Chelsea director Granovskaia: Hudson-Odoi deserves new contractby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea director Marina Granovskaia believes that youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is fully deserving of his new contract at the club.It was only a few months ago that Hudson-Odoi was determined to leave Chelsea.Bayern Munich were interested in the player. Now he has renewed with the Blues for another five years.And Granovskaia had some very positive things to say about Hudson-Odoi.She said to the club’s official website: “The club has already been rewarded this season by some brilliant performances from our young Academy graduates, and Callum’s new contract guarantees Frank has another outstanding prospect at his disposal.”I have seen Callum come through and he’s a fantastic talent,’ said Lampard. ‘He is going to be central for us on the pitch and that is the opportunity in front of him now.”There are things as a young player that he will want to improve but he can be central to this team and for England. I want to work with him, I want to drive him forward and I want to improve him as a player.”Callum can show, right here at Chelsea, the club he came through the Academy at, that he is going to be a world-class player because I truly believe that.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
zoom Norwegian owner Samba AS has taken delivery of a Damen Multi Cat 2712. Captain and joint owner Bjørn Brimsholm, who sailed the new workboat over from the Netherlands to Norway was satisfied with its performance, even though the vessel faced Force 8 gales for most of the three-day journey.The Damen Multi Cat 2712 was named ‘Fox Fighter’ in a naming ceremony at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld in the Netherlands on June 12.Speaking just after his arrival in Bergen on the newly christened Fox Fighter, Capt. Brimsholm comments: “We had a really hard wind and were a bit worried about how the vessel would perform because she is not ‘a typical ship shaped’ vessel but there was absolutely no need to worry. The Multi Cat 2712 was really comfortable for the crew and very quiet. It was much better than we thought in rough weather and she definitely had quite a test!”Based in Os, Samba is majority owned by Capt. Brimsholm and his cousin.The company plans to deploy the Damen Multi Cat 2712 in the oil industry in the spot market and this will be combined with working in the Norwegian aquaculture sector.Samba was attracted by the layout of the Damen Multi Cat 2712, adds Capt. Brimsholm, as the winches can be used both ways and it has two large cranes.The Norwegian company already has a Damen vessel, when Samba acquired a Damen Multi Cat 2409 named Molly in 2013. She is on a 3+1 year contract treating salmon with hydrogen peroxide, a treatment for lice and amoebic gill disease. The Fox Fighter is also likely to do similar work, as well as mooring and maintenance tasks in the future. “We have been very pleased with the quality of this vessel and therefore decided to come to Damen again but for a newbuild vessel.”Coupled with the quality of the vessel itself, Samba decided to order from Damen because of its ability to deliver very quickly. The Multi Cat 2712 was ordered on May 8 and was in Norway on June 17!The vessel will be the first newbuild from Damen’s proven range of workboats to operate in Norway’s large aquaculture and spot oil market.Damen Sales Manager in Stavanger, Remko Hottentot, says: “The aquaculture industry can benefit from Damen’s standardised platforms for versatile and reliable workboats. The Multi Cat range is one of our most trusted and proven products.” Remko adds: “And this order shows client-specific customisation is no problem. The vessels are highly suited for carrying out day-to-day work such as the transport of personnel/equipment and maintenance or more specialised tasks for the aquaculture industry.”Press Release, June 23, 2014
RICHIBUCTO, N.B. – A pair of alleged New Brunswick bank robbers were arrested as they stopped at Tim Hortons after the heist.RCMP say the Royal Bank of Canada on Main Street in Richibucto was robbed Monday afternoon.They say a man demanded money from a bank employee before fleeing in a car with an undisclosed amount of cash.Police spotted a car matching the description and followed it to a Tim Hortons in nearby Bouctouche, where a 24-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were arrested.The man was charged with robbery and wearing a mask while committing an offence, and is to enter a plea on February 6.The woman was released, pending a court appearance on May 8.
