At the time, the governor of Wisconsin announced the plant would be the only LCD production facility not located in Asia.Foxconn told Associated Press more than 500 people will work in the office, which is located 30 miles north of the site of the new factory. The office will also house an innovation centre where engineers will be able to develop new uses for the company’s display technology.When plans to purchase the building were announced in February, Louis Woo, special assistant to Foxconn CEO Terry Gou, said in a statement the deal would “create significant high-value job opportunities and an extensive supply chain supporting our project in Wisconsin.” He added the innovation centre housed in the office would “play an instrumental role in our commitment to create a vibrant 8K and 5G ecosystem in the United States”.Separately, the company launched a new international exchange programme with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to introduce engineering students to LCD fabrication technologies and processes.Foxconn said the programme could eventually be expanded to other universities in the state and across the midwest.

McIlroy shaking things up at Augusta

first_imgAUGUSTA, Ga. – Rory McIlroy may have discovered the reason why he doesn’t yet have a green jacket, why he remains one leg shy of the career Grand Slam, why each year he leaves Augusta National – a course that so perfectly suits his game – scratching his head. Because he needs to relax. That’s not a word often associated with the Masters, but McIlroy sounded Tuesday like a man who is still trying to strike a balance between being prepared and being loose for his shot at history. And so he is shaking things up this year at the Masters. Just about everything, it seems. He switched to a cross-handed putting grip last month. He didn’t make a single scouting trip to Augusta in advance of the tournament. He is using only one ball in practice rounds, instead of hitting multiple shots from the tee boxes, fairways and closely mown areas around the green. Heck, he is even skipping the Par-3 Contest, out of superstition. “I really feel like I play my best golf when I’m more relaxed, when I’m having fun out there and I’m not overdoing it or not overthinking it,” McIlroy said. “It’s a very special event, and obviously it’s different in its own way, but I don’t want to treat it any differently.” But it’s not that simple. The Masters will always be the event on his calendar that is circled – it’s the only piece remaining for him to become just the sixth player to complete the career Grand Slam. McIlroy’s wholesale changes are the product of what transpired last spring, when he arrived at Augusta with so much hype and hoopla following his banner year in 2014. Sure, he finished fourth last year, his best result in seven tries, but he got lapped by Jordan Spieth after going 3 over for his first 27 holes. Masters Tournament: Articles, photos and videos “I think part of that,” McIlroy said, “was having so much expectation and thinking of the Grand Slam and thinking of the Masters and thinking of all this where I needed to just take a step back and relax and go out and try and play my own game.” That part creates pressure, too. He possesses an explosive game that many expect will produce multiple Masters victories. He can hit the ball high. He can land the ball softly. He has a good touch around the greens. “He can emasculate a golf course,” Tom Watson said. “You would think this was a golf course that I can definitely win on,” McIlroy said. “I know that. I just haven’t quite been able to get myself over the hurdle. “Am I surprised that this is the last one left? Probably, yeah.” So why hasn’t it happened? The danger at the Masters, more so than any other tournament, is to over-prepare, to try every possible shot, lie and angle, to line up practice rounds with veterans and to ask too many questions. McIlroy played too tentatively his first few years, his focus more on where to avoid than where to aim. The information overload also conflicted with his carefree attitude on the course when he’s in top form. Phil Mickelson, who didn’t break through at Augusta until his 12th attempt, said the temptation for players is to focus too much on the course and not enough on their own game. “It’s much better to be ready with your game,” Mickelson said, “because you’ve got to execute no matter how well you know the golf course.” Which is why to play his best, McIlroy says it’s imperative that he backs off, that he doesn’t overthink, that he doesn’t try too hard. After heading to Augusta early each year to reacquaint himself with the course, he didn’t play his first round here this year until Monday, when he set up a match with Chris Wood. On Tuesday, he played a game with Andy Sullivan, Jamie Donaldson and Bernd Wiesberger, and he used only one ball, even if it meant hitting out of pine straw or a fairway bunker. “I’m just trying to play it more like it is a tournament round,” he said. With so much pressure to complete the Slam, it would seem that McIlroy’s appearance at the Par-3 Contest would be a welcome reprieve, a chance to have a few laughs and fun before the most famous golf tournament on the most stressful course in the world commences. But McIlroy has switched up his routine for that, too, saying that he wanted to “get away from the spotlight a little bit.” That’s understandable, of course, but McIlroy also has the last tee time Thursday (2:01 p.m. ET). He’ll have to wait 24 hours after his last practice round to tee it up in the tournament proper, which is plenty of time to, well, sit around and think about the Slam and the Masters and that elusive green jacket. “I feel like I’ve got everything I need to become a Masters champion,” he said, “but I think each and every year that passes that I don’t, it will become increasingly more difficult.” Especially if he makes all of these changes and winds up with the same disappointing outcome.last_img read more

