Man behind Burlington Ont Christmas display dies after ladder falls from roof

first_imgAn Ontario man known for decking his house in brilliant Christmas lights for more than three decades died this week after falling from his roof while tending to the annual display, his family said as members of the community mourned his death.The family of Douglas Musson of Burlington, Ont., said the 82-year-old had been trying to fix a leak on Monday when the ladder he was on fell.“He was up on a ladder trying to find out why water was dripping on the pathway which might drip on visitors to the display, when the ladder fell,” the family said in a statement on its website. “He died in hospital.”Musson began decorating his home with lights in Calgary before moving to Burlington in 1976, the family said. He had been adding more lights and figures to his display each year, and eventually the home on Spruce Avenue became known as Burlington’s “Griswold house,” after the brightly lit home in the film “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”“Our family is devastated. I debated even turning on the lights but decided he would want them on and he worked hard on making all of the displays,” Musson’s son Scott wrote in the online postScott Musson, 56, said in an interview Wednesday evening that his family thought they would have to cancel the Christmas display next year because his father was the sole provider.“Because of the support we are getting, both financially and mentally, we need to continue (the display),” he said. “Right now my plan is, whatever it takes, I want to do them next year. … We don’t want to disappoint so many people who have been so helpful.”Scott Musson, who has been unable to work since suffering a heart attack two years ago, said his family is touched by all the people who have visited the house, dropping off envelopes, candles and flowers.“It’s been unbelievable, we’re been almost overwhelmed with it,” Scott said. “It’s almost been a full day today just trying to handle that aspect, which in a way is a good thing because it keeps our minds off of things.“We knew lots of people came to see the lights, but he had no idea what it meant to a lot of people.”He described his father as a family man who would lend a hand to anyone in need. He and his father also created an elaborate display that included a motorcycle to honour his other son Cam, who died in a motorcycle accident.Scott said his dad was “helpful, concerning and caring” person. He says he thinks that is one of the reasons so many people have reached out to his family.Burlington Mayor Rick Goldring was one of several community members expressing their condolences to Musson’s family.“This is very sad news for Burlington and our residents because the Mussons have been lighting up their house for decades in the city for decades,” Goldring said in an interview Wednesday. “It has been a tradition for so many families to visit the Musson family’s home every year — they were called the Griswolds of Burlington.”Since Monday, GoFundMe pages have been set up to raise money for the family, with one raising more than $9,000 by Wednesday afternoon.The page description for one of the fundraisers asks people to donate to help the family and also for “the hope to keep the lights aglow in memory of the man who made everyone’s Christmas around him merry and bright.”“Visiting this home has been a tradition since I was a little girl and it breaks my heart to hear of this tragedy in the community, and especially so close to Christmas,” one donor wrote online.An obituary posted online said a visitation service for Musson is scheduled for Dec. 27 and a funeral will be held the next day.Musson is survived by his wife, Joanne, and children Scott, Gary and Debra.last_img read more

EU hails draft deal to boost US beef imports

BRUSSELS — The European Commission says it’s reached an agreement with the United States to allow more hormone-free U.S. beef onto the European market.The commission said Friday the “in-principle” deal would allow U.S. farmers to export 35,000 tons of beef to the bloc. The increased tonnage will be phased in over seven years. Other countries will share a further 10,000-ton beef quota.It could end a long-running dispute over EU beef import restrictions.EU Agriculture Commissioner Phil Hogan says “the agreement will not change the overall volume, quality or safety of the beef imported into the EU, which will remain in compliance with the high European standards.”The deal must still be endorsed by EU member states and the U.S., and be approved by the European Parliament.The Associated Press read more

