occupational Health and Safety Tribunal Canada.Federal officials are investigating a separate Canadian Pacific accident that killed a conductor, engineer and trainee earlier this month near Field, B.C., just west of the Alberta-British Columbia boundary.A Transportation Safety Board investigator has said the westbound train was parked on a grade for two hours, with its air brakes applied, when it started rolling on its own.The train sped up to well above the limit and derailed at a curve ahead of a bridge over the Kicking Horse River, sending 99 cars and two locomotives hurtling off the tracks.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Man accused of swimming naked with sharks at aquarium expected to plead

first_imgTORONTO — A British Columbia man accused of skinny dipping in a shark tank at a Toronto aquarium is expected to plead guilty to mischief in that incident today.David Weaver, of Nelson, B.C., was arrested and charged in October of last year, four days after the alleged incident.Police allege he went to Ripley’s Aquarium in downtown Toronto on Oct. 12, bought a ticket, then stripped naked and jumped into the facility’s shark tank.A large crowd was at the aquarium that night and some in attendance took videos of the alleged incident.The videos, which attracted international attention after surfacing on social media, show a naked man swimming in the tank with sand tiger sharks, sawfish and moray eels.The man then starts to climb out of the tank before performing a back dive into the water.Officials have said the man then got out and got dressed but left behind a T-shirt and his jacket.Police have said by the time they arrived at the aquarium, the man had fled.Weaver was arrested near Thunder Bay, Ont., — hundreds of kilometres away — during a vehicle stop.Police have also alleged that earlier on Oct. 12, Weaver assaulted a man outside Medieval Times, a jousting-themed dinner theatre. A window was also allegedly broken.Weaver was charged with assault and mischief in that earlier incident, which is now being dealt with separately by the court, and will face trial on those charges in late October.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Liberals move to end Indian Act discrimination

first_imgSen. Lillian Eva Dyck says a government amendment will restore full legal status to First Nations women.The Canadian Press The federal government has decided to change course on its proposed legislation to end sex-based discrimination in the Indian Act.The government’s point man in the Senate, Sen. Peter Harder, told the upper chamber Tuesday that the government is offering to make a change that would restore full legal status to First Nations women and their descendants born prior to 1985 — a measure that moved Indigenous Sen. Lillian Dyck to tears.“Colleagues, if we pass today’s motion, something wonderful will happen,” Dyck told the chamber, her voice cracking. “Something that First Nations women have been waiting for for nearly 150 years.”The Indian Act, which dates back to 1876, remains the primary law defining the relationship between the federal government and First Nations across the country. Its original definitions focused primarily on men, denying women many of the same privileges and powers as their male counterparts when it came to their Indian status.Numerous amendments over the years have chipped away at those imbalances, but critics say the document as it currently stands continues to treat women unfairly, particularly when it comes to their Indian status and their ability to pass that status along to their descendants.Once passed, the government amendment would ensure Indigenous women finally get the same ability to transmit their registered Indian status to family members, Dyck said.“Your language, your culture, your connection to your family, your connection to your community.”Dyck recently joined forces with Sen. Sandra Lovelace-Nicholas and other advocates as part of an awareness campaign to urge the Liberal government to change the bill.Part of the outreach, supported by the Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action, included the distribution of a letter last week to women’s organizations, academics and human rights groups to drum up support for the “full and final removal” of sex discrimination in the Indian Act.The government and officials have now found an acceptable solution to a standoff between the Senate and the House of Commons, said Dyck, who urged her fellow senators to pass Harder’s proposal by the end of the week.“Let’s move it and urge the members in the (House of Commons) to concur,” she said.First Nations women can breathe a sigh of relief, Dyck added. “I know I will.”In June, the Senate unanimously passed a change to the bill designed to ensure Indigenous women and their descendants enjoy the same Indian status under the law as their male counterparts.The House of Commons, however, did not originally accept the Senate’s proposal, with the government saying it needed more time to examine the potential impacts.The previous Senate amendment would have focused on issues beyond merely the sex-based inequities, creating ambiguities and potential legal problems, Harder said.The government’s original bill would only have addressed discrimination in Indian Act registration since 1951, when a more modern registry was created. The amendment would, among other things, also address inequities created between 1869 and 1951, said the office of Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett.The Liberal government’s bill was in response to a Quebec Superior Court decision that ruled certain sections of the Indian Act related to registration status violated the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.The case was brought by Stephane Descheneaux of the Abenaki community of Odanak, about 40 kilometres northwest of Drummondville, Que.Descheneaux was unable to pass on his Indian status to his three daughters because he got it through his Indigenous grandmother, who lost her status when she married a non-Indigenous man.news@aptn.calast_img read more

