Kia to recall vehicles to fix problem that can cause fires

first_imgDETROIT — Kia says it will ignore the partial U.S. government shutdown and recall more than 68,000 vehicles to fix a fuel pipe problem that can cause engine fires. The problem stemmed from previous recall repairs due to engine failures.The Korean automaker and its larger affiliate Hyundai have been dogged by fire and engine failure complaints from across the nation. They’re both under investigation by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The agency, which oversees recalls, is mostly closed because of the shutdown.Kia also says it will do a “product improvement campaign” to install sensors in 1.7 million vehicles that will alert drivers of possible engine failures and send the cars into a slow-speed “limp” mode if problems are detected.Tom Krisher, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Mens Basketball No 14 Ohio State rolls through Iowa with 8264 win

Ohio State freshman forward Kaleb Wesson (34) squares up to the basket in the first half of the game against Iowa on Feb. 10 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorNo. 14 Ohio State (22-5, 13-1) continued its win streak with a 82-61 win over Iowa (12-15, 3-11) at home on Saturday to improve to 13-1 in conference play.The Buckeyes shot 41 percent from 3 compared to 30 percent from the Hawkeyes. Ohio State scored 18 points off 12 turnovers from the Hawkeyes. Iowa finished the game shooting 8-for-10 from the line, while Ohio State struggled, going just 15-for-21. Freshman center Kaleb Wesson led Ohio State players with 18 points and was 5-for-8 from the field with seven rebounds, but struggled from the line, making just 8-of-11 attempts. Redshirt junior Keita Bates-Diop also had 14 points and eight rebounds, while junior guard C.J. Jackson had 14 points. Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said he was pleased with his team’s offensive effort overall in the game, even if the defense lacked behind at times.“We moved the ball, shared it, made the right pass at the right time, had a few too many turnovers but I thought offensively we were really good,” Holtmann said. “I give our guys a lot of credit for responding from an emotional game the other night, I’m proud of them.”Freshman forward Jack Nunge led the Hawkeyes with 18 points.A steal by Bates-Diop led to a layup from Jackson that sent the teams into the under-8 timeout. The Buckeyes went on an 8-0 run over 1:18 to take a 23-18 lead.  A quick turnover from Iowa’s sophomore forward Tyler Cook led to a dunk on a fast-break chance from senior forward Jae’Sean Tate to put the Buckeyes back on top 19-18. They never relinquished their lead. Ohio State pulled away on an 18-2 run with 18:25 left in the second half that kept the Hawkeyes at bay the remainder of the game. Iowa had cut the Ohio State lead down to just 44-36 before the Buckeyes went on their run, but it was unable to get any momentum going to get back in the matchup. Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery said things just spiraled out of control for his team.“As much as anything it was bad offense by us,” McCaffery said. “Good defense by them, they were up into us but I don’t think we moved the ball. I didn’t think we executed, they got some transition opportunities, we were missing. When you’re missing you need to get some back, we didn’t get enough back and credit them for that.”The teams traded buckets early. The Hawkeyes went on a 7-0 run over 1:57 with 9:40 remaining in the first half to put Iowa ahead 18-15.A 3-pointer from redshirt senior guard Andrew Dakich put the Buckeyes up 10 with 3:05 remaining in the first half. Jackson hit another 3 on the next possession for the Buckeyes. A dunk from Wesson and a 3-pointer from Jackson, followed by a layup from Tate, gave the Buckeyes their largest lead of the game to that point coming out of the half. The Hawkeyes were held scoreless for over three minutes and did not make any of their last six field goals by the under-16 timeout. read more

In Texas Theres No OneSizeFitsAll Strategy To Protect Schools From Gun Violence

In Texas Theres No OneSizeFitsAll Strategy To Protect Schools From Gun Violence

first_imgGABRIEL C. PÉREZ / KUTA mural at the HOPE Outdoor Gallery in Austin honors victims of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.After the Columbine school shooting in 1999, the Texas Legislature created the School Safety Center, a research center at Texas State University that helps schools prepare for different kinds of disasters.As the Trump administration launches a commission to explore ways keep schools safe, the center’s associate director for research and education offers a few options.“You limit the amount of access points to a school,” Joseph McKenna said. “It could be working with your local and county law enforcement; it could be the marshal program; it could be arming staff. We have districts across the state that use all these different measures.”McKenna says every community has different needs. Schools in areas where police response times are fast might be more comfortable relying on law enforcement, while schools in rural districts might lean toward arming teachers.In Texas, educators can go through a school marshal program to get certified to carry a gun.Robert Farago, who runs TheTruthAboutGuns.com in Austin, that’s the best way to stop an active shooter.“That threat has to be eliminated by force,” he said. “Now, the police showing up, that’s great. But people who are on the site, if they have a firearm, they can do a lot to reduce the amount of carnage being created.”The state doesn’t release data on the number of teachers who are certified as school marshals.On the federal level, Texas legislators have introduced measures relating to guns and school safety. Republican Sen. John Cornyn’s bill would strengthen background checks for people buying guns. Republican Rep. Roger Williams’ bill would create grants for schools to pay for better security. Here’s how he described it in an op-ed last week:“Under this legislation, schools may apply for a grant from the Department of Education in order to conduct an independent security assessment,” he wrote. “The results of this assessment will recommend improvements that would be eligible for funding from a Department grant. Necessary improvements might include metal detectors, steel doors, bulletproof glass, emergency training and additional law enforcement on the ground. Final decisions on the needs of each school will be made by local school leadership.” Democratic Congressman Lloyd Doggett opposes the proposed legislation.“Bills like that of Sen. Cornyn and Rep. Williams [are] really an excuse and a political contrivance to avoid taking bold action that’s needed to confront the National Rifle Association,” he said.He said he wants to see Congress pass laws that create more comprehensive background checks, provide funding for community health programs and ban assault rifles.

Banerjee said petrol and diesel prices are at an all-time high and it would lead to harassment of common people as prices of essential goods would increase as well. “The prices of petrol and diesel are sky high and it will leave an adverse effect on the farmers,” she said, adding that her political party has already given a call for a statewide protest rally.