SPIRITWOOD, Sask. — For a Saskatchewan woman who discovered a fugitive Mountie killer hiding in her family’s hayfield more than a decade ago, the intense search for two young murder suspects in northern Manitoba stirs old memories.Rosanne Smith and her husband Armand managed to convince Curtis Dagenais to surrender in July 2006, after he led police on a nearly two-week manhunt. The then 41-year-old had gunned down RCMP constables Robin Cameron and Marc Bourdages during a vehicle chase on back roads near Spiritwood, Sask., following a family dispute. Both officers later died in hospital.Dagenais escaped on foot into the woods. The RCMP set up roadblocks and established a large perimeter around an area where they figured he was hiding.Smith remembers hearing helicopters overhead and being stopped on the highway as police searched for Dagenais, similar to the way Manitoba RCMP are looking for Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod, suspects in three killings in their home province of British Columbia.Smith says she wasn’t scared of Dagenais while he was on the run, just cautious. She and her husband had known him from the time he was a boy, as did many others in the area.One big difference between the search for Dagenais and the search for Schmegelsky and McLeod is that Dagenais had grown up in the area where he was hiding, about two hours north of Saskatoon. He knew how to navigate the landscape and its trails, fields, bush and ponds.Dagenais had been on the run for 10 days when he spent a night inside Smith’s tractor.The next morning, she and her husband drove into their field. In front of the machine, they noticed moving grass.“We thought, ‘maybe a porcupine,’” Smith recalls. “When he turned his head, we knew who it was.“The first instinct was to get the hell out of there. But that didn’t happen and it was probably a good thing it didn’t happen.”Dagenais had some ham and bread so he wasn’t starving.He seemed calm as he stood up and approached their vehicle. They started talking, she says.“He wanted to talk, so what do you do? You talk, and you talk and you talk and you talk.”The couple eventually brought him into their home where they stayed until late afternoon.Smith made dinner.“I even let him smoke in our house,” she says.“Nobody smoked in our house. I couldn’t even hardly find an ash tray, but I thought: OK, if he wants to have a smoke, then I’ll guess we’ll let him have a smoke.”Smith isn’t sure what the couple said that persuaded Dagenais to walk into the Spiritwood RCMP detachment and turn himself in.She remembers him being at a loss for what to do next. “We just said, ‘Well you can’t be on the run for the rest of your life. I mean, it’s not going to work,’” she recalls.“You’re almost a dead duck if you don’t give yourself in.”The Smith’s farm was outside the area where the RCMP were looking for Dagenais.“They were looking in the wrong place, but how do you know where to look,” she says.The search could have gone on much longer if it weren’t for them finding him that day. Smith says she believes the manhunt could also have ended in more tragedy.“I wouldn’t want to have to go through it again,” she says. “It was stressful.”Dagenais is currently serving a life sentence for first-degree murder.— By Stephanie Taylor in Regina.The Canadian Press
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is setting out to do what this year’s farm bill didn’t: tighten work requirements for millions of Americans who receive federal food assistance.The Agriculture Department is proposing a rule that would restrict the ability of states to exempt work-eligible adults from having to obtain steady employment to receive food stamps.The move comes just weeks after lawmakers passed a $400 billion farm bill that reauthorized agriculture programs while leaving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program virtually untouched.Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue says the proposed rule to tighten work requirements will give President Donald Trump “comfort enough to support a farm bill he might otherwise have opposed.”Juliet Linderman, The Associated Press
The United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) kicked off a two-week meeting today, closely examining the issues underpinning the current food crisis. “The international community has only belatedly recognized this food crisis, threatening much of humanity,” said Sha Zukang, Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs.He called for long-term planning and analysis of deeper problems that have threatened food security to determine how to avoid such a crisis in the future.“The basic problem is that agricultural productivity growth has been slowing since the 1970s, even as demand for food has been accelerating,” Mr. Sha said.The current session – running until 16 May – launches a two-year cycle seeking to tackle topics – including agriculture, land use, rural development, desertification and drought – that are key to boosting the world’s food supply while addressing problems pertaining to poverty, hunger and the environment.Government officials, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society representatives are among those who will take part in the meeting, and over 50 government ministers are expected to take part in the high level segment from 14-16 May. 5 May 2008The United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) kicked off a two-week meeting today, closely examining the issues underpinning the current food crisis.
