Through its affiliation with NASCAR, Phyzix Synthetics manufactures and distributes a line of NASCAR-licensed professional automobile maintenance fluids designated as the “No. 1 Professional Maintenance Fluid of NASCAR.” In his new role as COO, Boyle brings more than 20 years of automotive experience to this leadership position at Phyzix. “Phyzix has a great foundation to build upon” said Boyle. “Our vision for this space combined with our affiliation with NASCAR, one of the most recognizable brands in the world, has Phyzix poised to take the fluid maintenance business by storm.” Prior to joining Phyzix, Boyle was president of Mobile Productivity Inc.

I am very excited about this opportunity; Phyzix will do great things in the near future.” Boyle added, “Our first order of business is to expose auto dealers to Phyzix. We are a brand new company with an exciting and new value proposition for dealers. We had the luxury of stepping back and looking at the established space of fluid maintenance chemicals and look for ways to improve every element of it. We have done that and now it’s time to get the message out.”

CONSTRUCTION work has finally started on the first line of the long-planned metro for the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing. The 16·8 km Line 1 will run north-south across the city centre, and is costed at 5·4bn yuan.Proposals for the metro were approved by the National Planning Commitee in mid-1994 (RG 9.94 p545), at which time full construction was expected to begin in 1997. However, at the end of 1995 the government imposed a planning freeze on all new metro projects because of their demand for substantial foreign exchange funding. Linking Maigaoqiao, Xinjiekuo and Xiaohang, Line 1 will have 13 stations. Of these, 8 stations and 10·2 km of route will be underground and the rest on the surface. A trial excavation at Sanshanjie began in 1992, and the first underground station is now being built here. The section from the southern terminus at Xiaohang, where the depot will be located, to Sanshanjie, including an interchange to Chinese Railways at Zhonghuamen, is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
A former Zambian minister and fierce critic of President Edgar Lungu will face trial after pleading not guilty to fraud charges on Monday following his arrest last week.Zambia ex-foreign minister Chishimba KambwiliInvestigators accuse ex-foreign minister Chishimba Kambwili of forging a signature on an official document. He appeared in court surrounded by hundreds of police officers who blocked access to the hearing.“I understand the charges your honour and I plead not guilty,” lawmaker Kambwili, 50, told the court, denying the alleged offences which court documents showed date back to October 2013.Magistrate David Simusamba set the trial date for March 6.Kambwili has previously accused Mr. Lungu of corruption and theft and, while still a member of the president’s party, he supports the breakaway National Democratic Congress bloc. “Lungu is drunk with his corruption and he is getting confused day by day, and those saying Lungu is not corrupt are foolish,” Kambwili said following his arrest on Tuesday.“I want to tell you Lungu – I know you are listening – all those monies you are getting, you will not enjoy it. We know you, Lungu and your family, and we are watching you.”Lungu has denied accusations that he is creating a dictatorship in Zambia and has accused rivals of trying to overturn last year’s election results.The southern African nation was last year rocked by soaring tensions that also saw a spate of arson attacks, some opposition legislators boycotting parliament and the barring of an overseas political observer.“I am extremely excited that the matter has come to court. As you know there has been so much mud thrown at me,” said Kambwili.

Iloilo high jump athlete Alexie Mae Caimoso Brooks leads fellow athletes in reciting the Oath of Amateurism at the opening of the WVRAA Meet at the Iloilo Sports Complex in Iloilo City, in this Feb. 18, 2018 photo. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PNFILIPINA-AMERICAN high jump athlete Alexie Mae Caimoso Brooks could be headed overseas for college – she has received scholarship offers from two universities in the United States.The Leon, Iloilo native told Panay News in an interview that they will have to choose between University of Texas at El Paso and Trojan California University if she decides to go abroad.“Of course, it is flattering that they offered me scholarships,” Brooks said. “Kay Coach Noel (Diel) nila in-offer ang scholarship.”“He knows me well, and I trust him to decide. He has been my mentor since I started in high jump,” the athlete said of her coach.Brooks will soon be occupied by preparations for Palarong Pambansa after bagging gold in the secondary girls high jump in the recently concluded WVRAA Meet in Iloilo City – breaking the record in the regional meet by posting 1.68 meters.“I do not want to think about that yet,” she said of college. “I want to focus on my upcoming tournament.”Aside from the United States schools, Brooks also drew interest from the Manila-based University of Santo Tomas, University of the Philippines, De La Salle University, and Ateneo de Manila University.Provincial Sports Development Officer Ray Cabarles said they were currently concentrating on Brooks’ campaign in the national games where they aim to break another record – something that could bode well for the athlete’s chances of studying abroad.“Sa ngayon mas gusto muna namin na pagtuonan niya ng pansin iyong Palaro,” said Cabarles. “Ang target nga namin ay burahin anuman ang existing record doon para masigurado na iyong US scholarship niya.”He added: “We are really determined to make that happen for her because she has the potential. We plan to hire a person that can help her prepare for that competition.”/PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full] Iloilo high jump athlete Alexie Mae Caimoso Brooks leads fellow athletes in reciting the Oath of Amateurism at the opening of the WVRAA Meet at the Iloilo Sports Complex in Iloilo City, in this Feb. 18, 2018 photo.

