  • General Motors to Build New Cadillac Car Plant in Shanghai

    US Automaker General Motors is expanding its reach in Mainland China. The company has just been given permission to build a new $1.3 billion Cadillac factory by the National Development and Reform Commission. It'll be located in Shanghai and produce 150-thousand cars a year. With GM having a plant in China, potential car buyers would no longer have to pay a 25 percent import tariff. Just over 30-thousand Cadillacs were sold last year, compared to nearly 200-thousand Mercedes, 400-thousand Audis and over 300-thousand BMWs. But there is controversy over whether the plant should be built. GM was bailed out of bankruptcy by the US government back in 2009, and with so many millions of dollars being invested in China, op-ed author Edward Niedermeyer says China is (quote) "disproportionately" ...

Todays topic is on Dragon Tree - Dracaena plants Species and Some of its common Varieties like Deacaena Marginata, Reflexa – song of india and song of Jamaica plant, and General Care and Tips on Growing Dracaena trees indoors for home Gardening. Dracaena derived from the greek word– drakaina, meaning "female dragon", is a genus of over 100 species of trees and shrubs in the family Dracaenaceae. The majority of the species are native to Africa, with a few in south Asia, northern Australia and few species in tropical Central America. Species of Dracaena have a secondary thickening meristem in their trunk, which is characteristic feature of these plants and is termed dracaenoid thickening by some authors. All Dracaena plants are very attractive plants grown at homes and offices in pots and also in ground. There are over 100 species, which are different in forms and sizes. However, only the types of dracaena which grow between 2 and 10 feet are popular with home gardeners. They include Dracaena marginata, Dracaena fragrans, Dracaena Reflexa (Song of India), Dracaena cinnabari, Dracaena sanderiana, Dracaena deremensis and Dracaena draco. Dracaena Marginata is sometimes called the Madagascar dragon-tree or red-edged flower, Ribbon Tree, Rainbow Tree and so on. The marginata is probably the most versatile of all the Dracaenas. Some confuse this houseplant with a palm tree. This plant has leaves with red to purple stripes running along the edge and they really look beautiful. This Purplish-Red striped foliage and canes (canes are their stems and branches) are special features of these plants. In my Next Dracaena Video series, please watch How to grow them from cuttings and also How I tried to revive Dracena Reflexa (the song of India) plant kept indoors. Dracaena Reflexa which is another popular ornamental plant, both in the landscape and the home. Several Varieties are seen in this group, particularly variegated ones with cream and yellow-green margins – that’s called The 'Tricolor' or three-coloured Madagascar dragon tree and Dracaena Variegata (variegated Song of India) . It performs well as a houseplant, tolerating infrequent waterings. It prefers bright, filtered light, without direct sun exposure, restricted outdoors to zones 10–11. It can be propagated via stem cuttings. This another Dracaena Reflexa type – is known as Song of Jamaica, while the previous tri-color is known as song of India. Few Important Tips on Dracaena Care (common to all species) • Light: this plant is quite tolerant to a wide range of light conditions. It grows best in bright and indirect light. Low light can be handled pretty fine as well, but the plant will grow much slower. • Temperature: it should always be kept warm, regardless of the season in your place. When the temperature falls below 65°F, the plant will not grow. Sometimes, it even dies. • Humidity: if the surrounding humidity is high, the plant grows well. The humidity can be even increased with the help of pebbles placed below the plant – or by making your own humidity tray. • Fertilizers: In summer, usually not required and at other times just use NPK crystals that’s NPK 20 20 20 fertlizer every fortnight. You can watch the NPK video by searching NPK crystals in youtube search. I have shown you how many crystals to add for different pot sizes. One more last thing is: Why Do Dracaena Leaves Die? Too commong problem - Plant’s leaves start turning brown from the tip, and then the entire leaf becomes brown and dies. Pruning dead leaves away, won’t solve the problem. Think of the reasons that led to such results. One of the commonest ones is that leaves were underwatered or overwatered. Always use well-drained soil to avoid problems in the future. Besides, it is important to make sure that the pot is well-drained too. Also do not keep in a dark place if you are keeping it indoors. I have faced this problem and in my next videos, will show you this problem and what I exactly did to solve this problem.

