Why is it that Bloomberg reports that the Japanese planemaker is a competitive threat even as its new RJ has seen repeated delays and entry into service is now estimated for 2017 a full year later than BBD-B's CS plane? It appears delays don't matter for Mistubishi, but in the case of BBD similar delays were viewed as a disaster that threatens the success of the CS planes. Bloomberg spin at its finest...
@Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. is aiming to change that with Japan’s first new passenger plane in more than four decades -- and its first passenger jet ever. The Mitsubishi Regional Jet will make its debut flight in the second half of October, for about an hour, the Nagoya-based company said in a statement Monday. “This battle is going to get nasty,” Addison Schonland, a Baltimore-based partner at aviation consultant AirInsight, said in a telephone interview Monday. “Embraer and Bombardier are not going to give up the fight. We don’t know if there’s room for three players. The pie’s not getting bigger.” Delivery of the MRJ has been delayed three times, with the plane now set to be handed to ANA in 2017, almost four years late. The plane will come in 78- or 92-seat models, with the larger one set to debut first.
My impression was that each nation decides what sanctions to implement independently of other nations in the alliance. I can see how the EU countries would act together, but the USA and Canada appear to have leeway in choosing their target for sanctions.
You buy us VMW shareholders out if you want, NOT the other way around.
@NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of VMware (VMW - Get Report) gained 2.1% to close at $79.15 Monday after the software virtualization company's CEO Pat Gelsinger said the company isn't interested in acquiring its parent company EMC (EMC). Gelsinger told Network World that the current "Federation structure" is the best option for customers of VMware and EMC, the companies themselves, and their employees. "Being bigger and more strategic as a whole is a more powerful position for the companies," the CEO said.
Why would the founder and CEO who owns ~40% (16M shares) of the company buy more shares?
@Jonathan Oringer (Insider Trades), CEO and 10% owner of Shutterstock Inc. (SSTK), bought 100,000 shares on Aug. 27. The average price per share was $32.56, for a total transaction amount of $3,256,000.
The national park in which the mountain is situated is already named Denali, so renaming the mountain does not add any new perspective. Instead it only removes a historical reference that has existed for over a century and is recognized the world over. Stupid.
Funny how pud refuses to answer this simple question but posts hundreds of comments on the subject of mass vs. weight. You'd think it would be a no-brainer for a savant like him.
BFD... Like China government economists don't have M.Sc and PhD' degrees too huh. You seriously think just because someone has a university degree or two that they can't be complete lying cheating deceptive sleezeballs? Now THAT's funny!
If offered a choice between one of two 10cm x 10cm x 10cm bars of gold, one manufactured on the Moon and the other produced on Earth, which one would you pick?
What do you know that the ratings agencies don't?
• S&P – BB, stable outlook
• Moody’s – Ba1, negative outlook
• Fitch – BB+, stable outlook
cmon pud, it's a simple question... which bar of gold would you choose - the one made on the moon or the one made on earth? Obviously each has a different weight on the respective celestial bodies where they were produced... should be a no-brainer for a savant like you
If Obama rejects KeystoneXL based on his own criteria for approval that the State Dept. has already confirmed the project meets, he will expose himself as a lying hypocrite. Seems fitting though that he would be willing to go down in history as such to ensure the victory of another lying hypocrite aka Hillary C. USA politics is an ugly mess compared to Canadian politics, despite what lobsterhead would have people believe.
@“I haven’t made a final determination on it, but what I’ve said is, ‘we’re not going to authorize a pipeline that benefits largely a foreign company if it can’t be shown that it is safe and if it can’t be shown that overall it would not contribute to climate change,’” Obama said on Friday
imagine that... a socialist government that understands how to manage the economy. lobsterhead and his conservative anti-union pals must be fuming...
If gold ore was mined on the Moon and refined to produce a 1000 cm^3 bar, and a gold bar of the same dimensions was produced on Earth, then both bars of gold were shipped up to the space station, which bar would you take if you were offered one of the two?
If a kilogram of gold was mined and refined on the moon and another kilogram was similarly mined and refined on earth, what would be the USD value of these two bars of gold in space?
Physics is universal. It does not care what planet or satellite or asteroid you live on.
ON EARTH WEIGHT 200 lbf MASS 200 lbm
IN SPACE WEIGHT 0 lbf MASS 200 lbm
ON MOON WEIGHT 33 lbf MASS 200 lbm