Lanka prepares for UPR Audio

One of the main pledges made by Sri Lanka was to adopt and implement a national plan of action that would encapsulate all national efforts towards improvement in human rights promotion and protection in the country. This initiative, which commenced in 2008, involved all stakeholders in the process of preparation and a final text was approved by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2011. Minister Samarasinghe who oversaw the process of preparation as the then Minister for Human Rights until 2010, has been granted the responsibility by Cabinet, of coordinating and monitoring of implementation of the NHRAP. The process of implementation is nearing 1 ½ years since inception.The Minister will oversee a review of progress at the end of the year together with the approximately 50 agencies of government that are responsible for implementation. The NHRAP is of a 5 year duration and implementation of the Plan covers the period 2012 to 2016. (Colombo Gazette)Audio Playerhttp://colombogazette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/mmm-x.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. Audio Playerhttp://colombogazette.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/mmma.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume. He also said that the government hopes Pillay will present a balanced report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva next month based on her visit to Sri Lanka. The Minister said that the government will not wait till 2017 and will soon implement all what it promised at the last UPR in March. During the last UPR on Sri Lanka last year the government rejected 98 recommendations and accepted 111.The Minister briefed Pillay on implementation of Sri Lanka’s National Action Plan for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights (NHRAP) which was conceived of as part of Sri Lanka’s participation in the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process at the United Nations Human Rights Council, Geneva, in 2008. The government says it will make all preparations to ensure there is further progress on the human rights front ahead of the next Universal Periodic Review of Sri Lanka at the UN in Geneva in 2017.President Mahinda Rajapaksa;s human rights envoy, Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said this after meeting the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay today. read more

