  • Sadness down under as final Holden marks end of Australian car industry

    Golocal247.com news

    Shortly after midday today, a red Commodore marked the end of 69 years of Holden manufacture in Australia – and to countless enthusiasts, it was an occasion as sad as it was once virtually unthinkable. There is a select group of cars that transformed their respective nations' concept of mass motoring and the original 48-215 ‘FX’ certainly ranks alongside the Mini, 2CV or Fiat 600 in this regard. This was mass-market transport made in Australia, for Australia. Holden’s first involvement with the motor industry was as a coachbuilder and in 1924, it became the exclusive supplier of car bodies to General Motors. Seven years later it became a part of the GM empire and as early as 1936 the division’s MD Laurence Hartnett was planning a ‘wholly Australian car’ in place of the locally-built Chevrolets, Pontiacs and Vauxhalls. Towards the end of the Second World War, the government was keen to promote a locally-designed car and General Motors already had the basis of a suitable model in the form of a Chevrolet project that had been rejected as too compact for US motorists. A small group of prototypes were extensively tested and on the 29th November 1948 Ben Chifley, the then Prime Minister, unveiled the new 48-215.  It was not a vehicle that represented a major technological advance and its list of standard fittings was low even by the standards of the day; no sidelights, carpet, door armrest, heater or even direction indicators of any form, one sun visor and a solitary tail lamp. Nor was the new Holden especially cheap as a price of £A675 represented nearly two years wages for the average worker but this did not deter 18,000 people from paying a deposit without having seen a 48-215 in the metal. Such was the demand that the company was soon obliged to issue a booklet entitled Holden Owners Give Reasons Why Holden is Worth Waiting For. Motoring picture of the day And perhaps the major reason for the impact of the FX on the post-war motorist was that it offered the ideal combination of advantages in a car that was launched at precisely the right moment. The brochures promised an engine designed for local conditions the 2.1-litre six-cylinder unit was capable of "80 miles per hour and 30 miles per gallon" with a smoothness not found in such rivals as the four-cylinder Austin A70 Hampshire. It was also flexible enough to propel the Holden from a crawl to cruising speed with the steering column-mounted lever in third gear. Holden intended that the FX would appeal to rural motorists and urban drivers alike, with suspension that could cope with the country’s many unsurfaced roads, and for the Sydney or Melbourne suburbanite, the ‘Aerobilt’ body was smart and offered room for a quintet of adult passengers: ‘you don’t climb in or scrabble out – you step in with ease and dignity. A great boon for elderly people and women."  There was also a sense of robustness that was lacking in some of its competitors. Clive James once observed of the Standard Vanguard that it was a toss-up whether the ‘chromium trim would rust through before the exhaust pipe fell onto the road’.  Above all, this was ‘Australia’s Own Car’, which automatically set it apart from any other car that bore an American or British marque and ten years later, the Lion and Stone badge adorned 40 percent of new models. The name of Holden had now entered the lexicon of a nation’s popular culture and the idea that in 2013 the company’s chief would state that ‘building cars in this country is just not sustainable’ would have been inconceivable. The moment when that last Commodore leaves the production line is not only the closing of a chapter in GM’s history – in many respects it is the end of a country’s automotive dream, one that began nearly 70 years ago.

  • Barack Obama's letters to a college girlfriend are finally seeing the light of day

    Golocal247.com news

    The Barack Obama that we know is a smooth politician and world leader—but in case you had any doubt, we now have proof that the former president was just as poetic in college as he is today.  Letters Obama wrote to his college girlfriend, Alexandra McNear, have been made public to researchers at Emory University's Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library in Atlanta on Thursday. SEE ALSO: Barack Obama crashes Michelle's talk with super sweet tribute for their 25th anniversary There are nine letters from Obama in total, ranging in dates from 1982 to early 1984 and spanning his time at Columbia University in New York City and Indonesia. The university has had these letters since 2014, but are now allowing researchers to paint a clearer picture of the man before the White House.  In the letters, Obama poetically discusses everything from community organizing to wrestling with his identity and his feelings—though they aren't necessarily love letters. According to a Emory professor, they cover the end of the pair's relationship.  “My ideas aren’t as crystallized as they were while in school, but they have an immediacy and weight that may be more useful if and when I’m less observer and more participant,” Obama wrote in one letter, dated in 1984, according to AP.  His thoughts on school are relatable. "School. What intelligent observations can I glean from the first two weeks? I pass through the labyrinths, corridors, see familiar faces, select and discard classes and activities, fluctuate between unquenchable curiosity and heavy, inert boredom," he wrote.  In another letter, Obama included a ripped out copy of a book review from the New York Times on Rachel M. Brownstein’s “Becoming a Heroine.” You can read more excerpts from the letters here, but you're going to have to make an appointment to see them yourself.  WATCH: Obama's official White House photographer is Insta-trolling Trump

