It had some of the candidates talking, in fact outraged at the decision by the domestic airline and the seemingly sluggish pace by officials to see the service restored. A Former MP, South Caicos native and running independent for the seat is McAllister Hanchell, who with former Premier Michael Missick today issued comment which said in part:“This is a serious blow to South Caicos and the people of South Caicos that depend on regular schedule flight to get food, service, workers and tourist in and out of the Island. In fact, even the regular weekly visit by the bank was disrupted today. We understand that the issues are between the Airline and the Airports Authority. We call on both parties to put ego and differences aside in the interest of the people of South Caicos in particular and the wider public in general and resume schedule flights immediately.” InterCaribbean Airways yesterday explained that it has been asked to perform flyovers to alert contractors on the air strip that they want to come in for a landing; the airline refused to do it citing it is dangerous and illegal. PDM Candidate, Keno Forbes said the disruption was unprofessional and unacceptable.“There are elderly folks with doctor’s appointments, there are people with connecting flights, there are tourist on the island that had to make connecting flights to get back to their home, and they have all had to pay additional funds and take a boat ride to get back to Provo. This type of behavior is not acceptable.” The Airports Authority also explained, “risk assessments were completed, mitigations implemented, and regulatory approval was obtained prior to the start of works.” ICA had said the fly-overs, which were requested by the Airports Authority were unauthorized. #MagneticMediaNews

Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe review: Stylish and sure-footed Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 3 Car Games and Apps,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 18 Photos 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 71 Photos 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 69 Photos Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio. More From Roadshow Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive.

Making it easier to add riders should improve that. Waze Waze Carpool isn’t like your usual ride-sharing service. It’s not out to cut drivers a profit, but instead reduce vehicle clutter by helping strangers carpool along the same route. Now, Waze has added a feature that it says drivers have been asking for.Waze announced on Monday that it has added a new feature for the driver side of its Waze Carpool app. It’s now much easier to bring additional folks into a carpool. After confirming a ride, drivers can tap a new + icon that invites riders who bring minimal detours to the route. According to the image in Waze’s Medium post, the new function will let drivers see how much more money the trip brings in, in addition to how big of a detour is required. Drivers can fill up to four seats, although Waze was quick to point out that the prices do get adjusted “so they don’t exceed the total sum of wear and tear.” Drivers are still limited to two carpools per day, since this isn’t about quitting your job and running this scheme full-time.This is a stark contrast to how Uber and Lyft run pools. In those schemes, the driver is still acting as your usual ride-hailing driver, but instead they’re picking up multiple people who have destinations along similar routes. It saves the riders a little bit of money, even if it means taking slightly longer to reach a given destination. 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 2019 Honda Ridgeline review: Light duty, heavy punch Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 68 Photos 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 49 Photos 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Share your voice 12 Photos Share your voice Tags 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal More From Roadshow General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 0 Comments GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic.

Further, Angad agrees that going nude is a very personal choice and not everyone is comfortable with the idea of posing naked for photoshoot or scenes. “I have many friends in female also who are not comfortable wearing shorts also and many male friends who cannot go shirtless for a photo or a show. I was offered to go nude in a web series but I wasn’t comfortable but you never know I might get comfortable in the future. It’s an individual choice. We are living in 2019 and people pretend to be holier than a cow. Who doesn’t like to have a look at sexy actors and actresses bodies?” he said.Spilling some beans on his inspiration, Angad said that he takes inspiration from Hrithik Roshan, who has worked hard to develop and maintain his physique. Angad HasijaInstagramOf late, posing nude for the cameras have become fairly common among television celebrities. After a few male actors like Abhinav Shukla, Karan Tacker, Sangram Singh, Ashmit Patel who went bold for photoshoots, recently actresses Abigail Pande and Aashka Goradia went topless to promote nude yoga.However, the first TV actor who dared to bare it all a few years ago was Angad Hasija.Talking about what promoted him to pose nude, Angad, who rose to popularity with Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai, told SpotboyE: “I was the first actor to get a nude photoshoot done, my image was very shy and innocent and a sanskari boy courtesy my TV show Sapna Babul Ka Bidaai. I wanted to do something different and it wasn’t cheap at all. I did it for an international gallery. I got to do a lot of fashion shows because of that,”But, back then, the actor was heavily criticised for posing nude although many admired him for the same. “When I did it few years ago, people were looking down on me. And now it has been a trend. When you start something new, you have to be prepared to take criticism and people didn’t take it well and today everyone is doing it. People told me that since I was doing something so traditional as TV, how can I go nude, even for a photoshoot?” he said, adding that, “I think my fan following increased more and people started considering me gutsy and sexy after seeing the pictures,” he said.When asked if he would go bold for a show or movie, the Bidaai actor quipped, “Yes, if needed and if the presentation is done in a good way, then why not! I am comfortable with my body. I don’t know why people make so much fuss about going nude. As an actor one should have the guts that if the script demands, you can do anything.”

File PhotoAnnouncing zero tolerance against corruption and irregularities at Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA), Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Wednesday said a new journey has to be launched to make it a corruption-free organisation, reports UNB.“There should be a fresh journey to build a corruption-free BRTA,” he said while exchanging views with BRTA officials, including its depot managers, at its newly constructed Bhaban at Banani.Quader, also Awami League general secretary, said the menace of brokers in and outside its offices must be stopped to make the BRTA free from corruption, warning that if any official or employee is found involved with any broker, stern action will be taken following investigations.He also underscored the need for increasing manpower to enhance the quality of service and improve the skills of the existing workforce to turn BRTA into an effective and dynamic organisation.Responding to a query from reporters, the minister said 63 per cent work on the Padma Bridge project has already been completed. “One kilometre of the Padma Bridge is now visible following the installation of 7th span,” he said.
ScreengrabMontgomery County Road Bond Project MapThe State Commission on Judicial Conduct on Tuesday suspended Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal without pay.A grand jury indicted Doyal last Friday on misdemeanor charges that he violated the Texas Open Meetings Act. The grand jury also indicted Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley and Precinct 4 Commissioner Jim Clark.They are accused of improperly exchanging emails concerning the county’s $280 million road bond that voters passed in November.“It is a rare thing for the State Commission on Judicial Conduct to suspend somebody, because they only take that action when they are uniformly convinced that something is definitely wrong,” said Brandon Rottinghaus, who teaches political science at the University of Houston. “They typically use public sanctions, or private sanctions as a mechanism to try to coerce the individual involved to change their ways.”Punishment for the charge is up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $500.If convicted, the men will be removed from office.
