The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell to 6.3 percent while the comparable national rate remained at 3.7 percent.

Job growth was widespread in Alaska’s private sector. Construction added the largest number of jobs over the year by 600, followed by oil and gas by 500.center_img Local government employment was flat, according to a release from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Ferrari teases hybrid supercar ahead of imminent debut

first_img More about 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast 0 67 Photos Ferrari F8 Tributo is a 710-hp replacement for the 488 Exotic Cars Hybrids Ferrari said it would introduce the world to its new hybrid supercar at the end of May. Considering we’re just a couple days away from June, that means we should see it very soon. But first, Ferrari has a teaser.Ferrari on Tuesday posted a teaser for its upcoming hybrid supercar on its Facebook page. The teaser doesn’t give a whole lot away, showing a quick shot of the front clip early on, followed by a close-up on the headlight toward the end. That’s about it. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait another day or so for Ferrari to give us more information about its second debut of 2019.The Italian automaker has done a great job keeping information about its new car secret. All we know is that it’s a hybrid, and reports have said the electrified side of the powertrain will mate to a V8. Power output is still a mystery. This is just the beginning for Ferrari’s electrification efforts. CEO Louis Camilleri has said in the past that 60% of Ferrari’s lineup will offer a hybrid variant by 2022. There are still three debuts planned for the remainder of 2019. Two will likely happen in September, at or adjacent to the Frankfurt Motor Show, while the final vehicle will be closer to the end of the year. It’s unclear if any of them are hybrids, but given Ferrari’s goals, it would make sense for at least one of ’em to be. 2020 Audi R8 first drive: Improving an already fantastic supercar 3:19 Ferrari The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the last of the nonhybrid V8s 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class first drive: If it ain’t broke… More From Roadshow Preview • 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast: Super in more ways than one Now playing: Watch this: Post a comment Tags Share your voice 2020 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 first drive: A standout track star Ferrarilast_img read more

Nepal bus accident kills 19

first_imgMap of NepalAt least 19 people were killed when an overcrowded bus swerved off the road and plunged into a river in central Nepal on Saturday, police said.The bus skidded off the road in Dhading district, approximately 80 kilometres (50 miles) west of the capital Kathmandu, early morning and fell into the Trishuli River.“We have recovered the bodies of 19 people from the place of the accident and number of missing is still unknown as the bus had no record of the total number of passengers,” district police chief Dhruba Raj Raut told AFP.Local TV footage showed rescue workers pulling the dead and injured from the water, while soldiers in boats scoured the river for the missing.At least 16 injured passengers were recovered from the river and taken to local hospitals, police said.Authorities are yet to confirm the cause of the crash, but local media quoted passengers saying that the driver may have been drunk.Police Inspector Barun Bahadur Singh, at the scene of the accident, told AFP that the driver was injured in the accident and is thought to have fled after freeing himself from the wreckage of the bus.“The driver of the bus is suspected of running away right after the incident and we have expedited the search operation in the nearby areas,” he said.Deadly crashes are relatively common in the impoverished Himalayan nation because of poor roads, badly maintained vehicles and reckless driving.last_img read more
