Reflecting badly?: Vettel denies Ferrari ‘halo’ mirrors unfair

first_imgHe rejected the idea that Ferrari were seeking to make their cars faster.“That’s why we changed it because it was quite difficult for us to see cars behind,” he said.“Now they are in a bit of a different position, and I can see a little bit better below the rear wing.“So that’s why we changed it. I think it also looks better. The halo is still not pretty, but it makes it look a little bit better.”Vettel said the innovation demonstrates that Ferrari is coming up with pioneering design ideas and he suspects other teams will copy the idea.“In the last couple of years, I think we came up with stuff that other people tend to copy,” he explained.“Most of the cars now followed our trend in terms of the side-pods and some of the bargeboard designs.“It’s a confirmation that we’re heading the right way. I think we have the tools, we have the people, and ultimately, we need to do it. That’s what we all want, but there’s a lot of work ahead of us.”Ferrari’s new mirrors on the halo was the most creative new design on show at the Circuit de Catalunya on Friday for opening practice at the Spanish Grand Prix.McLaren also caught the eye with a radical new front wing design.Of his fourth place in second practice, Vettel said he was reasonably satisfied.“Today, I think, was OK. The car balance, I’m reasonably happy. I think overall it’s been a tricky day with the tyres to understand where they are because we changed. We had to change, everybody had to change. We’ll see.“I think we can improve. I know there’s a little bit more in the car and a little bit more in me if I get everything together. So it should be OK, but I don’t know where we will end up.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mirror image: Sebastian Vettel in his Ferrari which had mirrors placed on the halo head-protection unit © AFP / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain, May 11 – Sebastian Vettel said on Friday that newly-fitted rear-view mirrors mounted on the ‘halo’ of his Ferrari car are designed for improved vision and are not an aerodynamic advantage.The four-time world champion said the new mirrors offered much-improved rear visibility and, at the same time, made the ‘halo’ head protection look more attractive.last_img read more

Proposition R back on November ballot

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhy these photogenic dumplings are popping up in Los Angeles By that date, however, it would be too late to remove Proposition R from the sample ballot and voter information guide. The appeals court decision marks a victory for the City Council and proponents of Proposition R — the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and League of Women Voters — which had appealed the Superior Court judge’s ruling. Opponents had argued that the measure covered two issues: allowing City Council members to run for a third, four-year term and changing a number of lobbying and campaign finance disclosure requirements. But supporters’ attorneys argued that the single-subject rule doesn’t apply to this measure, and even if it did, the term limits extension and ethics reforms are part of a comprehensive reform package designed to lessen the influence of lobbyists at City Hall. An appeals court cleared the way today for Proposition R, the Los Angeles City Council’s term limits/ethics reform measure, to remain on the November ballot. The ruling by the 2nd District Court of Appeals halted a Los Angeles’ Superior Court judge’s order Thursday to remove Proposition R from the ballot. The decision by the three-judge panel directs the Los Angeles County Registrar — which faced a ballot-printing deadline of today — to include Proposition R on the Nov. 7 ballot. But the appellate court also set an Oct. 3 hearing to consider the merits of the case, including whether the proposition violates the state Constitution’s requirement that ballot measures only address one subject. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Willian wants Eden Hazard to stay at Chelsea

