Buick cracks top-three in Consumer Reports’ latest reliability survey

first_imgLexus, Porsche, Buick are J.D. Power’s most dependable brandsBy contrast, Honda fell in this year’s survey partly because of its 2016 Civic small car, which has two new engines, a new steel underbody and a new continuously variable transmission. Cue the problems: Shortly after the Civic went on sale, it was recalled for engine failure. Consumer Reports said Civic customers also have reported problems with the car’s infotainment system.“It’s the choice of making such a big change,” Fisher told the Associated Press. “They pay the penalty for trying to get it all right.”Fisher said GM has been improving its cars and small SUVs for several years now. The Chevrolet Cruze was the top-performing small car in the survey, while the Chevrolet Trax was the top-performing small SUV.But the company continues to struggle with pickups and larger truck-based SUVs, which gets low marks for steering and suspension issues; the Cadillac Escalade large SUV is the worst performing vehicle in the magazine’s survey due to its combination of transmission problems and its difficult-to-use infotainment system. Buick has no truck-based vehicles.Tesla — which was added to this year’s survey because the magazine had enough responses from owners — suffered multiple problems with its new Model X SUV, including water leaks and issues with climate control.Fisher said Tesla should perform better than average, since electric cars have fewer mechanical parts than gasoline-powered cars. But it gets tripped up by flashy features like the Model X’s glitch-prone falcon-wing doors. Lexus, Toyota and Buick are the most reliable brands in Consumer Reports’ latest survey, a reward for their conservative approach to new technology.It’s the fourth straight year that Lexus came in first and Toyota came in second. Two of their hybrids — the Toyota Prius and the Lexus CT 200H — were named the most reliable vehicles. But Buick — General Motors’ near-luxury marque — is the first domestic brand to crack the top three since the magazine began tracking vehicle reliability in the early 1980s.Audi and Kia rounded out the top five brands. Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and Ram — all owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles — were the worst performers. Tesla also fared poorly. advertisement Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 2017 Buick Encore “The problem with Tesla has always been the gimmicks,” he said.– Trending in Canada The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. The magazine released its annual reliability survey this week. It’s closely watched by the industry, since many buyers look to the magazine for recommendations.Consumer Reports predicts the reliability of 2017 model-year brands and individual vehicles based on survey responses from its subscribers. The magazine collected subscribers’ comments on vehicles they own from the 2000 to 2017 model years. Around 500,000 subscribers responded to this year’s survey.Jake Fisher, Consumer Reports’ director of automotive testing, said the best performers have something in common: They tend to add new technology slowly and bit-by-bit, rather than all at once. When Lexus introduced its new 2016 RX crossover, for example, it used an older engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission that had already been used other Lexus vehicles.And when Buick introduced the Encore small SUV in the U.S. in 2012, it was built on a small-car platform used in prior vehicles and had a six-speed transmission, rather than the eight- and nine-speeds coming into vogue.RELATEDcenter_img PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?

