Hotpoint tells tumble dryer owners: unplug faulty machines due to fire risk

Whirlpool – which also owns Indesit, Creda and Proline – changes advice after criticism from trading standards and Which?The maker of Hotpoint and Indesit tumble dryers has changed its advice to the owners of millions of potentially dangerous machines, telling customers to unplug the appliances and stop using them until they are repaired.Whirlpool – whose brands also include Creda, Swan and Proline – on Wednesday updated the advice on its website after receiving two enforcement notices from Peterborough trading standards. In December the trading standards office was threatened with a judicial review by consumer group Which? for its handling of the “fiasco” of the faulty machines. Whirlpool has also been advised to publicise the changed advice to consumers through advertisements in national newspapers, through social media and in stores. Continue reading...

Russian astronomers map out the heavens

The MGU catalog includes every galaxy known to science. They are located within a radius greater than 30 billion light-years from our planet. The catalog details 800 thousand galaxies, their stellar composition and brightness in the electromagnetic spectrum - from ultraviolet to infrared. According to the researchers, the project was made possible thanks to big data. The publicly available work is called the Reference Catalog of Galaxy SEDs. Its analysis of emission lines and their shapes is more detailed and accurate than any other, say the scientists. So far, the information collected pertains only to galaxies that are close (by cosmological standards), i.e. those with a red shift (a displacement in the spectral lines towards longer wavelengths when moving away from the observer) of no more than 0.3. There is less information about the early Universe. However, the astronomers plan to add a further 300-400 galaxies in the near future. Rose, UGC 1810 and UGC 1813 / Nasa, EsaThe disc of the galaxy UGC 1810 in the constellation of Andromeda is visibly deformed by tidal forces emanating from the rose-shaped neighboring UGC 1813. The necklace of blue diamonds at the top is formed from clusters of hot, bright young stars. The Whirlpool Galaxy, M51 / Martin Pugh/NASAThis galaxy is very close to its companion NGC 5195. Due to the swirling spiral, it appears as if the main galaxy M51 is pulling all the matter towards itself, turning the other into a blurry lump and giving the impression of a whirlpool. Andromeda, M31 / Lorenzo Comolli/Nasa This huge galaxy is one of the closest to Earth and is visible to the naked eye. Scientists believe that in a couple of billion years it will crash into the Milky Way and swallow it up. Cartwheel Galaxy / ESA, NASA, HubbleThis galaxy is said to have undergone a head-on collision with another about 200 million years ago, causing a powerful shock wave. Star formations appeared around the central part. M64 / Michael Miller, Jimmy Walker/NasaThe structure of this galaxy contains prominent dust lanes concealing stars behind. Ring galaxy Hoag's Object / NASA/JPL-CaltechThe first ring galaxy to be discovered. There is no consensus regarding the processes that formed such objects. According to one hypothesis, they were formed as a result of one galaxy passing through the disc of another. M82 / NASA, ESAThis galaxy is adjacent to our own Milky Way, and also consists of spiral arms. The Sombrero Galaxy (M104 or NGC 4594) / Giovanni Paglioli/NASAThe Sombrero Galaxy is so named because its dark dust lane gives it the appearance of a sombrero — a wide-brimmed Mexican hat. Galaxy NGC 3370 / Nasa, EsaIn late 1994 a star inside this galaxy exploded with such force that it momentarily eclipsed billions of other celestial bodies. Light from the explosion reached Earth.

