Farmington Hills officials to consider road funding question tonight

first_img Farmington Voice Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window) Reported by Farmington Hills officials will talk tonight about a revised ballot proposal designed to change the way the city funds road repairs.Last summer, the state attorney general’s office denied ballot proposal language for a city-wide 2.5 mill levy that would have exempted homeowners who are already paying a special assessment for their subdivision road repairs.On the council’s 7:30 p.m. agenda, the new proposal asks for 2.75 mills, which would generate more than $9.2 million in the first year. It would also “zero-out” unpaid special assessment balances and refund special assessments paid off as of November 6, 2018.Officials shifted in 2014 from a program that required residents to petition for road repairs, to one in which the city determines projects based on a pavement rating system. Under its charter, the city is limited to paying no more than 20 percent of construction costs, with residents assessed 80 percent.The ballot proposal would eliminate the 20 percent cap, and tax dollars raised would pay for road repairs as well as special assessment refunds and paying off debt already incurred for road repairs.The full agenda for tonight’s 6 p.m. study session and 7:30 p.m. meeting is posted at read more

Honda CB-F Concept – the most beautiful modern classic yet?

first_imgOne of the best ways to design a big bike is arguably by combining modern tech with some cool 80s vibe. Honda seems to a master at this and their latest Honda CB-F Concept is arguably one of the best looking modern classic concepts we’ve seen, and we definitely want it to go into production (and soon!).Based on the iconic Honda CB900F, the Honda CB-F Concept works its magic around the CB1000R Neo Sports Café model. From what we understand, the 998cc inline-four engine is relatively the same with 141hp (delicious) but with different cosmetic touches to carry more of that classic vibes around the bike.Honda is able to do so by including a single-side stainless steel exhaust that looks quite similar to the Kawasaki Z900RS, another great example of a modern classic Japanese muscle bike. To ensure that it really pays homage to the CB900F, the Honda CB-F Concept is also fitted with black footrest hangers, handcrafted fuel tank, new subframe and side panels, minus the radiator shrouds.The CB-F Concept also comes with a one-piece seat finished in two tones and arguably its most eye-catching feature of all, that front LED headlight. That halo-styled front unit brings the whole look together and fits perfectly well with its clean white/silver finish.To know more about this beautiful machine, you can check out the official video presentation by Honda when you CLICK HERE (skip to 5:10). Will it go into production? We sure hope so!2020 Honda CBR250RR to get power upgrade + quickshifter–Ads–last_img read more

Situasi Tak Kunjung Kondusif, Cathay Pacific Tangguhkan Penjualan Tiket di Hong…,Beli Laptop Lenovo Bisa Dapat Tiket AirAsia Gratis? Inilah Syaratnya!

first_imgAwak Kabin Cathay Pacific. Sumber: South China Morning Post Situasi di Hong Kong pasca kerusuhan yang terjadi akibat sengkarut RUU Ekstradisi ternyata belum juga mereda – malah makin memanas. Setelah sebelumnya Hong Kong Intenational Airport (HKIA) sempat diblokir oleh para demonstran, kini kabar terbaru menyebutkan bahwa para awak kabin dari flag carrier Hong Kong, Cathay Pacific terpaksa harus lebih waspada ketika masuk ke teritorial Cina daratan. Pasalnya, otoritas terkait Cina daratan telah memberlakukan aturan untuk melakukan penggeledahan terhadap awak kabin ini, barang kali ada dari mereka yang merupakan salah satu demonstran yang hendak menyusup ke Cina.Baca Juga: Dampak Kerusuhan RUU Ekstradisi, Bandara Hong Kong Batalkan Lebih dari 200 Penerbangan“Kami panik (ketika hendak digeledah),” ujar salah satu awak kabin dari Cathay Dragon – anak perusahaan dari Cathay Pacific, dikutip dari laman (22/8). Saking enggan ponselnya turut digeledah oleh otoritas berwenang Cina daratan, tidak sedikit awak kabin dari maskapai ini yang menyimpan ponsel mereka di sales cart hingga di sela-sela botol whiskey, agar supaya data privasi mereka tidak turut dicampuri dan digeledah oleh otoritas berwenang. Tidak hanya menggeledah rekam jejak digital awak kabin saja, pemeriksaan secara menyeluruh terhadap barang bawaan juga menjadi satu momok yang menyeramkan bagi mereka.“Saya pikir ada banyak perusahaan yang ketakutan sehingga mereka merasa sulit untuk menahan tekanan semacam ini jika hal yang sama terjadi pada mereka,” tambahnya awak kabin yang meminta untuk di-anonim-kan ini.Kegelisahan yang dialami oleh flag carrier ini memaksa pihak maskapai untuk menangguhkan penjualan tiket penerbangan dari HKIA untuk waktu yang belum bisa diprediksi hingga kapan. Mengutip dari laman sumber berbeda, penangguhan itu disebabkan oleh pengetatan keamanan di HKIA menyusul situasi keamanan di kota tersebut yang memburuk dengan berbagai aksi unjuk rasa dalam beberapa waktu terakhir.“Semua penumpang harus mengonfirmasi tiketnya dan menyiapkan dokumen perjalanan guna pemeriksaan setibanya di bandara,” tulis pihak maskapai dalam sebuah pernyataan.Baca Juga: Mayoritas Pilot dan Awak Kabin Dukung Aksi Protes, Cathay Pacific Tujuan Cina Daratan Terancam LumpuhSebelumnya, pihak maskapai juga telah menangguhkan sejumlah awak kabin dan pilot yang kedapatan mendukung aksi demonstrasi ini. Diperkirakan, ada lebih dari 2.300 karyawan Cathay Pacific telah bergabung dalam aksi protes, diantaranya 1.200 orang merupakan pilot dan awak kabin.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedMayoritas Pilot dan Awak Kabin Dukung Aksi Protes, Cathay Pacific Tujuan Cina Daratan Terancam Lumpuh12/08/2019In “Bandara”Diterjang Badai “RUU Ekstradisi,” Sampai Kapan Cathay Pacific dapat Bertahan?27/08/2019In “Bandara”Dampak Kerusuhan RUU Ekstradisi, Bandara Hong Kong Batalkan Lebih dari 200 Penerbangan06/08/2019In “Bandara”last_img read more