GPS Satellite Receivers Found To Be New Tool For Earthquake Studies

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: May 13, 2003 A serendipitous discovery by a University of Colorado at Boulder-led team has shown for the first time that satellite signals from the Global Positioning System are a valuable new tool for studying earthquakes. CU-Boulder Associate Professor Kristine Larson of aerospace engineering sciences said seismic waves from a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Alaska’s Denali National Park in November 2002 were detected using Global Positioning Satellite, or GPS, receivers as far away as 2,350 miles from the event. The quake also was picked up by scores of GPS receivers in Canada and the United States. GPS is a constellation of satellites originally designed by the U.S. military to provide precise positions of ships, tanks, airplanes, other military equipment and even people. Currently there are 27 GPS satellites orbiting Earth at roughly 12,500 miles above the planet. “This is the first time GPS has been used to track seismic waves,” Larson said. “The signals were large enough to be recorded by GPS receivers as far away as Colorado Springs, Colorado.” A paper on the subject will be published electronically by Science magazine on Science Express May 15. In addition to Larson, co-authors include Paul Bodin from the University of Memphis and Joan Gomberg from the U.S. Geological Survey’s Memphis office. “The nice thing about GPS is it’s great versatility,” said Larson. “In this study we were able to track seismic waves that traveled from Alaska through Canada to Washington, Montana and Colorado.” GPS also has a number of other scientific uses, like measuring ice sheet movements, the inflation of magma under volcanoes and plate tectonics, Larson said. More practical uses of GPS include navigating aircraft, boats and cars, as well as helping lost hikers find their way to safety. GPS users — like hikers, boaters and car drivers — decide how frequently their position determination is needed. For measuring seismic waves from Denali, Larson’s team used GPS receivers that were set to measure positions once each second, or 1 Hertz. Ordinarily, she said, scientists study earthquakes with seismometers, but these often are set for a particular sensitivity range. Because the earthquake in Alaska was so big, however, many seismometers in the United States and Canada were not able to measure it. “But GPS researchers love very big signals,” Larson said. “The bigger the better for us.” The Denali quake ruptured almost 200 miles, causing surface displacements of more than 25 feet in some places, she said. “This is permanent deformation. The deformations we observed with GPS in the lower 48 states also were large, but were caused by the seismic waves and did not cause permanent displacement.” For a sense of how big the seismic waves were, a GPS receiver in eastern Washington moved nine inches horizontally in just 10 seconds, even though it was 1,500 miles from the Denali earthquake. There are many continuously operating GPS receivers in the United States, she said, and scientists use them primarily to monitor small motions on faults. Roughly 250 GPS receivers are operating in Los Angeles County, for example, installed in response to the 6.7 magnitude Northridge earthquake in 1994. The National Science Foundation recently funded a research project known as Earthscope to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent, Larson said. Earthscope also is designed to decipher what causes earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and as part of that effort, Earthscope engineers will soon be installing 800 additional GPS receivers in the western United States.last_img read more

$6 Million Set Aside for Crime Victimisation Programme

first_imgRelated$6 Million Set Aside for Crime Victimisation Programme FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail A sum of $6 million has been earmarked in the 2012-2013 Estimates of Expenditure, now before the House of Representatives, for the Jamaica National Crime Victimisation Survey. The project is being implemented by the Ministry of National Security, with support funding from the United Kingdom Department of International Development (DFID). Objectives under the programme, which is scheduled to run from June 2012 to March 2013, include: to contribute to the detailed and accurate analysis of major crime trends in Jamaica; and the provision of data on the type and incidence of crimes not reported to the police. It also aims to provide uniform data on specific types of crime, which will form the basis for future comparisons at the community, national and international levels; develop detailed information on criminal victimisation, including demographic data on victims; and to generate important comparative data on the outcome of targeted social interventions in specific communities. For this financial year, the government hopes to complete the first statistical consultancy for the project, which will be completed by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN); submit sample design and finalisation of questionnaire, end field work report, final technical report and datasets; complete production of an ‘inception report’ that provides details about the survey methodology prior to the commencement of fieldwork; and draft final report and submission. Physical achievements up to June 2012 include the draft of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by the DFID on April 16.