Off-Shorers Should Shut Up

Whirlpool, the big appliance manufacturer, stressed in recent years its preference to make it in America. In 2013, it actually moved dishwasher manufacturing jobs back to the United States from Mexico. The next year, it announced a $40 million investment in its Greenville, Ohio KitchenAid plant, adding 400 jobs. Last year, Whirlpool CEO Jeff Fettig said the company would spend another $40 million to expand its Findlay, Ohio dishwasher plant, adding 50 jobs and raising to $1 billion its investment in U.S. manufacturing since 2010. Last week, Intel announced it would spend $7 billion to upgrade an Arizona facility and employ 3,000 people to fabricate advanced computer wafers – meaning its CEO Brian Krzanich chose the United States over Ireland, Israel and China where Intel already produces silicon wafers. So it makes sense that Fettig and Krzanich serve on President Donald Trump’s new Manufacturing Jobs Initiative. The initiative is supposed to help the president promote U.S. job and manufacturing growth. Curiously, though, named to that same 28-member committee are at least seven CEOs who have recently – and sometimes infamously – offshored manufacturing and jobs. They include Greg Hayes, CEO of United Technologies, the corporation that is shipping Indiana jobs from its Carrier subsidiary to Mexico. The performance of the manufacturing council is crucial to large swaths of workers who voted for President Trump based on his promises to stop unfair trade and resurrect American manufacturing. In his inauguration speech, the president told those voters that he would enact “America first” policies. It is no “America first” policy to send jobs from two profitable Carrier plants in Indiana to Mexico for the sole purpose of making extra bucks. That kind of offshoring exhibits a greed first mindset. The CEOs who have pursued that philosophy should shut up and take advice from the committee’s American job creators. The U.S. job generators on the committee include the likes of Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla. His cars were rated the most American-made electrics for content and assembly for the second year in a row in 2016. The council also includes Mario Longhi, the CEO of U.S. Steel, and Klaus Kleinfeld, who last fall became CEO of Arconic, but who for eight years before that was CEO of Alcoa, the corporation that split to create Alcoa and Arconic. U.S. Steel and Alcoa have suffered from unfair trade, so Longhi and Kleinfeld have a strong interest in policies that support American manufacturing. But, oddly, placed on the committee was recently retired Caterpillar CEO Doug Oberhelman, who announced two years ago that the corporation would move 230 jobs making gear and engine oil pumps and valves from its plant in Joliet, Ill., to a factory in Monterrey, Mexico. Another advisor is Nucor CEO John Ferriola, who is building a new mill in Mexico instead of the United States. The joint venture with a Japanese company will make steel for the auto industry. Dana CEO Jim Kamsickas is on the committee too. This month, Dana is closing a truck parts manufacturing plant in Kentucky, shifting the work out of the country and killing 180 good, family-supporting American jobs. In 2007, it closed plants in Syracuse, Ind., and Cape Girardeau, Mo., and shipped the auto parts manufacturing work to Mexico. More than 250 American workers lost their jobs. This is what happens when so many corporations transport factories to Mexico. Then the supply chain – the manufacturing of components like engines and auto parts and steel – moves to Mexico too. For example, while Ford announced in January that it would invest $700 million and create 700 new jobs in Michigan, the auto company still intends to transfer production of its small car, the Focus, from the United States to Mexico. And yet, Ford CEO Mark Fields was chosen for the American manufacturing initiative. The United States lost 5 million manufacturing jobs since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) took effect. Robots didn’t do it. Trade deficits did. Corporations like Carrier and Rexnord that offshore American factories then ship the manufactured products back to the United States kill good American jobs while ballooning the trade deficit. Those are the problems that workers who voted for Donald Trump wanted him to solve. They want those factories and those jobs back. That, however, is the opposite of the longstanding philosophy of General Electric. Its former CEO Jack Welch famously said, “Ideally, you’d have every plant you own on a barge to move with currencies and changes in the economy.” In other words, when a country like China manipulates the value of its currency and suppresses its workers’ wages, GE would uproot production from Peoria and float it to Beijing – allegiance to the United States be damned. That’s exactly what General Electric does under its current CEO Jeff Immelt. The show 60 Minutes described GE this way in 2009: “No company has gone global more aggressively than General Electric, the conglomerate that makes everything from refrigerators to MRI machines to jet engines.” Between 2004 and 2014, the number of GE employees in the United States declined by nearly 18 percent, from 165,000 to 136,000, while the number abroad rose 19 percent, from 142,000 to 169,000. Immelt was GE chairman that entire time. So it’s confounding that he is a member of an initiative that’s supposed to prioritize American jobs. Under Immelt’s leadership, not only does GE move factories, it uses offshoring as a threat when lawmakers don’t cave to its demands. In September of 2015, two months after Congress declined to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank, Immelt announced that GE, which had been among the largest benefactors of the bank, would move 500 U.S. jobs overseas. It was Republicans in Congress who had called the bank corporate welfare and refused to renew its charter. The bank provides financing for transactions that commercial lenders decline as too risky. But within six weeks of GE’s threats, Congress restored the bank, with a majority of Republicans suddenly on board. Frankly, it’s unpatriotic CEOs like Immelt and Hayes who should be stuck on a barge and shipped offshore. An American Manufacturing Jobs Initiative needs more CEOs who actually focus on making it in America. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Правила игры // в импортозамещении по-американски смущают корреспондента отдела экономполитики Татьяну Едовину

