Alfa Romeo may be working on a 350-HP Giulia

first_img At least the truth lies somewhere in the future. Buy It! Princess Diana’s humble little 1981 Ford Escort is up for auction An engagement gift from Prince Charles, the car is being sold by a Princess Di “superfan” While Alfa Romeo‘s return to North America is more than welcome, there’s a gap in the current Giulia lineup – the base engine is a 2.0-litre turbo-four with 280 horsepower, while the top-spec Giulia Quadrifoglio gets a 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6 with 505 HP.Yet there’s nothing in between to satisfy customers who want a more powerful, four-cylinder Giulia. Well, as some leaked documents suggest, FCA is working to fill the gap with a 350-horsepower variant of the Giulia, known as the Veloce.But where things get confusing is the fact that a Giulia Veloce is already offered in markets outside of North America, but with the base, 280-horsepower engine. Moreover, while FCA says there are “no plans for any other engines for [the] Giulia for [the] 2018 model year, besides the 2.0L and 2.9L [gasoline] engines,” rumours suggest a Giulia Veloce will be in the cards for the 2019 model year, with its 280-horsepower turbo-four paired to a 48-volt electrical system bumping total output to 350 HP.

first_imgRelatedMinistry Aims to Train 1,000 Health Care Workers for Ebola Response FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Advertisements Photo: JIS PhotographerJamaica Defence Force (JDF) personnel utilize heavy-duty vehicles in the clearing of a gully in West Kingston on October 30. The work forms part of the national health emergency vector control clean-up campaign aimed at destroying mosquito breeding sites. The National Health Emergency Vector Control Clean Up campaign moved into the West Kingston community this week as the Government continues to take steps to contain the transmission of the Chikungunya Virus (CHIKV).On Thursday, October 30, members of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF), and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), went into the area with heavy duty equipment to clear a major gully which runs from a section of Tivoli Gardens to Marcus Garvey Drive.Coordinator of the national response team, who led the West Kingston clean-up effort, Colonel Daniel Pryce, said 19 loads, or 300 tonnes, of solid waste were removed during the exercise.Colonel Pryce told JIS News that the site was among those identified as a high-risk mosquito breeding site by a Ministry of Health survey.“We are guided by the surveys that have been done by the Ministry of Health, that has mapped breeding sites…we give those sites priority, irrespective of where they are,” he said.He said that in the days ahead, clean-up activities will continue in Tivoli Gardens, Denham Town and Hannah Town.“There is a roadway (in Denham Town), that we need to clear of debris and small shrubs growing in the roadway. Also, Drummond Street in Hannah Town, and garbage sites in Tivoli Gardens will be cleared,” he informed.He said similar exercises will be carried out in other communities in Kingston, St. Andrew and St. Catherine to rid communities of mosquito breeding sites.Colonel Pryce is urging residents to assist the effort and keep areas that have been cleaned clear of garbage.The national health emergency vector control clean-up campaign is spearheaded by Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer and involves stakeholders in the Ministry of Health; the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management; the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF); the Jamaica Emergency Employment (JEEP) Secretariat; and the Ministry of Finance and Planning.Prime Minister, the Most. Hon. Portia Simpson Miller, on October 14, announced that $500 million has been provided to address some critical areas of the national health emergency response.The objective, she said, is to reduce mosquito breeding sites starting with the worst affected areas as indicated by the Health Ministry’s mapping project.The allocation is as follows: $150 million to meet some critical emergency needs of the Ministry of Health; $70 million for Parish Councils – $5 million per parish; $126 million for activities led by Members of Parliament – $2 million per constituency; and the remaining 154 million dollars will be utilized for additional clean-up and vector control activities based on reports from the Ministry of Health in consultation with other stakeholders.These amounts are in addition to $131 million which has been provided from the Consolidated Fund to the National Solid Waste Management Authority to clear the backlog in garbage collection.

Video: UWF women’s golf volunteers at Ronald McDonald House

first_imgRonald McDonald House of Northwest FloridaPENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida women’s golf team spent time in late February volunteering their time for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida. The student-athletes hosted a bingo night and also baked cookies and brownies for the families at the Ronald McDonald House. “I think this event gave our student-athletes an opportunity to see a part of the community that they had never seen before,” head coach Bryan Clarke said. “It’s always touching to go into a place like that where people are on hard times and be able to bring them something else from their daily routine. It’s also nice for our team to see how fortunate they are to be student-athletes, so it brings things into perspective a little bit.” The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northwest Florida is to be the best Home-Away-From-Home and source of respite and resources for children and families of children suffering a medical crisis. For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS#Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
