Feds decide Delta importing Bombardier jets from Canada won

International Trade Commission ruled Friday.

The Commerce Department had threatened tariffs that would have quadrupled the cost of C Series jets that Delta ordered. Boeing had complained that Canada unfairly subsidized Bombardier, which could then sell the jets at prices below cost.

The commission was weighing tariffs geared to offset what an estimated 212.39% subsidy to build the planes and a 79.82% dumping margin that the department determined in December. industry.” Chairman Rhonda Schmidtlein, David Johanson, Irving Williamson and Meredith Broadbent each voted against Boeing. Department of Commerce has determined are subsidized and sold at less than fair value,” the commission said in a statement.

“As a result of the (commission’s) negative determinations, no anti dumping or countervailing duty orders will be issued.”

Bombardier issued a statement calling the decision “a victory for innovation, competition, and the rule of law.”

“The C Series is the most innovative and efficient new aircraft in a generation,” the company said. “With this matter behind us, we are moving full speed ahead with finalizing our partnership with Airbus,” which partnered with Bombardier to help manufacture the planes in Alabama.

Boeing vowed to continue to document the damage from subsidies and dumped pricing. small single aisle airplane market,” Boeing said in a statement. aerospace industry, and we are feeling the effects of those unfair business practices in the market every day.”

Delta executives said repeatedly that they wanted the smaller, quieter, fuel efficient planes, but that they didn’t expect to pay the tariffs. traveling public access to the state of the art 110 seat CS100 aircraft when Boeing offers no viable alternative.” The carrier said it looks forward to introducing the planes to its fleet.

The dispute had threatened a broader trade war. President Trump pulled out of the Trans Pacific Partnership of 12 nations and threatened to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement. On Tuesday, the administration imposed tariffs on imported solar energy components and large washing machines.

Delta announced plans last year to buy 75 of the planes with 109 seats each. But Boeing challenged the sale aggressively, arguing that Canada,

its province of Quebec, and the United Kingdom subsidized Bombardier with a combined $3 billion to sell planes at less than the cost to produce them.

Boeing said the 737 Max 7, which is now the company smallest passenger jet, is roughly comparable starting with 138 seats. Boeing has projected a market for 29,000 narrow body planes over the next 20 years, and sped up production of the 737.

The perceived threat to Boeing wasn so much from the current planes, which are smaller than Boeing smallest passenger jet, but from the prospect that Bombardier would develop larger planes to compete against versions of the 737. airlines like Delta are among the biggest and most respected airlines in the world, which could spur other carriers to buy Bombardier planes.

Peter Lichtenbaum, a Covington Burling lawyer representing Bombardier, argued there were no lost sales or lost revenues for Boeing from the Delta sale.

Airbus plans to build some of the planes at its new factory in Mobile, Ala.

But Boeing has argued that Airbus and Bombardier would import fuselages and wings, and simply assemble them in Alabama.

Airbus CEO Tom Enders tweeted that the company would “carry on with full steam.”

The dispute threatened a broader trade war. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he told President Trump in October that the proposed tariff was something that is warranted and something we look very negatively upon. In December, Canada scrapped plans to buy 18 Boeing Super Hornet fight jets.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who was concerned about losing 4,000 Bombardier jobs in Northern Ireland, warned in September about growing protectionism worldwide. She tweeted Friday that the decision was “good news for British industry.”

Foreign workers not from Mexico would pay for barrier

Reps. Kevin Yoder, R Kan., and Tulsi Gabbard, D Hawaii, have shared details of their plan,
Foreign workers not from Mexico would pay for barrier
which would include the fees for green cards deal for tech workers, with the White House and Republican leaders. They’re now collecting signatures on a letter obtained by McClatchy to Senate and House leaders that outlines the proposal. Yoder told McClatchy they’re leaving what type of border security measures the funding would provide up to the negotiating teams, but said the goal is to help the negotiators reach a deal that would protect the Dreamers, but not leave out H 1B holders.

Yoder said he met with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Legislative Director Marc Short last month about the legislation and since then has shared more details about security funding. He’s also met with House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise to discuss the proposal. But he said the response has largely been that they’re interested in the proposal but fear it will only complicate an already difficult negotiation process by adding new elements.