Surge in Britishbuilt vehicles with Britishmade components

New report reveals big jump in demand from British vehicle manufacturers for British-made components.Domestic component suppliers saw a 19% rise in sales to British vehicle manufacturers in 2014.Figures represent a turnaround for UK automotive supply chain, and a boost to local companies.British cars are being made with more British-sourced components as the UK automotive industry’s renaissance continues apace, new research reveals today. Figures from a new Automotive Council report show that domestic component makers sold 19% more products to UK vehicle producers last year than in 2013.The figures are an important step in the right direction for the UK automotive supply base. Currently around one third of the components in a UK-built car are domestically sourced, compared to more than 90% in the mid-1970s. However, vehicle manufacturing in the UK is undergoing a renaissance – British car production has increased by more than 50% since 2009 – and this is creating new opportunities for domestic suppliers.Business Secretary Vince Cable said, “Our automotive industry has seen a resurgence in recent years and that success means work of some £1 billion has returned to the UK. This is testament to the strength and capability of our supply chain manufacturers and will no doubt lead to new jobs and further growth.“This has not happened by accident but is the result of government and industry working together through the Automotive Council to strengthen our supply chain – meaning an increasing number of parts made in this country are contained in vehicles rolling off UK production lines.”Nifco – a plastics supplier to vehicles makers based in Stockton, North East England – was on the brink of closure in 2004. However, the business has since turned around with increased demand and funding support leading to the construction of two new factories in 2012 and 2014.Mike Matthews, Managing Director, Nifco UK Ltd, said, “There is a renewed optimism and confidence in the UK automotive industry and this is reflected in our future projected growth. Our order book is full for the next five years and we have a clear strategy to grow the business into a £75 million company by 2016 and £100 million by 2018. We are moving our offer on, working closer than ever with our customers to develop products that help them to innovate.”The new Luton-built Vauxhall Vivaro van is another example of the recent upturn in local supply. The latest model, which started production last year, contains more than twice the number of British-sourced components at 40% than its predecessor’s 16%. This means an extra £600 million will be spent with British suppliers, allowing local companies to expand – and in some cases it has saved whole factories.Calsonic Kansei Europe is a global supplier of automotive components such as interior mouldings, air conditioning and exhaust systems, employing more than 1,700 employees across four manufacturing locations in the UK. Significant recent investment into expansion at sites in Sunderland and Wales has secured and created 351 jobs.James Davies, CEO and Chairman, Calsonic Kansei Europe, said, “Today’s report from the Automotive Council confirms what we are all experiencing – the increasing success story of the UK automotive supply chain. Calsonic Kansei’s ability to produce high quality and cutting edge products at a price which is competitive is opening up exciting opportunities to export our product to a global market.”Much of this success can be attributed to UKTI’s Automotive Investment Organisation (AIO), which was set up in 2013 to bring more foreign investment into the UK automotive sector. Since its inception, AIO has secured or created more than 10,000 jobs, and delivered more than £768 million investment into the UK supply chain.*Joe Greenwell, AIO Chief Executive, said, “This is fantastic news for UK automotive. As well as showing that the UK continues to grow as a serious global automotive destination, it demonstrates the dramatic power of foreign investment, which has helped to revitalise the UK supply chain and secure critical jobs and growth for the UK. We at UKTI will continue to work hard with our partners to address the growing opportunity identified in the report.”Mike Hawes, Chief Executive of The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), said, “A strong domestic supply chain is critical to the success of the UK automotive sector. We want British suppliers to capitalise on the renaissance in UK vehicle manufacturing, and these figures show that positive strides are already being made.“The work of the Automotive Council is central to this progress, and will continue to be while many component manufacturers still face issues such as access to finance and lack of incentives to innovate.”Today’s report, Growing the Automotive Supply Chain – The Opportunity Ahead, identifies a further £4 billion-per-year opportunity for UK automotive suppliers to expand their business in the coming years.To download the full report, click here.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Ohio State mens soccer team rolls over Dayton 20

OSU senior midfielder Zach Mason (7) prepares to kick the ball during a game against Penn State on Sept. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU tied 1-1. Credit: Ed MomotThe Ohio State men’s soccer team earned its second victory of the 2015 regular season against Dayton in front of a home crowd on Friday night. The Buckeyes came out of the gates firing shots immediately at the Flyers.OSU earned the first corner kick of the half in the seventh minute, but OSU senior defender and co-captain Liam Doyle’s shot was cleared away.Following Doyle’s kick, a header by senior midfielder Kyle Culbertson went high over the bar.In the 15th minute, OSU junior forward Yaw Amankwa dribbled in but his shot was blocked. Freshman midfielder Abdi Mohamed followed up Amankwa’s shot with a 25-yard kick, but barely missed the near post.The battle between both squads then became extremely physical.A yellow card was issued against Dayton junior goalkeeper Justin Saliba after he committed a hard foul against OSU junior forward Christian Soldat in the 21st minute. Doyle attempted the subsequent penalty kick for the Buckeyes, but Saliba blocked his shot. Soldat popped out with the rebound, but his shot flew high above the net.In the 30th minute, Amankwa sent a pass to Mohamed for a good look at the net, but Mohamed’s shot hit right off the crossbar.With one minute left in the first half, Amankwa headed in a loose ball in front of the goal, giving the Scarlet and Gray a one-point lead over the Flyers. Amankwa’s shot was his first career goal as a Buckeye.“Being in the right position at the right time, I was fortunate enough to be there and score a goal,” Amankwa said.OSU led Dayton 1-0 at the end of the first half.The Buckeyes came out in the second half looking to add some insurance, and got it when Soldat knocked in his first goal of the year with an assist by Culbertson in the 67th minute, increasing OSU’s lead to 2-0.“I know I’m a small guy so I’m not going to be the one getting up and challenging for it,” Soldat said. “Kyle’s pretty consistent with his throwing, so I just try and get it right where I think it’s going to drop and hopefully get a tap in.”As frustration arose among the Flyers, yellow cards were issued to Dayton, allowing the Buckeyes to earn a free kick in the 72nd minute. Doyle’s 35-yard kick was missed, keeping the score at 2-0.The Flyers continued to try and tally their first goal, as they fired a shot in the 77th minute, but OSU redshirt senior goalkeeper Chris Froschauer, who played his first three collegiate seasons at Dayton prior to transferring OSU, came across with the diving save.The Buckeyes managed to keep the Flyers off the board for the remainder of the game, sealing the home victory.Amankwa and Soldat made huge impacts for the team in Friday’s game.“We learned tonight that Yaw is a great center-forward,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “He is strong, physically, and is difficult to deal with.”Bluem also expressed how much the team missed Soldat after he went down in the game against Navy because of an ankle injury. Bleum said the team struggled without Soldat because of his absence. “He is a very smart attacking player that opens up a lot of space for other players because of his runs,” Bluem said about Soldat.OSU improves to 2-4-2 overall, while the Flyers fall to 5-4-1.The Buckeyes are scheduled to return to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Tuesday to take on Louisville at 7 p.m. read more

