Published

on

2022 Honda ADV 160 Indonesia facelift announced: crossover is the way to go! Small power increase, HSTC/new instrumentation introduced. The HONDA ADV 150 inherits the rugged appearance of the X-ADV and was officially born in the Indonesian market in 2019, giving many fans of the Skoda who need to take into account the convenience of everyday life, a small exhaust volume crossover option. With the increasingly stringent emission regulations in various countries, the ADV 150 has also been slightly upgraded with the introduction of the “ADV 160” to comply with the new emission regulations and bring more equipment updates!

4-valve eSP+ engine, HSTC introduced!
The original ADV 150 was 149.3 c.c. with 14.5PS and 13.8Nm. The ADV 160 has been upgraded to a 156.9 c.c. 4-valve single-cylinder water-cooled eSP+ engine and the power figures have been slightly increased to 15.8PS and 14.7Nm, and is equipped with HSTC anti-skid, and offers ABS and CBS braking safety versions are available for sale.

The ADV 160 is also equipped with traction equipment that is increasingly important to the white brand Skoda now.

The ADV 160 is also equipped with the ADV 160.

Although the exterior still looks rugged from a distance, there are actually design changes in many parts of the car body. The previous generation of 150 has a lot of layers in the overall body, angles and lines look quite sharp and hardcore, while the revised 160 has a lot of folding and cutting lines on the body, in addition to more urban style, but also adds a lot of texture. The instrumentation has also been changed from a similar layout to the previous generation X-ADV to a design that resembles the current CBR/CB650R and CBR500R with the introduction of the HSTC display.

The general appearance ratio is the same, but the layout and design of the shell is a little different. The ADV 160’s instrumentation is similar in both color and layout. The manual adjustability of the windscreen is still retained, and the angle is higher in this revision. The front and rear seat height difference cushion configuration, this time more emphasis on the low seat height and feet on the ground. The cabin space is increased by 2L.

The rest of the ADV 160’s equipment and vehicle specifications are nearly identical to those of the ADV 150, including the 14-inch front and 13-inch rear tire blocks, wide naked handlebars, rear SHOWA double-shock, and USB charging in the glove box, and Keyless, all of which remain intact. The wide handlebar configuration has easier handling and also uses SHOWA double shot rear shock to take into account non-paved and road riding. The same Keyless with a gas stove-like switch.

What is the difference between Honda ADV-150 and PCX150?

Frame and Chassis Comparison

The chassis of Honda ADV-150 and PCX 150 have the same basic form, using both double cradle forms for excellent flexibility. The two cross tubes will be tight iron buckles to make the frame stronger, but the ADV-150 this frame is 2.4 kg lighter than the old PCX150 in details.

Shape wise they have different design and shape, internal details will be different, for example due to different angles, bodywork, speedometer, mounting lines, rear suspension, brake lights, pedal position and many other details, different architectures make up different models.

Engine

The engine base is the same under the same frame, although the engine is the same but there are slight differences in the details. Honda also improved a focus on the adv-150 to prevent low RPM vibration, some previous PCX 150 users have responded to the vibration problem, the idle RPM reset on the ADV-150 can be very good to suppress this situation.

Differences in the engines of the two cars include: both injectors have 6 holes, but different part codes, different air filter intakes, and different intake hose locations. the ADV-150 has a larger filter cap, and the different exhaust design helps get better acceleration. the ADV-150 has 46.6 km / L fuel consumption, while the PCX 150 has 45 km / L fuel consumption. The ADV-150 has a more efficient fuel efficiency.

Suspension

There are still some differences between the PCX150 and the ADV-150 in the suspension section, with Honda offering a longer suspension for the ADV-150 to improve its ability to cope with wilderness conditions.

ADV-150 front suspension travel: 460mm, rear suspension travel: 395mm.

PCX150 front suspension travel: 430mm and rear suspension travel: 350mm.

From the above composition, it is already obvious that there are some differences between the suspensions of the two cars. One may ask, can the ADV-150 suspension be installed on the PCX 150 to get the feeling of the ADV-150? Because the positioning and tuning of the two cars are different, although in principle they can be interchanged, they may not bring the imagined effect.

ESS (Emergency Stop Alert)

On the ABS type ADV-150 is equipped with a new Emergency Brake Alert (ESS) function, which is also used on the CBR150R as a derivative of the Gold Wing platform technology. When the brakes are working at speeds above 50km/h, the ESS will automatically activate the hazard warning lights (double flashers) so that it can warn surrounding traffic, especially vehicles at the rear, and can go some way to avoiding a possible accident. However, unlike the normal double flashers, the ESS lights flash more frequently, a feature that is not available on the PCX150.

Instrument panel

Differences between the ECU and wiring, the ADV-150 also has more sensors than the PCX150. While the PCX has a richer feature set, the ADV-150’s LCD display gauges are larger and display more diverse information. The Honda ADV-150 is able to provide not only general display information, but also displays including surrounding temperatures, battery voltage, and more.

Wheels

Tire specification comparison.

Honda ADV-150 wheel specifications: front 110/50’14” (2.5″ wide), rear 130/70 14″ (3.5″ wide)

Honda PCX-150 wheel specifications: front 110/80’14” (2.5″ wide), rear 120/70’14” (3.5″ wide)

Why do Businesses Need Human resource Consulting Services?

Published

on

Human resource

Human resource consulting firms play a vital role in today’s business landscape. They offer several key benefits and importance to organizations:

Expertise and Specialization:

HR consultants bring specialized knowledge and expertise to the table. They stay up-to-date with the latest HR trends, best practices, and legal regulations. This expertise is precious for businesses without dedicated HR staff or require support in complex HR areas.