Kurihara aiming high after impressing at Ravens minicamp

first_img KEYWORDS Kurihara said he received notification for the camp “three or four days before,” and wasn’t sure how well he could do against those possible future NFLers.But the 25-year-old, who plays for the IBM Big Blue in Japan’s X League, was able to show off what he was capable of and perhaps altered the coaches’ perception of him.“I won all the one-on-ones and had two touchdowns on the first day,” Kurihara said after a recent spring tournament game at Kawasaki Stadium. “That, I think, caught the coaches’ eyes.”But Kurihara, whose personal sponsor helped bring about the opportunity (it sent his resume and highlight DVDs to the headquarters of Under Armour, a sporting goods company based in Baltimore, who then forwarded them to the Ravens), didn’t necessarily try to beat the other guys physically.He instead tried to impress with his football IQ, and despite the linguistic disadvantage, he was also thick-skinned in voluntarily asking the coaches for more opportunities to exhibit his game.Those tactics appeared to work. Because of his enterprising attitude, the Ravens executives did give Kurihara chances, and he took advantage.“What I did was, I tried to memorize all the detailed parts of the assignments, and I ended up being able to almost perfectly play to the assignments,” he said. “And (the coaches) were like, ‘This guy doesn’t speak English very well, but does understand our assignments.’ “Kurihara wasn’t certain how positive an evaluation he drew from the American Football Conference club, which won the Super Bowl in New Orleans back in February, during the short three days. But he thinks he at least put himself into consideration on whether the Ravens might call him back for this summer’s preseason training camp.The Tokyo native seemingly made a good impression on the Ravens. Their wide receivers coach, Jim Hostler, said Kurihara did a great job and impressed him with his football intelligence.“He picked things up very quickly here and made very few mistakes,” Hostler, a former San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator, told The Japan Times via email. “He was a good route runner and competed very well against guys that have been playing football for a very long time in this country.“The best thing I can say is that he really looked like he belonged and fit with the other guys here.”Kurihara said he originally thought he might be invited to the preseason training camp during the summer. But at the end of the day, it could be advantageous for him to get his first grasp of what the Ravens do at the minicamp, because, if he is called up once again in July, he will enter the training camp with its basic offensive concepts and plays already in his head.Meanwhile, transferring to a new club in Japan, the Big Blue, could be a big plus for him in terms of making the NFL. The club has four American players, including former UCLA quarterback Kevin Craft, and English is its regular language on the gridiron.A former Hosei University product, Kurihara said that Craft throws as good as any quarterbacks at the minicamp. Craft reckons that his teammate has a good chance of making the NFL, if not the 53-man roster.“(Kurihara) could make a team, especially because he has ability to turn, kick and stuff,” Craft said. “If it’s not an active squad, I don’t see why they wouldn’t want him on a practice squad, because you’ve got a guy that not only can give you a look for you. He’s learning their offense.”And while Kurihara humbly says he’s just hoping to get another shot in July, Craft confidently thinks Baltimore will bring him back to Maryland in the summer.“I don’t see why they wouldn’t call him back,” Craft said. “He probably goes back to the next camp, because, for them, it’s not a big deal. For them to fly him out there, take care of him or whatever.“They need bodies. You can’t have 53 bodies for the whole year and get the look you want. They need bodies and the more reps he gets, the more he gets in front of their eyes, he might go in.”Of course, it’s still a long shot for Kurihara to make the NFL in September. But he insists nothing is going to open his path unless he has the courage to aim high.“Anyone who’s got the capability, he should try (to go to the NFL),” Kurihara emphasized.In the past, wide receiver Noriaki Kinoshita arguably had the best shot at the NFL for a Japanese player. Kinoshita, who now plays for X League’s Obic Seagulls, was called up by the Atlanta Falcons for their training camp in 2007 and 2008. He was with the club throughout the 2008 season as its international practice squad player.Since Kinoshita, although some Japanese players have taken combines, nobody has had a chance to be called up for an NFL training camp until Kurihara this time.
