The base price is said to hover around the same as a 2018 Wrangler Unlimited. Trending in Canada Trending Videos See More Videos COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ‹ Previous Next ›center_img Former Ford Chief Technical Officer Raj Nair stated the Bronco’s size will fall somewhere between that original ’60s version and the 1980s Bronco II. He also said the 2020 Bronco will not be a reworked Everest, as previously inferred by a reddit post.Unlike the original Broncos, the new one won’t be getting a two-door version, only a four-door. Ford argues there is “no market” for a two-door SUV, despite the new Bronco’s aim to compete with the Jeep Wrangler, which has been selling in huge numbers in two- or four-door versions. The roof of the Bronco will be removable despite its four-door-only fate, however.RELATED Five things we want from the 2020 Ford BroncoThe new Bronco will be based on upcoming Ranger, so it’s possible they’ll share drivetrain specs as well. This means it could receive the 2.3-litre EcoBoost and a 10-speed automatic. Ford also confirmed recently a hybrid powertrain will make its way into the new SUV, which would be great for added torque off-road.Possibly the best news about the new Bronco is that it might get a seven-speed manual transmission. According to an anonymous source speaking to Jalopnik, Ford is developing a new transmission with Getrag called the MT-88 for the Bronco, supposedly to be paired with the 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6.The leaked info suggests the Bronco will indeed compete with the Wrangler, which is currently available with a six-speed manual.

Guyana Urges International Community to Await Final Declaration of Election Results

first_imgThe OAS Secretary-General, who had requested the special meeting of the Permanent Council said there was need to decrease the “political tensions in the country” and that government and all stakeholders should work together to strengthen democracy. Foreign Affairs Minister Dr. Karen Cummings, addressing a special sitting of the Permanent Council of the Organisation of American States (OAS) on the Guyana elections, said that President David Granger has on numerous occasions given an undertaking that he would abide by the decision of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) regarding the polls. He said the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has also made it imperative for Guyana to settle down with a duly elected government and deal with the situation. “Guyana is a democratic nation and intends to remain so. Further there is no breakdown in law and order in Guyana. Guyana continues to remain a peaceful, law abiding state and throughout this lengthy process, which has been guided by several constitutional provisions, the people of Guyana have remained patient, calm and peaceful. “Certainly it is not one if you are on the ground here that you would believe that type of chaotic situation exists. She said despite the delay, there is evidence that “Guyana remains governed by the rule of law with full respect for the separation of powers and the independence of the judiciary”. Almagro told the Council that there have been many “attempts to legally block the results” of the elections and that “Guyana has remained hostage to electoral officials”. WASHINGTON – Guyana on Tuesday urged the international community to await the final results of the disputed March 2 regional and general election while also criticising the position of the former Jamaica prime minister Bruce Golding that Georgetown had failed the litmus test of democracy and that there was gloom and doom in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) country. “We have had a long tradition going from Roman Dutch law and the English Common law …of a fine judicial system that Mr. Golding himself could attest to in Guyana and I believe that it is a very great characteristic that the Guyanese people are litigious and they would not go and…raid police stations and shoot them up or indulge in any other violent acts, but they will of course seek recourse in our courts. She said that the completion of the electoral process rests ‘solely in the hands’ of GECOM and that Granger “has stated publicly on numerous occasions that he would abide by any declarations that the GECOM chairperson makes in keeping with the laws of Guyana. “There must wholeheartedly be commended for this. They deserve a peaceful transition of government based on the majority vote reflected in the recount and in support of democracy and the rule of law. In his report to the OAS Permanent Council, Golding, who headed the OAS Observer mission to the elections gave what OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro described as “very professional report outlined the various stages taken to ensure the process was free, fair and transparent and all but indicated that the election was won by the main opposition People’s Progressive Party/ Civic (PPP/C) over the ruling coalition, a Partnership for National Unity (APNU). She said that GECOM cannot announce any winner of the elections “until the litigation process is completed. Bruce Golding addressing the OAS Permanent Council meeting on Guyana He said that even if this “debacle is soon and satisfactorily resolved it would perhaps take a generation and significant institutional reform for that damage to be fully repaired.center_img ‘This delegation wishes to reiterate and as recognised by the OAS Observer Mission and other international observers that the general and regional elections on March 2, 2020 were free, fair and orderly and conducted according to the laws of Guyana”. ‘The people of Guyana did not deserve this,” said the 72-year-old Golding, who served as prime minister of Jamaica from September 2007 to October 2011. He praised the Guyana population for waiting the outcome of the “process that was well conducted on election day” despite to railroad to declare the eventual winner. But she said after the voting had taken place “there were developments regarding our electoral process which caused an extensive delay in an official declaration of the results”. “That is very laudable in all what that is happening, the Guyanese people have remained calm…because they know of a system of law that they could have recourse to and there are winners and losers in the system and so we just have to abide by the outcome of the judicial process,’ Williams said. ‘The international community should therefore also be patient and not seek to influence unduly the constitutional and legal processes which are currently ongoing in Guyana,’ Cummings told the OAS meeting. “To date the chairperson of GECOM has not made a declaration on these elections,” she said reiterating the position adopted by Granger on the matter. “A litmus test of any democracy is the peaceful and orderly transfer of power if that is so ordained by the express will of the people. Sadly Guyana has failed that test,” Golding said, adding “the people of Guyana are not to be blamed , they expressed their will in a commendable peaceful and orderly manner on March 2, but the pernicious action of a few have reeked considerable damage to Guyana’s image and reputation”. But Guyana’s Attorney General, Senior Counsel, Basil Williams, who like Cummings said they had taken note of both Golding and Almagro’s statements, said “the picture of doom and gloom” painted in Guyana was not the reality. “We need to accept the results,” he said, urging that the transition should be “peaceful” Guyana’s Foreign Affairs Minister Dr. Karen Cummings He reiterated that there had been agreement by all stakeholders regarding the need for the recount to be undertaken in the presence of the CARICOM Observer team and that it was conducted in a “professional and transparent manner..