Holmes back in winner’s circle with Wells Fargo win

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. – More than two years after going through brain surgery, J.B. Holmes is a winner again on the PGA Tour. Holmes made it harder than he needed to on the final hole at Quail Hollow until rapping in a 3-foot bogey putt for a 1-under 71 and a one-shot victory over Jim Furyk in the Wells Fargo Championship. Furyk finished his Sunday-best 65 some two hours earlier. Jason Bohn had the best chance to catch Holmes. He was one shot behind when he pulled a 4-iron into the water on the par-3 17th, making double bogey. Phil Mickelson never had a chance, missing four putts from the 4-foot range and closing with a 76 to finish out of the top 10. The victory capped a remarkable turnaround for Holmes, who won for the third time in his career. He was diagnosed in 2011 with structural defects in the cerebellum known as Chiara malformations, and he had surgery twice – once to remove a piece of his skull that he still keeps at home, another because of an allergic reaction to the adhesive on the titanium plate at the base of his skull. Then, he injured his elbow by hitting too many balls in an attempt to return from the brain surgery. He didn’t bother having surgery on his elbow until last year, when he was sidelined by a broken ankle and couldn’t play, anyway. Wells Fargo Championship: Articles, photos and videos Only last week, Holmes earned enough money to keep his card for the rest of the year from a medical extension. Now, he’s headed to The Players Championship next week for the richest prize in golf, and more importantly, secured a spot in the PGA Championship this summer in his native Kentucky. ”It’s been a long journey for me,” Holmes said. ”I’ve had some ups and downs. It’s a great feeling to be out there and to get one done.” His only other victories were in the Phoenix Open in 2006 and 2008. Holmes made enough key putts to allow for some mistakes at the end. He ran off three birdies in a four-hole stretch around the turn, including a 30-footer on No. 11 that opened up a two-shot lead. He gouged a fairway metal out of the rough on the par-5 15th to set up a 6-foot birdie putt that stretched his lead to three shots. Perhaps the biggest putt of all was an 8-foot par save on the 17th hole. That kept his lead at two shots, and he needed it. Instead of playing an iron off the tee, he drove into the right rough, came up well short of the green and chipped weakly to 45 feet. Furyk was watching on TV in the locker room when Holmes knocked in the bogey putt to finish at 14-under 274. Martin Flores, in his first time playing in the last group, fell too far back with a three-putt bogey on the 13th. He made bogey on the 18th for a 72 and was third, the best finish of his PGA Tour career. Bohn also bogeyed the 18th for a 70 to finish fourth. Bohn received a bad time on the 16th hole – one more would have been a one-shot penalty – and said he let it get to him. ”I didn’t feel comfortable with the wind starting to gust up a little bit, and I went ahead and hit it anyhow in a situation that I probably would have backed off in,” Bohn said. ”So I’m more disappointed in myself and the way that I handled that than the golf shots that I hit.” Still, the biggest disappointment might have been Mickelson. He was in great shape going into the final round, two shots out of the lead, and the two players ahead of him stalled at the start. Instead, Mickelson matched his highest final round on the PGA Tour since The Barclays in 2012. And it was an old nemesis – short putting – that did him in. Mickelson three-putted from 15 feet on No. 8. He missed a 3-foot par putt on the 11th, a 4-foot birdie putt on the 14th and four-putted from 30 feet on the 16th. ”I had two great rounds and I had two pathetic rounds this week,” Mickelson said. ”The greens putted perfectly, even though I didn’t.” The challenge came from three others, with a series of eagles that injected some drama into Quail Hollow, if only briefly. Furyk chipped in for eagle from off the 15th green and then closed with three straight pars for a 65 to sit in the clubhouse at 13-under 275. Bohn holed out a sand wedge from 95 yards on the par-5 10th hole that disappeared into the cup on the third bounce. He also chipped in for birdie on No. 12. Flores chipped in for eagle from short of the 10th green that allowed him to tie for the lead, but only until Holmes made a short birdie putt of his own on No. 10. Holmes ran in the long birdie putt on the next hole for a two-shot lead, and he stayed in control the rest of the way.last_img read more

