The retail sector came in second for job growth, followed by aerospace. About 5,000 of the jobs were filled by veterans, according to the Alliance. Manufacturing jobs were boosted by two NASA contracts worth more than $2billion that Pratt Whitney has to repair and maintain shuttle engines. Economist Jack Kyser, chief economist at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp., says the estimate is reasonable. “Remember the three largest industries in L.A. County are poorly reported by all the government agencies,” Kyser said, referring to international trade, tourism and Hollywood sectors. More than 25,000 jobs were added to the economic engine of the San Fernando Valley in 2007, according to the Economic Alliance. About 175,000 jobs have been created in the Valley in the past seven years. “The No. 1 complaint and concern that our business community expresses to us is that they cannot find qualified workers to fill their available positions,” said Bruce Ackerman, president and CEO of the Economic Alliance. The job estimate only includes new jobs registered through CalJOBS, a partnership among the Alliance, the state Employment Development Department, Los Angeles County and the city. The collaboration seeks to connect job seekers with employers that are hiring. last_img read more

first_img14 December 2014The Springbok Sevens defeated New Zealand 26-17 in a pulsating final in the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens, a week after they claimed the Dubai Sevens title.The hosts trailed Fiji by two points coming into their home event, but now lead the standings with 59 points, with Fiji (51), New Zealand (47) and Australia (46) completing the top four places that would esnure automatic entry into the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.More than 63 000 people attended the event in Port Elizabeth and they were left in raptures after the Blitzboks again came from behind to claim the title they won a year ago. The team, who had also trailed Australia in the semifinals (10-0), conceded an early try in the final, as Sherwin Stowers dotted down for New Zealand.Tries by Philip Snyman and Cecil Afrika gave the home side the lead, but Afrika was yellow-carded shortly after and New Zealand used that advantage to claim a second try before the end of the half.Try scorerLeading tournament try-scorer Seabelo Senatla scored early in the second half to push the lead out to nine points, but again New Zealand came back within two minutes with a try by Joe Webber, his second of the final.The deal was sealed for the home side though when Kwagga Smith scored, with Afrika’s conversion providing the necessary buffer for any late All Blacks Sevens counterpunch.Coach Neil Powell was pleased with his side’s ability to stay calm under pressure and to play to their strengths.“We had to dig deep. We had three very worthy opponents today and each asked very different questions. We had to come from behind in each match today, but this team has shown they have the determination and belief to succeed.“We used sport psychologist Dr. Jannie Botha this week and it helped the guys to stay focused in a week full of the pressure that comes with hosting the tournament. A late second half surge by the Springbok Sevens team helped them to a hard-fought 19-10 win over Australia in the semifinals earlier on Sunday.Three second half tries gave the home side a win that looked unlikely after Australia scored twice in a minute and the Blitsboks had Afrika sin-binned as well. Australia’s 10-0 lead was first cut by a try from Branco du Preez, before Kyle Brown and Werner Kok ran in from a distance to clinch the win.In their quarterfinal match against England, they had to overcome an early try by England’s Alex Grey to score a 31-7 win.A brace by Kwagga Smith, another long-range effort by Seabelo Senatla and a well- worked try by Werner Kok secured the passage into the next phase.Earlier the USA won the Plate Final by beating Fiji 21-14, Portugal won the Shield by beating Samoa 19-14 and Canada outlasted Kenya 24-7 for the Bowl.In the bronze final, Australia beat Argentina 34-19.The standings after three rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series are:South Africa 59Fiji 51New Zealand 47Australia 46Argentina 40England 37Samoa 29Scotland 27USA 26Wales 25Source: SA Rugby Unionlast_img read more

first_imgWhen West Yorkshire residents Geoff and Kate Tunstall decided to build a cottage on their property that would serve them well in their retirement years, they found themselves edging closer and closer to the energy efficiency and interior comfort typically attained by Passivhaus construction.And, well, a Passivhaus home – with a nod to Britain’s traditional wall-construction vernacular – is what the Tunstalls are in fact getting.The project, known as the Denby Dale Passivhaus, is being managed by Bill Butcher, a builder and co-founder of green-building supply company The Green Building Store, based in the Bolster Moor area of northern England’s Pennine Mountains, not far from the Tunstalls. Butcher told The Daily Mail that a couple of early designs for the home didn’t perform to Passivhaus standards when modeled on Passivhaus Planning Package software. But the final design – which includes cavity-wall construction and stone cladding typically found in the UK – met the standards entirely, and should be energy efficient enough to keep the Tunstalls’ annual heating bill under $120.The case for cavity-wallButcher noted that while cavity-wall construction materials are quite different from the wall construction components typically used for Passivhaus homes elsewhere, the former is far more familiar to builders in Britain and can be reliably insulated to the required thermal resistance and airtightness.“You can buy a Passivhaus flat pack from Germany, but the materials are completely different,” Butcher noted. “They use a solid wall and stick polystyrene insulation on the outside of the house, they don’t fit into the local streetscape here, builders aren’t familiar with them, and planning can be an issue. This Passivhaus is the first to be built using British construction methods, with blockwork, a cavity wall, and stone cladding.”The 1,270 sq. ft. of the three-bedroom house – which is being built in the garden of the couple’s Victorian home and is due for completion in the spring – will include a heat recovery ventilator and is designed to use 90% less energy for space heating than the annual average in the UK, which is about 150 kWh per square meter. (Click here to read the builder blogs about the project, which also include reader feedback.)But for all its thermal efficiency, as the Mail points out, the house won’t rank high on the UK government’s Code for Sustainable Homes register, mainly because points under that system are awarded for renewables like solar energy systems and woodchip boilers. Nonetheless, the project is of interest to almost everyone in the UK construction industry, for beyond its energy efficiency is its relatively low construction cost: about $227,000.last_img read more