Visit our Store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/hummansunson HUMMER Assembly Plant - AM GENERAL Home of HMMWV, Humvee and HUMMER South Bend, Mishawaka AM General is an American heavy vehicle manufacturer based in South Bend, Indiana. It is best known for the civilian Hummer and the military Humvee, that is assembled in Mishawaka, Indiana AM General traces its roots to the Standard Wheel Company of Terre Haute, Indiana, which expanded in 1903 to include the Overland Automotive Division. In 1908, John North Willys purchased the Overland company, then based in Indianapolis, Indiana, and renamed it Willys-Overland Motors, Inc. In the 1940s, Willys-Overland developed a vehicle to U.S. Army's requirements and later mass-produced "America's first four-wheel drive one-fourth-ton tactical utility truck"—the Jeep of World War II fame. In 1953, Kaiser Motors purchased Willys-Overland, and changed the name to Kaiser-Willys Motor Company. In 1963 the company's name changed again to Kaiser-Jeep Corporation. In 1964, Kaiser-Jeep purchased the Studebaker facilities in South Bend, Indiana, and formed the Defense and Government Products Division in 1967, which after American Motors purchased Kaiser-Jeep became what is now AM General. 1975 AM General RHD postal delivery van AM General's roots (and its location in South Bend) also lie with the "General Products Division" of Studebaker, which, along with its substantial defense contracts, was acquired by Kaiser Industries in early 1964 after Studebaker closed its U.S. auto manufacturing operations. At the time, Kaiser had been awarded a US$87 million Army truck contract, and under government pressure agreed to perform the work at the South Bend plant it had recently acquired from Studebaker. Subsequently, American Motors Corporation (AMC) purchased the Jeep Corporation from Kaiser in 1970 when Kaiser itself decided to leave the auto business. In 1971, AMC made the General Products Division of Jeep (producing military trucks, as well as contract and non-commercial vehicles) a wholly owned subsidiary and renamed it AM General Corporation. AM General produced buses, large trucks, and Jeeps for industrial, military, and government use. In the late-1970s, it developed the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV, nicknamed "Humvee") for military use as a heavy-duty replacement for the jeep. The vehicle later became available in a civilian version sold under the Hummer brand name. Another familiar product from the AM General line was the Jeep DJ-5 series—a purpose built "Dispatch Jeep" 2-wheel drive (RWD) version of the Jeep CJ-5—used in huge numbers as a right-hand drive mail delivery vehicle by the United States Postal Service. Production of buses lasted only from 1974 until 1979. American Motors ended its history as an independent automaker in 1982 when controlling interest in the company was purchased by France's Renault. U.S. government regulations at that time forbade ownership of defense contractors by foreign governments, and Renault was partially owned by the French government. Therefore, in 1983, AM General was sold by AMC to the LTV Corporation and it became a wholly owned subsidiary of the LTV Aerospace and Defense Company. (As a result, AM General remained an independent company after AMC was purchased by Chrysler Corporation.) HUMMER assembly plant Humvee assembly plant HMMWV assembly plant Hummer assembly factory Renco Group bought the company in 1992. AM General, which remains an independent company and government and military contractor, sold the rights to the Hummer brand to General Motors in 1999. It continued production of the original civilian Hummer (dubbed by GM as the H1) until June 2006 when it ceased production. AM General built a separate factory to build a new Hummer H2, designed by and marketed by General Motors. The vehicle went on the market in 2002, and was produced under contract to GM until January 2009. AM General did not build the Hummer H3, and the firm is not part of General Motors Corporation. hummer h1 off road hummer h1 offroad extreme 4x4 hummer h2 off road hummer h2 offroad extreme 4x4 hummer H3 off road hummer h3 offroad extreme 4x4 hummer H3T off road hummer H3T extreme 4x4
