Wheelabrator sold to private equity firm for $1.9 billion - NewsTimes Poaching of rhinos for their horn has reached catastrophic levels. According to the Oxpeckers Center for Investigative Environmental Journalism , 1,004 rhinos were killed in South Africa last year. So far this year the number has climbed to 618, with the toll in Kruger at 400. Moving rhinos, which can weigh more than three tons, from one country to another is a costly, logistically challenging endeavor. But the Jouberts say that relocating even only a hundred of South Africa's rhinos is an urgent and necessary strategy to sustain a species they believe will be lost within five to ten years if the illegal killing continues at the present rate. You've filmed rhino relocations [see a clip of the Jouberts' film Rhino Rescue] in the past, but this is the first time you've been at the helm of a project of this nature. Why did you decide to take this on? When you mention rhinos in conservation circles, there's always the same response: People just hang their head and say, What a disaster! The poaching levels are so highlast year South Africa lost 1,004 rhinos. Q&A: Can Airlifting Rhinos Out of South Africa Save the Species? In mid-June, however, the automaker was headed for a year-over-year monthly sales decline, according to data compiled by automotive research firms. Then, on June 20, GM asked dealers to buy more cars, and it threw in another $1,000 in discounts per vehicle, five dealership representatives told The Associated Press. The company finished the month with a 1 percent gain. The dealers said they were asked to buy the cars for a rental program, one that provides loaner cars for people whose vehicles are being serviced. When they buy the cars for the program, GM counts them as a retail sale. Its a longstanding practice used by nearly all automakers to boost sales results. At GM, though, the incentive was unusually generous and came as GM executives try to steer the company through the worst safety crisis in its history, including the recall of 2.6 million small cars with defective ignition switches tied to at least 13 deaths. The company has allayed investor fears by saying that recalls have actually helped sales by bringing in customers who see vastly improved new models. Clearly the timing seems webpage a little suspicious, said Jesse Toprak, senior analyst for the Cars.com website who predicted on June 22 that GM sales would be down 7 percent for the month, compared with a 2 percent decline for the rest of the industry. Retail numbers at that point did not show any kind of strength. The industry eked out a 1.2 percent gain for the month. GM didnt need the added incentives in July.

Sale and company permit the play's humor to surface and murderous schemes to bite; for the supernatural to seem ordinary and the ordinary to heighten sensibility; for love to find its way into the fabric of our soul. Whats at stake here? Freedom? Justice? Is what we see reality? Or is our reality based upon what we see? Is our vision myopic? Rob Koharchiks set design opens us to layers of possibilities.
