The opening of the plant expanded the company’s global footprint by solidifying its commitment to innovation, technology and growth in North America. The Tennessee plant operates at full-capacity and has helped grow Clarksville’s economy. In addition, the plant has allowed Hankook to incorporate sustainable design and construction into its tire manufacturing by leveraging top-tier technology through its highly automated manufacturing process. Suh will return to Hankook’s global headquarters in Seoul, Korea to take over a new position this month. Lee will split his time between Hankook’s America headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee, and global headquarters in Seoul, Korea. He will specifically focus on these three key themes at the American headquarters: competitiveness, innovation and results. Strategic initiatives will be put in place to enhance Hankook’s competitiveness in the tire industry. Additionally, Hankook will focus on and seek answers to “why” and “how” questions in order to provide innovation breakthroughs that will help garner a share of the market. And finally, the answers to these questions along with R&D will be used to help produce results. Lee begins his tenure in Nashville mid-January.last_img read more

first_imgThe Solicitors Regulation Authority has rejected calls to ban solicitors from offering cash or gift inducements to potential clients. The regulator said today there was no evidence to suggest clients are harmed by law firms offering advance payments for their cases. Claims management companies have been barred from offering inducements by Ministry of Justice rules since the end of April. The rules clamped down on companies targeting customers through advertisements offering individuals a cash incentive for signing up. Agnieszka Scott, director of policy for the SRA, said today: ‘We have often been asked to look at similar measures for solicitors, but we have not found anything to suggest that it is a significant problem or that clients’ interests are put at risk. ‘We have no evidence which suggests that inducements encourage spurious claims to be made. We want this situation to continue.’ The SRA has produced a guidance note to remind solicitors of their obligations to the code of conduct, which states that publicity should not inaccurate or misleading. The note reiterates the mandatory outcomes and indicative behaviours set out in the SRA Handbook, and was approved by the authority’s standards committee in May. A ban was first suggested by Lord Young of Graffham in his review of health and safety in 2010. Young suggested the perception of a compensation culture in Britain was fuelled by constant media advertising offering non-refundable inducements and the promise of a settlement.last_img read more

People Slammed By Massive Waves 4 Rebekah Vardy scores an impressive penalty in six-inch heels REAL vs FAKE GOLD Travel Diary // Vietnam 2017center_img Top 5 Best Budget Hotels In Dubai under AED 400 a night. By Wally Downes in Las VegasROUND 1”We are Sparta” Fury roared as he left the dressing room flanked by his security guard, brothers and corner team.Dressed like a Poundland king, complete with Burger King crown, he was carried out on a throne pushed along by beautiful women dressed as very glamorous gladiators.The song the avid mental health campaigner emerged to was Crazy by Patsy Cline, the lyrics alone were starting to worry some people.In the starkest possible contrast, Wilder made his ring walk looking like Teenage Mutant Turtles enemy Shredder had been dragged through a diamond mine and was fuming about it.Fury kept to all of his promises, he dashed across the ring and threw close to a dozen big right hands and lead left hooks.Wilder warned him off with two of his won but the Brit dominated the rounds and always made the champ box on the backfoot where he is least comfortable with.It was a dream start.ROUND 2Even Fury’s jab was spiteful, Wilder had his head jolted back by one of the stiffest he has ever thrown as soon as the second started.But the American fired off two rights that calmed the crowd that had begun singing the challenger’s name and abusing Wilder with cries of “You Big Dosser”Both men landed firm one-two straight combinations and Fury ended the stanza well on top, barrelling Wilder into the corner and wrestling him briefly.ROUND 3Fury kept it up as the third started, Wilder had almost never looked so vulnerable.A looping Firy right hook had the one-sided crowd going again, all of Fury’s doubters were eating their words.And he smashed him to the floor in round three, it was amazing.A jab and right hand to the temple dropped Wilder to the deck. His senses were scrambled and he was back on the canvas secondsRef kenny Bayless called it a slip but he was still stunned from the Fury masterclass and rocking all over the MGMROUND 4Fury started the round well with a right uppercut on the inside but Bayless split up the grappling again.A hapless Wilder was back down again in the fourth but it was called another slip, this was Bambi On Ice, a deer to the slaughter. Yes he was unbalanced as he skated aimlessly around the ring but he was also battered and bruised and in too deep. Wilder still in a fog, his skinny legs betraying him.One late right hand in the session reminded Fury of the danger but he was still so groggy from going down that it was an off-balance lunge more than a trademark punch.ROUND 5Fury roared out again in sensational style, landing a big right hand. Wilder was totally defenceless, it was almost unfair, this terrifying champion was being slaughtered.And he was dropped again with a perfect left hook to the body, the drowning champ beat the count easily but he was spent.Fury was now toying with his food, leaning all over him and pummelling him so freely. Wilder was a ghost.The Gypsy King was old-manning the beast three years his senior then Bayless warned Fury over holding and leaning over his prey.ROUND 6Another instant serving of Fury genius, Wilder back on the ropes getting slapped and mauled and manhandled but the three stone stronger.Fury had every right to chill out, to get on his bike and score points from afar, he could have coasted. Instead he was relentless, nasty, sensational.The shot that ended the round was another Fury left hook that had Wilder using the ropes to hold himself up almost tragically.ROUND 7In the break, before the seventh, you could see how horribly Wilder’s ear had swelled from a right clouting.Trainer Jay Deas was surely warning him he was close to being pulled out of his one-sided hammering.One chopping Wilder right grazed Fury’s shaved head but that scorching power had now vanished.Wilder was then pulled out, the white towel of surrender hurled in soaked in Wilder’s blood.The place erupted. It was magnificent.Wilder and all of Fury’s doubters were battered from pillar to post.Wilder’s team were left nursing a man with a string of injuries from the same man he had constantly accused of being pillow fisted.It was everything Fury had promised and so much more. Omg this is awesome 🙂 Source: Boxing – thesun.co.uklast_img read more