The soggy start to the week came with chilly temperatures, with a high of 8C (46F) forecast for London, 12C (54F) in Manchester and 6C (43F) in Norwich.Cricketers in the Essex v Hampshire fixture even took to the pitch wearing woolly hats in an attempt to repel the unseasonably cold weather.The North Downs between Kent and Surrey could see between 60 and 80mm of rain, compared with the April average for the area of 50mm, Met Office meteorologist Becky Mitchell said.Northern and western parts of England, as well as Scotland and Ireland, should remain mostly dry with some sunny spells, the Met Office said.Rainfall is expected to ease away from south-eastern parts on Monday night, with temperatures set to rise to the mid-teens, the Met Office added. Morning! Mia here today. Heavy rain and strong winds will persist in the southeast through the day, particularly in East Anglia and Kent, and it will feel cold too. Elsewhere should stay largely dry with bright spells. https://t.co/hQmWS6xFNb Have an amazing Monday. pic.twitter.com/80ah6LGIJz— Met Office (@metoffice) April 30, 2018 Thanet RNLI tweeted: “Trying to grab that exciting ‘storm selfie’ today with some dramatic waves? It could be risking your life!”Remember if you see an animal or a person in the water struggling dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.”  For the latest weather news, click here. “Just before 10.30am today HM Coastguard received a report that three people were in distress in the water off Ramsgate pier.”It is believed that all three people were washed off the pier by a large wave.”Margate Coastguard Rescue Team and the Ramsgate RNLI Lifeboats are on scene, alongside South East Ambulance Service and Kent Police.”All three people have been recovered from the water and are in the care of the Ambulance Service. We have no further information regarding this incident.” A man has died after three people were swept off a pier and into the sea as rain and gales battered parts of Britain on Monday. A large wave hit Ramsgate Harbour and the force washed the trio into the water, sparking a rescue operation. Kent Police said they were called to the scene in the Royal Harbour at around 11.30am on Monday to reports three people were in the water.A force spokeswoman said: “Three men were recovered from the water, but one was later pronounced dead at the scene. The other two were taken to hospital for treatment.”The death is not being treated as suspicious. Inquiries are ongoing to identify next of kin.”The South East was hit with a deluge as forecasters estimated a month’s worth of rain would fall on Monday alone. The Met Office issued yellow weather warnings, saying the conditions could cause flooding, power cuts and damage to trees and other structures.Nearly 40 “be prepared” flood alerts were active on Monday afternoon, mostly for south east England, while two “flooding is expected” warnings were in force in the north east and Anglia.Environment Agency staff are maintaining defences at at-risk spots, with concerns over rising river levels and waves in coastal areas, boss Emma Howard Boyd said. Flooding at the Crooked Billet underpass in Walthamstow, north London, caused long delays for rush-hour motorists and one lane remains closed, Transport for London (TfL) said.Pictures posted online showed fallen trees blocking roads in London, with tree surgeons disposing of one which had crashed through a wall in Ealing.Talking of this morning’s incident in Ramsgate, a Coastguard spokesman said: “HM Coastguard is currently dealing with an incident in Ramsgate where three people have fallen off the pier and into the sea. Clare Dinnis, flood duty manager for the Environment Agency, said: “Widespread heavy rain from Sunday evening and through Monday could lead to flooding from surface water and rivers in parts of south, south-east and central England. “Strong winds will also lead to large waves and spray in exposed coastal areas and we encourage people to take care in these locations.”We advise people to listen to their local radio stations and remember not to drive through flood water as just 30cm of fast-flowing water is enough to move your car.”Earlier this month, temperatures peaked at 29.1C in London on the hottest April day for 70 years ahead of the hottest ever London Marathon last Sunday.UK weather map for Monday and week ahead Among the weather-related incidents on Monday was a man who became trapped when a tree fell on to his car in Herne Bay, Kent.Firefighters had to cut the roof off the vehicle before the man was seen by medical staff, Kent Fire and Rescue Service said. Tomorrow’s set to be a wet one. Heavy rain is expected through till Monday which could lead to some #flooding.

They’d demanded the same 40 per cent of offices they’d demanded in Cabinet appointments before the 2015 General Elections, when they promised to bring their 11 per cent support into the APNU/AFC coalition platform. The PNC said, “No way Jose!!”, or more pointedly, “Go show us what you have, losers!!”Point of the matter is, the AFC never did bring in their promised 11 per cent from the Indian community that would’ve traditionally gone to the PPP. So when they were given the promised 40 per cent in the Cabinet, hard core PNCites were livid. Never mind AFC Cabinet Ministers – being creatures of the President – were made so ineffectual they might as well have been dog catchers!! Like, of course, the man who so lusted to be “Prime Minister”, he betrayed all!! All he got was “Larwah” – but he seems to be liking it. Go figure!!Anyhow, at an event dubbed “Fit and Proppa”, to rally their candidates for the LGE, even the ones who’d evidently been nominated by Guyanese “walking dead”! – AFC’s Kathy Hughes — claimed bitterly they were the ones who’d put the PNC into office. The not-so-subtle implicit subtext, of course, what that the PNC was ungrateful for throwing them out on their own, and not keeping them on its coattails!!But even their “Fit and Proppa” label shows how disconnected the elitist AFC is from the grassroots – which is where the LGE is fought. No grassroots voter would be caught dead saying “Fit and Proppa” – they’d be run out of their village with the derisive hoots greeting their pretentious pronunciation of “fit an’ prappa”!! Truth is, the AFC has become the “Dead Meat” that Ramjattan predicted before they sold their souls to the PNC for thirty pieces of silver. And dead meat, by definition, has to be “unfit and imprappa”!!Your Eyewitness doesn’t have to wonder what the PNC will do with the AFC after the LGE reveals they’ve got no supporters! They’ll demand every leader from the AFC – starting with Nagamootoo and Ramjattan – swear fealty to the PNC in general, and Granger in particular, by kissing his ring and, of course, his posterior!! If, when there were no objective grounds for rejecting their 11 per cent pretentions, the AFC accepted being humiliated by the PNC, imagine the treatment they’ll accept when they’re exposed as the fakes they are!!Especially when the PNC’s hand is strengthened with the new corps of soup drinkers they’re cultivating during the LGE nomination process!!It’ll be a new Larwah time!!…Town ClerkNo Guyanese — of whatever political persuasion — can be surprised at the revelations from the CoI into the actions of Town Clerk Royston King. Not if they’re honest and not sleeping during the last four years. King’s ascension to the position had been born out of illegalities, which naturally defined his modus operandi.He’d been appointed Town Clerk in 2014 by then Mayor Hamilton Green, after serving as his PRO – even as Carol Sooba occupied that position. Even after the Court ruled King’s appointment illegal, Green backed him and had vendors harass Sooba.From the moment the Government changed and Bulkan removed Sooba – violating the very principle Green had challenged Sooba’s appointment over – and appointing King, in July 2015, King naturally concluded he could do whatever he wanted. He was blessed from “on high”.The 2016 LGE strengthened his hand, when his old compadre and hard core PNC insider Patricia Chase-Greene became Mayor. Along with past PNC General Secretary Oscar Clarke, they were now given the licence by the PNC to do whatever they wanted with the City’s purse – to take care of the largest PNC base, of course. But King and Chase-Greene had other plans – personal plans.The question is why Patricia Chase-Greene’s not also under investigation?…for GECOM ChairGECOM’s Chair James Patterson warned, “Mischief is afoot”. Yes….from the moment he was appointed by Granger!! read more

