Articles are a written work published in a print or electronic medium. Articles may be for the purpose of propagating news, research results, academic analysis or debate. Articles are usually on a well-defined topic or topics that are related in some way, such as a factual account of a newsworthy event. The writer of a well-written article is seen as objective and showing all sides to an issue. The sources for a news story should be identified and reliable. The technique of show, don’t tell is applied. For the news story, details and elaboration are evident in the body of the news story and flow smoothly from the lead. Quotes are used to add interest and support to the story. Most news stories are structured using what is call an inverted pyramid. A featured article will follow a format appropriate for its type. In a news story, the introductory paragraph includes the most important facts and answers the questions: who, what, where, when, why and how.

How aware are you of your awareness?

How aware are you of your awareness? Do you know that you are highly aware? How much of the time do you aim to try to push it aside or avoid it, to then be overwhelmed by so much going on around you because you’re choosing not to be in the awareness of your awareness? Dr. Sarah here, and welcome to video 203.   https://youtu.be/ZG6QrqYT9HY So what would it be like to ask a question like, truth, what am I aware of right now? What am I picking up on? Is it mine? Is it someone else’s? What is this right now? That is tuning into your awareness. So, truth, how aware are you of your awareness?  A Space to BE With Take a moment to tune in and ask yourself the following questions. Do you find yourself avoiding your awareness? Have you ever considered that anxiety is really misidentified awareness? And have you ever considered choosing to BE aware of your awareness? What would it be like to acknowledge that as a possibility? And what would it take to choose that? What would that be like… to choose conscious aware as a way to generate and create something greater? What else is possible from here? Let’s Talk About It! When you are willing to be in the question and look [...]

That includes redesigned near front and rear numbers, a wider grille and updated taillights. “The XE has always been a sharp-looking car, but fairly subtle styling changes have actually done a lot to improve the look of the XE and keep it looking up to date,” said Daniel Golson of Car and Driver. “LED headlights with a more modern design are now standard, and the LED taillights have been redesigned to align with those of other Jaguar models.

Land Rover to release Range Rover Evoque in 2020

Different trims, designs give future owners options either on or off the road. On February 7 at the Chicago Auto Show, Land Rover conducted the first U.S. reveal for its next-generation Range Rover Evoque. Those in attendance got to witness the new vehicle go off-road on an indoor track. Once released, the Evoque will be available in five different trims: S, SE, R-Dynamic S, R-Dynamic SE and R-Dynamic HSE, with the automaker saying an additional first-edition model will be available only for the first year. The vehicle was originally introduced in London in November 2018, showing off features that include an all-new design language, advanced driver assistance technologies, a new hybrid-electric powertrain option and “groundbreaking” off-road technologies. This builds on the original model’s instantly-recognizable design. Land Rover calls the upcoming addition to its family “a sophisticated evolution of the original’s distinctive coupe-like silhouette.” The 2020 Evoque is a new kind of vehicle Land Rover said that at launch the 2.0-liter, 246 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder Evoque will be available with a 48-volt MHEV powertrain that harvests energy normally lost during deceleration, storing it in the underfloor battery.

The Layered Process Audit: Part1

Many organizations complain about having difficulty maintaining standards on the shop floor.  We often make improvement only to find the process regresses back to its previous state in a short period of time.  A closer look at the audit process will often show the following types of symptoms: Standard work is posted, but no one is following it. The sequence, timing, and content of work changes within each operator as well as from one operator to another. There are inconsistencies in incoming materials that cause over processing at the workstation and overburden to operators. This may lead to defects and operational delays. Poorly designed products and processes that cause unevenness and overburden. 5S is not maintained or consistent between one shift and another. Uncontrolled tools and materials are squirreled away in cabinets as a result of hoarding for just in case reasons. Non-conforming materials are not properly identified which exposes the operation to risk. These issues may indicate a general lack of management oversight of the process. Management oversight may typically occur in the form of system audits, control point checklists, or other structured reviews of the operation. An audit is essentially a check on the system to see that activities are [...]