SNC-Lavalin awarded contract for Quebec diamond mine in James Bay region MONTREAL — SNC-Lavalin has signed a contract with Stornoway Diamonds Inc. to provide project, engineering and construction management services for a diamond mine located in Quebec’s James Bay region.The value of the contract was not announced, however the company said the work included will cover roughly $425 million of the planned capital spending at the project.The Montreal engineering and construction company says it will manage the building of the mineral processing plant, a liquid natural gas power plant and other on-site utilities, including service buildings, water treatment facilities and infrastructure. Work is expected to be finished by December 2016.The roughly $1-billion project is Quebec’s first diamond mine and is being developed by Stornoway Diamond Corp. in a remote area 350 kilometres north of Chibougamau in Northern Quebec. Anticipated average diamond production of 1.6 million carats per year.Stornoway, based in Longueuil, Que., has said commercial production is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2017.The Quebec government has said the 30 months it will take to build facilities will create about 600 jobs, while mining activities will create 475 direct and 600 indirect jobs.Once mining gets underway, the mine is expected to make Quebec the sixth-largest producer of diamonds in the world.Stornoway secured $946 million in funding for the Renard mine with Investissement Quebec and the Caisse de depot et placement, Quebec’s largest pension fund manager, both participating in the financing. The province has a 29% investment in the project, which Economic Development Minister Jacques Daoust has said will translate into $1 billion in taxes and interest for the province.

Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Oct 23, 2014 6:34 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Applications for US unemployment aid rise to 283,000, though remain near 14-year low WASHINGTON – The number of people applying for U.S. unemployment benefits rose last week after falling to a 14-year low the previous week. Despite the increase, weekly applications remain at historically low levels that suggest hiring is gaining steam.Applications rose 17,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 283,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. That is the sixth straight reading below 300,000. Applications have fallen 19 per cent in the past year.The figures indicate that recent signs of slowing growth overseas and last week’s financial market volatility haven’t spooked employers. Most appear confident enough to hold onto their staffs.“More encouraging news on the U.S. job front,” said Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. The report “shows that job creation continued to forge ahead in October.”Applications are a proxy for layoffs. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, declined 3,000 to 281,000, the lowest in 14 years. As a percentage of the working population, applications are near their lowest levels since the early 1970s.Fewer people are continuing to receive benefits as well. The number of unemployment aid recipients dropped 38,000 to 2.35 million in the week ended Oct. 11, according to the latest data available.Joseph LaVorgna, an economist at Deutsche Bank, estimates that the current level of applications points to average monthly job gains of above 250,000.U.S. businesses have already been hiring workers at a healthy pace. Employers have added an average of 227,000 jobs a month this year. That’s up from an average of 194,000 last year. The economy has gained 2.64 million jobs in the past 12 months, the best annual showing since April 2006. The unemployment rate has fallen to 5.9 per cent, a six-year low.More hiring translates into more paychecks and more consumers able to spend, boosting economic growth.Still, the job market is far from full health. More than 7 million people hold part-time jobs but would like full-time work, up from 4.6 million before the downturn. And there are still twice as many people unemployed for longer than six months as there were before the recession, even though that figure has steadily declined in the past three years.
