2020 VW Golf slated for techrich October debut report says

Now, a new report points to a later debut, but based on what the Golf will carry with it, the wait sounds worth it.The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf is currently scheduled to make its formal debut in October, Automotive News Europe reported Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter. There are, according to ANE, two reasons for this: First, Volkswagen wants the ID to steal the spotlight at the show, as it’s a pretty important vehicle for the automaker; also, as earlier reports noted, VW did have some software setbacks to work through.But the Golf that shows itself to the world in October will be reportedly worth the weight. ANE’s report says that the eighth generation is positioning itself as “the benchmark for connectivity.” Standard features will allegedly include lane-keep assist, LED headlights and a massive digital cockpit in addition to a center-console screen no smaller than 8.25 inches.In addition to all that kit, most of which is currently relegated to more expensive Golf trims, there’s some interesting digital tech in there. The vehicle will reportedly be capable of vehicle-to-x communication, likely using the DSRC standard (802.11p) that the automaker has championed in the past. The new Golf should also carry a digital key option, which allows the vehicle to be opened using a phone instead of a key, although it’s unclear if this technology will rely on near-field communication like Hyundai’s, or if it will use Bluetooth Low Energy like the Tesla Model 3.The 2020 VW Golf will enter production in Wolfsburg, Germany, in the third quarter of 2019, the report says. Europe will be first to take a crack at the new hatchback; as with generations past, it’ll take about a year or so for the new Golf to make its way to the US.

India vs New Zealand World Cup match under threat forecast remains bleak

first_imgThe England weather, that notorious weather has arrived and just as the World Cup was beginning to heat up, it has started acting as a damp squib. Two matches have already been called off, there have been interventions, there have been delays and now there is a bleak forecast staring in the face of the administrators.The match between West Indies and South Africa could barely last eight overs, the umpires called off the match, incessant rains could well force the fixture between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to be called off and the forecast for the entire week is absolutely dour.Heavy rain threatens to play spoilsport when India face New Zealand in their next World Cup game at Trent Bridge on Thursday. However, as per weather forecast, the rain is likely to subside by lunchtime on Thursday which means at least a curtailed game remains a possibility.There have been showers across United Kingdom for the past two days and as per the local Met department, it will not subside and they have also issued a warning for the residents.’Yellow warning for rain has been issued’ Virat KohliGetty Images”A Yellow Warning for rain is in force in the Nottingham area for most of this week,” local website ‘Nottingham post’ reported.The Met office’s warning on its website covered a large area of England, including Birmingham, Peterborough and Newcastle.”There is a chance that heavy prolonged rain could lead to localised flooding and disruption to transport,” the report further said.However, the same report also mentions that the rain might subside at around lunchtime on Thursday which increases the hopes of a curtailed match between India and New Zealand.”That lighter rain is expected to finally come to an end at about lunchtime on Thursday. The maximum temperatures will be around 13 degrees Celsius and minimum overnight temperatures will be around 10 or 11 degrees Celsius,” the website reported.India have got off to a great start as Virat Kohli’s side got the better of South Africa and Australia in the first two games. However, their mood will be dampened as opener Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out for a minimum of three weeks owing to a thumb injury.They will take on New Zealand on Thursday, followed by the big clash against Pakistan on Sunday. If the weather department is to be believed, both these matches could possibly see interventions by rain and this could have an effect on the points table.last_img read more