NHS to launch national crutch amnesty amid concern equipment is going to

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. A scheme at Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust reuses walking aids that patients have returned, such as frames and crutches.When returned, the items are reused or recycled; last year 21 per cent of crutches and 61 per cent of walking frames were returned. This generated savings of more than £25,000, officials said. Rachel Power, the chief executive of the Patients Association, said: “Patients are often bewildered that the NHS does not ask for equipment back when they have finished using it, and sometimes even find that the NHS can make it bafflingly hard when they try to return it. This can raise questions in people’s minds about the efficiency of the NHS, and even undermine confidence in it – all completely needlessly.”“We’d like to see an NHS where patients are able to return equipment that is no longer needed, and where equipment will be sensibly recycled and reused when it can be,” she said. The NHS is to launch a national “crutch amnesty” to deal with concern that perfectly good medical equipment is going to waste cluttering up homes across the country. Patients are being urged to return wheelchairs, walking frames and other aids to local hospitals, as part of a war on waste across the NHS. Ministers are concerned that hospitals do little to track down such equipment – and even refuse to use unwanted aids when patients attempt to return them.Too often items were thrown away after only being used once, Steve Barclay, the health minister, said. The minister said thousands of crutches, wheelchairs and walking aids were being binned, wasting NHS resources.He urged hospitals to follow those with schemes that ensure items are properly reused, or passed on to charities that can make good use of them.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––He said: “In too many instances… medical equipment is being used once and then thrown away at a time when the public is increasingly aware of the impact of waste on the environment. “Patients should be able to return the countless pairs of perfectly good crutches sitting unused in the corner of living rooms across the country and know they will be put to good use helping others, either in the NHS or elsewhere through charity donations.”  read more

A closer look at Microsofts new multicolored logo

first_imgMicrosoft, for the first time since 1987, has updated the company’s logo. Yes, the venerable, italicized logo with the weird “o” that was introduced in 1987 is dead, replaced by what you see above. It’s a shift that’s in keeping with general trend of Microsoft‘s branding over the past few years.The new logo features two basic components: a symbol on the left and the product name on the right. This is how Microsoft has handled its popular sub-brands in the past, including Xbox and Office, so it doesn’t come as a major surprise even if it is rather devoid of character.On the left is a four-color window in red, green, blue, and yellow. These are, of course, the primary colors plus yellow, which signify strength, simplicity, boldness, and other terms that sounds great in a branding meeting. They are also the colors found in Google’s logo, but Microsoft did go a bit wild with the blue. This shade is lighter than what you’d expect from a normal RGB palette and it’s a call out to both the Windows 8 logo and the particular blue favored by the design language formerly known as Metro. (Of course Google’s new favicon logo is non-primary blue as well but it uses a dustier, less vibrant shade)As for that windows shape, it’s just four squares. So where the Microsoft name was once italicized and Windows 8 icon features what is essentially a heavily italicized window, the new Microsoft symbol has reversed course and gone with a head-on view of a window. This icon forms five squares — this would be great if the company had four product divisions, but sadly it has just three (Microsoft Platform Products and Services, Business, and Entertainment and Devices). This video shows the logo in action and explains three four colors…As you can see in the middle of the video blue is for Windows, red is for Office, green is for Xbox, and yellow is there because a window can’t have three panes. The yellow box could be a conveniently placeholder for another product, but it’s doubtful that anything would become that prominent that quickly. The Windows/Office/Xbox select does, at least, line up with the three divisions listed above.The company’s name is a non-stylized text treatment in a sans-serif font. The type is Segoe, which Microsoft owns — a nice way to save on licensing or commissioning a custom font — and has used before. Segoe was featured in certain Windows 8 UI elements and, while not particularly exciting, shows a respectable bit of dogfooding on Microsoft’s part.The last notable element is the “ft” ligature. This serves as a callback to the previous logo, which also featured it, and is a move that will excite at least a few typography fans. Ligatures between a lower case “f” and “t” combination are common enough, but Microsoft should get points for retaining a bit of the character from their previous logo.via Microsoftlast_img read more