first_imgMid-day hosts first-of-its-kind girls football tournament | Ranis of Rink 2019 Willian says Chelsea have refused to give up hope that talisman Eden Hazard will be at Stamford Bridge next season, with the Belgian apparently edging closer to a move to Real Madrid. Hazard fired the winning spot-kick on Thursday as Chelsea edged out Eintracht Frankfurt 4-3 on penalties to book an all-English Europa League final against Arsenal, in what could prove his last act at Stamford Bridge. The Belgium forward is still expected to join Real in a big-money move this summer, but his Brazilian teammate Willian continues to hope otherwise. Luka Jovic cancelled out Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s strike to take the semi-final second leg into extra time before penalties had to separate the sides with the aggregate score level at 2-2 and one away goal apiece. Asked if Hazard’s decisive penalty could prove his last kick at Stamford Bridge, Willian replied: “I don’t know, I don’t think so. “For me I hope he stays, but in football you never know. I think his head is here, to play for Chelsea. Then after he’s finished the season maybe he can talk about his situation. “I don’t know anything about him leaving so for me I hope he can stay. He’s very important, a special player, he’s very important for us, he helps us a lot.Related News ‘Starstruck’ David Beckham shares photo with Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke Kevin De Bruyne: Manchester City have to put in hard work to retain EPL crown “And he’s one of the best players in the world.” Hazard appears close to sealing his Madrid move, with his Chelsea contract expiring next summer and the Blues understood to be holding out for £100 million ($130 million). The Belgium star told BT Sport “In my mind I don’t know yet” when asked if he had already played his last game at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said his side would be worthy Europa League winners after a turbulent campaign that could end in success. “We were in trouble three months ago and, here in England, if you’re in trouble the level of opponents is very high and it’s not easy to overcome difficulties,” said Sarri. “We were able to do it.

6 Strategies to Get a Raise Without Asking

first_imgYou don’t have to wait for your annual review to get a raise nor do you have to find a new job as leverage for one. There is a host of ways to get an increase in your salary without even having to ask.In this tight economy, where jobs are hard to come by, many workers passively accept the fact that any raises coming their way will likely be at the end of the year during review time. Others, fearing that even asking will put them on the firing line, will go as far as to find another job and use that as a way to ask for more money from their current employer.But instead of passively accepting a fate or spending all that effort to get a counter offer, employees can get a raise and all it requires is going above and beyond in their current position.“The best way to get a raise without asking is to simply outperform at your job,” says Aravinda Rao Souza, senior marketing manager at BullHorn. “If you shine in this regard, you’ll automatically attract the attention of your supervisors, and if there are raises to be given, you’ll be first in line.”When it comes to shining there is more than one way to do it. From finding an advocate to doing double duty, here’s a look at six strategies that can help you get a raise without asking.Strategy No. 1: Add value by brining on new customersMoney talks and if you are the one bringing more money to a company or saving them some, chances are you will be rewarded for that effort. According to Susan Ruhl, a managing partner at OI Partners Innovative Career Consulting in Denver, adding value could mean many things. It could be bringing in new customers or cutting costs by using suppliers you’ve worked in the past. Or it may mean providing referrals that lead to key hires. The idea is to become valuable to the company because you helped the business grow or protect its bottom line.Strategy No. 2:  Do double your jobDoing more with less has been the mantra for some years now as companies have suffered through the protracted recession. Even now, with things on the mend, if you can do double the job you were hire for it almost guarantees you will get noticed in a positive way. “If you can do everything expected of you in your current job extremely well, plus find the time and resources to take on value-adding projects no one asked you to do and do them well, you’ll be rewarded for it,” says Souza.Strategy No. 3: Find an advocateYou can spend all day singing your own praises but if you want to get noticed by the higher ups, a great way to do that is have other people do it for you. If you can find people who can speak on your behalf about your accomplishments and work ethic it can go a long way in getting you noticed and thus more money, says Joel Garfinkle, author of Getting Ahead: Three Steps to Take Your Career to the Next Level. “Advocates promote your value and worth to people in positions of power, like your boss,” he says. “Once your boss repeatedly hears from your advocates, he/she will be inclined to give you a raise without you asking.”Strategy No. 4:  Make Your boss look greatEveryone has aspirations to be the head guy or girl, but it’s not going to make you any friends if you engage in any ruthless behavior to get there. On the other hand, trying to get your supervisor promoted, says Souza, is a great way to get yourself a raise as well. “Making your bosses look like great leaders – by doing an excellent job, turning your team into a well-oiled machine, and showcasing their achievements – can definitely make you stand out in a good way,” says Souza. “If you’re trying to move up (financially or in terms of title) by yourself at the expense of others, be prepared for a fight. If you’re trying to move everyone up a level, however, be prepared for a party.”Strategy 5: Volunteer for tasks no one wants to doNothing screams team player more than volunteering for a task that no one else in the office wants to do. It could be organizing the holiday party, running a charity event or getting all the employees on board with a new wellness program. If you volunteer and do it well it will not only show you are a team player but it shows you understand the pains of the company and are executing to help them overcome the problems or challenges, says Ruhl.Strategy 6: Get on a high profile assignmentIt may not be easy, but if you are able to swing it, getting assigned to highly visible projects will ensure the key players know you because your name is apt to come up more frequently, says Garfinkle. “Highly visible projects help to expand your exposure, increase your impact and become more impactful,” he says. “As you gain increased recognition, your manager will be inclined to provide you with a raise without asking because your impact is known and he wants to reward you.”last_img read more