Auto Express’s reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.The 500 is maturing like a mid priced wine, because Driver Power 2015 sees the 2007 model leap 27 places overall from its 2014 ranking, to 87th and this is also after finishing 142nd in 2013. That’s not the whole story though, because previously the 500 was in decline, having reached a peak 55th place in 2010. It’s a consistently inconsistent car, with survey results showing owners like its running costs, ease of driving and tech, but struggle with its cramped driving position, poor ride quality and sluggish performance.Several minor problems which fixed under warranty after some disagreements! biggest issue is the lack of abarth dealers mean you have to travel miles to sort a problem and often they refuse and say its out of warranty. For a hot hatch amazing! dont think the car gets enough credibility for how all round it is. using on the motorway easily gets more than 40mpg in a car designed to be fun and pretty quick as well!

Fashion branches out as curvy girls pursue style

Fashion branches out as curvy girls pursue style

DENVER On a wall inside a new store in Southwest Plaza near Denver hangs a fashionable assortment of women s clothes. Maxi dresses, cotton skirts and jersey tops are in bright solid colors, geometric prints and polka dots.

What makes the designs a little different from other spring offerings at the mall are that the looks from AnnaFesta are in sizes 10 24. And while jewelry and handbags are also offered at the shop, Connexions is selling sculpture, fine art and gourmet foods, too. Showcasing her line in a market like environment is a bit of an experiment for designer Anne Fanganello, a Denverite who three years ago opened her own business after spending 18 years in the swirl of the New York designer fashion industry.

Fanganello, 42, has been selling her seasonal AnnaFesta collections in boutiques and was about to go for a wholesale push when the Connexions opportunity arose.

As Fanganello has discovered, plus size fashion is challenging. Despite their growing numbers and the fact that the average American woman now wears a size 14, plus size customers don t have abundant choices in traditional stores, so they tend to do a lot of their shopping online.

Plus sized customers say they re dissatisfied with the shopping process and selection. In a September 2012 study by NPD Group Inc., 63 percent of the plus size women surveyed said that shopping for clothing for themselves is more stressful than shopping for regular size clothing and 62 percent reported having trouble finding women s plus sized clothing styles they want. Nearly as many survey respondents, 56 percent, said it was hard to find plus size clothing with the same level of quality as misses or traditional size clothing.

Pat Schuessler, 52, one of the vendors at Connexions, says shopping frustrates her. She has lost about 60 pounds in the past year or so, but is discouraged that despite the weight loss, the selection of plus size clothes that fit her new size 18 figure is still often frumpy in comparison to what her smaller size friends are offered.

It s a self perpetuating problem because if women don t buy, retailers won t expand. Sales of plus size clothing are about $14 billion annually, down from about $17 billion several years ago, according to Marshal Cohen, NPD s chief industry analyst. Growth is flat, whereas women s sportswear is up 4 percent, he says. If consumers don t respond quickly enough, retailers will expand into other areas.

Still another 2012 survey, this time from Mintel, found that plus size customers prefer to shop in a store with a plus size department but that also carries non plus size clothing, such as a department store. And that finding went across all income groups.

That s a customer like Jaye Gipson of Chicago, who was shopping in Macy s earlier this week and had good words for the retailer.

They ve gotten a much more modern selection now, with brands like Alfani and Charter Club, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren, said Gipson, 44, a bookkeeper whose Curvatude blog has thousands of followers.

Gipson, who wears a size 18 or 20, says she has worn AnnaFesta designs as well and appreciates the quality. So many of the plus size brands aren t as well made, she said.

The plus size customer is used to having to search for fashion, Gipson says. The problem is that these women have been ignored for so long, they don t even know what options exist. You go on Eloquii s site right now and you ll see that some people just found it and are upset when they find out it is closing. (In late 2011, The Limited opened its online plus size division Eloquii. Prices on the current line have been deeply discounted and the company has announced it will no longer produce the line.)

Gipson says brands from the United Kingdom are currently a hit with plus size shoppers, herself included. Brands like Asos and Simply Be have a lot of great options, she says.

The hassle of shopping online is that full figured women come in a wide variety of body types so it s challenging to locate things that fit. They have to order a lot of clothes to find a few that will suit their bodies and then have to send back the rest, Gipson says.

I m about showing off what I have, says Gipson, noting that she approaches fashion, beauty and lifestyle from a plus size perspective that encourages women to live out loud and make most of their bodies and their lives.