TransJakarta Umumkan Keikutsertaan di Busworld 2019

first_imgMematok tarif yang bersahabat dengan warga Jakarta, yaitu Rp3.500 per-penumpang, TransJakarta sempat mencatatkan rekor di tahun 2018 kemarin, dimana jaringan BRT pertama di Asia Tenggara dan Selatan ini berhasil mengangkut 730.000 penumpang per-hari. Angka ini juga mengalami peningkatan dari angka 331.000 penumpang per-harinya di tahun 2015. Sekitar 189,8 juta penumpang telah menggunakan layanan TransJakarta hanya di tahun 2018 saja, dan bukan tidak mungkin jika TransJakarta menargetkan angka yang lebih fantastis lagi di tahun berikutnya – satu juta penumpang setiap harinya.Keikutsertaan TransJakarta dalam pagelaran Busworld yang dihelat pada tanggal 20 hingga 22 Maret 2019 mendatang tentu mendapat sambutan hangat dari panitia pelaksana.Sejak diputuskan untuk mulai beroperasi di jalanan Ibukota sejak 15 Januari 2004 silam, TransJakarta seolah tumbuh menjadi opsi berkendara baru bagi warga Jakarta dan para pendatang – membawa budaya baru dalam berkendara. Baik untuk pembuat kebijakan maupun untuk penduduk kota, TransJakarta merupakan salah satu instrumen pembelajaran dalam menyambut mobilitas perkotaan yang berkelanjutan.Baca Juga: Tandatangani MoU, TransJakarta dan MRTJ Siap Integrasikan Moda Transportasi Berbasis Massal15 tahun sudah TransJakarta menjadi simbol pembaruan transportasi berbasis massal yang skalanya tidak hanya sebatas di Jakarta saja, melainkan seluruh Indonesia. Menerapkan sistem yang lebih ‘manusiawi’ bagi para penggunanya, TransJakarta pun seolah menjelma menjadi satu contoh dan bahan pembelajaran tentang bagaimana caranya menyediakan sarana transportasi umum bagi warga dengan harga yang terjangkau dan dibarengi dengan pelayanan yang profesional.Tidak hanya berperan sebagai pencetus sistem BRT di kawasan Asia Tenggara dan Selatan, TransJakarta juga dijadikan tolak ukur sistem serupa oleh beberapa kota lain di Indonesia, seperti Semarang, Yogyakarta, hingga Medan. Sejak kemunculannya, istilah ‘kejar setoran’ yang kerap dilakukan oleh para pengemudi bus guna mendapat penghasilan yang lebih besar kini sudah semakin samar terdengar – walaupun belum sepenuhnya hilang. Sumber: istimewa Moda transportasi berbasis massal, TransJakarta merupakan jaringan Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) terpanjang di dunia dengan total panjang 251 km. Dengan melayani sekira 663.000 penumpang setiap harinya, dan terhitung sejak Januari 2019 kemarin, perusahaan yang kini ditunggangi oleh Agung Wicaksono (ex Direktur Operasi dan Pemeliharaan MRT Jakarta) cs. ini tercatat memiliki 155 rute – peningkatan yang cukup signifikan dibanding 41 rute di tahun 2015 kemarin.Baca Juga: 15 Tahun Beroperasi, TransJakarta Targetkan 236 Rute di Akhir Tahun 2019Tidak jumlah rute saja yang meningkat, pun dengan jumlah armada yang juga mengalam peningkatan. Berdasarkan siaran pers yang diterima oleh KabarPenumpang.com, Rabu (28/2/2019), total armada TransJakarta mengalami peningkatan hampir 300 persen – dari 605 bus di tahun 2015 menjadi 1.500 bus di tahun 2017. Bahkan, PT Transportasi Jakarta siap untuk menggandakan jumlah armadanya menjadi 3.000 unit dalam waktu dekat ini.

