first_imgRooney breaks scoring record LONDON (AP): Wayne Rooney has broken Bobby Charlton’s 45-year-old scoring record for England by netting his 50th career international goal. Rooney converted a penalty in the 84th minute for a 2-0 lead against Switzerland yesterday in a European Championship qualifier at Wembley Stadium. The Manchester United forward blasted his spot kick high into the net before pumping both fists and running over to celebrate in front of the England supporters. Charlton scored 49 goals in 106 England games. Rooney needed 107 games to get to 50. He had equalled the record by netting a penalty in a 6-0 win against San Marino on Saturday. England have already qualified for Euro 2016. England win MANCHESTER, England (AP): England kept alive the one-day series against Australia by winning the third match by 93 runs at Old Trafford yesterday, thanks to a first ODI century by James Taylor and a stunning display of fielding in the reply. Taylor held up one end in hitting 101 off 114 balls to allow Jason Roy (63) and Eoin Morgan (62) to make rapid contributions, as England posted 300-8, their highest total so far this series. Recalled opener Aaron Finch top-scored with 53 as the Australians were dismissed for 207, ending their seven-match winning run against England in ODIs. Moeen Ali and Liam Plunkett took three wickets each in a tight overall bowling performance. Australia lead the five-match series 2-1 as they look to end the tour on a high, having lost the Ashes series 3-2 and also the one-off Twenty20 international. The fourth ODI is at Headingly on Friday.last_img read more

She gets to check out cars – for pay

She gets to check out cars – for pay

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonThe 20-year-old previously worked in clothing retail for two years. Ace is currently studying kinesiology at California State University, Long Beach, and plans to become a high school P.E. teacher. What does your job entail? We receive the vehicles from the transporters and make sure there’s no damage. We check out the VIN numbers and stock numbers and make sure we got the right cars. We enter the vehicles into our computer system. We clean them up before they go on our front lot. And if customers are getting something done in our service department, we shuttle them to their home. What’s the biggest part of your day? The inventory associate is one of the least-known jobs in the automotive retail industry. These professionals spend more time interacting with the vehicles on the lot than with the customers. After two weeks as a saleswoman at the CarMax in Torrance, Brittany Ace went from selling cars to keeping track of them. She became an inventory associate. The position had more flexible hours to allow her to go to school. The Inglewood resident has been in her new position for about a month. Receiving cars from the transporters. CarMax has a 125-point inspection, and we do the last part, making sure there’s no cosmetic problems with the vehicle or anything else that may need attention. What’s the biggest problem you’ve found while inspecting a vehicle? Nothing much because of all the inspections done before. Maybe a scratch on the back of the trunk or a stain. How long does it take to process a vehicle? To process one car from the truck to the front lot, I would say, maybe 45 minutes to an hour. Are some vehicles harder to process than others? Some of the SUVs, when you have to check the top of the cars. But with repetition, you get the eye for it. What’s the nicest car you’ve processed? I’d have to say a Porsche 911. That’s another bonus, driving nice cars I otherwise wouldn’t be driving. Have you ever had an accident while processing a vehicle? I have not. I’m so proud of that. I haven’t had an accident in sales or inventory so far. I hope I don’t jinx myself. What’s a big challenge you face on the job? Since I am new, just trying to navigate the computer programs. But it’s coming to me pretty quickly. What’s the best part of your job? The freedom. I get instructions for the day, and it’s up to me to get things done. And I love my co-workers. What’s the worst part? Being outside in the cold. We have scarves and gloves in the morning because we can be out here at 7 in the morning. They have no heat in the final quality-inspection zone. Do you have much contact with customers? Not as much as when I was in sales. But I don’t mind that. Sometimes I like to come to work, get what I need to get done and not have to worry about that. Any funny job-related stories you want to share? We have a lot of fun out there when we clean up the cars. We have the radio on and there’s some singing. What do you sing? Whatever’s playing. Since it’s Christmas, a lot of carols have been playing. So “Jingle Bells” and “Santa’s Coming to Town.” When the music is going, do you ever start dancing? Yes. It comes naturally. What kind of dancing? Just the vibe. We’re not, like, flat-out dancing eight-counts. What kind of music do you like outside of work? I listen to everything. You could catch me listening to rock and rap, R&B, the oldies. Have you ever thought of trying out for “American Idol”? I did think about it two years ago. But it was in San Diego and that was too far away. So I’ll keep it to the shower. A shower singer. That’s what I am. muhammed.el-hasan@dailybreeze.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
