Kimber Forced to Halt Ops Due to Cuomo COVID-19 Order :: Guns.com

Kimber announced this week they will have to pause production for the time being. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com) New York-based Kimber Manufacturing is the latest gun maker to have to pause operations due to state-ordered stay-at-home mandates that do not recognize the firearm industry as essential. The company, which originally started in Oregon, has its headquarters in Yonkers, New York for more than 20 years while expanding operations to Montana and Alabama. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order last Friday closed down Kimber’s Yonker’s facility– along with Remington’s Ilion, New York location. On Thursday, Kimber announced that while production continues at the company’s new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Troy, Alabama, due to the large number of parts produced in Yonkers, the Troy facility will have to suspend production on March 31. “This situation is unfortunate as we were off to an incredible start in gun shipments in 2020 and were running our factories seven days a week,” said Greg Grogan, Kimber president. “We would like to thank our dealers and consumers for their overwhelmingly positive response to our 2020 new products.” Kimber had introduced almost a dozen...

Pregis acquires Italian temporary protective films manufacturer

Pregis has acquired So.Pr.Ad. SRL (Soprad) of Milan, Italy, a global provider of temporary protective films. Going forward, Soprad’s products will be marketed under the Pregis’ PolyMask brand and will further reinforce its offerings to a growing global market.

Coronavirus Could Bring a Recession: What Investors Can Learn From Past Recessions

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ Coronavirus fears have hit the stock market hard, and they’re also having a dramatic impact on the U.S. economy. The airline and cruise ship industries have already come to a near-standstill as would-be travelers wait to see if travel restrictions come to the U.S., and the outbreak likely played a role in the dispute between Russia and Saudi Arabia that led to the collapse in oil prices earlier this week. With the federal government now looking at potential fiscal stimulus measures, concern about a possible recession has reached a fever pitch. Investors haven’t dealt with an outbreak like COVID-19 before, but there have been plenty of past recessions. History has some important lessons for investors who’ve never gone through a recession before, and even experienced investors can benefit from reminders about how past economic contractions have gone. Many economists set the official definition of a recession as two straight quarters of falling gross domestic product. That length of time is somewhat arbitrary, but what it means is that it takes a long time to confirm that a recession has actually started. For instance, it wasnR...

In this moment of quarantines and social distancing, distractibaking has overtaken its more prominent cousin, procrastibaking. Atlantans living under the current stay-at-home order might find themselves with more time at home and a good reason to avoid the grocery store, if possible. Plus, the wholesome, nurturing nature of baking makes for a welcome distraction from the pandemic and uncertainty teeming outside our quarantine walls. Read on to find recipes for some of our favorite baking projects. A household essential that tends to disappear from grocery store shelves when people over-buy in the name of disaster preparedness, bread is one of the most rewarding baking projects you can undertake. Under quarantine, the phenomenon of a distractibaking has quickly taken hold. Social media has been filled with photos of cookies, muffins and the miraculous no-knead bread that has long been one of the most popular recipes ever published by The New York Times. For AJC readers who want to get in on the action, we’ve dug up an article from 2016 that has several recipes for everyday breads, including ones for old-fashioned white loaf and hearty country bread.  In stressful times, cake is a...

Column: U.S. soybean exports in jeopardy after February shipments to China hit 20-year low

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (Reuters) – U.S. soybean shipments have rebounded from last year’s trade war-fueled lull, but recent volumes and sales are well off normal levels and February exports were alarmingly low, raising concerns for the rest of the 2019-20 season. The United States exported 5.32 million tonnes of soybeans in January, up 10% from last year but down 19% from the 2014-2018 average, according to data published on Friday by the U.S. Census Bureau. Some 40% of the January soybean volume was shipped to top buyer China, which is below the 2014-2018 average of 62%. Export inspection data published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday suggests that around 3.2 million tonnes of soybeans left U.S. ports in February, which if realized would be a 14-year low for the month. The data also implies last month’s bean exports to China were around 600,000 tonnes, and that would be the lowest February volume in 20 years and the lowest for any month since April 2019. According to USDA’s export sales report, as of Feb. 27, there were just 293,000 tonnes of purchased soybeans left to ship to China by the end of the marketing year, well below the latest five-year low of 1.4 ...