Google blocked 23 billion bad ads in 2018

first_img Comment Tech Industry Advertising Google Share your voice 1 Google’s campus in Mountain View, California Stephen Shankland/CNET Google blocked 2.3 billion ads in 2018, part of its effort to stop scams, abuse, malware and other problems that can tarnish the online advertising industry on which the internet giant depends.That’s a big number, but it’s smaller than last year, when Google blocked 3.2 billion bad ads. Google enforcement ramped up another dimension, though, by blocking those responsible for those ads. Specifically, it blocked nearly 1 million advertiser accounts and 734,000 publishers and app developers. That’s about double the number as last year, Scott Spencer, Google’s director of sustainable ads, said in a blog post.”Sustainable ads” may sound weird, but it’s an important idea. Bad ads degrade the technology that’s the financial lifeblood not only for Google but also for countless websites and apps that rely on Google to place those ads.Ads are already in enough trouble — with browsers including Safari, Firefox, Brave and even Google’s own Chrome getting increasingly assertive about reining in their abuses. Millions of us already install ad blockers.Google also launched 31 policies to ban categories of ads in 2018. That affected various abusive ads related to “third-party tech support, ticket resellers, cryptocurrency and local services such as garage door repairmen, bail bonds and addiction treatment facilities,” Spencer said.Google used a combination of human reviewers and artificial intelligence to spot sources of bad ads.”When we take action at the account level, it helps to address the root cause of bad ads and better protect our users,” Spencer said.Google places ads in apps and on websites, and there, it took action to cut off publishers and developers’ revenue. Google “removed ads completely from nearly 1.5 million apps [and] nearly 28 million pages that violated our publisher policies,” Spencer said. Tagslast_img read more

