Motorola cuts 4,000 more jobs as demand weakens


MOTOROLA Inc, the second largest mobile phone maker in the US, is cutting 4,000 jobs, so that it can save costs to weather through tough economic times.

The announcement was barely four months since it sent 3,000 employees packing. The current initiative, plus the 3,000 job cut announcement in October, will help the company to save US$1.5 billion this year.


The company lost its pole position in the US to Korean rival Samsung last year, as it could not launch devices that attract phone users.

It aimed to regain lost ground in the segment though, by introducing a touch-screen phone to counter the ever popular iPhone, as well as to launch a "recycled" phone, to attract environmental-concious consumers.

When I reflect on my teenage years, most of the stories I remembered reading and loving were supernatural, sci-fi, and were very white. This wasn’t to say that I didn’t read any Morrison and the like, but my heart lead me to the young adult book store without fail. However as I read deeper into the genre, I noticed that in the young adult section most of the novels that were authored by black writers were stories of tragedy. These tragedies were not those of Nicholas Sparks-esque teenage folly. They were neither romance gone awry nor adventure epics with the world hanging in the balance. These were grim narratives determined and informed by, in my perception, the main character’s race. It was a reality that my teenaged self was unwillingly to face.Cape Verde

After yet another amazing breakfast by our beloved chef Harrison, students separated into village groups to start their designs. Using the information gathered in the villages along with various fluid mechanics equations, GPS maps, and other design tools preliminary designs started to come to life.
