Lincoln County goes Red, White, Boom!

first_imgTroy Bayne piloted his Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod to victory after starting on the outside of the front row and the IMCA Hobby Stock feature event was as good as advertised, as the full field challenged for top honors. In the most exciting feature of the evening, Bob Chalupa was the early leader in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car main event. Chalupa relinquished the lead to fourth row starter Mikey Dancer on the sixth lap.  Osborn’s efforts were rewarded with the IMCA Modified feature victory. Osborn started on the pole and never looked back as he built cushions between himself and the field following each restart.  NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (July 4) – Getting the chance to shine in front of an Independence Day crowd, four IMCA drivers punched their tickets to the winner’s circle at the Red, White and Boom Night of racing action at Lincoln County Raceway Saturday evening.  Dancer had to work through traffic to gain the lead and checked out once he got there. Colton Osborn encountered heavier traffic coming from his fifth row starting spot and ran out of real estate making a move for the lead as the checkered flag waved. When the smoke cleared, Luke Wassom was in the winner’s circle. By Kelly Ninaslast_img read more

Privacy Commissioner says priority given to examination of Equifax data hack

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada’s Privacy Commissioner office says it has prioritized an examination into the massive Equifax data hack to ensure that Canadians are protected against future risks.In a posting on its website, it says it plans to work with data protection authorities in Canada and elsewhere to find out what went wrong.It says it has asked the credit monitoring company to tell Canadians as soon as possible if their information was stolen and to adopt measures to help them.Equifax said last Thursday a security breach occurred over the summer resulting in the private information of up to 143 million people in the United States being compromised, along with certain Canadian and U.K. residents.In a posting on the Canadian part of its website, Equifax says it is “working night and day to assess what happened.”It says the data breach is “contained,” and the Canadian breach may have involved names, addresses and social insurance numbers.Equifax says “only a limited number of Canadians may have been affected.”It says a dedicated website and call centre set up last week won’t help Canadians because it uses U.S. social security numbers, without offering an alternative. The Privacy Commissioner suggested Canadians can call Equifax at 1-866-828-5961 (English service) or 1-877-323-2598 (French service).Equifax discovered the hack July 29, but waited until Thursday to warn consumers.An Ontario resident has started a proposed class action on behalf of Canadians who may have been affected by the hack.The proposed class action includes all residents of Canada whose information was stored on Equifax databases and was accessed without authorization between May 1, 2017 and Aug. 1, 2017.The statement of claim alleges Equifax breached its contract with class members as well as their privacy rights, was negligent in handling their information, and breached provincial privacy statutes.Allegations in the statement of claim have not been proven in court.In the United States, the theft included consumers’ names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases, driver’s licence numbers.last_img read more

Suncor Energy says driverless trucks will eliminate a net 400 positions

first_imgCALGARY – About 400 jobs are expected to disappear at Suncor Energy Inc.’s oilsands mines in northern Alberta as it deploys driverless ore-hauling trucks to replace the ones humans operate now.“We have about 500 roles that will get eliminated through this and we’re going to add about 100. So the net change in our workforce is about 400 positions,” chief operating officer Mark Little said in an interview Wednesday.The company has been testing the 400-tonne capacity Komatsu trucks for about four years and has nine now. It announced Tuesday it will gradually build a fleet of more than 150 driverless trucks over the next six years, starting with the North Steepbank mine at its Base Camp north of Fort McMurray.Suncor is the first oilsands mining operation to adopt the technology.Tokyo-based Komatsu Ltd. this week celebrated the 10th anniversary of deployment of its first autonomous truck at a Codelco copper mine in Chile, noting that more than 100 trucks now operate at four Rio Tinto Ltd. iron ore mines in Australia, the mine in Chile and at Suncor.On Tuesday, Melbourne-based Rio Tinto announced its autonomous haul trucks had achieved the milestone of having moved a total of one billion tonnes of material without being involved in any injury accidents. In December, it announced it would expand its fleet of about 80 trucks to 140 by the end of 2019.Suncor’s plan to test the autonomous truck systems was initially criticized by the Unifor union local because of job losses. But Little says Suncor is working with the union to minimize job impacts by retraining workers whose jobs will disappear.The company has been preparing for the switch by hiring its truck drivers, including those at its just-opened Fort Hills mine, on a temporary basis, he added. Suncor said the earliest there will be a decrease in heavy equipment operator positions at Base Plant operations is 2019.Little said the company will replace trucks that have reached the end of their useful life with new Komatsu trucks. He said they cost about $5 million each, not including the obstacle detection systems and computer gear needed for autonomy.Some of Suncor’s newer existing trucks will be retrofitted, he added.He said the autonomous trucks are so efficient — because they operate 24 hours a day and stop only for fuel — the company will need fewer trucks in the future than it employs now.Komatsu says tires on its autonomous trucks last 40 per cent longer because the trucks avoid sudden acceleration and abrupt steering.Rio Tinto’s trucks are controlled remotely from its operations centre in Perth, about 1,500 kilometres from the mines, but Little said Suncor is initially going to operate the trucks from control rooms at each mine site.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:SU)last_img read more

UK secures delay to Brexit Day with strict EU caveats

first_imgLondon: The UK has secured a short delay to the March 29 Brexit deadline after the European Union (EU) leaders reluctantly agreed to offer embattled Prime Minister Theresa May time until May 22 to get the divorce deal through another House of Commons vote next week. If the agreement, already defeated twice over the controversial Irish backstop clause, fails to clear the UK Parliament for a third time, the EU has set April 12 as the deadline for Britain to make up its mind on the next move. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USWhile the EU’s latest offer reduces the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit by the March 29 deadline, the UK could still leave without a deal if Prime Minister May fails to get the backing for her deal from MPs by April 12. The UK government will still have a choice of a deal, no-deal, a long extension or revoking Article 50, said Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, soon after EU leaders agreed to May’s plea for a short extension to the Brexit deadline at an ongoing council meeting in Brussels. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”April 12 is a key date in terms of the UK wondering whether to hold European Parliament elections. If it has not decided to do so by then the option of a long extension will immediately become impossible, said Tusk, on behalf of all EU member-countries. If May’s deal fails to clear the Parliament hurdle yet again next week, the UK would be expected to table its no-deal plans for crashing out of the 28-member economic bloc by April 12 or accept a longer extension to the Article 50 mechanism and contest the European Parliament elections scheduled for May 23. “I hope that we can all agree we are now at the moment of decision. And I will make every effort to ensure that we are able to leave with a deal and move our country forward,” May said, adding that Britain’s MPs now had a clear choice . She, however, did not repeat her vehement opposition to the prospect of a longer extension to Article 50, which is likely to come with many strings attached from Brussels. In return for even more time for Brexit, should Britain go down that route, the EU will demand that the UK holds a general election or a second referendum. A longer extension on offer is believed to run until December 31 this year or beyond. The BBC quoting Downing Street sources said that an agreement with the EU to extend the Brexit deadline would be a piece of international law and would take precedence even if Parliament rejected it.last_img read more