Stephen Meyer Debunks the “God of the Gaps” Objection

first_img“A Summary of the Evidence for Intelligent Design”: The Study Guide Share Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Email Print Google+ Linkedin Twitter Share Intelligent Design Stephen Meyer Debunks the “God of the Gaps” ObjectionDavid [email protected]_klinghofferDecember 18, 2017, 12:28 PM A vacuous yet often heard objection to intelligent design decries ID as a “God of the gaps” argument. Here, Stephen Meyer requires less than three minutes to show that the complaint rests on a failure to understand a basic feature of the theory of ID.Yet the point comes up again and again. The group BioLogos, for one, in promoting theistic evolution, starts this way in answer to what they call a “common question,” “Are gaps in scientific knowledge evidence for God?”God-of-the-gaps arguments use gaps in scientific explanation as indicators, or even proof, of God’s action and therefore of God’s existence. Such arguments propose divine acts in place of natural, scientific causes for phenomena that science cannot yet explain. The assumption is that if science cannot explain how something happened, then God must be the explanation. But the danger of using a God-of-the-gaps argument for the action or existence of God is that it lacks the foresight of future scientific discoveries. With the continuing advancement of science, God-of-the-gaps explanations often get replaced by natural mechanisms. Therefore, when such arguments are used as apologetic tools, scientific research can unnecessarily be placed at odds with belief in God.1 The recent Intelligent Design (ID) movement highlights this problem. [Emphasis added.]No, that is wrong, as Meyer explains. It’s a topic elaborated, among many others, in the vast yet sprightly new volume, Theistic Evolution: A Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique, of which Dr. Meyer served as one of the editors.May I add a further observation? If you don’t mind, ID is not an “apologetic tool,” as BioLogos puts it. It’s not a “tool” at all, except in the scientific sense, as a heuristic, a methodology for getting at the truth about life and about nature. It’s not a “tool” to use on people, to keep the kids from getting rowdy and disbelieving what their teacher says in class. This misunderstanding is common to theistic and atheistic evolutionists: they think too much in terms of winning recruits or keeping troops in line, rather than finding out what’s true, wherever the quest may take you.Please, refrain from using a “tool” on me. I don’t care for that approach in a religious or a scientific context, and I can’t help but think many others, of whatever spiritual community or of none, must likewise find it patronizing.It’s the difference between being treated as a child, or treated as an adult. That may be ID’s greatest strength — it speaks to us as adults — and one of the biggest turnoffs of theistic evolution.

Grilled Tenderloin of Beef with Corn Chanterelles and Chervil

first_img Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. When grilling this dish, I developed one mission in mind – use the whole filet tenderloin rather than individual filet mignon steaks. The results are far more rewarding in flavors when you grill the entire tenderloin. In fact, this method is actually easier, and the results are perfection. And your dinner guests will be impressed when you carve the filet mignon in front of them. Sweet corn and chanterelles with a touch of sage and white truffle is a fantastic combination for this late summer dish. The golden brown mushrooms are sautéed in brown butter with fresh corn. Their flavors mingle with the sage, providing a touch of fall. Splash in a few drops of white truffle oil to create an intense sauce for this versatile side dish. Yield: 6 to 8 servings Tenderloin and Potatoes 2 pounds small new potatoes, approximately 2 inches in diameter1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil1 whole tenderloin (ask your butcher to trim the fat and side chain off) approximately 4 pounds of tenderloin once butcheredSea salt6 cloves of garlic, crushedFresh rosemaryThymeCracked peppercornPepper After the grill is nice and hot, lightly oil the grill grate. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with 3 tablespoons of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Lay potatoes on the grill grate, or arrange them in a single layer in a mesh grill basket. Grill for 20 to 25 minutes turning frequently. One hour prior to grilling the tenderloin, marinate the fillet in a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil combined with six cloves of crushed garlic, fresh rosemary, thyme, cracked peppercorn and sea salt. Grill the tenderloin, turning often, until the meat develops a nice crust on the outside. Do not use your lid from the grill, or it will burn the meat. For rare results, grill meat for 20 to 25 minutes. The internal temperature should read 126 degrees before resting. For medium-rare results, the approximate cooking time is 30 to 35 minutes with an internal temperature of 130 degrees before resting. Allow the tenderloin to rest for 15 minutes to ensure its juices will flow through the meat, creating the most robust flavors. Corn and Chanterelles 3 tablespoon unsalted butter1 1/2 pounds chanterelles, cleaned and stemmed2 tablespoons shallots, minced2 tablespoons white truffle oil1 tablespoon fresh sage, minced1 cup of fresh corn kernels, preferably off the cobCoarse sea salt and white pepper While the tenderloin and potatoes are cooking, heat butter over a medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add chanterelles. Sauté for a few minutes. Add shallots and garlic until mushrooms turn golden brown. Add corn. Sauté for a few minutes. Finish with truffle oil and sea salt /white pepper. Cover to keep warm. Assembly: 2 tablespoons fresh chervil, chopped1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped If necessary, reheat the corn and chanterelles. Add chervil and chives. Stir to combine. Carve tenderloin into 3/4-inch slices, and lay into center of the platter. Surround with grilled potatoes on one side and corn and chanterelles on the other side. I encourage you to invite your friends over for this savory dish. Please send me your comments at [email protected] Bon Appétit! last_img read more
