Schoolgirls are protesting after skirts are banned from autumn as they’re not gender neutral

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. SCHOOLGIRLS are protesting after being told skirts will be banned from autumn as they are not gender neutral. A letter sent to parents from the headmaster explained they are banning skirts with the aim to create a gender-neutral uniform and to stop girls wearing girls wearing skirts at inappropriate lengths. “Some people say that wearing a skirt makes you look like a tart and things like that. It’s just a piece of clothing, I don’t understand.” One of the mums from the school, complained: “I think it’s disgusting and actually sexist. They’re not going to go and force the boys to wear skirts. “Women from all the generations before this one wore skirts without any problems, what’s changed now? “What’s really annoying is that the first any of us heard about the change was on social media. We didn’t get the letter until a day later.” Exceed Academies Trust, which runs the school said: “A letter has been sent to parents this week and will be followed up before the end of the year...

Having a car jack in your vehicle in case of emergency can mean the difference between 20 minutes to change a flat tire and being stranded on the road, waiting for help. Whether you go off-road with your vehicle and need to lift it frequently, or just want something in case of an emergency, we’re here to help you find the best electric car jack for your needs. This type of jack is usually hydraulic-powered and resembles the shape of a short and stubby bottle. Because of this compact design, they’re desirable for larger vehicles where clearance isn’t necessarily an issue. Though they’re not ergonomically shaped for easy storage, they do often have a higher weight limit than your typical electric floor jack.  You’ll likely see a lot of mechanics using—and owning—this type of car jack. Though it’s manually operated, it works on the same basic principle as all jacks; it uses a mounting point and a lifting system to hold the car during a lift. Floor jacks typically roll on four wheels and come with a detachable handle that pivots up and down to lift the car.  Scissor jacks a...

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free

Business : Sur ses 944,2 millions d’euros de chiffre d’affaires, 321 millions sont réalisés par Free Mobile, dont la part de marché au 3e trimestre atteint 11% avec 7,435 millions d’abonnés. Le groupe Iliad, maison-mère de Free, se porte toujours aussi bien. Au 3e trimestre, son chiffre d’affaires a atteint 944,2 millions d’euros, soit une hausse d’un peu plus de 15% sur un an. Sur les 9 premiers mois de 2013, la croissance de l’opérateur est de 22,5% à 2,7 milliards d’euros de CA. C’est dans le secteur de la téléphonie mobile que la croissance est la plus forte au dernier trimestre (+34,7%), avec 321 millions de chiffre d’affaires dégagés. Free Mobile ne communique en revanche pas sur sa rentabilité. En termes de conquête, le 4e opérateur mobile a attiré 640.000 nouveaux abonnés, portant le parc total de clients de Free Mobile à 7,435 millions. Cela représente 11% de part de marché. « Le Groupe a accéléré sa conquête d’abonnés sur les utilisateurs ayant une consommation modérée (forfait mobile à 2€/mois) » commente Iliad. Mais si Free a continué de gagner massivement des clients, Reuters précise néanmoins qu’il s’agit du « nombre de conquêtes d’abonnés le plus faible dep...

Home Health Care: Finding the Right Help for Seniors

When it comes to home-care workers—the aides who provide in-home personal assistance and health care support to seniors—Brenda Case has seen it all. Case, age 55, a real estate agent in Grand Junction, Colo., was for several years a full-time caregiver for her mother, who had severe rheumatoid arthritis. And in that time, a constantly rotating cast of home care workers came in and out of the home that Case shared with her mother. There was a nurse who was wonderful. There was a bath aide who never came to work at all. And there was an occupational therapist who insisted that Case’s mother should practice job skills such as moving coins from one bucket to another—even though the patient had no intention of returning to work. “My 70-year-old mother didn’t need to go out and get a job—she needed to lift her arms to the microwave and get a cup of tea,” Case says. “But that was never part of the regime.” Turnover was high, Case says, and she sometimes switched agencies in order to retain the aides she liked—or avoid the ones she didn’t. In the three years leading up to her mother’s death in 2015, she says, she worked with seven different home care agencies. Seniors and their familie...

Your American Car Is Probably Not as American as You Think

The latest version of Cars.com’s annual list of the most “American” cars assembled in the U.S. came out on Tuesday. But you may be surprised how little it takes to be considered really American: just 55% of the total value of the car parts is enough to qualify. And, because the data comes from reports mandated by the American Automobile Labeling Act of 1992, there’s additional hidden confusion. The legislation lumps together parts and content from the U.S. and Canada, so the strictly U.S. portion could be less. “Automakers build plenty of vehicles here, but a lot of cars here are less American than you think,” said Cars.com senior consumer affairs editor Kelsey Mays. For example, the iconic Ford F-150? It’s 56% American content, according to the study. “GM SUVs are built near Dallas with US engines and transmissions, but only 41%,” and so aren’t even on the list. More “American,” in terms of total dollar value of their parts, are the numbers 1, 2, and 3 on the list: the Jeep Cherokee, made by Italy-based Fiat Chrysler, and the Honda Odyssey and Ridgeline, all three of which come in at 70%. Note, though, that the dollar value focus can mean some very expensive parts, like the com...

Drinks Maker Diageo Makes Spirited Push in India – India Real Time

BANGALORE, India—United Spirits Ltd., India’s largest spirits maker, two years ago promised BN Raghuveer some new signage to spruce up the front of his liquor store. His shop, Cyber Wines, never got its face-lift. The sales executive who had made the promise had left the company, and there was no record of the agreement to be found, Mr. Raghuveer said. That kind of disappointment, he recalled, was typical before Diageo PLC acquired a majority stake in United Spirits. Now, he said, the Indian company pays him faster and orders and agreements are documented. Alcohol Making Machine Cleaning up relationships with retailers is one of the ways Diageo, the world’s biggest spirits company, hopes to outflank competitors such as Pernod Ricard SA. India’s expanding middle class, young population and love of hard liquor increases its appeal to global distillers, despite a patchwork of regulations that make the world’s largest whiskey market by volume also one of the toughest places to sell alcohol. Over the past decade, Diageo made a handful of faltering attempts to enter the Indian whiskey market. Then, in 2013 and 2014, it amassed a 54.78% stake in United Spirits, whose distribution netw...

Honda recalls 1.2 mn more vehicles with dangerous air bags

A type of Takata air bag inflator once thought to be safe has now come under scrutiny after a crash and explosion in Maryland injured the driver of a Honda minivan. The incident forced Honda on Tuesday to recall about 1.2 million vehicles in North and Central America from the 2001 to 2016 model years to replace inflators that had not been included in the massive string of Takata recalls for air bags that can hurl shrapnel into the passenger compartment. Takata used ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion and inflate air bags in a collision. But the chemical can deteriorate when exposed to high temperatures and humidity and blow apart a metal canister, spewing out shrapnel. At least 23 people have been killed by the company’s inflators and hundreds more injured. The inflators in the Tuesday recall contain a moisture-absorbing chemical called a desiccant that was added to keep the ammonium nitrate stable. They were believed to be safe, and were used to replace older inflators under recalls that began in 2014. But Honda and the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that a crash on Jan. 19, 2018 involving a 2004 Honda Odyssey initiated an investigation...