Trump says he will not impose uranium quotas

first_imgWashington, Jul 14: President Donald Trump says he will not impose quotas on importing uranium, backing away from a possible trade confrontation and breaking with a Commerce Department assessment that America’s use of foreign uranium raises national security concerns. The decision is unusual for Trump, who has pointed to national security concerns in calling for restrictions on foreign metal and autos in trade negotiations. It’s also drawing rare criticism from Republicans in energy-rich states. Uranium is a vital component for the U.S. nuclear arsenal, submarines and power plants, which prompted a monthslong Commerce Department investigation into whether such materials fall under the national security umbrella. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has said that just 5 percent of the uranium the US needs for military and electricity generation comes from domestic production. Russia, China and other countries supply the rest. In a statement issued late Friday, Trump said Ross’s findings about national security”raise significant concerns. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us ” Yet the president opted against quotas as advocated by the domestic uranium industry, which would limit imports to guarantee that US miners supply 25 percent of uranium for domestic use. Trump instead announced he was going to order a working group to use 90 days to make recommendations to increase domestic uranium production. Two Colorado-based uranium mining companies — Energy Fuels Inc. and Ur-Energy Inc. — petitioned the Commerce Department in January 2018 to impose the 25 percent requirement under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act. The companies said relying on imports poses a “serious threat to our national defense and energy security.” Much of the uranium mined in the US comes from Wyoming. “The decision by the Trump administration is a missed opportunity to protect America’s uranium producers,” said Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., who denounced using foreign materials. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us “America should not rely on Vladimir Putin and his satellites to supply our uranium. It’s dangerous and unacceptable.” Environmentalists saw the mining companies’ petition as part of an effort to expand mining across the US. They also were worried about the area outside the boundary of Grand Canyon National Park, where an Obama-era decision placed roughly 1 million acres off limits to new mining claims for a 20-year period. “We’re obviously relieved there’s not a quota, but we’re not out of the woods yet,” said Amber Reimondo, energy program director for the Flagstaff, Arizona-based environmental group the Grand Canyon Trust. “There’s clearly some concern with this working group that the president has ordered. And, depending on what comes out of that, it seems likely that there could be additional shortcuts to environmental safeguards.” Last month, the Trump administration designated nearly three dozen minerals, including uranium, as critical. Advertise With Us Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said at the time the department would work “expeditiously” to streamline the permitting process for mining to locate domestic supplies of minerals. Energy Fuels has been waiting for uranium prices to rise to restart operations at its Canyon Mine near the Grand Canyon’s South Rim entrance. In a statement, the energy companies said they “commend” Trump for recognizing that the nuclear industry was “under siege” and for establishing the working group. The decision was a rare moment in which the Trump administration did not use the powers of the government to give American companies a trade advantage over international competition. The administration had previously levied tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum, leading to retaliatory tariffs from Canada, Mexico, China and Europe.last_img read more

They can have two SIMs and also be expand the mobile’s storage up to 128GB.The notable aspect of the new Redmi Go is it runs Google’s special Android Oreo 8.1 Go edition.

Xiaomi Redmi Go is the company’s most affordable phone in India to date.Xiaomi India Press KitEarlier in the week, I witnessed an online rant from some fellow citizen on Twitter complaining that 1GB RAM, which the Redmi Go comes with, will not be enough for a phone to work smoothly and he wished the company should have incorporated 2GB RAM.But, in my opinion, this a false apprehension among the public. Many lose sight of the fact the Redmi Go is running Google’s official Android Go edition, which is specially developed to run phones with bare minimum hardware even with 512MB RAM and yet work flawlessly.Android Go edition is fully optimised so that the phone consumes less power and it is very light in size but does not compromise in terms of performance.It can also be noted that the Android team has improvised the preinstalled Google apps (for example Files Go, Google Go, Maps Go and YouTube Go, among others) to take up 50% less space, making sure that low-end smartphone users get more space for music, apps, photos and other activities.Rest assured, the Redmi Go will not disappoint the consumer, which I believe will appeal to those planning to buy their first-ever smartphone.For the uninitiated, the Redmi Go sports a 5.0-inch HD screen and comes with sturdy polycarbonate shell on the back.