Ravitch Endorses Four Atlanta School Board Candidates

first_img ‘It’s Fractured’: Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan On Healing Republican Party Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility 0:43 | Play story Add to My ListIn My List Share Education advocate, professor and author Diane Ravitch spoke in Atlanta today to a group of potential voters. Ravitch’s organization, The Network for Public Education, has endorsed some candidates in next week’s Atlanta school board race. Hear the audio version of this story. 0:43Ravitch says she wants to help restore public education by stopping the privatization of schools. She blames privatization, in part, on the charter schools movement. Charter schools are public schools, but some accept private investments. Nine APS school board seats will be in play next Tuesday. Ravitch’s group has endorsed four candidates: Cynthia Briscoe Brown, Ed Johnson, Mary Palmer, and Nisha Simama. Ravitch says they carefully considered all of the candidates beforehand.“We asked for resumes and statements from all the candidates, including the people from Teach for America,” she says. “And the four that we selected were the ones that were the most committed to public education.”Ravitch doesn’t support Teach for America, a federal program that trains college graduates to teach in high-needs areas for a minimum of two years. Ravitch says her group didn’t end up supporting any of those candidates.  But, she adds, they didn’t donate to the candidates they endorsed.   “We have no money,” she says. “And, as you well know, Mayor Reed has collected lots of money and I just read in the Atlanta Journal that he’s getting money from the Koch brothers.”A Reed-backed Political Action Committee has backed eight different candidates. The Super PAC includes Georgia Pacific, which is owned by Koch Industries. For Whom The Bell Rings Related Storieslast_img read more

In a letter to the editor, Vision Media Marketing Vice President Philip Swibinski, the public relations firm of choice for state Senator/North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco, says that Tuesday’s board of education election was his worst showing to date.Dear editor,Larry Wainstein lost his ninth North Bergen election earlier this week and despite his clumsy attempts at somehow spinning this into a win, the truth is that this was the worst showing he has produced yet.Wainstein’s three candidates garnered only about 500 votes and were absolutely swamped by the ticket supported by Mayor Nick Sacco which received over 88% of the vote.This happened despite Wainstein putting everything he had into supporting his candidates — he spent at least $100,000 on nine separate pieces of literature and numerous video attack ads and personally walked door to door.None of that mattered, because the simple truth is that Larry Wainstein is less popular in North Bergen today than he was when he began his ridiculous vendetta against Mayor Sacco in 2011.What will it take for Larry to finally realize that North Bergen voters will never support him? Does he have to lose an election 10-1? 20-1? 50-1? Or will he keep banging his head against a brick wall as long as Joe Mocco still tells him that someday he’ll win?This election has proven three things — the first is that Mayor Sacco’s organization is firing on all cylinders and he has never been more popular. The second is that Larry Wainstein has no future in North Bergen.The third is that Wainstein’s account of the last Mayor’s race is pure fiction and ignores that after spending $1.5 million he got less than 33% of the vote.That is a landslide loss that only a convicted criminal like Joe Mocco or a conman like Larry Wainsten could try to spin into a positive outcome with a straight face. It’s like saying that the Titanic did well because it took a few hours to sink.It’s time for Lying Larry to admit utter defeat, pack his bags and go back home to his mansion in Franklin Lakes.Philip SwibinskiVision Media Marketing Vice President By Hudson County View – April 28, 2017 3:39 pm 1 DeGise: Hudson County ‘determined’ to get out of ICE contract following Essex decision 1 COMMENT Sacco’s rein is almost over.Thank God.