Sumber: cntraveler.com Menjamurnya layanan Low Cost Carrier (LCC) atau penerbangan berbiaya rendah belakangan ini nyatanya memang sangat membantu banyak kalangan yang hendak mengudara namun dengan budget yang terbatas. Walaupun tidak senyaman layanan Business Class atau First Class, namun tetap saja harganya yang miring membuat LCC digandrungi banyak pihak. Nah, satu hal yang patut diwaspadai sebelum mengudara menggunakan LCC adalah biaya lebih untuk bagasi.Baca Juga: Selasa Sore! Waktu Paling Tepat untuk Berburu Tiket Pesawat MurahBarang bawaan yang melebihi kapasitas memang kerap kali menimbulkan satu masalah baru sebelum Anda mengudara. Tapi bukan berarti Anda harus membayar biaya lebih untuk memasukkan barang bawaan Anda ke dalam bagasi. Memang, tidak semua maskapai memberikan advantage sebagaimana kebanyakan LCC di Indonesia yang menyediakan fitur bagasi gratis hingga 15 kg. Namun apabila Anda menemukan maskapai yang tidak memberlakukan fitur seperti ini, seorang awak kabin membocorkan ‘cara liciknya’. Seperti yang dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman express.co.uk (25/9/2018), adapun cara yang bisa Anda lakukan untuk mengurangi pengeluaran lebih untuk barang bawaan Anda adalah berbicara langsung ke petugas penjaga gate. Utarakan ke penjaga tersebut bahwa Anda tidak keberatan semisal mereka ingin mengecek isi dari tas kita.“Jika Anda ingin membawa barang-barang Anda ke pesawat dan tidak membayar biaya untuk bagasi, bawalah tas Anda ke gerbang dan katakan saja Anda bahwa bersedia untuk diperiksa tasnya. Pemeriksaan ini biasanya ditujukan untuk meminimalisir ruang yang ada di tas Anda,” ungkap si awak kabin yang identitasnya dirahasiakan tersebut.“Anda tidak akan kena charge untuk pemeriksaan ini – biasanya,” tandasnya.Seperti yang sudah disebutkan di atas, masing-masing maskapai memiliki aturannya sendiri. Tidak semua maskapai di dunia aviasi memberlakukan fitur free baggage, dan Ryanair merupakan salah satu-satunya maskapai asal Inggris yang tidak memperbolehkan penumpang membawa barang bawaan Anda (seperti koper kecil) ke dalam kabin.Otomatis, Anda harus memasukkannya ke dalam bagasi, dimana itu akan menambah pengeluaran Anda.Baca Juga: Tips – Sebelum Masuk ke Kargo Pesawat, Pastikan Koper Anda Cukup KuatNah, kalau sudah begitu, Anda bisa menyiasatinya dengan cara membawa barang seperlunya saja dan dimasukkan ke dalam tas ransel kecil – dimana ini masih diperbolehkan untuk masuk ke dalam kabin Ryanair.Alih-alih membawa tas dengan kapasitas maksimal 20 kg dengan harga £25 atau yang setara dengan Rp439.000, para penumpang biasanya menyiasati dengan cara membeli dua tas berkapasitas masing-masing 10kg dengan harga £8 atau yang setara dengan Rp140.000. Dengan mengeluarkan Rp280.000 untuk kapasitas yang sama (20kg), para penumpang bisa menghemat Rp159.000. Lumayan, kan?