Первая неделя президентства Дональда Трампа оказалась крайне богата на резонансные новости -- от выхода США из соглашения о Транстихоокеанском партнерстве и строительства стены с Мексикой до ограничений на въезд гражданам некоторых ближневосточных стран. Экономические последствия этих решений для новой администрации, вероятно, имеют второстепенное значение и направлены в первую очередь на демонтаж наследия Барака Обамы -- чего, впрочем, нельзя сказать о разворачивающейся дискуссии о будущем налогового кодекса. Пока Дональд Трамп отдает предпочтение тем компаниям, из-за падения доходов которых и появился так называемый ржавый пояс (штаты США, где раньше были сосредоточены тяжелая промышленность и автопром). Еще две группы ближайших лоббистов -- компании, зависящие от госзаказа (Lockheed Martin, Space X), а также производители, существенная часть продаж которых приходится на американский рынок (International Paper, Whirlpool и т. п.). Это на них, судя по всему, рассчитаны предложения о пересмотре условий NAFTA…

Квартальная прибыль Whirlpool не дотянула до прогнозов аналитиков

Американский производитель бытовой техники Whirlpool отчитался о не дотянувшей до прогнозов аналитиков квартальной прибыли. Так, в четвертом квартале чистая прибыль компании практически не изменилась по сравнению с аналогичным периодом прошлого года, составив $180 млн. При этом прибыль на акцию увеличилась до $2,36 ввиду сокращения общего количества привилегированных бумаг. Без учета некоторых статей прибыль составила $4,33 на акцию при средних прогнозах аналитиков на уровне $4,44 на акцию. Выручка в рассматриваемом периоде увеличилась на 1,7% г/г до $5,66 млрд, в то время как аналитики в среднем ожидали $5,64 млрд. Компания ожидает, что в 2017 г. скорректированная прибыль на акцию окажется в диапазоне $15,25-16,25, тогда как аналитики в среднем прогнозируют $15,96 на бумагу.

Трамп пообещал лидерам бизнеса существенные заградительные тарифы и снижение регуляции

Президент США Дональд Трамп пообещал “весьма существенный” заградительный тариф, а также снижение регуляции на 75% в ходе завтрака с лидерами делового мира. Встреча корпоративных лидеров в Белом Доме состоялась в первый же рабочий день президента, обещавшего расширить возможности для американских рабочих и бизнеса в ходе своей избирательной кампании. Трамп планирует продолжить тему в понедельник подписанием указов по торговым и трудовым вопросам перед встречей после обеда с рабочими и руководителями профсоюзов.   На завтраке у Трампа была также консультативная группа в сфере промышленности во главе с Эндрю Ливерисом, исполнительным директором Dow Chemical Co. На встрече Трамп заявил о том, что сократит налоги, чтобы придать импульс экономическому росту. “Мы будем массивно сокращать налоги для среднего класса и компаний”, - заявил Трамп директорам. Он предположил, что снижение регуляции бизнеса - особый фокус его экономического плана, добавив также, что по его наблюдениям снижение регуляции дает более сильный импульс росту, нежели снижение налогов. Некоторые деловые лидеры, присутствовавшие на утренней встрече с Трампом: Майкл Делл, председателя и СЕО Dell Inc., Джеффа Феттига, директор Whirlpool Corp.; Майкла Филдса, директор Ford Motor Co.; Алекса Горски, директор Johnson & Johnson; Мэрилин Хьюсон, директор Lockheed Martin Corp.;  Клаус Кляйнфелд, директор Arconic Inc., Элон Макс, директор Tesla.