How to Get a Job by Picking Up a Magazine

first_imgI was in the airport the other day flipping through magazines when I experienced an epiphany about how to get a job. More often than not, magazines have a feedback section where readers comment on stories and articles that were featured in the previous issue. In other instances, there is a “Letter to the Editor” column where reader emails are addressed.  In either case, the person commenting in the magazine are often cited by their name, email and (in fewer cases) their website address.Why not find a magazine that speaks to the industry you work in, and send in a well thought out comment or rebuttal to someone that was published in the last issue? In your response, ask the publisher to cite your email address and link to your personal website. If you do not have a website, the next best thing is to link to one of your social network profiles.Wouldn’t it be amazing if a hiring manager happened to be reading your brilliant comment and send an email to you for more information? It could happen, but only if you write in.If you like this strategy, why not do a search for editorial calendars? An editorial calendar is a plan of what a magazine will post and when. Armed with this information, you could research a topic ahead of time and be ready to add great feedback when the time comes. I know of a couple of ways to get a magazine’s editorial calendar. One way is to search online to see if it’s already posted. Click here to see a search I’ve done where I am looking for any 2014 editorial calendar that mentions the keyphrase “computer science” because that is my interest. An example of what I found with this search is below.I’m curious to find out if anyone has had any success using this type of strategy in the past. Let me know in the comments below!last_img read more

How to Exercise in the Office

first_imgToday’s workforce is increasingly made up of office jobs, mostly due to our post-Industrial economy. But many reports show that even if you’re getting the recommended amount of daily exercise (30 minutes of moderate activity each day), it still may not be enough to counter the negative effects of sitting at your office desk all day.According to a post on Forbes, fewer than 20% of today’s jobs involve physical activity, and many people sit for as long as four hours a day at work. In fact, many continue to do sedentary activities when they come home, like watching TV or sitting at the dinner table.Sitting for prolonged periods of time increases your risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. But many of us can’t quit our jobs to become pro athletes, so how can we break up our days and ensure we’re being active at work? Check out these tips for getting more exercise in the office:Park farther away. If you can’t walk to work to sneak in some exercise, try to dismiss the urge to park in the closest available spot. Any bit of extra activity helps, and in fact, parking at the back of the lot can start to add up in terms of calories burned.Use a stability ball. Swapping out your desk chair for a stability ball can help you to burn more calories, tone your abs, and improve your posture and balance. Additionally, you’ll have an exercise tool readily available for when you want to stretch or do mini-workouts. You won’t even have to get up!Keep weights or a resistance band at your desk. Pull these out whenever you have a break, or even when you’re taking a second to sit back and brainstorm. There are a number of exercises you can do with these tools in the office.Invest in a treadmill desk. Treadmill desks work to ensure you’re getting exercise while you’re working at your computer. Stand while you work or walk at a comfortable pace of 1-2 mph. You can purchase a treadmill desk or make one yourself—check out some of your choices here. They’re an attractive option if you work from home, but you can also consider asking your boss about installing one in the office. I recently purchased one from LifeSpan, and I can say that walking 3-4 hours per day has given me new energy at work! Worried about not being able to walk and type? I was too, but I’ve found that I can do pretty much anything while going 2 mph.Working in an office all day doesn’t necessarily mean you have to fall victim to a sedentary lifestyle. Use these tips to stay active, and good luck!How do you squeeze exercise into your day at the office? Share your tips below.last_img read more