  • Lara Trump becomes face of Donald Trump's 2020 re-election campaign

    Golocal247.com news

    An image of an American flag waves and the graphic promises "Real News Update." The re-election campaign of President Donald Trump, already sprung to life two-and-a-half years before his name is back on the ballot, is pushing its own online news source to counteract what it believes is an oppositional media. And its face is a rising star in the president's orbit: his daughter-in-law Lara Trump. Lara Trump, married to Eric Trump, was viewed by many on the last campaign as a secret weapon after helping deliver her home state of North Carolina for her father-in-law, and she has become a central figure in a nascent re-election bid that already is fundraising, staging rallies and helping the president challenge the credibility of the news media. "People who voted for Donald Trump want to hear about the things he's doing for the country and they deserve to hear the things he is doing for the country," she said in a recent interview. "Part of the reason the campaign is still here is to let them know what is going on so they don't have to just rely on the mainstream media." The videos, available on the campaign's Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts, take on the feel of a newscast while delivering the campaign's message. In the most recent, Lara Trump delivered a rosy update on the administration's response to the California wildfires before recapping the president's speech to truckers in Pennsylvania and urging viewers to contact their representatives to make "the middle-class miracle a reality this year." She then saluted the administration's efforts to repeal the Clean Power Plan, calling the environmental protection order "a federal overreach." She signed off by saying "and that is the real news." In less than 24 hours, the video had been viewed more than 1.5 million times on Facebook. "Those videos are doing really well and are really important for us," said Brad Parscale, the campaign's digital media guru and a key player in Trump's win. "Lara has a great personality and a great following, and continuing to get the president's message out helps drive donations to our war chest." The videos are shot in a ragtag studio at campaign headquarters on the 15th floor of Trump Tower. They've gotten enough attention to be spoofed on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon." And while other Trump allies have taken turns in front of the camera, particularly after Lara gave birth to the couple's first child last month, she is the central figure of an effort meant to complement the at-times haphazard communications strategy emanating from the White House. Eric Trump, left, fixes his tie as Lara Trump, right, smiles while they tape a segment of "Justice With Judge Jeanine," at the Fox Studios in New York, Friday, October 13, 2017 Credit: AP "There is a space out there for this," she said. "There is no one on television talking about the accomplishments of the president because there is always other news the media would prefer to focus on." It's not unusual for presidents to try to go around the traditional media, but Trump is being "strikingly overt," said Tobe Berkovitz, a communications professor at Boston University. "Trump, being the modern, mobile president with a media background, sets up his own channel," said Berkovitz. "It makes a lot of sense. He complains the media misinterprets, misquotes. But if you have your own channel, you have total control, and you get to claim to be the authentic news source." #RealNews ���� tune in: https://t.co/fmuoNGEBfO#MAGA— Lara Trump (@LaraLeaTrump) October 15, 2017 Lara Trump, who married Eric in 2014, was working as a producer at "Inside Edition" when her father-in-law announced his candidacy for president. After helping along the campaign's edges, she dove headlong into the effort in August 2016 when she accompanied the Republican nominee to a rally in her home state. Trump was frustrated about something that happened in the state, so "he asked my opinion and I told him what I thought," she recalls. "And, in only the way that Donald Trump can, he said, 'You know what, I want to put you in charge of winning North Carolina.'" Deeming the opportunity "amazing and frightening at the same time," Lara Trump split her time between the Tarheel State and other battlegrounds, organised a "Women for Trump" bus tour and pushed back against the perception that her father-in-law was going to fare poorly with women voters, particularly after the release of the 2005 "Access Hollywood" video. "I don't think I've ever been as relieved as the second when they called North Carolina for Donald Trump," she said. "In the moment after they called the state, my father-in-law turned to me and said, 'We won because of you.'" She never returned to "Inside Edition," instead going to work for Parscale's company on the burgeoning re-election bid. The campaign, though still small, is aggressively fundraising and selling merchandise, and has staged a half dozen rallies, with another tentatively slated for Michigan in the coming weeks. As activity increases in the months ahead, Lara Trump expects to play an even larger role than she did a year ago. "Lara truly believes in my father's message and is passionate about fighting for the American people," says Eric Trump. "She is authentic and is truly one of the hardest working people I know."