“Such an order is clearly discriminatory based on one’s nationality and leads to increased stigmatization of Muslim communities,” said the UN Special Rapporteurs on migrant, François Crépeau; on racism, Mutuma Ruteere; on human rights and counter-terrorism, Ben Emmerson; on torture, Nils Melzer; and on freedom of religion, Ahmed Shaheed, in a news release issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“The US recent policy on immigration also risks people being returned, without proper individual assessments and asylum procedures, to places in which they risk being subjected to torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, in direct contravention of international humanitarian and human rights laws which uphold the principle of non-refoulement,” they warned.The Executive Order, signed by President Trump on 27 January bars all nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – from entering the US for the next 90 days.It also stops the entire US refugee programme for 120 days, indefinitely bans Syrian refugees, and halts the planned entry of more than 50,000 refugees in the US fiscal year 2017, which began in October 2016 and will end in September 2017, according to the news release.In the midst of the world’s greatest migration crisis since World War II, this is a significant setback for those who are obviously in need of international protectionNoting that “in the midst of the world’s greatest migration crisis since World War II, this is a significant setback for those who are obviously in need of international protection,” the rights experts stressed: “The US must live up to its international obligations and provide protection for those fleeing persecution and conflicts.”“The US is also involved in conflicts such as those in Iraq and Syria and its responsibility must extend to offering refuge to those fleeing from the conflicts,” they added.According to the news release, the Executive Order also applies to those who come from the countries listed – whether or not they have valid visa documents or are in transit.It also affects those who have dual nationality, who either have a passport from one of those countries or are travelling from one of those countries. Furthermore, those currently residing in the US may be able to fly to the US but entry is not guaranteed.“This is deeply troubling, and we are additionally concerned that such persons travelling to the US will be subject to detention for an undefined period of time and then ultimately deported,” the human rights experts said.Independent experts and Special Rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva based UN Human Rights Council – an inter-governmental body responsible for promoting and protecting human rights around the world – to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
Members of Ohio State’s men’s ice hockey team celebrate a goal by freshman forward Tanner Laczynski (9) in the third period of the Buckeye’s game against Bowling Green on Oct. 22. The Buckeyes won 6-1. Credit: Breanna Crye | For The LanternExactly one year ago, Ohio State men’s hockey coach Steve Rohlik found his program 0-5 after a tough loss to Providence and looking for answers. It would not be until Oct. 31, 2015, when he and his team would grab their first win, making them 1-7 on the year.After a dominating 6-1 win over in-state rival Bowling Green on Saturday night in OSU’s home opener, he now has his squad undefeated in their opening five games at 3-0-2 and ranked No. 19 in the country.A night after a come-from-behind 5-4 victory on the road, led by senior captain Nick Schilkey in the third period, the forward opened up the scoring on Saturday for the Buckeyes. Schilkey’s goal came just five minutes into the period and catalyzed a quick 3-0 OSU lead after 20 minutes at the Schottenstein Center.Schilkey and freshman forward, and Philadelphia Flyers draft pick Tanner Laczynski each added a goal to seal the Buckeyes 6-1 victory and a weekend sweep of the Falcons.“I thought it was awesome,” Laczynski said. “After a victory at their place, I knew we needed to get the win here. To close it off with a win, you can’t beat that.”OSU raced through its toughest part of its non-conference schedule with a win over then-No. 3 Denver and the sweep against the Falcons, who were predicted to win the Western Collegiate Hockey Association conference. Rohlik said the veteran leadership guided the team to a quick start. “We’ve got a lot of resilient guys in that locker room and I think we’ve got great leadership,” Rohlik said. “When you’ve got guys like (Schilkey) and your other two captains, it becomes your culture. These guys expect to win and not just hoping we stay close. I think that’s what the rest of the team is looking at right now and I think that is what is leading this team.”Schilkey, who manufactured three goals and an assist through the weekend, recognizes the depth and offensive firepower this team can produce on any given night, as the Scarlet and Gray lit the lamp 11 times against the Falcons in two games.“We talked prior to the season about how we’ll try to get the young guys going, making them comfortable and confident in the lineup,” Schilkey said. “We’re four lines deep right now. We’re confident up front for sure.”Not to be outdone, OSU senior goalie Matt Tomkins stopped 28 of the 29 shots sent his way in the win on Saturday.Through five games last year, OSU had lost three one-goal games. So far this season, they have persevered to come out on top in close matchups.“When you looked at our schedule and you looked at what we had on the road early on four out of the first five (games),” Rohlik said. “We’ve played four one-goal games already. It’s been kind of the norm for this team so today was a little not normal.”OSU looks to continue its unbeaten streak as they head to Niagara Falls to take on Niagara next weekend for two games.
