We should give a significant performance this year,” he emphasised.He is looking towards the senior players to inspire the team, which was selected from players participating in the ongoing local league.The full team is: Men – Albert Bailey (Portmore Contenders), Colin Chandia (Chelsea Precision), David Green (BOJ Gators), Dwight Smith (Chelsea Precision), Evon Faulkner (BOJ Gators), Lynford Jonas (Dynasty MoBay), Mark Birthwright (Central Miners) and Winston Ferguson (Portmore Stimulus).Women – Carol Cheese (Shooting Stars), Catherine Stewart (BOJ Gators), Jennifer Reid (MoBay Darters), Lorraine Nembhard (Portmore Contenders) and Marvel Brown (MoBay Darters).

(AP Photo/Jay LaPrete) Acura brings NSX specialty car production to US MARYSVILLE, Ohio – The next generation of Acura’s top-of-the-line NSX is ready to begin full production in Ohio in late April — the first time in the car’s 27-year history that it will be made outside of Japan.Honda Motor Co. confirmed the start of production of its new specialty car on Thursday. It will make 800 per year in Ohio for global shipment.Honda’s decision to build its top Acura specialty car in North America is a conscious decision to tap the U.S. market and distinguish itself from European competitors, such as Lamborghini, Ferrari and others, said engineering project leader Clement D’Souza.“The new level of craftsmanship that we are promoting through this car, the technology that we are putting into this car, cascading down to the rest of our vehicles, will also help the brand image,” he said. “Overall, companywide, it’s going to be a huge boost not only to the Acura brand, but also to the Honda brand global-wide.”The 2017 NSX starts at $156,000. It features a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with 573 horsepower that is hand-built in nearby Anna, Ohio. It’s an all-wheel-drive hybrid, with three electric motors that assist in acceleration and handling.It’s been about four years in development. Acura announced plans to bring back the NSX — which was last produced in 2005 — at the 2012 auto show in Detroit.Matt DeLorenzo, managing editor at Kelley Blue Book, said the U.S. is going to be one of the car’s biggest markets and Acura is looking to American production of the automobile as both a convenience and a selling point to customers.A gleaming, spacious production facility — with windowed views onto painting, quality testing and other processes often hidden from view — is intended so potential buyers can see the process up close, he said. The centrally located Midwest state could be an attractive closer-to-home alternative than Honda’s Takanezawa plant in Japan.“It’s a lot easier to get to Columbus than it is to Tochigi,” DeLorenzo said.The plant where the car is being built was constructed from the ground up to incorporate what the company says is an ideal synergy of human labour and machine technology.Each component is hand assembled and each of 547 bolts is hand-started and manually tightened by a master technician. Meanwhile, significant portions of the welding, painting and assembly work are completed by highly specialized robots, one nicknamed the T-Rex.“We have questioned everything,” said Doug Duff, who handles vehicle quality testing at the centre. “By questioning everything we have done, it’s led to a lot of new ideas.” That includes 21 U.S. patent applications associated with the manufacturing process.The facility has been operating four, 10-hour shifts a week as ramps up to a full production schedule of 8 to 10 cars daily.Its assembly line is also operated by around 100 humans, who manually push vehicles mounted on dollies from station to station every 62 minutes. By contrast, a traditional assembly station at the company’s neighbouring Honda plant is completed in 52 seconds.Executive vice-president Tom Shoupe said it’s significant that, over Acura’s now 30-year history, more than half of its cars sold in the U.S. were also manufactured in North America. He said it is part of a company vision laid out in 1987 to bring its products closer to its customers.The 9,000 NSX’s sold in the U.S. between 1991 and 2005 were made in Japan.

Rap pioneer Chuck D was announced as chairman of the museum’s celebrity board and is expected to help lead outreach. Having raised $20 million with comprehensive plans in place, the UHHM is raising another $50 million for its launch.UHHM Chairman of the Board Kurtis Blow and director Rocky Bucano led the development effort’s plans for 50,000 square feet within a 25-floor high-rise at 69 East 149th Street in the South Bronx. Cultural ambassadors assisting UHHM include Big Daddy Kane, Fab Five Freddy, Grandmaster Flash, LL Cool J and Rakim. UHHM Names Chuck D Celebrity Chair universal-hip-hop-museum-names-chuck-d-celebrity-board-chair “The credibility he brings to our team is mammoth,” said Kurtis Blow about Chuck D. “He also understands the importance of the UHHM and vows to let the world know via a star-studded celebrity board in the near future. Flame on!”Museum and architectural designers behind the effort include Ralph Appelbaum Associates, Mike Ford and Hamilton Anderson Associates, with backgrounds including the Motown Museum and the National Museum of African American History and Culture.”Hip-hop is 45 years old now, and it’s the only cultural genre that doesn’t have its own space to preserve and celebrate its history,” said Bucano. “Cornell and Harvard have hip-hop archives; the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture is devoted to the African American experience in totality, not just hip-hop. The UHHM will be dedicated solely to hip-hop.”Hip-hop is still breaking new ground, and UHHM commemorates its beloved history while nurturing the continued growth of the genre.