Pickups are taking Europe by storm: Germany alone, registered almost 30,000 new vehicles last year, the

Pickups are taking Europe by storm: Germany alone, registered almost 30,000 new vehicles last year, the Ford Ranger making up almost a third of those. Reason enough for delta4x4’s creative team to eagerly set to work on primping up the already excellent Ford Ranger.Height is of the essence!An off-road chassis with longer springs already provides four centimeters more ground clearance. On top of this the Bavarian off-road specialist delta4x4 provide the Ford Ranger with a body lift kit that raises the vehicle, together with the chassis modifications, by a total of 14 centimetres. This combination also allows necessary space in the wheel arches to fit Mud Terrain 305/60 R 18 tires. delta4x4 swears by the combination of the coarse-tread Cooper STT Pro and the in-house WP light alloy rim in matt black. With its distinctive offroad profile, the Mud Terrain tire guarantees optimum traction in all off-road applications and provides a further 20 to 30 millimetres of ground clearance. To ensure that the wide wheels do not protrude laterally, the South German off road tuner covers them with tailormade “wide body” fender extensions, which are mounted in the vehicle colour. In a...

BorgWarner To Temporarily Suspend Operations Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ (RTTNews) – BorgWarner Inc. (BWA) announced Tuesday that it will temporarily suspend operations at certain of its manufacturing and assembly facilities as many original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers have temporary suspended or will suspend manufacturing operations, particularly in North America and Europe due to market conditions and matters associated with coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. BorgWarner said the significant reductions in automotive or truck production would have an adverse effect on its sales to OEMs in these regions, which comprised about 70% of its total sales in 2019. Although the Company is currently unable to reasonably estimate the impact of this situation on its 2020 outlook due to the heightened level of uncertainty, it does expect this situation to have a material impact on its 2020 financial performance and is in the process of reassessing its full-year financial guidance. The company said it plans to provide an update to its outlook on its first quarter earnings call scheduled for May 6, 2020.

Unauthorized Charcoal: GE fridges won’t dispense ice or water unless your filter authenticates as an official ($55!) component – boing

Doesn’t his kind of filter have to be replaced regularly? Would it work even after the filter expire? All I can see is that people will just keep the old filter, if the fridge wasn’t configured to brick itself after the expected replacement date (hey GE, there is still more money to be made), and get more potential health problems because of a company’s greed. Yes, my fridge is every 6 months. I buy generic ones online. I wonder how hard it would be to remove the RFID from the old filter and slap it on the new generic one. Not that anyone here would violate the terms of service and whatnot like that. Yes, my fridge is every 6 months. I buy generic ones online. I wonder how hard it would be to remove the RFID from the old filter and slap it on the new generic one. Probably not that hard. This is what people did with the Keurig pods, going so far as to tape the chip onto the reader. The twist is that GE is about to go bankrupt, meaning it’s an open question whether paying them $55 now is going to turn into paying $150 to some third party who bought the license, or trawling eBay for vintage new-in-box fridge filters. I have a new GE fridge and I just replaced the filter with an off...

Recycling automotive wiring harnesses has traditionally been difficult. There is simply too much other “stuff” bundled

Recycling automotive wiring harnesses has traditionally been difficult. There is simply too much other “stuff” bundled in with the copper. Photo courtesy Toyota Motor Corp. Toyota’s new recycling process begins by crushing and shredding the harness. The crushed material is then sent to a specific gravity sorting system, which separates resins from metals. Next, the metal particulates pass through a mesh strainer to separate out terminals and other metal parts. Finally, the remaining metal particulates pass through a magnetic screening system, which removes any ferrous particles. Photo courtesy Toyota Motor Corp. Post-consumer material, such as old wiring, typically accounts for 39 percent to 46 percent of recycled copper, but that percentage is expected to grow rapidly in the near future. Photo courtesy TKO Recycling No. 1 grade copper wires contain no metallic contaminants and are the most valued for recycling. Photo courtesy TKO Recycling By some estimates, approximately 40 years’ worth of mineable copper resources remains worldwide. At the same time, global consumption is growing, driven particularly by infrastructure-related demand for wiring in emerging markets. In addition...