Ohio State then-freshman tight end Jeremy Ruckert (88) runs the ball down the field towards the end zone during the fourth quarter of the game against Oregon State on Sept. 1. Ohio State won 77-31. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorIt has been 16 years since Ohio State has had a single tight end record 30 receptions, when Ben Hartsock recorded 33 catches for 209 yards and two touchdowns in 2003.A season ago, that pattern continued, with then-redshirt junior Rashod Berry, then-sophomore Luke Farrell and then-freshman Jeremy Ruckert combining for 30 catches, 296 yards and three touchdowns between them.Ohio State has not been known for its production at the tight end position.But the trio of tight ends, as well as junior Jake Hausmann, are all returning for the Buckeyes, combining to make one of the most experienced positions on the roster.Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said he can see a future for the offense that relies much more on the tight end than it has in recent memory.“They’re getting there. I mean they’re a strength because we got everybody back, and they’ve had a good offseason,” Day said. “The strength of a college football coach is being able to adapt and being able to figure out what your strengths are, who the best personnel is, and then putting the right package together on the field and not just putting a system in.”Day has no absolute answer for what package would best benefit the tight end offensively, and the same is true for offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Kevin Wilson.But Wilson sees the strength in the tight end room returning from a season ago, and he said the battle won’t come down strictly to choosing the top player at the position.“If the tight end position is better, and their skill set says they can do a lot of jobs, now we change formations, but they get on the field,” Wilson said. “It’s not like we’re trying to have more tight ends because the receiver position is not gonna be strong. The receiver position is gonna be strong. It’s just our tight end position is getting stronger that they can get on the field more.”The wide receiver room lost its veteran trio of Parris Campbell, Terry McLaurin and Johnnie Dixon, but held on to a new senior group of Austin Mack, K.J. Hill and Binjimen Victor, a sophomore receiver who made a impact at the end of this past season in Chris Olave as well as a new addition in freshman Garrett Wilson, a five-star recruit.There’s still depth, but the tight end position has a chance to adapt, specifically through Ruckert.Ruckert has been taking some snaps at H-back during spring practices, a position that was majorly held by Campbell in 2018 and has been used with Hill and junior running back Demario McCall.The freshman tight end had one catch for 13 yards after seeing action in 12 games for the Buckeyes this past season.“We’re just trying new things, new offense, and I’m not gonna say I expected it, but we’ve talked about it before, and I’m excited to keep it going,” Ruckert said. “I’m just trying to go play, so whatever they want me to do, I’ll just go play.”Wilson described Ruckert as the tight end with the most upside of the group, saying Farrell is the most consistent but “not flashy,” while Berry is the strongest and most dynamic in the room.Having this type of depth at the position could open up the opportunity for production at tight end that Ohio State has not seen since well before the Urban Meyer era.But with uncertainty at quarterback, depth at wide receiver and an offense that is yet to cement its identity, only time will tell if the added year of experience will be enough to make all the difference.“You end up not only competing by your position, but you end up competing by personnel groupings,” Day said. “If the second tight end is better than the third receiver, then we’re gonna see two tight ends in the game, and we’ve been messing around with some of that this spring, and some of it has looked pretty good.”
On April 2, OCP Group, whose history is closely linked with that of the port, joined the Casablanca Port Promotion Association in celebrating the centenary of the port of Casablanca. As a major operator in the economic and social development of modern Morocco, OCP took the opportunity to tell through its own evolution, this centenary, also using this occasion to pay tribute to the Moroccan women and men who have been striving for many years for the success of the port. OCP is the world’s largest exporter of phosphate rock and phosphoric acid, and one of the world’s largest fertiliser producers.OCP notes that “founded in 1913, the port of Casablanca is considered a figurehead of the country’s maritime activity. Given its geographical location, the port has always played a crucial role in OCP’s activity as a first and most important gateway to the whole world, since its first phosphate shipment.” Today phosphates represent about one quarter of Moroccan exports. “Besides, the effective contribution of OCP in the development of the port activity must also be highlighted since OCP runs the phosphates terminal, whose capacity is currently estimated at 18 Mt.”As a global leader in the market for phosphate and its derivatives, OCP has been a key player in the international market since its founding in 1920. Present across the value chain, OCP extracts, markets and sells phosphate and its derivatives, phosphoric acid and fertilisers.OCP is involved in all aspects of value-creation in the phosphate industry: extraction and ore processing, transforming the raw material into an intermediate liquid, phosphoric acid, and producing finished products by condensing and granulating the acid or by purifying it to make fertilizers and purified phosphoric acid.The variety and quality of phosphate sources found in Morocco are among the best in the world and ensure the richness of the products. OCP’s business strategy is based on developing a portfolio of innovative and quality products that can be adapted to diverse soil and plant varieties. OCP’s large industrial capacity, coupled with its flexible production system, ensure an optimal cost structure.
