OTTAWA — The union representing Canada Post employees is taking the Trudeau government to court over the legislation that ended rotating strikes by its members.The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says it will file a constitutional challenge today in Ontario Superior Court, arguing Bill C-89 violated the rights of workers to collective bargaining.The move comes one day after the government appointed a mediator to bring the labour dispute to an end.CUPW national president Mike Palecek says the government can’t legislate labour peace.The union’s lawyer says the back-to-work legislation was passed after Canada Post created a “false emergency” over a backlog of parcels at the Crown corporation’s sorting plants.Canada Post said yesterday that, while letter mail is moving well, parcel deliveries are sporadic and delivery delays are expected through January as a result of the rotating walkouts that ended Nov. 27.The Canadian Press
Remember the “Honey Badger,” the LSU safety who seemingly ruined his NFL career because he could not stop smoking marijuana? Remember how he was ridiculed when he was kicked off the No. 1 team in the country, how he seemed to be the sad example of talent wasted?Well, look at him now. Tyrann Mathieu is a star safety for the Arizona Cardinals, one of the league’s top defenders. He missed the Atlanta Falcons game last week because of injury, one reason the Falcons were able to pass the ball so well.Mathieu could miss a few more games with the broken thumb. But he’s already established himself in his second season as a force on the field and reliable off of it.He goes by his name now, not the moniker because, while catchy, it symbolizes a time in his life that he regrets.It took losing his college career and the threat of a pro career for Mathieu to smarten up.“I didn’t have everything together back in college,” he said to SI.com when he arrived in Arizona. “I had everything together as far as football, but when it came to my social life, my personal life, I didn’t have everything intact. I didn’t have my emotions intact. Spiritually, I wasn’t intact.“Once you take football away, you are able to work on the person. These last six months, that is all I had was Tyrann the person. I attacked the person, I attacked my issues. . . Back when I was the Honey Badger, I didn’t have everything intact. Going forward, I am going to focus on being Tyrann Mathieu and that is the person I want to control right now.”Coach Bruce Arians said: “He’s a good kid. . . he knew his mistakes, owned up to his mistakes and he was just looking for an opportunity. The football part spoke for itself, and he’s been nothing but a dream to coach ever since.”Mathieu’s case of taking advantage of his opportunity comes at a time when Ray Rice is seeking a second chance, too. The cases are different but the same in this way: They are talented athletes who made mistakes. Mathieu’s errors hurt him; Rice’s actions hurt his wife, making some feel he should not set foot on an NFL field again as a player.Mathieu shows that a second chance can be a real life-saver. . . if handled properly. He went into rehab, moved by himself to Florida where he cleared his head and lungs and committed himself to a better life.That better life meant no drugs, understanding that if he stayed true to that personal mandate, the NFL was his to be had. To this point, Mathieu has been on point. He’s the playmaker scouts projected him to be.Rice is a proven football commodity who surely has been scared straight. He’s paid a penance. And for those looking for examples of second-chancers who kept it together, look to Mathieu. That’s something few would have even considered less than two years ago.

Globalfoundries to fast-forward into 14nm (2012, September 24) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-uh-oh-intel-globalfoundries-fast-forward-14nm.html © 2012 Phys.org This is a nonplanar architecture optimized for low-power, mobile system-on-chip (SoC) designs. These chips will deliver a 40 percent to 60 percent improvement in battery life compared to two-dimension planar transistors at the 20nm node. Globalfoundries will go “3-D” in the use of three-dimensional “FinFET” transistors. The big deal about “FinFET” rests in its promoted superior low-power attributes. The FinFET architecture takes a traditional two-dimensional transistor design and turns the conductive channel on its side, resulting in a three-dimensional fin structure, surrounded by a gate controlling the flow of current. The 3-D transistor design operates at a lower voltage with minimal current leakage. This leads to a longer battery life for mobile applications and less power consumption for plugged-in applications. The power-consumption advantage could have important implications for networking chips in data centers.Intel’s challenge is not only in the rival company’s technology but also in 14nm timelines. Globalfoundries is speeding up its timeline for its 14nm process. Chip watchers note that in so doing it is playing leapfrog over other companies. The company will be ready to roll with a 14-nanometer process that will include its three-dimensional transistor architecture. This is said to be similar to Intel’s Tri-Gate method. Enthusiasts say that the 14nm-XM design is expected to carry performance and power benefits of three-dimensional FinFET transistors, possibly influencing a newer generation of mobile devices.With the Globalfoundries plan, chip designers will be able to start producing sample 14 nanometer chips in 2013. In 2014 or early 2015, the 14 nm chips will be part of the consumer marketplace. Technology development of the 14nm-XM has begun in Globalfoundries’ Fab 8, a fabrication plant in Saratoga County, New York. The company is making early process design kits (PDKs) which are available now. Customer tape-outs—the final result of the design—are expected in 2013. Globalfoundries was formerly a manufacturing arm of AMD. Headquartered in Milpitas, California, Globalfoundries now counts itself as one of the largest foundries in the world by revenue. Imec releases industry’s first 14nm process development kit More information: www.globalfoundries.com/technology/14XM.aspx Explore further (Phys.org)—Globalfoundries has made an announcement that amounts to a direct challenge to Intel, in the latter’s race to get further ahead in the mobile device ecosystem. Both Globalfoundries and Intel will be racing for a more dominant position with higher performing and power efficient systems for smartphones and other devices. In short, Globalfoundries announced Thursday that it is accelerating its technology roadmap. Its newest design achievement for the mobile market is in the form of 14nm chip technology. The company provided some details about its 14nm-XM (“extreme mobility”) process. This document is subject to copyright.
