Stellantis’ “Leapmotor International” joint venture to launch soon

[ad_1] Approximately six months after taking a $1.6 billion stake in Chinese OEM Leapmotor, Stellantis is reportedly poised to officially launch a new joint venture between the two automakers to sell the former’s China-built EVs globally. The joint venture is expected to be announced very soon as Leapmotor International. The ongoing saga appears closer than ever to a solidified joint venture between China’s Leapmotor and Europe’s Stellantis ($STLA). The journey began last fall when Stellantis announced it had acquired an approximately 20% stake in Leapmotor in exchange for an investment of 1.5 billion euros ($1.6 billion). The investment also plans for a new joint venture with Leapmotor in which Stellantis owns a 51% stake. At the time, we reported the plan was to call the new joint venture with Leapmotor “Stellantis International,” in which the latter would help sell the former’s EVs in new markets outside of China, including Europe and possibly the US. By March 2024, the new partners announced their joint venture had been approved after Stellantis gained regulatory approval in China to …

I’m a fitness and nutrition expert – here’s how to help joint pain during menopause

[ad_1] Flexibility and joint pain are common issues during menopause. And according to fitness and nutrition expert Zana Morris, the decline in oestrogen and testosterone levels, coupled with age-related sarcopenia (which is muscle loss to you and me) and increased stress are to blame. “These factors will all lead to weaker muscles, poor flexibility and of course aching joints,” Zana explains to HELLO! The good news is, there are simple things we can do everyday to help minimise achy joints and to keep our bodies moving more flexibly during menopause. However Zana, who is also the founder of Strong Nutrients says that we need to make simple stretching and certain exercises part of our routine throughout the day, rather than expect that one stretch in the morning to make all the aches and pains go away!  “Given that we have approximately 650 skeletal muscles in our bodies, no single exercise or stretch will help,” Zana explains. “Stretching can help reduce the muscle tightness that can pull at joints, and strength training is essential to strengthen the …

Philippines, US launch annual joint military drills

Philippines, US launch annual joint military drills

[ad_1] Manila, Philippines —  Thousands of Filipino and American troops will kick off joint military exercises in the Philippines on Monday, as Beijing’s growing assertiveness in the region raises fears of a conflict. The annual drills — dubbed Balikatan, or “shoulder to shoulder” in Tagalog — will be concentrated in the northern and western parts of the archipelago nation, near the potential flashpoints of the South China Sea and Taiwan. China claims almost the entire waterway, a key route for international trade, and also considers self-ruled Taiwan to be part of its territory. In response to China’s growing influence, the United States has been bolstering alliances with countries in the Asia-Pacific region, including the Philippines. Washington and Manila are treaty allies and have deepened their defense cooperation since Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos took office in 2022. While the Philippines is poorly armed, its proximity to the South China Sea and Taiwan would make it a key partner for the United States in the event of a conflict with China. “The purpose of armed forces, why …