British Steel has secured a major tophat shaft guide contract to help service the African mining industry. It will see the company supply South African steel manufacturer Robor with its premium tophat shaft guides – hoisting systems used in underground mining operations to guide cages and skips in vertical mine shafts. The guides are exclusively made by British Steel.Colin Mawdsley, British Steel Technical Sales Manager Special Profiles, said: “This is excellent news and we’re delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Robor. We’ve been working with the manufacturers of mining equipment for many years and know that equipment must be carefully designed and built to meet exacting demands. Customers rely on our steel to deliver the performance they need, and this is precisely what our tophat shaft guides do. We’ve worked alongside Robor for over 36 years, supplying large quantity orders for mining projects across the world, the majority being in Southern Africa. This agreement will enable us to provide more mining companies with one of our premium products.”British Steel’s tophat shaft guides offer many benefits including easier installation and reduced maintenance. Their properties, including close-dimensional control and straightness, mean less swing in the shaft and a smoother, faster lift. Tophat sections generally last for the life of the mine.Colin said: “Current market conditions mean there are fewer new mines being developed, and as a result, the focus is shifting towards prolonging and maintaining the life of older, existing mine shafts. This means mining companies are seeking smaller quantity orders of tophats, which aren’t cost effective for us to produce. In order to meet market demands, we’ll supply Robor with bulk quantities of shaft guides that will be held as retail stock. Having readily available stock offers customers the opportunity to buy reduced quantities on a short lead-time which is a huge advantage for smaller projects.”British Steel’s special profiles are used in underground and surface mining operations, with its profiles being used in mine infrastructure and a vast array of mining machinery and vehicles. The steel for the profiles is made at its headquarters in Scunthorpe before being rolled at the Special Profiles Mill at Skinningrove, Teesside.Gordon Gilmer, CEO at Robor, said; “We’re delighted to reach this agreement with British Steel after many years working together. We look forward to using our African market knowledge and logistics expertise to maximise tophat sales to the African mining industry.”
IT IS POSSIBLE that Elverys Sports may not have to impose job losses after an interim examiner was appointed yesterday, a retail expert has said.Speaking to RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Dublin Institute of Technology lecturer Damien O’Reilly said that one of the possible buyers of the chain may alter the company’s business model, redistributing staff.It has been reported by Mike Ashley of the UK Sports Direct chain has expressed interest in bidding for Elverys.“If he were to take over the Elverys group,” O’Reilly said, “there would not be necessarily any job losses.”While stores would be closed down, other “larger format” stores may be opened.Elverys Sports currently employs more than 600 staff in 56 stores.RTÉ reports that the receivership came about due following a petition from NAMA, the company’s largest secured creditor. A planned receivership fell through, leading to the appointment of an examiner.Read: This TD claims his bill could save thousands of jobs – and create thousands more >

See It Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us).

It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. Sprint The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. $210 at Best Buy I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $999 Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) See It Read the Rylo camera preview See It Tags An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130.

Set for release Aug. 8, The Kitchen stars Tiffany Haddish, Melissa McCarthy and Elizabeth Moss as wives of Irish mobsters in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s. When their husbands get arrested, the three women begin taking over the crime operations to survive. CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

Share your voice HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) TV and Movies,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales.