GST impact subdued business activity push Nifty below 9900 Sensex drops around

first_imgA man looks at a screen across the road on the facade of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) building in Mumbai May 16, 2014.Reuters fileThe Indian equity market is witnessing a mild downturn, with the benchmark index declining for the fifth straight day to a near four-week low.The BSE Sensex on Monday tanked 417 points intraday before closing at 31,626.63, down 296 points. On the other hand, NSE Nifty 50 Index slipped 91 percent or 0.92 percent to 9,872.60.The NSE Nifty Bank index fell for the fifth day in a row and hit a 1-month low on Monday, declining as much as 1.45 percent to touch 24,015 points.The corrections have been triggered by a series of factors such as GST impact on domestic market, subdued consumer spending, weak global cues, continues FPI outflows, muted growth forecast and because of growing global uncertainties.”Clearly both the initiatives (GST and demonetisation) had a more severe impact than what we have imagined. The negative impact is more in wholesale businesses in rural areas along with small and medium-sized industries. And, this is worrying,” Harsh Mariwala chairman of Marico told BloombergQuint.Recently, R Shankar Raman, chief financial officer (CFO) of Larsen and Toubro (L&T), opined that the government’s preparedness for rolling out tax reforms was nowhere close to what was claimed and this found reflection in the slipping GDP growth numbers.In an interview with Mint last week, Raman said, “…this pain is going to continue for another six to nine months, and consequently, working capital is going to get blocked. In fact, I don’t see the private sector coming back for the next couple of years.”On the global front, uncertainties keep putting pressure on emerging stock markets. The US Fed’s hawkish monetary policy stance and decision to begin its balance-sheet reduction programme from October 2017, a sharp depreciation in the rupee over the past two weeks and increasing tensions in the Korean peninsula are pushing investors away from the market.Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) have been net sellers form the past two months. As on September 25, they pulled Rs 4,511 crore out of the Indian equity market and in August they pulled out a whopping Rs 12,770 crore, according to NSDL data.last_img read more

VoterRegistration Snafu Sows Confusion in Maryland Primary

first_imgBy The Associated PressA major voter-registration snafu was sowing confusion in an important primary June 26 as officials prepared for as many as 80,000 voters to cast provisional ballots that won’t be counted until next week.State officials were still assessing the fallout from a computer error at the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration.Former NAACP President Ben Jealous and Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker lead a crowded Democratic gubernatorial primary field to win a nomination to face popular Republican Gov. Larry Hogan in the fall. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)The problem relates to changes voters made in address and party affiliation on the administration’s website or self-service kiosks, information that failed to be sent to the state elections board.“As far as we know it was a failure of MVA to transfer data to us. That is what they are telling us,” said Nikki Charlson, the state elections deputy administrator. “They told us it was a computer-programming error that failed to transfer that subset of data.”She added that elections officials had not heard of any problems relating to the programing error during the first several hours of voting on Tuesday.“We haven’t heard of any great push for provisionals today,” Charlson said.The error comes in a big election year for Maryland. Voters were choosing candidates for all 188 state legislative seats in Tuesday’s primary, as well as the Democratic nominee for governor in a crowded primary. Polls have shown it to be a close contest between former NAACP President Ben Jealous and Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan is unchallenged in the GOP primary.“Our administration is obviously incredibly disappointed that this happened,” said Amelia Chasse, Hogan’s spokeswoman. “What matters most is that every eligible voter will be able to vote, and every vote will be counted. The governor has directed the auditor for the Maryland Department of Transportation to conduct a comprehensive review of the situation and ordered MVA leadership to make themselves available for any legislative hearings.”The problem was discovered Friday when a state board of elections employee who changed her address realized she never received a voter notification card, said state elections administrator Linda Lamone.“And that’s why I picked up the phone and called the Motor Vehicle Administration and said, ‘What’s going on here? Why didn’t she get this notification card, and then we checked our database and it hadn’t been changed,” Lamone said Tuesday.Asked how things were going Tuesday, Lamone said, “so far so good.”State officials first said Saturday night that about 18,760 people were affected. On Sunday, state Sen. Joan Carter Conway said the Senate committee she chairs would hold a hearing. After Monday’s announcement, Conway and Del. Anne Kaiser, who chairs the House Ways and Means Committee, called for MVA Administrator Christine Nizer’s resignation.Affected voters are encouraged to verify their registration information using the state elections board’s voter look-up website. If the website doesn’t show the voter’s current address, a voter can use the board’s polling place locator to find the right voting location for the voter’s new address. Then, the voter can use the provisional voting process to cast a ballot on Tuesday.Provisional ballots won’t be counted until July 5.Lamone, the state elections administrator, said the timing was set long ago in regulations.“You need the time. You have to research every one of the provisionals,” she said.last_img read more