Journalist goes undercover making the iPhone 5 at Foxconn

first_imgThe news feeds will be filled with talk of the iPhone today, and most of it is probably going to be positive. However, the Chinese new agency Shanghai Evening Post has posted a pretty scathing review of the working conditions at Foxconn, and in particular the iPhone 5 production line.The agency managed to get one of its reporters a job working undercover in a Foxconn factory where the iPhone 5 is being manufactured for Apple. He spent 10 days there and then wrote up the entire experience to demonstrate just how bad it is for the thousands of workers Foxconn employs. The agency has timed the release of that report to coincide with the launch of the iPhone 5 today. Here’s a summary of what he experienced.Getting a job at Foxconn seems to be a pretty simple task. You turn up at the factory, ignore anyone offering to fast track you to a job for a few Yuan, and prove you are healthy by answering 30 Yes/No questions which sum up your mental health. After that you get to stay in a cockroach-infested dormitory that smells of sweat and foam and where dirty sheets are the norm. It also appears that windows have had bars put over them in an attempt to cut down on suicides.The contract each worker must sign is minimal. They have to agree to keep everything confidential, and are urged by managers to tick “No” in the sections regarding noise and toxic pollution. The journalist later describes very loud machinery and a strong smell of plastic inside the factory where he worked, making it clear why management was insistent on ticking no on the contract before they start working.Training is a seven day intensive course (by the end of which he was ill) with the main take away being that you do exactly what you are told and nothing else. There’s also details given of 70 ways you can incur a penalty, but only 13 ways to earn a reward.There are plenty of facilities around the Foxconn factories including a canteen, gym, post office, library, a street full of shops, and a bathing room, but the journalist reports that they are all in a very poor condition, although mostly free to use. To release stress lots of Foxconn workers apparently gather in the playground at weekends and dance and shout.It sounds like a depressing situation to be in even before entering the factory, but then things only seem to get worse. The journalist’s one and only task was to mark the back plate of the iPhone 5 using an oil pen. Each plate has to have 4 points marked, and they have to be accurate within 5mm of the target placement. He was repeatedly reprimanded for either marking the points too low or using too much oil.Accuracy is something that comes with experience, and the journalist had to learn fast. He was expected to do a minimum of 5 back plates every minute. So that’s an accurately placed oil pen mark every 3 seconds, with his shift lasting 10 hours without a break. That’s a minimum of 3,000 back plates per shift.The work is clearly very stressful and the pay is terrible. The example the journalist gave was two hours of overtime earning him just $4. Another interesting point he makes is the back plate work he was assigned is usually given to female workers as they are seen as more nimble. However, there aren’t enough workers to fill the positions at the factory as they keep resigning.As well as what are clearly very poor working and living conditions, his account makes it clear labor is still cheaper than automation at Foxconn. The oil pen task could be carried out much more quickly and accurately by a robot, yet Foxconn chooses to employ 48 people working intensively to churn out tens of thousands of these back plates every day. And that’s just one part of the iPhone 5.Will there be a response to this report from Apple? It’s unlikely to be a public one, but I’m sure it will come up in conversation between the two companies once the iPhone 5 has launched later today.Read more at M.I.C.

Gracia I prefer to speak about the penalty

first_imgWatford manager Javi Gracia deflated talks on the controversial decisions that marred his side’s 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday.The Hornets came from behind to secure a draw on the south coast, which saw Gracia’s side climb above Manchester United into seventh on goal difference in the Premier League.“I prefer to speak about the penalty,” the Spaniard disclosed to Sky. “It was first when there were more than 30 minutes left, it could be the second yellow card for that player, a penalty and after that, maybe the game could change.“I didn’t see it from my position, it’s impossible to know what happened.What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“But after asking Chalobah he told me it was clear and maybe changed the game from that moment. But I prefer to support the referee’s decision, it’s difficult their job.”Gracia thought it was a fair result after his team rallied round for a point.“We have won a point,” he said. “It is true, we were improving and at the end of the game we created some chances to win. But I think a draw is fair and Southampton created some chances to score in the first half as well.“And we tried to compete and in the second half we showed character and ambition to get this point and it is important after the game we played today to go back home with one point.”last_img read more

Sadio Mane chooses Liverpools biggest win of the season