Tyson Fury on what he’ll do if Luis Ortiz beats Deontay Wilder and his message for Andy Ruiz Jr.

first_imgMORE: Fury predicts Ruiz will beat Joshua again”If I was a promoter, and I’m not, my goal would be to make as much money as possible for both fighters and to go where the most money is for the fighters,” Fury said. “So, that’s what I think Eddie Hearn is doing. Saudi Arabia is an off-the-beat place and not usually a boxing place. Then, neither was Zaire or Manila, where [Muhammad] Ali fought George Foreman and Joe Frazier. Those countries put on significant events there and put their countries on the map.”How you become a global superstar is traveling to different countries and fighting there,” he continued. “Muhammad Ali was a classic example of going around the world, boxing in many different countries. If Andy Ruiz wants to be great, it shouldn’t make a difference where he boxes in the world. His concern should be to win and be viewed by as many people as possible.” To cap things off, Joshua and Ruiz engaged in a back-and-forth war, including arguably the best round of 2019 when Joshua dropped Ruiz once, and Ruiz sent Joshua to the canvas twice. Ultimately, Ruiz scored two more knockdowns in the seventh round to pull off the upset.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearJoshua and Ruiz will meet again on Dec. 7, while Wilder and Ortiz are scheduled to face off sometime in the fall. If Wilder wins and Fury wins his Sept. 14 fight against Otto Wallin, then their rematch is set for Feb. 22.But what happens if Fury gets by Wallin and Ortiz shakes things up in the division by beating Wilder? Would the “Gypsy King” be willing to face Ortiz or does the landscape change for him?”To be honest, it really doesn’t matter for whatever opponent is next for me, whether Wilder wins or Ortiz wins,” Fury told Sporting News. “I’m sure if Ortiz wins, there would be an immediate trilogy, so I wouldn’t be fighting both of those guys straight away. Then I’d be looking at the winner of Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua.”Criticism has come from every circle for the Joshua-Ruiz sequel taking place in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, with reasons including the country’s human rights record and the death of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi. When the bout was made official by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, Ruiz was reluctant at first to travel to the Middle East, but ultimately wound up agreeing to the fight. Fury can understand where Hearn is coming from in staging the highly anticipated rematch in the Middle East. What Fury doesn’t understand is the reluctance of Ruiz to travel abroad when perhaps the sport’s most celebrated icon competed in different parts of the world. In the last 18 months, the heavyweight division has been on an ascent not seen since the days of Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield. Leading the pack is unified world champion Andy Ruiz Jr., WBC titlist Deontay Wilder, lineal champion Tyson Fury and former unified titleholder Anthony Joshua.Everything started with Wilder’s thrilling come-from-behind stoppage win over Luis Ortiz in March 2018. Then Wilder and Fury battled to a split draw last December in one of the best fights of 2018, which had the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist score what appeared to be an emphatic knockout in the 12th round, only for Fury to rise from the dead and make it to the final bell.last_img read more
