Close to 700 men, women and children have been sheltered in the large industrial tents for the last nine months.Acting as the Housing Authority, the city council agreed Tuesday to terms of a 9 month contract extension with Alpha Project, Father Joe’s Villages, and Veterans Village. There are two big changes in the new contract. Spending increased by nearly $1 million in the new contract to pay for 14 additional full time positions. In recommendations from a third party evaluator called Focus Strategies, the evaluator said more case managers and housing specialists could help people make a faster transition from the tents to stable, more permanent housing.The contract also includes a revised goal for those who are in need of more permanent housing. In the previous contract, the target was to move 65% of shelter occupants into housing. The new agreement knocks that goal down to 30% which the evaluator considered more realistic. Mayor Kevin Faulconer conceded that the city does not have enough low cost housing, but he said the city has been successful in helping more than 330 people find housing since the tents opened.

Great now the Land Rover Discovery SVX is dead too

Andrew Hoyle/CNET At the end of January, Land Rover announced that it had canceled the Range Rover SV Coupe, a $295,000 monument to SUV excess, as part of an overall belt-tightening. But that wasn’t the only pie-in-the-sky project to get nixed.Land Rover confirmed to Autocar that there is no V8 slated for the Discovery anymore, and thus, it will not offer the Discovery SVX for sale as it was originally shown. The premise of the Land Rover Discovery SVX was pretty simple — take a Disco and make it more. Under the hood went JLR’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8, putting out about 518 horsepower and 561 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the stronger engine, the SVX also received modifications to the chassis and suspension that gave it even more off-road cred than it already had. I’m going to miss those orange accents, too. All is not lost, however. A Land Rover spokesperson told Autocar that the automaker will keep the SVX badge and its theme alive. However, specific models were not mentioned, and neither was a timeline, so we’ll have to wait with bated breath until Land Rover is able to build the SVX it wants. Something tells me the upcoming Defender would make a good platform for ultra-rugged off-road modification, but that’s just me spitballing.Things haven’t been too pretty for Jaguar Land Rover lately. While it did achieve critical success with the launch of the electric I-Pace, the automaker announced in January that it would lay off approximately 10 percent of its workforce to rein in costs. A looming “no-deal” Brexit could further complicate matters. SUVs Luxury cars Land Rover Share your voice 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger valuelast_img read more

Childhood stress may make women gain weight

first_imgChildhood stress may have a bigger influence on weight gain by women than stress during adulthood, says a study.Interestingly, the study that appeared online in the journal Social Science & Medicine found that neither childhood nor adult stress was associated with weight gain for men. “These findings add to our understanding of how childhood stress is a more important driver of long term weight gain than adult stress, and how such processes differ for men and women,” said one of the researchers Hui Liu, associate professor of sociology at Michigan State University in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The researchers analysed data from a survey of 3,617 people (2,259 women and 1,358 men) who were interviewed four times in a 15-year period.Childhood stress was measured on a range of family-related stressors that occurred at age 16 or younger such as economic hardship, divorce, at least one parent with mental health problem and never knowing one’s father.Adult stress included such factors as job loss, death of a significant other and parental and care-provider stress. The researchers found that women who experienced higher levels of childhood stress gained weight more rapidly than women who experienced less childhood stress.

It may be possible that women eat more to cope with stress, whereas men are more likely to engage in less weight-related strategies such as withdrawing or drinking alcohol,” Liu added.last_img read more

Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. 2 min read A workload shift at HTC will increase the duties of co-founder and chairwoman Cher Wang as the company focuses on regaining market share.Wang will take on operational duties for the Taiwanese smartphone maker, and CEO Peter Chou will lessen his load at the company to focus on innovation, according to the Financial Times.In what is being touted as a temporary move, Wang will expand her day-to-day presence from two to six days a week to work on sales, marketing and supplier relationships, according to the FT. Chou, who has served as the company’s CEO for nearly a decade, will concentrate on product development.“I have become very focused in the past couple of months. Before that I was too busy,” Chou told the FT. “I took on too many things. I need to be more focused on innovation and [the] product portfolio.”Related: HTC’s Cher Wang on Innovation and the ‘It’ Product It’s been a rocky period for the company. In October, the smartphone and tablet maker reported a bigger than expected quarterly loss. It was the first quarterly loss for the company since going public. Some wondered if Chou would stick around but, in June, he reportedly said he had no plans to leave HTC.Earlier this year, the company introduced the HTC One, a smartphone expected to be a competitor to Apple and Samsung mobile devices, but failed to make a huge dent in the market.Last year, Wang spoke to Entrepreneur.com about staying ahead of trends. “We must always keep an eye on our environment, to keep track of what changes are happening in technology, in infrastructure, in markets, in how people across the world are living their lives, working and communicating. We need to anticipate these trends and innovate to meet them. Within HTC, hundreds of ideas are tested and discarded to find those rare ideas that define the HTC user experience,” she said.