Cost-Effective Solutions:

Engaging HR consultants can often be more cost-effective than hiring and maintaining an in-house HR department. Businesses can access high-quality HR services as needed, reducing fixed labor costs.

Customization:

HR consultants tailor their services to meet the specific needs of each client. Whether recruitment, employee training, or policy development, consultants design solutions that align with the organization’s unique goals and challenges.

Objective Perspective:

Consultants offer an objective and impartial perspective on HR matters. They can provide insights and recommendations without being influenced by internal biases or politics, which can be valuable for making difficult HR decisions.

Efficiency and Productivity:

HR consultants can streamline HR processes, making them more efficient. This can improve productivity, as employees spend less time on administrative tasks and more on strategic activities.

Compliance and Risk Management:

HR consultants help organizations comply with labor laws and regulations, reducing the risk of legal issues, fines, and reputational damage. They also assist in implementing best practices for risk management.

Strategic Focus:

Organizations can free up their internal resources by outsourcing HR tasks to consultants to focus on core business activities and strategic initiatives. This can lead to improved business performance and growth.

Scalability:

HR consulting firms can adapt to an organization’s changing needs. Whether a business is expanding, downsizing, or facing other transitions, consultants can provide flexible HR solutions to support these changes.

Access to Technology:

Many HR consulting firms have access to advanced HR technology and software solutions that may be cost-prohibitive for smaller organizations to implement independently. This technology can enhance HR processes and data management.

Talent Acquisition and Development:

HR consultants excel in talent acquisition and development. They can help organizations attract top talent, assess employee potential, and implement training and development programs to improve workforce skills.

Confidentiality:

HR consultants are bound by confidentiality agreements, ensuring that sensitive HR issues and employee data are handled with discretion and professionalism.

Conflict Resolution:

Consultants can mediate and assist in resolving workplace conflicts and issues, promoting a harmonious work environment.

Global Expertise:

 For businesses with international operations, HR consultants with global expertise can help navigate the complexities of international HR regulations and practices.

In summary, human resources consulting firms provide valuable support to organizations by offering expertise, cost-effective solutions, and a strategic approach to managing their workforce.

Their ability to adapt to changing needs, ensure compliance, and improve HR processes makes them an essential resource for businesses looking to thrive in today’s competitive environment.

PayPal quietly reintroduces $2,500 “misinformation” fine

Published

on

By

PayPal

Not long after issuing an apology and retracting a $2,500 fine to its users, PayPal has quietly re-introduced the fine into their terms of service and legal agreements.

If enforced, the leading payment processor could fine users the hefty $2,500 sum for spreading “misinformation,” or “hate”, or whatever they deem “unfit for publication.”

While the wording has been changed up, the company has listed several things they would consider fining users over, purely based on speech:

PayPal restricted and prohibited activities

  • The promotion of hate, violence, racial or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory or the financial exploitation of a crime
  • Items that are considered obscene
  • Certain sexually oriented materials or services
  • Act in a manner that is defamatory, trade libelous, threatening or harassing
  • Provide false, inaccurate or misleading information

The original documents, which PayPal said were published in error, had much looser language on what would get users fined $2,500 over – namely the “sending, posting, or publication” of any “messages, content, or materials” that are “harmful, obscene, harassing, or objectionable.”

PayPal has seemingly taken a firm stance against adult / pornographic content in both policies, while the former prohibited things that “depict or appear to depict nudity, sexual or other intimate activities” the new policy vaguely prohibits “certain sexually oriented materials or services.”

Employee Retention Tax Credit 2022

Published

on

The employee retention tax credit 2022 (ERC) is a tax credit available to employers who keep and retain their employees. The credit is available to employers with 100 or fewer full-time employees. It applies to qualifying wages paid to employees during the business’s first quarter.

If your business is a small business, you can use Form 941-X to claim the credit retroactively.

Employers with 100 or fewer full-time employees

Employers with 100 or fewer employees are eligible to claim a refundable payroll tax credit called the Employee Retention Tax Credit.

This credit was created by Congress under the CARES Act to encourage employers to retain employees. It was originally set to expire on January 1, 2022, but Congress has extended the credit twice. This means that eligible employers can still claim the credit for their taxes for 2020 and 2021.

The credit is limited to wages paid between March 12 and Sept. 30, 2021. In addition, wages paid under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) cannot qualify for the credit. The credit amount is limited to $5,000 per full-time employee in 2020. In 2021, it increases to $7,000 per quarter, with a total credit of up to $21,000 per employee.

Paycheck Protection Program loans are not eligible for the employee retention tax credit

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a tax break for businesses that offer a payroll protection program for their employees. Until recently, employers could not qualify for both programs at the same time. But the new legislation has changed this and now businesses can take advantage of both programs.

To receive the credit, employers must file a Form 941-X, or Adjusted Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return, for each quarter that an employee was a PPP borrower.

The credit is based on wages paid between March 13 and Dec. 31, 2020. For the third quarter of each year, the credit is available for up to $10,000 per employee.

Qualified wages are based on the quarter the business began

To qualify as a severely distressed employer, your business must have had a 90% decline in gross receipts in the previous year.

You must have employed at least one person during this time. The CARES Act does not apply to businesses that are still operating, but it does apply to those that have ceased operations and declined in gross receipts.

Form 941-X is used to retroactively file

The IRS has recently released a new form called Form 941-X. The new form is designed to be filed retroactively and corrects any mistakes that you may have made in filing your original Form 941.

The form must be filed no later than two years after you paid the tax. To file this form, you will need to mail it to the IRS. The IRS does not have the capability to accept it online. If you’ve made significant changes to your business, you may be eligible to claim the ERC. The ERC is equal to 6.4% of the wages you paid to employees during the credit generating period. This credit is not available to corporations with more than 500 employees
