Why Fiat Chrysler Is Merging With French Carmaker Peugeot

Rival carmakers PSA Group and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles unveiled a plan to combine, pooling resources to confront an expensive new era of trade tariffs, emissions rules and electrification. Shareholders of each company will own 50% of the combined entity, to be listed in Paris, Milan and New York. Investors in Fiat will receive a dividend of 5.5 billion euros ($6.1 billion) and its robotics arm Comau, while France’s PSA plans to distribute its 46% stake in auto-parts maker Faurecia SE. Cost savings from the deal without plant closures are projected to be about 3.7 billion euros. PSA shares dropped as much as 9.1% in Paris, the most in more than three years, while Fiat rose as much as 10% in Milan. The boards of Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot and Citroen-maker PSA agreed to work toward a binding agreement in the coming weeks, they said Thursday in a joint statement. The accord would create the fourth-largest automaker with a combined market value of about $50 billion. A merger of Fiat Chrysler and PSA, the No. 2 for car sales in Europe, would create a regional powerhouse to challenge Volkswagen AG. The tie-up would bring together the billionaire Agnelli clan in Italy and the Peugeot ...

It’s a familiar sight in many casual restaurants: the sign warning patrons against bringing in outside

It’s a familiar sight in many casual restaurants: the sign warning patrons against bringing in outside food or beverages. Some offer an explanation — the health code requires you to consume only those items bought in the restaurant in which you are sitting. (Ah, the cleansing power of money.) Apart from legitimate, if oblique, sanitary concerns, the signs always seem like an attempt to browbeat brown-baggers into shelling out for a slice of pizza. But in the experience of one restaurant consultant, Aaron D. Allen, who recently tried to bring an outside tea into Le Bernardin, the phenomenon cuts across all price points. He writes: “Sir, we will dispose of that for you, but you cannot bring it inside,” the hostess said, referring to my Starbucks tea, while looking at it as if I was holding a bag of freshly scooped dog poop. “Um, yeah, but I just bought it and it’s only now cooled to the point to drink. … I’m happy to buy another here in addition to this one, but I’m suffering from a bit of a caffeine headache and would like to finish it,” I said. … … I can fully understand a restaurant turning away a patron who is trying to bring in alcohol, or a movie theater refusing to allow ou...

The initial justification for developing these lasers was to bring the benefits of fiber lasers to

The initial justification for developing these lasers was to bring the benefits of fiber lasers to low-average-power, low-duty-cycle pulsed laser welds. Cladding pumped fiber lasers have been a major success in the laser industry in the last decade and recent reports suggest this trend is set to continue. Both low-power fiber lasers for marking and high-power multi-kilowatt fiber lasers for cutting and welding are rapidly growing their market share. Recent reports suggest that the number of multi-kilowatt fiber lasers employed in industry for flat sheet metal cutting will very soon overtake the number of CO2 lasers sold into the largest industrial laser market [1]. In addition, fiber laser components in the form of fiber amplifiers or fiber oscillators are now being widely adopted as key components for building shorter pulse lasers in the picosecond and femtosecond regime. Here, we report on a third type of fiber laser that is also making rapid progress in capturing market share. A range of infrared (IR) fiber lasers known as quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) lasers are now rapidly displacing the long-established Nd:YAG flashlamp pumped laser technology. The generic benefits of fiber ...

The past decade saw worldwide museum attendance escalate to great numbers with The Louvre in Paris

The past decade saw worldwide museum attendance escalate to great numbers with The Louvre in Paris attracting a record-breaking, 10 million visitors in 2018 and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City wrangling approximately seven million attendees that very same year. These numbers are proof that there is a growing interest in art and design with international institutions also planning new ways to elevate their programming to reel in even more art-seekers in the months to come. While there are a ridiculous amount of exhibitions to check out this year, HYPEBEAST has formed a comprehensive list of the highly-anticipated presentations at some of the most notable museums worldwide. Check out the 20 must-see exhibitions across the globe for 2020 below and let us know which ones you plan on visiting.

Kathy Sheridan: Do election debates matter anymore?

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin faces Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in an election debate tonight. File photograph: Leon Neal/AFP via Getty Die Hard on the Doorsteps, the election 2020 series got a smart fillip on Monday night with a health debate that was actually enlightening. Hopeful even. How amazing is that? We watched in wonder as five politicians discussed the most distressing, entrenched scandal facing the country with only the occasional witless attempt to knock political lumps out of each other.

Why tech has been slow to fight wildfires, extreme weather

In this Nov. 26, 2019, file photo a firefighter prepares to battle the Cave Fire as it flares up along Highway 154 in the Los Padres National Forest, above Santa Barbara, Calif. As wildfire risks heat up, startups in California’s Silicon Valley are starting to take notice. They are hopeful more tech companies will get involved as wildfires continue to occur in California and Australia. In this Oct. 29, 2019, file photo a helicopter drops water while battling the Kincade Fire near Healdsburg, Calif. SAN FRANCISCO — For three years running, California’s wildfires have sent plumes of smoke across Silicon Valley. So far, though, that hasn’t spurred much tech innovation aimed at addressing extreme-weather disasters associated with climate change. It’s true that tech companies from enterprise software-maker Salesforce to financial-technology firm Stripe have pushed to dramatically reduce their climate impact. Individual investors and small investment firms have stepped in to fund emerging efforts around cleantech — a term used broadly to describe technology that looks to manage human impact on the environment. And the catastrophic Australian wildfires have spurred additional interest....

St. Pete Police: 2 accused of taking 75-year-old’s wallet, going on spending spree

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — A pair of women caught smiling on a surveillance video are accused of stealing a wallet from a 75-year-old woman and then going on a $5,000 spending spree. St. Petersburg police officials posted their photo on Facebook Friday, saying they’re wanted for stealing the wallet from a woman as she shopped for groceries. Police said within 30 minutes, the pair went to another store and purchased $5,000 worth of electronics and gift cards with the woman’s credit cards. They tried to make purchases at another store, but the woman’s cards were declined. Women Wallet, Men Wallet, Leather Belt, PU Belt, Handmade Wallet – Benshang,http://www.benshangcn.com/