While Gibbons, 31, has worked with mainstream retailers such as Lands End and appreciates the company s efforts, she s not afraid to push the boundaries by doing things like posting photos of herself in plus size bikini separates on the Internet. The Huffington Post picked up the recent report, and now Good Morning America is going to air a spot on her bikini search, Gibbons says. (By the way, Gibbons found only the Old Navy and Lands End suits worked for her body type, but she s continuing to look.)

I ve been plus size since I was in elementary school, and back then, fashion was not our friend, Gibbons says. I d have to shop in the women s section with my mom.

She s now a mother of three herself and says fashion options have improved, but there s still a long way to go.

Great cuts, high quality, on trend styling are needed, Gibbons says. We re a new generation of gorgeous women who own our curves. We have money to spend. Stop designing for our mothers!

Anne Fanganello started designing clothes somewhat out of necessity. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 and gained weight during treatment. That made wearing high fashion styles difficult given that she was a size 12 in the skinny world of New York fashion. She was able to get some of her clothes cut larger because she worked in the business, but found plus size offerings in stores lacking.

Returning to Denver in 2007 to take a break from fashion, she began working as an event planner. The job required good clothes, so she invested in a nice dress only to see another woman wearing the same thing at one of her parties. Her next step was to design her own outfits.

She drew from her experience leading the technical design and operations team at Nanette Lepore, where she oversaw fitting, patternmaking and sewing operation.

Her goal? Make clothes that fit and flatter a plus size figure, not hide it.

The lines and details draw your eye up and in, the designer says. You ll look two inches taller and two inches narrower.

Fanganello says she was happy to work behind the scenes in fashion until she saw what women needed.

I was doing it for myself, but then I noticed it was a trend, she says. Younger people want sexier clothes, no matter their size. You have to be proud of your body.

Feds warn of counterfeit goods before the holiday shopping rush

Feds warn of counterfeit goods before the holiday shopping rush

(WIVB) The problem of counterfeit goods reaches far beyond popular handbags.

The business of trafficking phony products is a growing problem here in the United States. Customs and Border Protection in the Buffalo area.

“You got to be an educated consumer yourself,” said Kevin Kelly, special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations.

“The estimated industry loss of revenue to United States businesses annually is $700 billion,” Kelly said.

Fake stuff is out there; everything from high end electronics to toothpaste and deodorant.

“Some of which are imitations. Some of which are just very poor quality, and some of which are just outright dangerous,” Brophy explained during a news conference outside a Buffalo Sabres store at the KeyBank Center. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. explained that sometimes the proceeds from counterfeit goods don’t even end up in the country where they’re made.

“They funneled through different organizations,” Kennedy said. “We had a number of cases where the money, we were able to trace it right to registered terrorist organizations.”

“It may seem that you get a shirt that’s close enough to an authentic Sabres jersey, but you’re really doing multiple harms beyond what you might even imagine in terms of not only the manufacturers themselves but maybe the conditions in which they’re manufactured,” Kennedy added.

According to a 2016 report from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the country responsible for the biggest share of counterfeit production is China; almost two thirds of fake goods originate there, the report found.

“In reality, if it’s a popular holiday gift, chances are there’s a counterfeit of it,” said Kelly.

Kelly says consumers who purchase counterfeit goods could be funding criminal organizations “at the expense of American jobs and the United States economy.”

“Many Americans more and more are being tricked by criminal organizations that traffick counterfeit products into believing they are purchasing legitimate goods on legitimate websites,” he added.

Kelly and other federal law enforcement officials say consumers are the first line of defense when it comes to the knockoff problem.

They advise consumers to watch where products are purchased online and only trust familiar retailers before ordering.

“If the price seems just too good to be true, it probably is,” said Rose Brophy.

field fight will see them miss Blackburn Rovers clash

PRESTON duo Eoin Doyle and Jermaine Beckford will miss the Blackburn Rovers game next Saturday, with their manager branding them an “embarrassment” after an on field scuffle at Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.

Both Doyle and Beckford were sent off, and could be set for three match bans, following their actions late in the game as Preston slipped to a 2 1 defeat at Hillsborough.

In remarkable scenes, the two strikers, who had been sent on as second half substitutes, came together in the closing minutes, pushing each other in the chest before being pulled apart by the team mates.

Fight! Preston team mates Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle are both sent off for clashing in the side’s defeat at Hillsborough.

“In 30 years a player and manager I have never seen an incident like that between two team mates,” Grayson told the Lancashire Evening Post.