first_imgMumbai: Producer Ekta Kapoor is all praise for National Award-winning actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is the lead actor in her upcoming romantic-comedy production, “Dream Girl”. “After hearing the script, I felt there is only one actor who could pull off the kind of voice modulation that the role required. I told (director) Raaj (Shaandilyaa) that man (Ayushmann) bets on scripts, he will not see how big the director is or how many films he has done. He will only read the script,” said Ekta, at the film’s trailer launch. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka She added: “It takes a lot to play a woman, and he has that ability. You have to be a really talented man to play a woman.” In the movie, co-produced by Ekta’s Balaji Motion Pictures, Ayushmann essays a man who can talk in a female voice and his actions lead to hilarious consequences. While Ayushmann admitted it was not at all easy to talk in a female voice, he also shared that his experience of working on radio, where he had done voice modulation, helped him shoot the film. Also Read – Salman Khan remembers actor Vinod Khanna The actor also shared what he feels about women. “They are more compassionate as a gender, and calmer. I feel they are more attached, even though I do not believe in generalisation. I think men and women are the same in everything in life,” he said. The subject of his National Award win as Best Actor for “Andhadhun”, naturally cropped up. “It is overwhelming. It feels surreal. I still have butterflies in my stomach. It adds responsibility on me, too. My approach towards work has always been serious and, even though I am not very serious person in real life, I have always approached scripts with that mentality and sensibility. It has worked till now, I hope it works in the future as well,” he said. “Dream Girl” is directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa and also stars Nushrat Bharucha, Manjot Singh and Abhishek Banerjee in key roles. The rom-com is slated to hit theatres on September 13.last_img read more

first_imgSeoul: South Korean President Moon Jae-in struck a conciliatory tone towards Japan on Thursday, offering to “join hands” if Tokyo chooses dialogue as relations between the two countries dip to fresh lows.Seoul and Tokyo — both of them democracies and market economies — are mired in long-running disputes over Japan’s use of forced labour in the first half of the 20th century.The two neighbours have been embroiled in a tit-for-tat trade war that saw them remove each other from their lists of trusted trading partners this month, raising concerns over global supply chains. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThat came after Tokyo imposed restrictions on exports crucial to tech giants such as Samsung last month, following a series of South Korean court rulings ordering Japanese firms to pay for wartime labour.But Moon sought to dial down the temperature on Thursday, saying Seoul was willing to work with Tokyo to secure “fair trade and cooperation” in the region.”If Japan chooses the path of dialogue and cooperation, we will gladly join hands,” Moon said in a speech to mark the anniversary of Korea’s liberation from Japan’s 1910-45 rule. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsDressed in a light blue hanbok, Moon — who earlier this month vowed South Korea will “never be defeated again by Japan” — insisted that Seoul has “not dwelt on the past”.”Reflecting on the past does not mean clinging to the past but overcoming what happened and moving toward the future,” said Moon.”We hope that Japan will play a leading role together in facilitating peace and prosperity in East Asia while it contemplates a past that brought misfortune to its neighbouring countries.” Tokyo maintains that all issues of wartime compensation were settled under the 1965 treaty that re-established diplomatic ties which included a package of about 800 million in grants and cheap loans for the former colony.The dispute has raised concerns over the potential implications on the security cooperation between the two US allies in the face of a series of North Korean missile tests in recent weeks.Pyongyang and Washington are engaged in a long-running diplomatic process over the North’s nuclear and missile programmes that has seen three unprecedented encounters between their leaders in the space of a year although little progress has been made on denuclearisation.Moon sought to play down North Korea’s recent tests — following the example of US President Donald Trump — as he assured Seoul had “even stronger” defence capabilities and was working to prevent escalation of tensions.But, he added: “The ultimate goal that these actions serve is dialogue, not confrontation.” The dovish South Korean president has long favoured dialogue with Pyongyang, dangling cross-border business projects as incentives.Moon said economic cooperation with the North will provide a one-stop solution to “problems we currently face, such as low growth, low birth rate and an aging society”.But proposed projects are currently blocked because of international sanctions imposed on the North over its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.Moon pledged Thursday that he will “solidify the foundation” with the goal of “achieving peace and unification by 2045”, although his single five-year term presidency ends in 2022.Pyongyang has recently given Seoul the cold shoulder, saying nuclear talks will be “strictly” between the North and the US and refusing to hold a separate dialogue with the South.last_img read more