News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Related Content August 5, 2015 — Physicians at Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center (SWDIC) in Dallas are now able to provide high-definition (HD) computed tomography (CT) images and lower radiation doses thanks to the recent arrival of a new CT system. Patients are already benefiting from the advanced technology of GE Healthcare’s Revolution GSI.“The decision to acquire these scanners was an easy one,” said Clint Hamilton, M.D. “This technology will allow us to continue to reduce radiation dose to our patients, and maintain our high image quality. It will increase our patient workflow and help reduce patient wait times. The dual energy capability can also help us to scan individual patients fewer times.”Clinicians at SWDIC are also seeing benefits for patients with implants. “Hardware implants are a common finding with current spine surgery practices,” said David Kilgore, radiologist at SWDIC. “The dual energy feature has made a significant impact on reducing metal artifacts, therefore improving image quality and enabling a more confident diagnosis.”Today, more than 81 million CT scans are done in the United States per year, providing tremendous clinical value in helping physicians reach a fast diagnosis across a wide range of applications. CT is a non-invasive and expedient way to look inside the body at organs, soft tissues, vascular structures and bones using X-rays to generate high-resolution images of the body. It does this by rotating an X-ray source and detector around the patient as the patient is moved through the device.Equipped with GE Healthcare’s proprietary Gemstone detector and ASiR (Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction) technology, physicians at Southwest Diagnostic Imaging Center will be able to provide accurate CT scans at a reduced radiation dose. Furthermore, clinicians can help reduce patient anxiety as:GE Healthcare’s Xtream display allows the CT staff to spend more time with the patient and less time outside of the scan room;Faster scanning speeds allow for shorter exam times.Additionally, Revolution GSI has a fast energy switching technology called Gemstone Spectral Imaging (GSI) that enables data sampling rates at different energies as fast as 0.25msec. This enables SWDIC’s physicians to deliver more personalize care for each patient. Some of the benefits may include:Characterization of pathology;Better contrast enhancement, allowing physicians to optimize contrast for each patient; andReductions in traditional CT image artifacts, which sometimes led to sub- optimal exams for physicians to read.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Mahadevappa Mahesh discusses trends in medical physics at the 2019 AAPM meetingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 4:01Loaded: 4.04%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -4:01 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Maranello 23rd August 2011 – Reported by Elite Tr

first_imgMaranello, 23rd August 2011 – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineThe new 458 Spider joins the 458 Italia, widening the range of Ferrari’s mid-rear engined V8s and offering the same uncompromising technological solutions, handling and performance in a refined open-top configuration. It is equipped with a Ferrari patented, fully retractable hard top, a world first for a sports car with this lay-out.The 458 Spider is powered by Ferrari’s naturally-aspirated, direct-injection 4.5 liter V8 which was nominated as the 2011 International Engine of the Year for its engineering excellence in terms of drivability, performance, economy and refinement. The power is transferred to the road by Ferrari’s class-leading dual-clutch F1 paddle-shift transmission through the sophisticated E-Diff, itself integrated with the F1-Trac traction control and high-performance ABS for maximum handling dynamics.Certain of the car’s features, such as its accelerator pedal mapping and the damping of the multilink suspension, have been calibrated to guarantee maximum sportiness and absolute driving pleasure with the top down, in line with Maranello’s exclusive spider tradition. Even the engine soundtrack has been honed to ensure that the car’s occupants are completely captivated by the drop-top driving experience.Entirely in aluminum, the hard-top solution adopted for the 458 Spider offers a number of advantages over the traditional folding soft-top, including a reduction of 25 kg in weight and a deployment time of just 14 seconds. Fully integrated into the styling of the car, the hard-top was engineered to fit neatly ahead of the engine bay without compromising aerodynamics or the performance of the car. The small space needed to house the roof enables the designers to include a generous rear bench for luggage behind the seats.The rear of the car is characterized by innovative forms with the buttresses designed to optimize the flow of air to the engine intakes and the clutch and gearbox oil radiators. For maximum comfort whilst driving top down the 458 Spider features a generously sized adjustable electric wind stop. The design was perfected to slow and diffuse the air in the cockpit, enabling normal conversation to be held even at speeds over 200 km/h. New technical solutions adopted for the chassis guarantee identical levels of structural rigidity with the roof up or down. The result is a car that is truly exciting to drive, blending extreme performance with the responsiveness that has always characterized Ferrari’s open-top berlinettas.www.ferrari.comlast_img read more

A Senate vote on a federal bill is expected next week. If that passes, the House has until the end of the year to vote on it.last_img read more
